Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt.
Publication Date: March 26th 2013
|Going Vintage - Bloomsbury|
When Mallory’s boyfriend, Jeremy, cheats on her with an online girlfriend, Mallory decides the best way to de-Jeremy her life is to de-modernize things too. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, Mallory swears off technology and returns to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn’t cheat with computer avatars). The List:
1. Run for pep club secretary
2. Host a fancy dinner party/soiree
3. Sew a dress for Homecoming
4. Find a steady
5. Do something dangerous
But simple proves to be crazy-complicated, and the details of the past begin to change Mallory’s present. Add in a too-busy grandmother, a sassy sister, and the cute pep-club president–who just happens to be her ex’s cousin–and soon Mallory begins to wonder if going vintage is going too far.
Synopsis from goodreads.com.
I like vintage things, such as Tiffany lamps or 50's furniture, so the cover of Going Vintage caught my attention straight away. The synopsis sounds great and I totally get Mallory's decision to return to a time that seems more simple in hindsight, especially after her boyfriend cheated on her online. Admittedly, changing your life this drastically sounds like fun, but it's not easy to go back in time when everybody else goes forward. So there are quite some complications waiting for her I would guess. Will she make it to the end of her list inspite of it all? And which danger will she face for number five on the list?
