Can’t Wait Wednesday – IN AN ABSENT DREAM by Seanan McGuire


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is IN AN ABSENT DREAM by Seanan McGuire.  The beautiful cover is what initially drew me to this book, but then when I read about this world built on logic, reason, riddles, and lies and learned that is also a goblin market involved, my curiosity was definitely piqued.  And of course, I’m all about this girl who has no interest in living up to whatever society’s expectations for her are.


IN AN ABSENT DREAM by Seanan McGuire

Publication Date:  January 8, 2019



From Goodreads

This is the story of a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.

When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she’s found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.

    Haaa, My TTT this week had Seanan McGuire on it and I replied to a comment about how every time I think I have a handle on what I want to read, she releases a new one — and then I see this post, which proves me right — and yes, I am so adding this to my TBR lol

    That sounds very intriguing. Kind of Alice in Wonderland, maybe, only for grown-ups? Not sure, but sure is, this will go on my wishlist for next year. Thanks for sharing.
    My pick

    Best wishes
