Summary (Goodreads):

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.

My Thoughts: I’ve not read the original written by Edgar Ellen Poe so I’m not sure if there’s any similarities between this book and the original. The factor that drew me to read this book was the title and the summary. It seems so interesting and sounds like my type of book. But I was wrong. This book didnt even catch my attention at all. I tried giving it chances, but no it did not improve. It was boring and I felt that there were unnecessary parts which could be removed. It seems like a small book but it took me like forever to read it. Yes I finished it pretty quickly cause I skipped lots of parts and when I finally gave up I jumped to the last chapter and it was a mild as the rest of the story. I found some parts rather repetitive. I totally have no idea what this book is about. Maybe this book is just not my cup of tea. I could not relate to Araby or the other characters. I felt that there was something missing in this book and I would not continue with this series since I had a bad experience with this one. I really don’t wish to give this book a one but there’s nothing redeeming about it or I just could not see it.

Rating: 1/5 stars
