Terrible Thursday #2: Modelland

Terrible Thursday is a weekly meme hosted and created by bookittyblog. Here I will feature one book that had a Terrible day. Either because it had a bunch of bad reviews and I loved it or everybody else loved it and I did not.

Modelland (Modelland, #1)

Author: Tyra Banks
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers (September 13, 2011)

No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Crème isn’t expecting an invitation. Modelland—the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain—never dares to make an appearance in her dreams. 

But someone has plans for Tookie. Before she can blink her mismatched eyes, Tookie finds herself in the very place every girl in the world obsesses about. And three unlikely girls have joined her. 

Only seven extraordinary young women become Intoxibellas each year. Famous. Worshipped. Magical. What happens to those who don’t make it? Well, no one really speaks of that. Some things are better left unsaid.
Thrown into a world where she doesn’t seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers—if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp. Or could it? Dark rumors like silken threads swirl around the question of why Tookie and her new friends were selected . . . and the shadows around Modelland hide sinister secrets.

Are you ready? Modelland is waiting for you. . .

I haven't read Modelland but I've read the reviews and apparently the book is not that good. I spend almost 2 hours reading bad reviews of Modelland and to be honest, I enjoyed those 2 hours. I love when reviewers feel passionate about a book. When we feel this way we want to write a review with details (not spoilers) about what we loved or hated about the book. 

I don't think I'll be reading Modelland anytime soon. I read some parts of it while reading reviews and it was confusing. If any of you have read Modelland and loved or hated it feel free to leave a link to your review in the comment section. Oh, and make sure to listen to the creepy Modelland theme song.



  1. I definitely won't be reading this book. I've read some reviews too, and I guess the good thing about really bad books are the HILARIOUS reviews. ;)
