Waiting On Wednesday: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: May 24, 2011
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 400

Summary: 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 emall. 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.

My Thoughts: Beauty Queens sounds awesome! Everything from the cover to the summary builds a world I'd love to read about. Especially the whole "Lost" island feel. Being a huge fan of that TV show, seeing it in a new, twisted way would simply be fun and exciting! Too bad it won't be out until May 2011. :(

What are your thoughts on Beauty Queens?

When I saw the cover I was like, "Oh no, Libba!" But then I read what the book is supposed to be about and is totally awesome! I had no idea of this book! And now I can't wait!
You totally made my day. :)

Oh yah, I forgot about this one! It sounds pretty hilarious and good... Lord of the Flies-esque, but likely a whole lot more interesting.

Miss Bookiverse said...

Oh my gosh. AWESOME! I hadn't even realized there was a cover released for this one. I've been dying to read more by Libba ever since I finished and loved the Gemma Doyle trilogy *__*

Erica said...

I am excited for this book as I can't wait to read more from Libba Bray. I wasn't a fan of her Going Bovine, but am in love with her Gemma Doyle Trilogy. Though, I absolutely detest that cover. I can't stand it lol.

I love Libba Bray! Definitely sounds like a good book. Although the cover annoys me. But will still read it!

I'm not wild about the cover but I love the idea and I remember reading Bray's blog while she was writing this and needing it. I've added it to my wishlist. Thanks for the heads up! I love Libba Bray!

great pick! can't wait to read this one, but I'm not exactly sure about the cover.

Mandy said...

I absolutely LOVED her Gemma Doyle Trilogy, well... the first two. I haven't read the last book yet for some reason. XD Have it, but haven't read it. But I know I'll probably love it too.

Beauty Queens sounds pretty good and I love the cover. Can't wait to read it and find out.
