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. -(summary from Goodreads.com)


I loved Bethany Griffin's Masque of the Red Death. I was fortunate enough to read it earlier this year and devoured it. It was an awesome mash-up of steampunk, apocalyptic/ dystopian, and romance. It was creepy and dark and thrilling and had a place called the Debauchery Club that was one of my favorite settings in a book in a long time. In fact, this entire book had some of the best settings I've read in a while. The world-building was insanely good and it was just entirely well-crafted. 

I'm a sucker for something excellent, and it's all right here. As I said in my review: "Contagions, steampunk, mean villains, debauchery...it just had plenty of things that make me want to read more. " I'm so excited for for the release of Masque of the Red Death today and I'm already impatient to read the next part of the story!

(You can read my review HERE.)


To celebrate the release of her book, Bethany  Griffin was kind enough to send me some swag to send to YOU! I have one bracelet and two bookmarks to share with two of you guys. 

The bracelet says:
"I am beautiful, fake, shallow, incognito..."

  1. They look great! Thank you for the giveaway,

  2. Oh, very cool! I've been dying to read this book. My library is ordering it just for me! Man, I love my library.

    I also love bookmarks. And bracelets.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I'm lucky enough to have a copy of this on my shelf, and I can't wait to read it! I was planning on reading it in May because that's when the original publishing date was, but then they moved up the release date and I got behind...grrr! Lol. Still, glad to hear you enjoyed it! I can't wait to give it a shot when I get more caught up!

  4. Thanks so much!

    they look sooo pretty :D

  7. Thank you so much for the opportunity! New follower :)

  8. I haven’t red the book yet but I think it’s quite nice to read since I am a book lover! Nice blog by the way.

  9. This is obviously the first book in a series, as the ending left many openings and tons of unanswered questions. I look forward to the next installment with the hope that the author can continue this unique tale in a way that distinguishes it in a crowded dystopian genre.
