Waiting On Wednesday (39): Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
May 24, 2011; Scholastic Press

-I love how Libba can go from epic paranormal romance/historical fiction to contemporary fiction. Such a talented author!


From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.

Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count. (courtesy of Goodreads)

  6. Heh, this sounds like a fun novel to read! I instantly loved the cover, and the summary makes me want to read it right away. Beauty queens lost on an island with scary things chasing them = instant win. Excellent choice!

  9. I remember hearing about this one, but I'd totally forgotten about it! Thanks for the reminder! From someone else I'd probably pass this one over, but since it's Libba Bray it's sure to weird and wonderful.

    Happy reading!

  22. I'm so excited for this book! Lord of the Flies with beauty queens is the best idea for a book ever.

  23. Wow! Beauty Queens sounds really good! Very interesting with the commercial breaks. I wonder how they will be like when you read it. Probably not as fun as they are with the audio.
