TSS: June 2010 Wrap-Up: Commentors and Search Terms

July 4, 2010

The Sunday Salon.comHappy Sunday! So, some stuff happened this week. Nothing much, y’know, no biggie, but I’m now officially Dr. Fyrefly. :) I’ve spent the weekend working on book reviews, reading (I tore through John Green & David Levithan’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson yesterday, and it was all kinds of wonderful), and generally decompressing. It’s been lovely!

If you missed Friday’s post, head over there to check out my post-Ph.D. giveaway!


Many thanks to this past month’s commentors! It’s been so wonderful knowing that there are people out there cheering for me!

Search Terms

what else to read if i like libba bray
Depends on which Libba Bray book(s) you liked, since I think the Great and Terrible Beauty books are so very different from Going Bovine. If you like the historical fantasy books, I’d try The Fire Rose by Mercedes Lackey or some of Patricia C. Wrede’s books. If you liked Going Bovine, I’d say anything by John Green or The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.

lemon cake tastes like
Monkeys! Also, probably lemons.

firefly reading light chinese story
Well, I read Under Heaven, which is based on Chinese history, but at 580 pages I wouldn’t exactly call it “light.”

poems about tomatoes
Let’s see what I can do:

There was a tomato from York
made into sauce you can’t eat with a fork.
It said: “I don’t want to be ketchup;
’cause the thought makes me retch up,
that people might eat me with pork.”

Okay, that was terrible. This is clearly why I work in the sciences.

    I love your poem! Congratulations, Dr. Fyrefly! I still haven’t read anything by John Green or David Levithan but I hope to one day. Here is my mailbox this week. Happy reading!

    Oh, I’ve never had lemon cake that tastes like monkeys! But I keep trying: every time I go to Starbucks I get the RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED lemon pound cake, just to see if it will taste like monkeys…

      rhapsody – See, that just doesn’t seem right, that they can charge that much for non-monkeyified lemon cake.
