Must Monday

Must Monday is a feature I started years ago where I spotlight one book that is not out yet but I am dying to read and review.

Going VintageGoing Vintage
Lindsey Leavitt

When Mallory discovers that her boyfriend, Jeremy, is cheating on her with an online girlfriend, she swears off boys. She also swears off modern technology. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, Mallory decides to "go vintage" and return to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn’t cheat on you online). 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. But the list is trickier than it looks. And obviously finding a steady is out . . . no matter how good Oliver (Jeremy’s cousin) smells. But with the help of her sister, she’ll get it done. Somehow.

Why I want to read it: 
What a cute and unique idea. Sometimes I wish I had lived in a simpler time. This would be a nice escape from reality.
