Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.

This is my first time participating, but I want to make sure I'm using my blog to share my love of reading - not just reviews. goes my first "Waiting on Wednesday" post, and I picked one of my favorite authors

I heart Lindsey Leavitt. I first fell in love with her because of her Princess for Hire series, which I read because she was appearing at my local B&N with Rachel Hawkins. I wanted to make sure I read Leavitt's book before meeting her, and I have been a fan ever since.

Title: 'Going Vintage'
Author: Lindsey Leavitt
Release Date: March 26, 2013
Publisher: Bloomsbury

Summary (from Goodreads):
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 in1962, 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.

What are you waiting for this week?

Happy Reading!
