En smakebit på søndag #31: Beauty Queens

En smakebit på søndag er et konsept jeg har lånt av Mari på Flukten fra virkeligheten. Alt du trenger å gjøre er å slå opp i boka du leser nå og velge ut noen setninger du synes passer – uten at de avslører for mye av handlingen. Vanligvis samles linker til alle innleggene hos Flukten fra virkeligheten, men akkurat nå tar Mari bloggpause i anledning jula. Jeg legger ut en smakebit allikevel!

Nå har jeg akkurat begynt på Beauty Queens av Libba Bray: 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. What’s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program – or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan – or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up? Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tourguide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensetional, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make you never see beauty the same way again.

Dagens smakebit er fra side 16:

Mary Lou squealed and the girls rushed to her side. The body of a flight attendant lay in the bushes about ten feet away, her arms reaching forward as if she had tried to escape by crawling into the jungle. Her dark blue uniform was only slightly singed.
«So sad,» said Mary Lou.
«Miss Teen Dreamers, we can’t leave this body here. It will attract predators,» Taylor said.
«You mean like those guys who NetChat you and pretend they’re a hot German pop star named Hans but who turn out to be some old fat guy in a house in Kansas?» Tiara shook her head. «My mom was so pissed.»

When I'm in a bit of a reading slump, I find it helps to read YA, a type of literature I otherwise don’t read that much anymore.  Currently reading The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon.

#bøker #books #litteratur #literature #ya #youngadult #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #summer #bookhaul #reading #currentlyreading #thesunisalsoastar #nicolayoon I’ve never actually read The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Now is a good a time as any. From what I understand, people either love or hate the protagonist. Have you read it? What do you think?

At the moment I'm slowly working my way through the massive brick that is "It". #book #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #summer #bookhaul #reading #currentlyreading #stephenking #it #pennywise #horror #skrekk The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is one  of my favourite novels, and it was about time I got my hands on a collection of her poetry.

I quite like it so far!

#bøker #books #litteratur #literature #ya #youngadult #everythingeverything #nicolayoon #newbook #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #summer #sommer I have had "The gigantic beard that was evil" by Stephen Collins in my shelves for quite some time, and finally decided to read it. It's a quirky story about a neat and tidy guy living in a neat and tidy place. Life is perfectly predictable until his beard starts growing. And growing. And growing... I quite liked it - not a new fave of mine, but an enjoyable read nonetheless.

Sorry I have sort of abandoned this account recently, I have been posting on @saga_in_oslo. If you like dogs, you might want to follow my quirky husky-staffy-mix. If not, you better just stay here. ❤
