Yeah, I’m going to say that and I’m not going to say sorry either, lol.

Si vas a leer Beauty Queens esperando un libro de supervivencia. This is an expression of sexuality and the novel’s all for that. This was a hilarious, darkly humorous, witty, and altogether fantastic book. For me, this says a lot about Libba Bray’s abilities as a writer.

You think Lord of uqeens Flies is insane?

Beauty Queens

Sep 15, Sh3lly grumpybookgrrrl. This is one of those books that stayed with me because it was just so entertaining. There were some things I had to swallow with a huge spoon of sugar, but I think Bray’s work had a lot of heart behind it. A few things that troubled me, though.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The girls have moments of authenticity, but beahty never transcend beyond caricatures, in my opinion. Find all of my reviews at: Bray makes a lot of really great points through a story that could easily be querns on the surface especially with a bikini model on the cover and a title like Beauty Queens – don’t judge a book by its cover! Shanti gives the signal. All the girls will come to see their true worth although some of them do hang on to their self-image as dumb blonde but pretty until forced out of it by necessity.

Maybe I’m a moron. That was freaking wueens. Just make sure one is much more intelligent then the othersa handful of henchmen, a handful of open-minded hot guys with British accents, one hot eco-“terrorist”, one crazy-go-nuts dictator, copious amounts of satire, and oz. The world is for us too!!

Girls are portrayed as chaste, innocent dolls who have no interest in sex until that libab soul mate type love interest shows up to awaken them like some sort of fairy tale.

My least favorite word is uqeens. The rest of the ladies? It’s a brilliant book. Alas, what I got was an increasingly irritating “Girl Power! There were a few others who had even less going for them. There are quite a bit of characters to keep up with, but surprisingly I got to know each of them.

This is about Miss New Hampshire. In this book, each girl has to deal with what society taught them: Like, ridiculously mean, especially when civilization isn’t present. It made me laugh for a good portion of the read.


Jul 20, Nat rated it really liked it Shelves: There were a couple of points where, if I had put the book down for a little while, I would come back to liibba and forget who Miss New Mexico or Ohio were. And she has a nice little panel assembled here: View all 16 comments.

bgay Open Preview See a Problem? But this guy, Todd Burpo reads his terrible book Heaven is for Real The least I can do is share it with the world. It will definitely not be a five-star book for everyone, but I had a beautiful day out in the hammock reading it, so it is giving a halo to the experience.

It wasn’t what I expected but that was definitely a good thing! Of course the biggest lesson of all, you do not mess with Texas, especially Miss Texas. They have to be non-threatening in order to be accepted.
