Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray I honestly wish this book was drastically cut down. It started off fairly hilariously and brilliantly. A group of teenage beauty queens crash into a seemingly deserted island and chaos ensues. I read each page laughing my pants off and eagerly turned the page to see what crazy things would happen next. Unfortunately, the satire soon turned a bit too campy for me to really enjoy it, and became tedious and just too ridiculous.
