Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
Pages: 320
Expected publication: April 24th 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Everything is in ruins.

A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.

So what does Araby Worth have to live for?

Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.

But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.

And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.
I don't think there are words in any language on this earth that can accurately sum up just HOW MUCH I WANT TO READ THIS BOOK. To start with, I'm completely and utterly obsessed with The Masque of Red Death story, to the point that I do think my parents should be concerned, lol. So, to know that there's a YA novel out there about it is just too much for my poor heart to bear! I'm so, so, so very excited to read this!

  3. This was my pick last week. It just sounds so good, and I loved Poe's short story when I was in high school (and university when I studied it again). And the cover is gorgeous. :)
