Waiting on Wednesday: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming books that you can't wait to read.

My anxiously awaited title this week is:

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Publication Date: May 24, 2011 by Scholastic
Pages: 400
Audience: YA

From Goodreads:
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.

This book sounds like it will be fiercely entertaining. Seems like everyone who's read an advanced copy has thoroughly enjoyed it.  Plus, John Green gives it high praise, and that says enough right there.  


  1. This definitely sounds interesting . . . has been on my watch list for a while now. I think it's the bit about evening gowns and a body count that, for some reason, catches my interest.

    Here's my WOW for this week.

  2. This is an awesome pick! I love how diverse Libba Bray can be with her writing. And the cover's pretty snazzy too ;)

    Here's my WoW.

  3. I love the cover for this book! It's awesome! Can't wait to read it. :) New follower!

    Here's my WOW - The Bookish Snob

  5. Stopping By to see what is your WoW pick :) I wasn't a fan of her Gemma Doyle series. Couldn't finish it. I think I'll pass on this one, or I'll have to give her another try.

    Please Stop by, I'm starting a new with a fresh look.  Let me know what you think
