Waiting on Wednesday #46 - The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

This week I am anticipating the fall release of Cat Winters book The Cure for Dreaming due out October 14, 2014 by Amulet Books. 

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.

Why am I waiting on this book? It's an interesting time period. And it sounds a bit like a fairy tale. Father wants the rebellion taken out of her, but instead she is given these terrible gifts. I look forward to seeing how she manages to work the gifts she is given to her advantage and the problems along the way.

So, What book are you waiting on this week?


  1. I has this for my WoW maybe a month ago... I really love Cat Winter's In the Shadow of Blackbirds and with this kind of having the same elements, I'm pretty positive that it'll be great as well.. (and that cover looks so great!) Nice pick!
