I loved this book. I've been interested in programing for 35 years. I'm not much good at it but still find it fascinating. That's why I picked this book up, I'm surely not the targeted audience old white male, but I learned a lot about feminism, ambition, and the courage to put yourself out there...

See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! My copy was an ARC I got as a reviewer for YA Books Central.
If you can’t tell by the sad self-designed blog graphics, I kinda like Photoshop, digital design in general, and web design. I took web and digital design classes in high school, but the web desig...

I don't read many memoirs. To me, books are an escapism from reality, and memoirs and other non-fiction books are the complete opposite. Because of this, I became kind of reluctant after I requested this book and found out it was a memoir, but I still dove in with high hopes- hopes tha...

This was really interesting. I picked this up on a whim at the library and honestly I had no idea anything to do with the creators of tampon run or what it was in the first place. However i was really inspired by their story. ive always wanted to learn how to code and i am super excited to learn...

Excellent book about the technical world of gaming. I recommend this book if this is a subject you're interested in or you to be part of this industry. I appreciated how it's simple to read and doesn't bog you with techno babble.

I didn't like the writing too much, which is understandable, but the message was phenomenal. GIRLS CODING, and also a video game where you throw tampons at people.
I really appreciated how the authors went into how they tackled each project and each line of code. Sometimes it's really o...

I stumbled across this book when looking for any coding books on my library app – turns out there aren’t that many. But actually, I’m really glad I ran across it as I found it such a relateable story. Sophie and Andy were two teenage girls who found themselves at a coding camp together and throug...

So. I didn't mean to take a 12 month hiatus from Goodreads. I also didn't mean to gain about 12 pounds over Christmas break, but both already happened. So, here I go, picking up where I left off, on vegetables and on book reviews.
I figured I may as well start 2018 with a memoir, and Girl Code had...

There are a lot of "irons in the fire" in "Girl Code": Coding culture, the story of two young women, & the taboo of menstruation as a conversational topic. Though I think it could have been easy to get lost a bit in those themes, authors Gonzales & Houser (also the subjects of the book) d...

As someone who heard about Tampon Run way back when it first came out, and loved the concept of it (not to mention playing it), I was pretty interested in this book.
I don't usually read non-fiction, but I really enjoyed how Girl Code read with a dual POV. Both Sophie and Andie were relatable and...
