In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

I’ll go with a book and a treat.

Empty by Suzanne Weyn – I’m fascinated to read about futuristic books thinking about running out of oil… I read a few dystopia books with that theme, my favorite is Crunch by Leslie Connor. I’m looking forward to reading!
Empty summary from Goodreads: “A dystopic look at what happens to one American town when all the fossil fuels run out… It’s the near future – the very near future – and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be. Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope – there has to be hope – just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.”
Crunch summary from Goodreads: “Dewey Marriss is stuck in the middle of a crunch.
He never guessed that the gas pumps would run dry the same week he promised to manage the family’s bicycle-repair business. Suddenly everyone needs a bike. And nobody wants to wait.
Meanwhile, the crunch has stranded Dewey’s parents far up north with an empty fuel tank and no way home. It’s up to Dewey and his older sister, Lil, to look after their younger siblings and run the bike shop all on their own.
Each day Dewey and his siblings feel their parents’ absence more and more. The Marriss Bike Barn is busier than ever. And just when he is starting to feel crunched himself, Dewey discovers that bike parts are missing from the shop. He’s sure he knows who’s responsible–or does he? Will exposing the thief only make more trouble for Dewey and his siblings?
Award-winning author Leslie Connor has created another timely family story infused with humor and hope.”
