“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release (or releases) that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week:
Masque of the Red Death
By: Bethany Griffin
Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books
Release Date: April 24, 2012
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.
Why I’m Waiting: Gorgeous cover aside, this book sounds awesome. Devastating plague by day, crazy club parties by night… count me in! And don't forget those two mysterious guys. :P Can’t wait to read this one!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
