Wishlist Wednesday #10

Hellooo! Since last week it has all gone down hill with me. I feel embarrassed to say I've caught the pesky chicken pox off my little niece and nephew! It has been absolutely horrible but I'm luckily past the bad stage but I still look like a dot to dot drawing! I'm going to look a sight in uni next week! Anyway back to business: Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

 Breathe - Sarah Crossan
(Goodreads)

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.

Alina 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.

Quinn 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.

Bea 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?

I saw this great looking book mentioned on one of Dani's (from Pen to Paper) videos on youtube and instantly knew that I had to give it a look over and as soon as I saw what it was about I added it to my wishlist! In a little way it reminds me of the film Total Recall (watched the old one with Arnie in a few weeks back) as oxygen is controlled on Mars and I enjoyed the whole concept so hopefully this will be a good telling. My birthday isn't too far away and I will be treating myself to a mammoth amount of books and this might just be one of them :)
