This week I’m reading Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin. I requested Dance of the Red Death, book 2 of the series, and got accepted! I had always wanted to read this but hadn’t gotten around to it, so I immediately had to purchase Masque of the Red Death.

Masque of the Red DeathI’m at the 30% point and so far it’s very original. It took me  some time to get used to the setting and to grasp what has occurred in the world.

In the mirrored wall of the elevator I see, not some exotic creature transformed by makeup and sequins, but myself. I hate seeing myself.

Summary (via Goodreads):
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 around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?

Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery makeup . . . 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 is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone. does.

And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for–no matter what it costs her
