My Biggest Book Haul in a While (My Trip to the Ripped Bodice: Romance and YA)
On top of that, they had the most lovely bookseller I've ever encountered. She guided my grandma, who said she hadn't read romance in ages, through what historical romance she might like, and I asked her one of the more random questions I could've to see if she could recommend any YA contemporaries that took place over 24 hours. I figured it was a long shot, but I needed them for a writing project and had come up blank myself even though I knew they were out there. Not only did she immediately find a couple that were close like Rise to the Sun and See You Yesterday, she came back to me ten minutes later with a sticky note full of suggestions that they didn't have in stock at the moment. I was so impressed by every part of the store, and I'm excited for the next chance I'll have to visit again.
So without further ado, here's a recap of the massive stack of books I got from The Ripped Bodice that will take me all summer to finish.
