Sundays in Bed with… Beauty Queens

June 17, 2012 In Bed With... 21

Kate at Midnight Book Girl has started a new feature on Sunday mornings to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed Sunday morning before getting to the days activities.

Libba Bray Beauty QueensSo I was at Barnes & Noble exchanging a book and I was trying to decide what to get so I picked out 4 different books and decided to read the first couple pages of each to see which one appealed to me the most.  All it took was the first 6 sentences of Beauty Queens by Libba Bray  to suck me in.  I didn’t even bother to look at the other three books.

I’m about 100 pages in and absolutely loving it.  It’s funny and ridiculous.  I should finish this one today and then I’ll be moving on to Ten by Gretchen McNeil.

* I am so glad to be finally caught up and back on track.  I hate feeling behind on anything.
* Last night we had our book club meeting where we discussed Fifty Shades of Grey.  Yes, you read that right.  It was an interesting discussion…

I hope everyone has a great week!

    I read this I think last year and enjoyed it. This was my introduction to Libba Bray. I am looking forward to reading her other books now.

    You must tell us about your book club meet up and discussion of 50 Shades. I am guilty of reading it.

    My book club had a quite a fun night when we discussed 50 Shades. And I’m sure that if you me and kate ever got together we could have fun talking about that one as well!

    Glad you are all caught up and back on track. I have seen Beauty Queens around but haven’t read it myself so I’ll be excited to see if you think I should give it a shot.

      I’m not sure what it says about our book club, but it was one of our longer book discussions. There is a lot to talk about so even though it’s erotica it was a good pick.

      I think everyone should read Beauty Queens. :)

    I felt SO behind on blogging in the last two weeks. It was seat of the pants time!
    Today I got through most of my blog to-do list. I’m hoping to have a relaxing summer full of reading!!!!

    i did enjoy the Beauty Queens audio. Libba Bray reads it herself — she just won an award for the narration.

      I thought I had enough stuff scheduled and ready and then I got back and I realized that I should have actually planned more ahead than that. I will know for next time!

      I struggle with audio books sometimes, but that’s awesome that she did it herself. So far I am loving the book, it’s written very differently and I like it!

    I’ve ordered Beauty Queens and now I can’t wait to read it :)

    Seriously, you should try Neil Gaiman’s books. They are really good :)

    I’ve been wondering about this book. The cover always catches my eye at the bookstore. After reading this, I think I’ll go ahead and download it! I bet the book club discussion was quite interesting. Now that’s one book I haven’t even dared to read.

    I really want to read this one! I think it sounds so cool and clever! I haven’t read anything by Libba Bray yet but I do have A Great and Terrible Beauty sitting on my shelf. One of these days I’ll get to that one and to Beauty Queens!
