Book Spotlight and Giveaway! Breathe by Suzanne Cox

BB Book Tours

Welcome everyone, to yet another promo! As I've told you in the last post, I've just moved to Singapore on a scholarship and have been settling in, so I'm not posting anything much right now. But promise: I'll be back in December at full steam!

Anyway, today, I'm spotlighting Breathe, the first book in the Atlantic series by Suzanne Cox. This promo is hosted by The Bookish Brunette!

Genre: DystopianYoung Adult
Pages: 268
Publication Date: Oct 22th, 2012
Website: Suzanne Cox | Breathe on Goodreads

Synopsis via Goodreads:

17 year old science prodigy, Laney Brookes, is looking for two things: a cure for the flu virus that’s ravaging the world and the truth about what happened to her father. Using clues from her father’s secret journals, she and her two friends Kate and Carter follow what she thinks is the path to the answers.

It’s a path that lands them in the lost world of Atlantis, a world struggling to survive. Laney finds more than just answers in Atlantis. She finds love. To get her friends and herself home, Laney will have to travel into enemy territory, led by Andrew a young Atlantean determined to return his people to power. In the process she’ll even unravel the mystery of her missing father. But first, she’ll have to figure out who the real enemy is.

Firstly, can I just say that I absolutely love the cover for this book? The title and the synopsis really make me wonder how they connect - guess I'll have to read to find out!
You can get the book on Amazon | Amazon Kindle | Barnes and Noble

About Suzanne Cox:

I remember writing my first stories when I was about nine or ten years old. I've been writing ever since. In 2002 I decided to seriously try and get some of my work published. On February 14th of 2005 I sold my first book, A Different Kind of Man, to Harlequin Superromance. While trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, besides a writer, I went to college (a lot) and worked a variety of jobs. I have a bachelor of arts in English with a minor in secondary education, a bachelor of science in nursing, a master of science in career and technical education with an emphasis in adult education and most recently, a master of science in nursing as a family nurse practitioner. I was also a National Board Certified Teacher in career and technical education. Along the way I've worked as a high school English teacher and an elementary teacher. I've worked as a registered nurse on a cardiac unit, brain injury rehab unit, and several different medical-surgical units. I've also done stints as a home health nurse and a community health educator at a hospital, and many years as an allied health instructor at a high school career and technology center. Presently, I'm working full time as a family nurse practitioner at an inpatient psychiatric facility.

If I'm not writing I like to spend time reading. My husband and I share our home with our four legged children. Our boy and girl in puppy dog clothes, Toby and Sassy, who masquerade as Miniature Pinschers. We are also owned by three cats Chase, Jackson, and Spots.  We are all terrorized by Gray Kitty, a stray who decided to stay and take over.

  1. This is the first I've heard of this book, but it sounds really cool! Coincidentally, I just finished a book called Breathe - but it was a different one, it was by Sarah Crossan. That was really good too!
