Beauty Queens : Libba Bray :

Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Jul 20, Nat rated it really liked it Shelves: I love how she identifies it and says that it is not how she wants to be.

She smiled and made herself seem as friendly and nonthreatening as possible. Then you should try to be somebody else. The surviving contestants will have fred, well, survive on a delightful tropical island using their own wits, ingenuity, and pageant-approved talents. I thought it was wonderful and all the time managed to stay on the right side of that fine line between feminism and misandry. They were so intricately woven in that you were really just unconsciously being taught so many important lessons and I loved that.

Even with the audiobook, I could distinguish between each of the characters voices since they were so unique.

I’ve read some reviews where it seems to be the opinion that girls in these circumstances would turn on each other in true high school bitchy fashion. Okay, so maybe that’s not going down on my good karma record.


And I was like “Beauty Queens” a book about teen beauty queens on a plain, that like OMG, crashes on a desert island and they have to survive and stuff, wouldn’t make me, like, have to think and stuff I kid you not.

I enjoyed Libba Bray’s writing.

We had an incredible wide cast of characters that I connected with one way or another. View all 19 comments.

Brah Renate I wholeheartedly agree. In every single possible way. I didn’t really like how the whole Confederation plot played out though I did really enjoy the execution of it with all the little footnote advertisements and the commercials woven in.

Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program — or wrestle snakes to the fgee Up until the very last page, I was waiting for Bray to reveal that the entire thing – the crash, the pirates, the comically-evil corporate villains – had all been staged from the beginning as the pilot for some awesome new reality TV show. Well, you think of a better explanation However, there is some sex, violence and drugs so I guess it would depend on the maturity of the queenx.
