Got my eye appointment sorted out and it went well but I need more tests for my left eye from the eye clinic as it decreased again, so got some snacks to have while reading more of the book. :)

Decided to read a short book instead as my left eye has been bugging me and I’m at my appointment for it, so hoping ‘The Builders’ by Maeve Binchy will help.

I am absolutely obsessed with this beautiful edition of the tales of king arthur and I can’t wait to read it 🤎
I’m also glad I found this copy of Oscar Wilde’s plays because Lady Windermere’s Fan has been on my tbr for a while now!

Had to sort out some light pyjamas for tonight as I’m sweltering from the heat even with the fan on, while I got onto the second story of the book already. :)

Absolutely loved reading the different Scottish folklore with the last book I read, I really need to read more folktales and urban legends more often. :) My next read is ‘Horrid Henry’s Revenge’ by Francesca Simon. :)

The driving force behind Lord Of The Rings is evil secondhand jewelry, and anyone who has ever bought secondhand jewelry can back me up when I say there’s always an evil looking piece (necklace, ring, what have you) in every secondhand jewelry display. There is always someone daring enough to buy it. They almost always joke, “It looks so cursed! I love it!” What I’m trying to say is Bilbo is one of these people and I feel it is only a matter of time before one of these cursed pieces of jewelry turn out to actually be cursed. I await that day.

Ask from this post
ALRIGHTY SO this would either be a one shot or a shorter multi-chapter fic but once I got the idea I liked it a lot.
One shot idea I came up with and will probably never write:
High School (or college idk) theatre AU where Catra is lead actress for the play/musical that’s being put on, Glimmer is also in the cast and Bow is in the school’s pit orchestra that plays for the show. Adora’s the star athlete for whatever sport is happening that season.
A bit before tech week people in the crew drop out for whatever reason which causes panic because “fuck we need people for crew” (respect the crew people they’re just as important to the show as the actors) and while some of the cast can do some of the tasks they’re spreading it a bit thin and still need people.
Glimmer and Bow convince Adora to help out with crew for the show for whatever reason her team isn’t playing much/has a break. Adora does and for most scene change things/quick change stuff she’s assigned to help Catra because Adora strong and willing to help with anything and Catra will make sure she doesn’t fuck something up. They’ve kinda known each other for a while because mutual friends but never really had time to interact until this.
They flirt and shit and it’s cute and gay and idk if it ends with one asking the other out or what but I just really want a cute romance between the lead performer and their helpful jock techie

Y’all...
The libby overdrive app is amazing.
It gives you access to thousands of ebooks and audiobooks from your local library! It is amazing!
All you need is a library card and they will help you set up a pin to login as well.
This app is incredible! Instead of giving more money to Amazon you can make the most of you tax dollars and support local libraries!!!
Annnndd— if they do have the title you want right now you can just add your name to a waiting list and use the tags to find something related to read!
