    in the hands of a more skilled writer and under the guidance and care of a better editor, this could have been something like camille perri's the assistants, or the lady's guide to selling out. but this book definitely reads like it was someone's half-assed nanowrimo project and an...

    4.5/5 Stars Being a girl in a male-dominated field isn't easy. Screen Queens shows us just that, but also how girls can thrive, persevere, and kick ass in tech. This book is the perfect summer read: it's fun, quick, but also empowering. And it'll make you feel all the things. ...

    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 hop...

    3.5 stars. So just to clear up any confusion if you're the type of person who occasionally picks up a book without reading what it's about and simply assumes what it will be about based on the title, Lori Goldstein's new novel, Screen Queens , isn't about a bunch of actresses. (Han...

    I had so much fun reading this fiercely feminist novel about female friendships, family relationships, and the unique challenges faced by women in tech (as well as in business--and life!--generally). Maddie, Delia, and Lucy are thrown together as roommates and teammates for a prestigio...

    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 gett...

    4.5 stars 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. FRTC ...

    I enjoyed this book so much more than I expected to. There was so much girl power, STEM, and women in the workplace representation that there wasn't a way to not like this. The friendship that forms between the three protagonists is one that should be glorified and inspire it's rea...

    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 d...

    *I WAS PROVIDED AN E-ARC FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS TOUR. THIS DOESN'T AFFECT MY OPINION.* Screen Queens is an exciting novel about three strong, female leads that catch your attention the more you read. The beginning of this novel was a little rough. It was the classic introducti...

    Two and a half stars. I liked the book's cover right away. I kept closing the book to admire it when I was trying to decide whether I should keep reading it. Sometimes, the cartoon-style covers are simplistic and yet communicate a lot in the way of small details, as did this one. I mis...

    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 ...
