It was really good! Short but great. It takes place at the same time as the first book.

Trisha | 31440 comments yay! I can't wait! Ready for this one today??

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

:) Ready!


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I will catch up in a few days. Still waiting for my book but should get it any day now.


message 17: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments okay I'm 5 chapters in

man, these masks just get more and more confusing to me.

So, they partially cover your mouth and they definitely cover your eyes. They sound like they cover your nose too (the tubes and all)

so do you just never breathe through your mouth?
and the new detail, we can see eyebrows....so it doesn't go too above the eyes. lol I wish the author would release a cover or a photo of her idea for them, I just can't picture them for some reason....


anyway...good 5 chapters with lots of action and adveture

I wasn't sure (view spoiler)

I think the worst part is (view spoiler)


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments Yay!!! I JUST GOT IT!!

So excited! I can't wait to start.


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I am also very confused about the masks. We should message the author asking and see if she responds. Also we could put together a list of everything we know about them and see if we can draw what we think it might look like.

I can't really find any fan art. The Indonesian book cover shows a mask but it doesn't fit with what I am picturing in my head.

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

The part that confuses me the most about the masks is the mention of Araby eating in her mask in book one.

message 21: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yes, I remember being confused about the eating too!
She was okay to eat in it

but don't they have to move funny to kiss in it? Or did she have to move the mask slightly in order to eat.

Your cover above! Nice find, BTW, I hadn't seen that one!!
but THAT cover makes no sense. It covers the mouth but not the eyes?? I keep thinking the exact opposite type of mask.

this is another cover of the book. Is this closer to what you were thinking too?? Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #1) by Bethany Griffin

WOW!!! Do you think if we asked, she would respond and let us know what it looks like??

I've seen this fan art too but it STILL doesn't seem to help!

this one is great....close maybe? but this book mentions seeing eyebrows...and you can't in these masques :(

ugh...I'm open to sending a message. should we do that? I love your idea!!


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I pictured it a bit more like a gas mask because you breath into it and the mask on the one above wouldn't cover the mouth.

Yes, when eating she had to adjust her mask to the side so she could eat in it while still breathing through it.

We should do it. Are we just going to ask what it looks like or are we going to be more specific with our questions?

Trisha | 31440 comments I wonder if she has an image she based it on!

Have you read the poem by Edgar Allen Poe that this is based on? I wonder if that would give us more.

I'm off to see if I can find the story on ebook :D


message 24: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, I wonder if the copyright is up on this book
I found it both on a website and the audio version.

so I'm going to listen to it tomorrow while reading it (lol! why not!? the audio has sound effects and all!)

and I'll let you know if there's anything in there

for now, though, I'm taking this book to bed :)

goodnight!


message 25: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, it didn't shed any light on the masks even though it was spooky. I did find these covers in there tho.

Masque de La Mort Rouge by Edgar Allan Poe The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe

not that they help AT ALL
lol I plan to pick this one up and keep reading :)

Trisha | 31440 comments omg 10 chapters

yikes, this triangle is getting complex

When Will (view spoiler)

Elliott's (view spoiler)

and OMG (view spoiler)

and April (view spoiler)


message 27: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments wow, okay I'm done

and there is a clarification in the book

Araby has AT LEAST 3 masques
and she describes how they are different....so maybe that will be her answer??

anyhow, I'm done
and this one DID NOT go as I thought it would
wow it's good. I can't wait to see what you think!


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I am only on chapter 4. I haven't had much time for anything recently.

Glad you enjoyed it and that it wasn't entirely ruined for you!


message 29: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments I hope you like it

I didn't realize it was the last one!! I thought we had one more!!! :(


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments Yeah, strange in this day to see a series that is not a trilogy.


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I am just finished chapter 11.

I agree that (view spoiler)

I don't think April (view spoiler)

Overall I think I was enjoying book 1 more by the halfway point. Hopefully now that April and Kent are back in the story it will get more interesting.


message 32: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments oh man, sorry you aren't enjoying it too much
it's rough at first but I did like it :)


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I'm finished but its bedtime. I will post my thoughts tomorrow. I liked the ending.


message 34: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 4 stars
