Yelp on Wednesday released its list of the top bookstores in the Lone Star State, based on user ratings.

The Twig Book Shop at the Pearl landed at No. 21 and Nine Lives Books at the Oak Hills Shopping Center landed at No. 24, according to the list.

“We identified businesses in the Bookstores category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews,” Yelp said in a news release.

The Twig Book Shop has a rating of 4/5 stars on Yelp, and reviewers said it sells “a wide variety of books and little trinkets.”

“They have all kinds of fun displays to get you interested in the latest novel or cookbook,” another review said.
