Show and Prove, Bluescreen & Magonia | #stickynotereviews

Show and Prove by Sofia Quintero was a book that intrigued me on a whim. It was face out at Barnes & Noble and I was trying to decide between it and Noble Warrior by Alan Lawrence Sitomer for my impulse buy that day. Noble Warrior won out (I was thinking about my students). I definitely connected with Show and Prove in a way that I did not connect with Noble Warrior.


I LOVED Partials. It hit all of my science fiction, “what will happen with advances in technology?” kind of buttons. Bluescreen hit all those same buttons, but in a different way. It reminded me a little of Feed and Brain Jack, so if you’re one who enjoyed either of those novels, you’ll probably enjoy this one, too.


I think I found out about Magonia from a list of books releasing in 2015. I bought the Kindle copy when it was on sale for $3, but didn’t get around to reading it right away. A few weeks ago, I didn’t have a book with me, but I did have my Kindle, so I started reading. It was a little slow to start, but I’m interested to see where this goes. I love it when I don’t know which characters to trust and there’s no clear good guy/bad guy. Politics = messy.
