I had an idea of where this book was headed early on but still reading it shocked me. It pissed me off but in a good way (it'll make sense once you read the book!). If you don't walk away feeling empowered, you might be broken.

Huge thanks to BookSparks for sending me a free copy of Screen Queens along with some bookish swag for having me as an event Ambassador tomorrow (June 12th) @7pm at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, Ma - I'm super excited to be a part of it and meet the author along with two fellow Bookstagrammers who I'm meeting and doing the event with!!

This book was a super fast read for me and took me about 2/3 days to finish.
I also read this book as a buddy read with the other BookSharks that will be joinin

God, this book made me SO ANGRY but in the best way. I'm not even in tech, but reading this book still felt cathartic. I wish I'd had the opportunity to read it as a teen, back before I could relate to so very much of it. Screen Queens touches on so many issues of feminism without getting didactic and above and beyond all that, it's just a blast to read. Loved it.

So good, so much girl power. I feel like it took me a little while to get into this for some reason, and warm up to everything/everyone. However, once it got rolling, I was hooked. It's the kind of book that makes you mad at how the world is but allows for the right celebration and hope for change at the end. Highly recommend, especially to girls who work in male-dominated fields.

ACTUAL: 4.25/5 stars

Wow, this one really surprised me. Sure, I expected some girl drama, some rivalry, and some romance, but Screen Queens went further to share the challenges of females in STEM industries. It's a topic that is not highlighted in novels very much, but totally should be. The underlying serious of certain parts were bold and written well.

The characters were unique, each with their own person

THIS BOOK. I loved this book so much. The plot, was honestly so interesting. I was super invested in how their app was doing. Was it going to work? Were they going to get it done in time? And the process that they went through of developing the app was really interesting. I adored the friendship between the three girls; especially the fact that they didn't start out friends. They are all very different people, but over time, as they met adversity together, and began to collaborate together, they ...more

Sassy and fun. I was lucky enough to read an early copy and this book made me cheer for sisterhood. The future is definitely female!

So I'm not sure what really made me decide to do the blog tour for this book. I think part of it was the cover, I do enjoy friend group books. I also think the title drew me in as well. Also the topic of girls in the tech industry is not something I really see in books so I wanted to dive more into that. I do have to say I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would.

So the story is about three girls, Lucy, Maddie, and Delia. They are the first ever all female team that could win this

4.5 stars. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for promoting and attending the book's launch event. It was a lot of fun hearing Lori Goldstein discuss her writing process, and of course I loved having my book signed! Screen Queens follows three high school girls who are accepted into an exclusive tech incubator competition in Silicon Valley. Lucy, Maddie, and Delia couldn't be more different, but when they end up being stuck together as roommates and teammates, they need to learn to work ...more

I always enjoy stories about girls in code, and Screen Queens revealed some of the challenges women face in the tech industry. It was hard to read at times—I wasn’t a huge fan of the characters in the beginning, though they did grow on me in the end—and the actual events and manipulation frustrated me. But, I think this book is important for people to read, to realize what women in tech put up with.

The Bold Type meets Tech, all for it! It took me a while to get into the book and characters but once I did, I couldn't stop reading. In the end made my heart happy and made me again see how important voices are- I am woman hear me roar!

Actual Rating: 4 stars

It’s a good book. It’s a necessary book. It just wasn’t my favorite book that I’ve read about women in the tech industry. (Every time I read any statistics about it I get sad and mad all over again, so this book definitely serves its purpose in that aspect.)

About the book: Lucy, Maddie, and Delia find themselves on the same team for an incubator competition where they have to build an app.

I received an advanced review copy from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: The cover is beautiful, and I like the title. I was intrigued by the premise.

Characters: The three protagonists are great, and all of them grew on me. Lucy is a leader who believes in working and playing hard. Maddie’s a designer who didn’t expect to ma

A timely, Silicon Valley-set YA novel for the #MeToo era. Also, young women in tech is something you don't see a lot of, especially in YA. We definitely need more of this.

This story touches on the harsh realities faced by women in STEM fields, particularly Silicon Valley. Rather than overwhelming you with this big topic, it simply follows the stories of three high-school girls. Coming from wildly different background and families from all across the country, they find themselves on the same team in a prestigious tech incubator, where they learn how to work with one another to make something amazing. Satisfying my inner tech nerd, feminist, and fan of a good story ...more
