Hello and WELCOME to the fourth TBR Pile Monthly Read-a-Long with Rachelia from Bookish Comforts and Yours, truly :)
In January Rachelia (Bookish Comforts) & I kicked off our monthly read-a-longs, hoping that by reading books together as a community we can tackle our TBR piles this year! This month we are switching things up yet again and reading a dark, steam punk book, MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH by Bethany Griffin. Did you know this book was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe?! Read on to find out what it is about, and how to join us in this read-a-long!
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.
And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for--no matter what it costs her..
Does that sound good to you? Then join us! You can still join if you’ve already read the book and are looking to do a re-read! The read-a-long will work as usual, with a series of questions posted (see schedule below) each week for you to respond to in the comments, so we can discuss the book as a community!
And guess what?! The amazing Bethany Griffin offered to give away gorgeous Masque Of The Red Death bookmarks for everyone who participates in our read-a-long! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?! Make sure to sign up now!!
We encourage you to take pictures with the book, write about the read-a-long on your blog, invite your friends, family members and co-workers (cause WHY THE HELL NOT?! these books are EPIC!) and tweet your thoughts, favourite quotes and anything that'll pop into your head while reading using #TBRRaL hashtag
(are you excited?! I know I am!!! I've heard amazing things about this book! And I'll finally get a chance to read it, yay! :)
