Oh no! Power Blackout During Snowstorm!
Imagine yourself in a snowstorm with a power blackout. You have to read books to pass time and comfort yourself. Which 3 books would you choose?
So like, funny thing is, back in South Africa, the electricity provider does this fun thing called loadshedding, Where, depending on which area of the town you live, your power is off. Like if the schedule says 14h00 to 16h00 – you best believe it that the electricity will go off as soon as the clock hits 14h00. Maybe it’ll be back at 16h00. Or maybe at 18h00. Recently my friends say it’s off like 5 times a day – in intervals, at least (well, mostly). But still.
I LOVE these types of tags even though they’re AWFUL because they make you CHOOSE between books and how do you do that to us??? But on with the show. This is all from my high-tbr shelf on Goodreads. I definitely think I need to maybe write a post about it 😂 I’m still going through my want-to-read shelf and seeing what’s high/top priority/what I really really want to read.
You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman – Who wants to worry about reading by candlelight when you can worry about students!!! Needing to feel they’re the best!! And then they get super stressed about it!
The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White – I mean you could just pass the time looking at the cover??? Like sure, come for the story and the King Arthur retelling. But stay for that cover.
Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee – So, say you’re reading this, right? And it’s superheroes, yeah? Now, you could imagine you’re a superhero and generate electricity 👀👀
Are you all bored of my weird jokes? Too bad, I think they’re funny 😂😂 And I have to entertain myself whilst Melbourne is going through ANOTHER temper tantrum re weather.
Are you the type of reader who wants thick reads for a blackout? Or do you just want something quick while you watch something on your laptop? Listen, we’ve got it down pat re loadshedding. We know how to prep (meaning, fill the flasks with hot water so we can still have tea and coffee when the power’s out).
