Beauty Queens
Beauty Queens | Libba Bray
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.

I needed something lighter than Know My Name to listen to today so I am #audiosouping to this one instead. (I blame @Cinfhen for me checking out the library audiobook 😉) It‘s been my commute companion the past few days so I am about 1/2-way through & it‘s a bit nutty but I‘m loving the narration. The author does the voices so well. Today‘s soup is Ellie Krieger‘s Brazilian-Style Seafood Stew. Finished soup pics coming later.

Cortg Ha! This was super fun on audio and nothing like I thought going into it! Enjoy the drama! 2w
Cinfhen The book was so over the top but the author‘s narration was hilarious 😂 soup looks super YUM 😋 2w

Here‘s my second-last post of 2019! What a great audiobook this was, I absolutely loved it. It was very well-written and quite hilarious! The author reads her own book in the audio version, and she does a brilliant job. I honestly don't think I would have enjoyed the book nearly as much if I'd read a physical copy. The story also has a strong message and aptly explores femininity and the expectations society places on girls. Well worth reading.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yes! Hilariously bonkers book 🤩 2w
PurpleyPumpkin @thegirlwiththelibrarybag 😂That‘s the perfect description!👍🏽 2w
Bookzombie I loved this audiobook too! 2w
WJCintron I LOVE Libba!!! I didn't know about that audiobook!!!

This starts with a plane full of teenage beauty queens stranded on a deserted island and gets wackier from there, and just when you think things couldn‘t get more ridiculous it really goes off the rails! But somehow the narration makes this story come together and really sing. I had so much fun listening to this! Don‘t cheat yourself- is you‘re going to pick this up, go for the audiobook version! #wintergames #jingleballers #tbrread

#BrainCandy #LoL Super silly and a bit too over the top BUT a fun light listen 🎧with near perfect narration and a great mood lifter. Thanks for the recommendation @Megabooks and I agree with @britt_brooke book could have been a bit shorter but still fun and entertaining 💄👙👑And bonus points for #TropicalSetting #DearDecember @Eggs #TeamTexas Love the footnotes 😂😂😂

Megabooks I totally agree it could‘ve been about 2 hours shorter, but man can Libba narrate a book!! It‘s great as an audiobook but the audio part is definitely stronger than the book part. 👍🏻👍🏻 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A satirical cross-section of Lord of the Flies, Miss Congeniality, and Survivor. It got a little too wacky at times, and definitely could‘ve been shorter, but overall it‘s clever and fun. Libba Bray‘s brilliant audio narration brings these purposefully stereotypical characters to life. Something light and funny was just what I needed during this insanely busy time of the year.

Started this yesterday & paused it in the middle of chapter 1 because I was having trouble concentrating on the story. For the first time in my life I‘m reading about a main character who shares my name & at 36 I‘m finding it a somewhat surreal experience.

I also saw a tv show character with my name for the first time last year. There is a LOT that needs to change in our world. But I do appreciate little reminders that a few things already are.

TheAromaofBooks I'm always a little weirded out when a story is about someone with my name (even though Sarah isn't terribly uncommon), and it's almost weirder when it's about someone with my husband's name! 1mo

I was long overdue for a book like this! It wasn't just chock full of sarcasm, satire and snarky humor (although there was plenty, which is why I chose it) - it also touched on a deeper level with lessons I wish all people could learn. This should be required reading, especially for teenage girls. Best message of any YA book I've read this year.

2) Bare feet usually. Unless it's in the middle of winter.
3) I have no idea. We've been to a lot of the mountains in Colorado?
4) Water chestnuts 🥵 the texture and no taste is gross.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars. While I wasn't very invested in the story, I was glad the the ending wrapped up things nicely. The best part of this was the author's narration of the story. I would listen to more of Libba Bray's work just for her wonderful impressions!

Over the top Miss Congeniality meets Mean Girls with a tongue-in-cheek social commentary on the portrayal of women & minorities in the media & the influence the media has over the public. It's completely ridiculous but entertaining and while geared toward YA, it's good for anyone who enjoys outrageous satire and needs a light read.

Finally finished this book after reading it bit by bit for like a year and change. It's a an okay story. It very teen-oriented I feel, so if you're into teen-style language and plot interests, then this is the book for you. I will say the humor is kind of on point, but the teen romance parts and kind of teen drama tied into the "Lord of the Flies" allusions makes it feel like it is for a younger audience than my self. Good easy read.

Day 10 - Books I wish were a series

Y‘all, I read A LOT of series/connected books. According to my snazzy spreadsheet in 2018 80% of the books I‘ve read so far this year have been part of a series. 😯

Here are a few that I loved that I would love to read more of. Two contemporaries and one thrill ride of crazy by Libba Bray.

I really enjoyed the parts of this book that focused on the girls. I felt the “ads” and other bits didn‘t add much to the story, which is over the top on purpose. This is a satire, poking fun at how society views women, while also demonstrating that it‘s a serious problem. The book almost feels outdated in the era of #metoo, no more swimsuit competitions for Miss America, and the larger size inclusion in ad and fashion campaigns. Change is good!

Dogearedcopy The audiobook is narrated by the author and is an absolute Must Listen! Libba Bray narrates and it‘s an absolute scream! It‘s one of the few audiobooks that I have listened to twice inside of ten days 😄 2y
LibrarianRyan I loved this book. To me it almost felt like a reality TV edition of the Lord of the Flies. 2y

“Why do girls always feel like they have to apologize for giving an opinion or taking up space in the world ?” Do you ever hear or read something and feel personally attacked? Well, that‘s how I felt when I heard this quote. I am notorious for saying “sorry” for like everything. Also, this book is hilarious and I highly recommend the audiobook for this.

Funny and smart story about a group of teen beauty queens whose plane crashes on a desert island. The girls learn some good lessons about self-reliance and resilience, and also manage to avert a war in a banana republic. It reminded me of Christopher Moore‘s writing, but without the lewdness, which is the thing that always bothers me about Christopher Moore‘s books. I loved this book, and would love to see a well-done movie of it.

I had a lovely, lazy, low-key Mother‘s Day, which was just what I wanted. And I started this audiobook, which is already funny and highly enjoyable. The narration is adding a lot to the story, which is pretty interesting on its own. I can‘t wait to see what‘s going to happen next. Teen beauty queens stranded by a plane crash on a desert island? What could go wrong? 😉

Random: I‘m not very active on Instagram (more of a lurker), but wanted to suggest you follow Libby Bray if you use it. She makes me laugh often, much like the tagged book did. Today she posted a little song about how she feels about winter and I think many of you will enjoy it and agree. I did and it was almost 80 degrees in Texas today.
