Best I've Read 2011 Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray


I LOVE Libba Bray's writing. Going Bovine was one of my favorite reads last year, so it was no surprise to me that I loved Beauty Queens. Libba's writing and these girls are sure to keep you entertained.



The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner. 

What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up? 

Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tour guide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensational, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make you never see beauty the same way again.

  24. Beauty Queens is definitely my favorite book this year. I devoured it in about one sitting and wanted to start reading it again right away. With biting satire, humor, and fun characters, not to mention the outside the box approach to storytelling, this is one of my favorite books ever! Thank you so much for offering this giveaway. This is definitely a book to own!
