Video Veneris

Sarah Crossan's Breathe is one of the fall books that I'm most looking forward to - you can see my Waiting on Wednesday post about it here.

That's why I'm super excited to be able to share a video with you today about Breathe. In it Sarah talks about how Breathe and the world she created came to be.

As the premise of this book - where air literally costs you - is one I find incredibly appealing, I loved finding how it came to be and hope you will, too . . .


the synopsis for Breathe (thank you 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?

Thank you to Alison at Harper for giving me the video to post!
