Title: Masque of the Red Death

Author: Bethany Griffin

Genre: Dystopian Fantasy

Available at: AmazonBarnes and Noble

From Amazon:

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.

I’m loving this book! I didn’t read the short story by Poe so I didn’t know what to expect. I did end up reading a summary of the story on Wikipedia to give me some background. I also downloaded it so that I might read it after I finish the Griffin novel.

As far as the Griffin novel goes, I really am enjoying it. I heard about it from a Goodreads and book blogger friend, Blook Girl. It has elegance and a touch of Gothic to it that I’m truly loving. I only hope it doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. I’ll finish it in no time at all so I’ll find out soon enough.

I am *still* trying to get a book on cooking read. Not a cookbook of recipes, but a book on how to cook, a philosophy of food and cooking and how to do it cheaply, well, and efficiently. Which sounded good to me at first, but is really rather soporific and slow reading. I am longing to be done with it, but don’t want to just stop reading it because I’ve gotten this far and want to review it having spent that much time on it!
