Waiting on Wednesday: Beauty Queens

March 23, 2011

Title: Beauty Queens
Author: Libba Bray
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 400
Pub Date: May 24, 2011

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.–Goodreads

Just . . . read the description. I know you skipped over it.



HOLY COW THIS SOUNDS GOOD!! And that cover?! I am SO IN.

Bonus for y’all: I may have done one or two pageants back in the day. Here is a photo. Yes, I am holding a trophy. (I won a trophy!) 

I was never normal. Even back in high school when I was still pretending to be. 

Aaaaanyway. So there’s my pick for this last Wednesday of my 23rd year. Treacherous islands and bitchy girls. Mwahahahaha.

    It sounded like the beginning of a horror movie, but that's where my mind automatically goes.
