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: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.
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?
