"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, come the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.  
Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.

I think this book sounds awesome!  Libba Bray is a hilarious writer.  If you've read Going Bovine, you know that.  Beauty Queens looks like it's going to have the mix of supernatural and reality just as Going Bovine.  I also zeroed in on the "Lost"-like island immediately.  I love "Lost", so extra points for that.  All in all this sounds like a funny and dangerous adventure filled with the most unlikely participants: beauty queens!
