Waiting on Wednesday (52)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers discuss the books that they are most anxiously waiting for! (And this fabulous button was designed by my dear blogger friend Lindsay at The Violet Hour)

This week I'm waiting on...

Breathe by Sarah Crossan
© 2 October 2012 by Greenwillow
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?
Doesn't that sound interesting? I'm hoping that it stands on its own among the many other dystopian-type novels that have inundated the market lately. And check it--love triangle with two girls here??

Add it to your Goodreads shelf!

Also, I figured I would combine this post with W.W.W. Wednesdays...so here is some more info about my reading for this week! To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…Grab the logo...and post your link at Should Be Reading!

School has REALLY slowed down my reading! Between a FT job, a PT job, a middle school library practicum, and a reader's advisory class, I feel like I only get about 1/4 of the time I used to for my own reading.  It's really sad!

What are you currently reading?

And oh God oh God you're listening to Monsters of Men, I LOVE CHAOS WALKING TRILOGY. I think I didn't say that today yet lol. My obsession with these books is totally out of control.

Here's my WoW. ♥

Wow, that sounds awesome! I love dystopian novels. :D The thought of a cooperation ruling because it has manufactured O2-rich air is sooo realistic!

Adriana Ryan said...

 Whoops, I meant "corporation"!
