Going Vintage

Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

(Coming March 26th, 2013)

“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. Lindsey Leavitt perfectly pairs heartfelt family moments, laugh-out-loud humor, and a little bit of romance in this delightful contemporary novel.”

My Thoughts

This book is lots of fun and absolutely fabulous, just like its cover! Definitely a winner for me, I can’t wait to review it!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

“Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?

Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan’s life. Having missed her flight, she’s stuck at JFK airport and late to her father’s second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley’s never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport’s cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s sitting in her row.

A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?

Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it.

My Thoughts

I got this book from the library, but I love it so much I’ll be on the lookout for a book sale so I can buy it. Definitely looking forward to Jennifer’s next book, This is What Happy Looks Like!

Meant to Be

Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question. 

It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she’s queen of following rules and being prepared. That’s why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that’s also why she’s chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB (“meant to be”).

But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.

Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.

My Thoughts

I’m so glad that I won this book, I’ve been hearing so many good things about it!

Stealing Heaven

Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

My Thoughts

The character exploration and wittiness in this book were spot-on and made it stand out to me. You can read my full review here.

My name is Danielle. I’m eighteen. I’ve been stealing things for as long as I can remember.

Dani has been trained as a thief by the best–her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connections, real friends–a real life.

In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She’s making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the “real” Dani–because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they’ve targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she’s always known–or the one she’s always wanted.

What books did you get this week?

    Im jealous!! Going Vintage looks SO cute and is definitely on my TBR list. Stastical Prob. was a super quick read its only like a little over 200 pages. Everyone seems to love Meant to Be so you’ll probably like it too… i thought it was cute.

    • I thought Going Vintage and Statistical Prob. were both fun reads! Honesty, I’m having some trouble with the review for Meant to Be…I thought it was cute too but I was kind of disappointed in it. Maybe because I kept hearing too much hype about it? Thanks for stopping by & commenting! :)

  12. Going Vintage and The Statistical Probability both look adorable! I can’t wait for your reviews. Meant to Be has been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read- hopefully it will be good as everyone says. (:

    Enjoy all of your new books!
