Wishlist Wednesday #35

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray

The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.

What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tour guide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensational, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make you never see beauty the same way again.

I have seen this book around everywhere lately! Ever since reading the synopsis of it last week on Dani's Wishlist Wednesday post I have been eager, very very eager to buy it and read it. It is quite different to what I usually read but it sounds hilarious. I need this book in my life. I honestly think this book would be alot of fun to read and probably have me laughing all the way through. No doubt I'll own this book so because I just love that cover and it just sounds too good to give it a miss!
