What's On The Bookshelf: Spaceships And Plagues... Say What...?

Every week I have a new list of books that I need to read, and this week I've only got two.

The first book on my list this week to read is called Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin.

"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."

I am almost finished with this book, I was so excited to read it cause this books seemed right down my alley. It contains a bunch of weirdness... like people bleeding from their eyes because of the plague to people getting poisoned. Its has that Steampunk vibe to it which I love. I love this books for its horrificness, but I'm still not positive if I like it more than that. After I finish this book I will do another post on telling you how I feel about this book and so on.

NOW! This next book I have heard crazy talk about and all of it is good.
After I read Masque of the Red Death I am switching lanes real fast to a Syfy type book called Across the Universe by Beth Revis.

This is book cover envy right here!
So generally I'm not a Syfy type of person alot of the time, but this book may have me change my mind. 
Here is the summary:
" Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed. She expects to wake up on a new planet, 300 years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, Amy's cryo chamber is unplugged, and she is nearly killed.
Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader, and Elder, his rebellious and brilliant teenage heir.
Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she? All she knows is that she must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again."

This just sounds cool to me...
I am a little behind on this series because there are three books already.
If you look on Beth Revis website for Across the Universe, SHE LITERALLY HAS PICTUREs OF THE SPACESHIP AND PLACES INSIDE OF IT! Like I said.... awesome.

Also, people have been asking me when I am going to do a vlog, and what is it going to be about. This week I'm going out to buy a new camera because my last one had a meltdown and broke, RIP little buddy. I was waiting to do a vlog until after I had gotten my camera because my laptop doesn't have the greatest camera and neither does any other technology I own.
What am I going to be vlogging first?
I am not even sure. On my vlog I'm doing everything from fashion and beauty to adventures and books. I feel for my first vlog though its either going to be a beauty or a book review. I am leaning more toward book review. If I do a book review it is going to go over these books I talked about today.

Sorry for such the long post!
