Review #4: Beauty Queens- Libba Bray



Title: Beauty Queens
Author: Libba Bray
Pages: 396
Rating 2/5 Stars 
Review: This book was not at all what I was expecting. I was thinking it would be beauty queens fighting to the death in order to survive after their plane crashes on a deserted island. Boy was I wrong.

I didn't really like this book but I kept reading to make sure that I wasn't missing anything. Nope, it never did get any better. I didn't find the book funny or witty. I hated the pointless commercial breaks and footnotes. I will give it to Libba that she can make a character stick in your mind. I enjoyed the stories behind each character, I just feel that the delivery of them could have been better.I really hope that the other books by Libba Bray are better then this one.

I have used this book in two categories for two different challenges. 1). Quarterly challenge for catergory #7 Book with a gay/ lesbian/ bisexual character. 2). September reading challenge for category #3 Book set in forest or jungle.
