Waiting On Wednesday: The Cure for Dreaming

The Cure for Dreaming
Author: Cat Winters
Publisher: Amulet Books
Expected Publication: October 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.

My Thoughts: In the Shadow of Blackbirds was one of my favorite novels last year and I can not wait to start reading Cat Winters newest novel The Cure for Dreaming!


  1. I'm waiting on my copy of In the Shadows of Blackbirds to arrive from the library. I saw it on the TeenReads list for this year, and added it as a book for the YA book club I host. I'm glad you said it was one of your favorite novels last year, because I was debating on reading it. I'm such a chicken and worried it would freak me out. lol I also want to read this one just because I have that feeling it will be awesome.

  2. I am sooo excited to read this one. It sounds amazing for sure. Great pick.
