Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Beauty Queens

stef1213, January 1, 2013

This was, by far, my favorite book of 2012! Libba Bray created a fantastically satirical, fun, and feminist novel in Beauty Queens. The novel takes place on an allegedly deserted island after a plane full of teenage beauty queen contestants crashes there. Left to their own devices for their survival, we see the competitors from various viewpoints and just how carefully they construct their personas to reflect - or change - their inner realities. This is a spectacularly enjoyable feminist and anti-consumerist coming-of-age story full of empowerment for young women - something you don't see often, especially this well done.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Time Traveler's Wife

stef1213, January 1, 2010

This is such a fantastic book! The Time Traveler's Wife is an utterly compelling and fast-moving novel that sucks the reader in from the start. I stumbled upon this the summer it came out in paperback while traveling in 2005 and it has remained at the top of my list of great books since then. Niffenegger has woven romance and science-fiction without being too sappy or too fantastical - making a believable, heart-wrenching, lovely text.
