IMM (3): May 29, 2011

in my mailbox
In My Mailbox (IMM) is a weekly meme created by Kristi over at The Story Siren. IMM is a chance for a blogger to show which books/e-books have been recently acquired either as ARCs, purchased, or borrowed. Click here to find out more.
I only have one book to share this week. However, I am super excited about this one! Earlier in the week, my Amazon order came in:

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray has arrived. Yay!! I am a huge fan of Going Bovine. I love Bray's wit. When I saw she had a new book coming out, I immediately pre-ordered it!

Summary from the book jacket: "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."

Is this going to a girly version of Lord of the Flies? Possibly. However, I imagine Bray will add a little more humor into the plot. I cannot wait to read this! I think it will have to be the first book in my quarterly reading challenge for my Goodreads YA Book Club.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

Happy reading!

    I read Beauty Queens awhile back as part of a blog tour, I absolutely loved it. It does have a sort of Lord of the Flies feel, only much funnier. I need to pick up a finished copy of it for my shelf.

    By the way, your blog is so cute!

    My IMM is here:


  4. I've heard lots of good things about this book too. I haven't read any books by Libba yet. Hope you enjoy it.

  5. I LOVED Going Bovine!! I can't wait to read Beauty Queens, I hope you like it. : ) I've heard only good things.

  6. This sounds like it should be hilarious. I haven't actually heard of it before but I'll add it to my TBR.

  7. Great haul this week. I've been hearing a lot about " Beauty Queens by Libba Bray " and have decided to mark as novel as a To-Read.

    I'm a new follower and hope you could return the favour and the comment.
