Cover I Love: Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

I'm not sure when it was I first heard about Lindsey Leavitt's new novel, Going Vintage, but I was sold on the premise: A girl is brokenhearted after her boyfriend cheats on her with an online girlfriend. So she decides to give up modern technology and live by a list of goals written by her grandmother in 1962.

If I could, I would totally be a mod 60s girl (too bad being fashionably vintage is also terribly expensive!) So the next best thing is to read about it, right? And when I saw the cover release for Going Vintage I knew I had to share! Who else shares my affinity for 60s culture? And isn't this the greatest cover ever??

  3. I love vintage, my sister is a thrifter and her house is adorable with all her amazing finds. She recently found an old school map of England for me, I am so excited to hang it. She even sells vintage clothes on etsy. Have you seen SNL's Bein Quirky with Zooey Deschenal? They kind of make fun of the vintage girls but I can laugh at myself.

  5. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention! Based on the cover alone, I would have read it but it sounds like a super fun story.
