There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing Waiting on Wednesday. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.
Author: Lindsay Smith
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Publication date: October 6, 2015
Summary (via Goodreads): A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.
Livia is a dreamstrider. She can inhabit a subject’s body while they are sleeping and, for a short time, move around in their skin. She uses her talent to work as a spy for the Barstadt Empire. But her partner, Brandt, has lately become distant, and when Marez comes to join their team from a neighboring kingdom, he offers Livia the option of a life she had never dared to imagine. Livia knows of no other dreamstriders who have survived the pull of Nightmare. So only she understands the stakes when a plot against the Empire emerges that threatens to consume both the dreaming world and the waking one with misery and rage.
A richly conceived world full of political intrigue and fantastical dream sequences, at its heart Dreamstrider is about a girl who is struggling to live up to the potential before her.
Why I Chose This Book:
This book sounds intriguing. Plus it’s gotten great reviews so far. I’m newer to reading fantasy and/or spy books, but they’re really interesting so I cannot wait to read this one. On top of all that, I got to interview the author as part of the Sunday Street Team. It was my first author interview, so that was pretty exciting. My interview with Lindsay will be posted on October 25th!
