Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Happy Wednesday, cupcakes! Today is another feature of Waiting on Wednesdays hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Yay! My pick this week doesn't have a blurb yet but I chose it anyway. Normally I wouldn't, but I've been waiting and waiting for it to get one so I could feature it but my patience has apparently run out.

Resist (Breathe, #2)
Sarah Crossan
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Release Date: October 18, 2013

So, why am I waiting?

Well, I absolutely adored Breathe. It was literally one of the best dystopians I've ever read and definitely a favorite. I also love Alina, Bea, and Quinn. They're all so different, yet the have the same goal. And they get along. Furthermore, when Breathe ended I couldn't wait to know what happened next. I still feel that way.

And of course, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. It matches the first one, first with the pod and then the green to the purple. I love the dry ground with plants coming through the cracks, and the growth inside the pod. It's lovely and detailed, and I really don't want to wait to get my hands on this.


What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
Link me up! :)


  1. I'm still not so sure about picking up Breathe yet, maybe because I have a little dystopia overdose atm. but if you loved it, I can see you're hot after the sequel, and I hope you're going to love it just as much!
    My WoW, and there's also a 100 Followers Giveaway running on my blog

  2. I haven't read Breathe yet, even though I LOVE dystopians, but I'm definitely going to soon enough! Maybe a little closer to October, so I don't have to wait long for Resist :P
    And I agree, I love the covers!

    My WoW

  3. Great choice, I have Breathe but haven't started it yet! The covers for both are fabulous and I can't wait to see this one in real life.

    My WoW!

  4. I still have to read Breathe! I have an ARC, but it's hidden under a massive pile of books. Or maybe in a box. Or maybe I really don't know! I can't wait to actually read it though, and this book! Great choice - hope you get to read it early!

    Check out my WoW post!

  5. I haven't read Breath yet but I really want to!! I love this cover. Great choice (:
    I'm a new follower!! Please follow back. Thanks ^_^

    I am seriously in love with that cover, and I agree, Breathe was AMAZINNGGGGG! I requested an ARC like a few months ago right after the cover reveal because I got so excited and OMG I just love the idea, I bet the last book is going to have more flowers and it'll be like orangey yellow! But maybe that's just me thinking about the Allegiant mock up cover >.<

    Fantastic pick, Annabelle!

  7. Oooh, Breathe is on my tbr list, I can't believe the next book is coming out before I have had a chance to read the first. Must remedy that situation asap!

  8. I think I need to purchase a copy of Breathe now... Lol.

  9. I haven't read Breathe yet. I should probably do that soon because Resist sounds EPIC. Great pick!

  10. Ooo I'm looking forward to this one as well. Though I wasn't a HUGE fan of the first one, I still thought it was good. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know it had a cover!

  11. I still haven't read Breathe but I have it on my to-read list and I really want to read it. As for this one, I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out! Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  12. Another series I have yet to start. :) Cover is sure gorgeous though!
    My Waiting on Wednesday pick!

  13. I was so disappointing with Breath, yet somehow I still want to read this one and find out what happens next. Good pick!
