Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. I’m SO excited about my pick this week. I absolutely loved Cat’s In the Shadow of Blackbirds, and this one looks just as spooky and wonderful. The cover was just revealed this week, check it out:
The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters. Release date: October 14 2014 (Amulet Books). This is another paranormal historical, and I’m so excited for it to be October already! Don’t you love the textured overlay on this cover design? Here’s the book description from Goodreads:
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.
