Waiting on Wednesday. (#2)

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

Beauty Queens

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: May 24th 2011 by Scholastic Press

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.


Ha! This cover is great! Definitely an attention grabber. And then the synopsis is the icing on the "I really want this book" cake. I love Libba Bray. She is an awesome writer. The Gemma Doyle trilogy are some of my favorite books, so I have high expectations for this one. And I've been reading a lot of depressing books lately so I'm starting to look for some different stuff and "Beauty Queens" looks like it will be a super fun read.

What book are you waiting on this week?


  1. I haven't heard of this one but is sounds so good! I'm gonna have to check it out when it's published for sure.

  2. I've been not-so-patiently waiting for this one! I can't wait. Libba Bray = AWESOME!

  3. Ha ha! Great! Kinda sounds like Lord of the Flies ;-)

  4. This cover cracks me up everytime I see it, hope you enjoy it when you get it.

    My WOW

  5. I love the Gemma Doyle trilogy, and I didn't realize she had something new coming out! :) Great pick! And the cover = awesome!
