I’m at an all-time low when it comes to reading. It’s already September and I’ve only finished a total of four books so far. That’s a bit sad, right? It feels really sad. Let me give you a rundown though.
Today is for sci fi! Well, on this blog anyway. I’m participating in the blog tour for Aries’ Red Sky by author James Young. I’ve read one of his books, An Unproven Concept, last year and it was pretty interesting. I’m sure this one will be, too.

I’ve been pretty chill about my goals this year because I didn’t want to put too much pressure on myself. I think I became too chill about it though. I had about nine things on my 2018 list but I can honestly say I’ve only been somewhat true to three* of them. And I say “somewhat true” because I feel like I’m only hitting the minimum with those three goals.
When June came around I was feeling pretty blah about doing a mid-year check because, you know, I’ve nothing much to show. Then I joined the Respark Challenge by Arriane Serafico of The Purposeful Creative. Respark was a 5-day challenge to help participants get the spark back into their goals and motivation. I did all challenges and though I did feel like they helped a lot, I still haven’t done anything more to really jumpstart my goals again. Insert huge sigh here. Yup, looks like I’m still pretty chill about my goals. Hah.
So I thought, maybe doing this mid-year check will help turn the spark into a bit of a flame, yeah? You know, accountability and all that. Bahaha. Anyway, here goes.
It’s been a while since my last T-Shirt Thursday, yeah? Truth be told, I haven’t been browsing my favorite graphic tee sites for a while and I really don’t buy tees that often, anyway, because I always tell myself that I need more formal-ish type tops, but then again I’ve also been trying to stop myself from buying any more clothes. I don’t need more clothes, seriously. I have too many things I don’t use – shirts, frisbee jerseys, singlets, dresses, shorts, etc. I seriously need to purge my closet again AND give away or donate the stuff I don’t use anymore. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but we (my sis and me, I mean) still have the old stuff we discarded in our last purge, which was a couple of years ago! They’re all still up in storage. MY GAHD.
ANYWAY, I’m rambling. I know I have stuff to do with my current stuff and my old stuff and I really should do something about all that this week or this month, BUT, for today, let me just share the joy I get from seeing graphic tees with seriously cool and fun art. That’s really what I love about these, anyway – the cute and awesome art! Check out the ones that caught my eye this week.
Today we’re featuring fantasy novel Asta and the Barbarians by Becca Fox. It’s an intriguing book with a really cool cover, too! Seriously, check out the blurb. You can tell right off the bat that this is a story with a really kickass heroine who’s going to kick a lot of butts.

Today we’re featuring a fantasy book How to Catch a Magical by Samuel Thews. Yay! After reading the blurb and the snippets from readers’ reviews, I got the feeling that this book is pretty fun and interesting, so I really hope to read it one of these days.
