Going Vintage

Going Vintage By Lindsey Leavitt
Symbiosis: 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.

My Rating: 4/5 worlds. 
I'm very surprised at how much I liked this book. The characters are quite well rounded, and lovable. Mallory seems a lot like me, and I love the relatable-ness. See the love? I like how desperate Jeremy gets at one point, and he seemed like such a strange guy! XD
 And Oliver. He's perfectly unperfect. Every flaw has an equal perfection! He's just... WOW. Telling the truth I've been trying to stay away from romance-y books, because they're starting to annoy me! (It's hard because there's so many of them!) But this one I slightly enjoyed. Slightly. Me through the whole book: 

Anyway, I like the book overall. The only thing I have a problem with is the vintage stuff. I thought it would be based on the vintage thing and get into it more when it just was overall how it would happen. I can't get over it. Yes, a good book. But no, not like I expected. 

In the end it was a great book. Could be better, but a pretty great book!
