Hole Up With Your Favorite Romance

Whether it’s a timeless classic like ‘Pride and Prejudice‘, or something entirely new like ‘The Unhoneymooners’ or ‘The Love Hypothesis’—this is the perfect weather to dig those romances novels out and re-read them. We know bookworms rarely get the time to re-read their favorites because there are so many new books to read every day.

But sometimes, the weather calls for something that you can find comfort in, and this is when re-reading your favorites holed up in a cozy corner is the right thing to do.

When in Doubt, Scrabble it out

You can’t really leave your house during a storm without risking your life, so what should you do when the boredom rolls in? Challenge your roommate, or one of your family members to a game of scrabble, of course!

Whoever you’re stuck with is likely feeling the storm anxiety too, but don’t fret—you can end it with your competitive streak. Flatten the board and line the tiles; it’s time to give your mind something to mull over.
