The Accidental Beauty Queen Reviews
A cute fluffy book great for fans of romantic comedies, Miss Congeniality, and plots revolving around twins switching places.
Charlotte's identical twin sister is competing in the Miss America Treasure pageant when she suffers an allergic reaction. She convinces her shier, more homebody twin, Charlotte, to take her place in the preliminaries. There is a romance the buds between Charlotte and a guy she meets at the hotel that adds to the story, but ultimately this felt more of a quirky, adult com ...more
This book is exactly what I needed. Obviously like every actively literate person, I over-identified with Charlotte. I also didn't understand Ginny and her pageant obsession at all (although I started to get it when it became clear that it was her way to connect with their mom, who died when they were little).
I do wish we had gotten more of Charlotte and Ginny, but I love what we did get. And I also love Charlotte's thing with Gray, and the way she became more confident. This book is total girl ...more
The Accidental Beauty Queen is a light and quick read with cute and quirky characters that I could totally see playing out on a movie channel. You have the mousier twin who never quite measures up to her beautiful beauty pageant-loving sister, the trading of places when one is too (temporarily) disfigured to compete, and the hilarity that ensues from said switch during the competition. It’s a made-for-TV movie waiting to happen.
The identical twins are 29 years old, live completely different live ...more
What originally sparked my interest in this book was the cover. I just think the cover is so cute!
The Accidental Beauty Queen is a cute, light, and fluffy read. This isn't the most original story and was predictable but it still was an overall easy and fun read.
Let's meet the twins Ginny and Charlotte. These girls couldn't be more opposite.
Charlotte is a shy librarian and Ginny is outgoing competing in beauty pageants. Charlotte decides to take a vacation to see her sister compete in an upcomi ...more
This was as ridiculous as you would expect based on the premise, but I did enjoy the book nerd protagonist, and it was a nice change from the dark stuff I’ve been reading lately.
As mentioned above, I liked that the protagonist was a book nerd, though I felt like the author overdid the references to this a little. The love interest was likable enough, though I don’t feel like we really got to know him at all, and the relationship between the sister was a bit shallow.
Honestly, I felt like the bo ...more
Love love love!!! What a fabulous story.
I had so much fun reading this great story. It’s a bit of a rom-com but mainly it is a humorous look at the life of a beauty queen and her twin sister.
How can two sisters be complete opposite’s? As with any siblings we all have our own personalities. But these two twin sisters are close to being complete opposite’s, at least in the lifestyle portion. But what would you do for your twin?
This story was a riot. From the crazy Frenchie dog to ...more
If ever a book was begging to be made into a movie The Accidental Beauty Queen is it! It was an absolutely adorable read and would be more than ideal as a rom com movie, it was perfection in my eyes and I’m so glad I read it before making my best of the year lists because this will definitely be on it!
This uses quite a few classic and well loved tropes that we’ve all seen before, but somehow Wilson manages to breathe fresh life into the story in such a charming way. Identical twins switch places ...more
Once again, I wanted something light, romantic and hopefully funny. Did this novel succeed at fulfilling my needs?
Why yes. Yes, it did.
I was actually pretty blown away by Teri Wilson's writing! The story is told by Charlotte, the nerdy twin, who takes her sister's place in a beauty pageant after an unfortunate mishap. This actually makes for a very interesting point of view since we get the perspective of a person used to knowing about pageants, but not being an actual part of it until now. Sur ...more
