Wishlist Wednesday: Past Perfect

Past Perfect 
Leila Sales
October 4th, 2011

All Chelsea wants to do this summer is hang out with her best friend, hone her talents as an ice cream connoisseur, and finally get over Ezra, the boy who broke her heart. But when Chelsea shows up for her summer job at Essex Historical Colonial Village (yes, really), it turns out Ezra’s working there too. Which makes moving on and forgetting Ezra a lot more complicated…even when Chelsea starts falling for someone new.

Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think that a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past. But with Ezra all too present, and her new crush seeming all too off limits, all Chelsea knows is that she’s got a lot to figure out about love. Because those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it….

Imma be honest - I really had no interest in reading this book.  Or reading about this book - I took one look at the cover, assumed it was some cheesy contemporary girly love story, and put it in the Nope column.  But then I started reading all of these really good reviews of it that talked about how it was this great slice of quirky nerdy and suitable for those who wish they owned a petticoat (which,  yes, does describe me), and I realize I didn't know a thing about what this book was actually about.  And yall, it's about war reenactors.   I mean, that's not all it's about, but that's some nerdery I can get behind, you know?  And we all know I love quirky.

What's on your wishlist?


  1. I feel as though I've heard more about Leila's other book MOSTLY GOOD GIRLS. However, considering the fact that my best friend is an archivist and when she visited we went to numerous historic sites, I think I'd geek out over this one. It's going on my wishlist!

  2. Sounds pretty cute.

    And I like your honesty. I look forward to your review.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
