Waiting on Wednesday - 1/26

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week my Waiting on Wednesday book is Beauty Queens by Libba Bray.  I loved her Gemma Doyle trilogy and also enjoyed Going Bovine.  So I am really looking forward to Beauty Queens.  Love the cover :-)  It looks really funny!

Synopsis from
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.


  1. This does look intriguing...hope you enjoy it!
