“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly post, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine , where we spotlight a book we are anxiously waiting to be published.

Going Vintage
By Lindsey Leavitt
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Release Date: March 19, 2013

The story of a girl figuring out the truths and illusions of life and love, both in the nostalgic past and in the very real now. Laugh-out-loud humor combines with a hint of romance in this delightful contemporary novel.

The cure for a broken heart? Go vintage and live like it’s 1962! Mallory’s boyfriend, Jeremy, isn’t just cheating on her. He’s cheating with an online girlfriend. So Mallory decides to swear off boys and modern technology. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, Mallory decides to “go vintage” and return to a simpler time. She sets out to complete grandma’s list: run for pep club secretary, host a dinner party, sew a homecoming dress, find a steady, do something dangerous.

The list proves to be trickier than it looks. Obviously finding a steady is out . . . no matter how intriguing she finds Oliver (er, Jeremy’s cousin). But with the help of her sister, Mallory will finish the list and find peace. Somehow.

I know the release is forever away, but I saw Lindsey Leavitt’s author interview on I Am A Reader, Not A Writer. Lindsey mentioned Going Vintage, and I just had to feature it. Look at the cover! Love it! The whole premise sounds hilarious and so fun. Too bad the wait is so long.

What books are you “Waiting On” today?

  1. this sounds so funny! And original! And my mom actually always raves about how great the world was with far less technology…while I couldn't live without it! Definitely seems to be an interesting take on contemporary 😀
