I can't wait to read:
The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
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.

THIS is one badass book. Read my gushy review HERE.
Somehow, The Cure for Dreaming escaped my notice. I blame college. I feel like I should write an open letter to Ms. Winters apologizing for not already being excited about this book.
Now that I am dying of excitement, I am 'Waiting On' this book super hard. Le sigh.....
