Finding a good local bookstore is getting really hard to do these days. Which is sad because that doesn't mean they're not popular anymore, and especially with the release of Netflix's You, the bookstore vibe is definitely still something that people want to experience. In the heart of Texas there's the most adorable "You"-looking Houston book shop that's a must-visit, just don't talk to any creepy stalkers called Joe!

Kaboom Books in Houston is such a good find because it's so pretty and aesthetically pleasing. However, it's not just a pretty place to visit, this independently owned bookstore has over a hundred thousand curated used books so you're bound to find a new good read.

It is such a cute bookstore, it makes for a really fun and unique date idea. You and your date (not Joe) can browse the aisles together and maybe even snap a few cute pics!

Kaboom's outside is just as picture-perfect as the inside and their backyard has a ton of greenery and cute patio seating that makes it the perfect spot for reading.

There are even live events that the spot puts on pretty often.

If you're curious to see when their next event or reading is, you should follow them on Twitter, they also retweet a lot of literary news so if you're into books, they're definitely worth a follow.

Luckily for us, it looks like we'll be seeing more bookstores on screen because Joe himself accidentally confirmed You is going to have a third season.

If you want to visit more local bookstores, Texas has a bunch of hidden gems and Dallas's three-story bookstore is definitely a must-see.
