Writing up this post made me see just how badly behind I am on writing reviews. Too much reading and not enough writing. But now that school’s out the daily pace around our home has calmed down quite a bit, so that should help out. The last two weeks of June I just had a complete burnout. But now I’m back on track (thank god cause the laundry pile has never been so ginormous!)

Weird. Strange. Unusual. Keywords.

Well, it seems that June was not a very interesting search word month. Most of the searches from June were for reviews, essays, comparisons and reading analysis (no idea how on earth to pluralize that one!) Here are a couple that made me giggle or shake my head in wonder.

Pam Anderson Getting Wrinkles
What did you really think she wasn’t human? Or still at least 25% non-plastic ingredients :P Check out this picture of Pamela that was posted on JustJared last year! She’s not getting wrinkles, she’s got them!

How To Shape-Shift Into A Housecat 
Okay, if I knew how to do that I would be a housecat right now. My cat lives a life of luxury, eating when she wants, sleeping wherever and whenever she wants a nap, only allowing attention when she decides to be friendly. That’s the life!

You May Be A Zombie But I Am A Magical Unicorn Queen

LMAO! This is awesome, cause I thought all the magic unicorn royals were dead. My pet zombie is gonna be having a magically delicious snack now.

Zombie Smiley Face Pictures
I’m pretty sure that pic of Pammy counts, but in case you want a smiling zombie that’s not falling apart, here’s a pretty pin-up.

You had a great month in June! I've been feeling a little burnout myself so I definitely understand reading more than you review. What did you think of Y: The Last Man series?

Joanne said...

@ Vasilly
I'd picked up the Y:Last Man Series because I thought it was a neat idea to follow the adventure of the last male on earth. A friend told me I would be completely blown away by the story, the emotional vibes and the controversial themes (women.v.man, cloning, societal roles) and I have to agree 100% It's fascinating and addictive!

Pammy is getting really scary looking. Yikes.

I can't wait to see what you thought of The Road. I loved that book!


Dar said...

Wow, you had such an awesome month! Yup, I'd say Pam is getting scary looking.

When you figure out how to shape-shift, please pass the information along! I'd like to be my mother-in-law's dog.

You had a really good month!

and ohh my! Pam does have wrinkles LOL! of course she has :)

I think Pam is single-handedly keeping the eye and lip liner industries in business. She's looking a little scary these days!

You had some great reading in the last month! :)I love the graphic you use to compile your reading stats. I'll be curious on hearing your thoughts on the Disreputable history (if, like me, you don't forget to review it! :P )

Anna said...

Great month! Love the hilarious search terms and how you break down your stats. I wish I was that organized.

Great reading month!! Thats alot of books!

Kailana said...

Lots of good reads there! Glad things are calming down for you. :)

You continue to amaze and astound. good work. I've got a B&N card - should I buy the Rosemary and Rue?

Linda said...

Y:The last Man is definitely one of my favorite graphic novels.
I love your tally card. Absolutely adorable!

Debi said...

28 books?!! I shall now go cry over my own pathetic-ness.

I'm wondering if it was my 6-year-old who found you through "How To Shape-Shift Into A Housecat." He spends good amounts of time on regular basis trying to will cat ears and a tail to sprout from his body. Any unsuspecting adult who asks him what he wants to be when he grows up, gets "A cat!" for an answer.

I love your blog and book list! So Impressed with your June totals. Is the Reading Stats list some type of downloadable widget or did you create it yourself? I'd love to make one myself - it's so nice to see a book list so well organized!
