Waiting On Wednesday (2)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine where we spotlight the upcoming releases that we are super excited for!

This week I am waiting on...

Breathe by Sarah Crossan

UK Release Date:11th October 2012

Pre-order it now on Amazon

"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?
" (Summary from Goodreads)

I am loving that cover, aren't you? I love those purply hues and the kind of vaguely sci-fi feel the cover has to it. And how awesome does the book itself sound? That's right. AWESOME! A world where the government controls even the air people breathe??! I can't wait to read it!

What do you think? What are you waiting on this week? Leave me your opinions/thoughts/links/whatever you feel like... below! :)

  11. I'm reading this one at the moment! I'm not sure of it .. or perhaps I'm just not in the mood for a dystopian novel right now?
