Welcome to the 10th Annual Snow Queen competition!
I can't believe I got roped into this.
Snow Princesses must attend all pageant rehearsals, with appropriate outfits.
Well, no matter what it takes, I'm going to wipe that smirk off Layla Chamberlain's face.
Our rehearsal space can be booked to practice your talent.
Um, does "looking dumb in a dress" count as a talent?
See Grayson Chamberlain, the assistant director, with any questions.
If you insist! First question: How can someone so sweet (and hot!) be a Chamberlain?
Good luck! One of you will soon be our new Snow Queen!
Unless Grayson comes with the tiara . . .
When I first heard about Snow Queen by Emma Harrison, I knew I would enjoy it since I love anything about competitions and revenge. This book is so adorable as it recounts a winter beauty pageant, and the main character is quirky and caring. It is pretty clichéd, but that’s part of its charm.
This book tells the story of a Aubrey, who gets roped into competing alongside her friend in a winter pageant. However, once she joins, another competitor is determined to sabotage her, so Aubrey makes it her goal to beat her in the competition as revenge. I enjoyed reading about the competition, as this is something I’ve never really read before. What is interesting is the fact that it is not a traditional beauty pageant, and it features events such as snowsuit contests and hockey. I found the book to be unique, and it is the perfect light and fluffy wintry read.
Aubrey is an enjoyable main character, and it was entertaining to read about her passion to get revenge on Layla. She is supportive and a good friend, and I loved how she actually puts effort into the pageant even though it’s not really her thing. Of course, Aubrey is a bit dramatic at times, but that’s what makes her so interesting to read.
Snow Queen is a cute and wintry read about a beauty pageant and revenge. I enjoyed the unique concept and the amusing main character. I would recommend this one to those looking for a quick read to get them ready for the holiday season.
