Waiting on Wednesday: Breathe (Breathe #1) by Sarah Crossan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

Inhale. Exhale. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe . . .

The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.

has been stealing for a long time. She’s a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she’s never been caught before. If she’s careful, it’ll be easy. If she’s careful.

should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it’s also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn’t every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they’d planned a trip together, the two of them, and she’d hoped he’d discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

Expected Release Date:  October 2, 2012
Publisher: Greenwillow

  4. Patricia

    This book looks so cool! I love what they did with the cover!! :)

    By the way, I also love your theme! I don’t know if it’s on purpose but the “Comments” is beside and not above the actual textarea. Might have to change that. (If it is on purpose, then sorry! XD)

  20. Allie Rose

    This book sounds so good! It’s scary to think about living in a world where air is produced and distrubited, or even carying around oxygen tanks to stay alive. Great pick!

    My choice this week.

  21. manda-rae

    This definitely sounds captivating. The cover looks so interesting. I’ll have to be on the lookout for this one.

    My WoW. Don’t forget to check out my giveaway.

    I have been wanting to read this book too, I have been trying to take a break from dystopian books because I feel like I have been reading too many and then I compare them and get discouraged but, so many good ones are coming out I want to get back into them!
    MY WOW:
    your newest follower,
