On My Wishlist (11)

On My Wishlist
Every Saturday, the wonderful Book Chick City hosts this meme, where I get to put up pretty pictures of the books I want to get my hands on.  The last few times I’ve posted I’ve wished for historicals, fantasy, a futuristic, a collection of menages – so I thought I’d be predictable and wish for a humorous YA.

Beauty QueensBeauty Queens

By Libba Bray
Publication Date: May 24, 2011
Publisher: Scholastic
Genre: Young Adult

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.
