Waiting on Wednesday 259


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose: 

"The Cure for Dreaming"
by Cat Winters
Amulet
Release Date:  Oct 14, 2014


Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.
"In the Shadow of Blackbirds" has been on my to read list for ages, and now I can't wait to read this one, too!

What are you waiting for this week???

  10. I think this story sounds fascinating though to be honest I hate the cover. It kind of creeps me out. I won't judge the book by its cover though :)
