The Reason Why I Am in Love with Your Soul


“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” -Cicero


Pada hari Valentine ini, aku akan menceritakan tentang bookstore yang aku datangi di akhir tahun lalu dan aku jatuh cinta sekali lagi pada tempat ini.

Desember 2016 kemarin, aku diberi kesempatan untuk mendatangi salah satu negara paling berpengaruh terhadap perekonomian dunia, Amerika.. Kota yang aku datangi merupakan kota terpadat kedua di negara tersebut, yaitu Los Angeles.

Walking into a bookstore always makes my heart beats because there's something magical inside and it feels like it has a soul.

Siapa yang menyangka bahwa kota semodern LA memiliki bookstore dimana di dalamnya terdapat buku versi-versi awal. Dari baunya saja udah kecium bau kertas-kertas tua. Hehehehehehe...

Synopsis


Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...

This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...

Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...

Synopsis


Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are... nowhere to be found. Or are they?

Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there.

Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters... and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia. It's a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram's makeshift army.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men; Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene is set for an epic battle... but who can be named the winner when both have so much to lose?
