    1. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review I have been following this series from its first volume, which I really liked, so I ll admit to being slightly biased I like the main characters, the world of superheroes and villains developed here everybody knows they exist, with or less admiration and acceptance of what they do, and with a subverted Masquerade trope supers don t hide per se, but there s an unspoken rule about not getting personal , that is, n [...]

    2. The Don t Tell My Parents series is one I am deeply enamoured of It s on my list along with Ex Heroes, Wearing the Cape, and Confessions of a D List Supervillain for some of the best superhero fiction out there along with my Supervillainy Saga of course The books are neither dark or especially deep but they re fun The premise for the series as a whole is Penny Akk, daughter of superheroes Brainy Akk and the Audit, has discovered her superpowers at puberty age 13 This results in her attempting to [...]

    3. It was glorious Glorious I woke up at 1 am to start reading it my alarm went off at midnight but then I slapped it but my dreaming self was excited enough about the book to wake me up about 45 minutes later I then passed out again about 5 am or so, and managed to finish before I scraped myself out of bed and dragged myself to work which was horrible horrrrrrrible XD I feel like it was definitely a bridge book leading to new and exciting developments in the future but it was awesome enough readin [...]

    4. Finished the book last night It was like eating a sugary snack I loved it all throughout, and then afterwards, I felt vaguely dissatisfied The book seemed to lack focus A lot of new characters popping up and days and weeks just kind of passing by the latter actually kind of makes sense in retrospect since part of the plot of the book is how, as you grow up, outside responsibilities leave you less time to just hang around with your friends But the new characters take, for example, the illicit arc [...]

    5. Penny s career as a supervillain is in jeopardy with parental interference but there s a complex battle happening at school More and of Penny s contemporaries are deciding to be open with their super powers A club is formed and of course Penny is picked to lead itBut this points to a whole cultural shift for the city as people are now wearing their powers openly, the alien super powered beings are now able to be join the community and it comes with a whole lot of complex questions like who t [...]

    6. This one is like 2.5 stars, rather than 3.While better than the second book, it just wasn t quite as good as the first book Again, this book is a collection of things that happen, than an actual story But the boring and out of place space setting is gone, and all of the boring characters that went with it, so that s a plus Mostly, the problems I had with this book is that it s rather poorly written, which makes it very confusing in places The author introduces a very large cast of supporting c [...]

    7. Henchmen returns us to the world of superpowered Penny Akk It is significantly better than previous novel Please Don t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon , and thankfully returns us to the Los Angeles setting with her school and parents The storyline is a lot comprehensible than I remember Moon s being, but there also isn t the forward thrust that was present in Please Don t Tell My Parents I m a Supervillain it s a series of events in Penny s life that are enjoyable to read about in the moment [...]

    8. I really liked a lot of things, but weirdly, my favorite might be Marcia s character arc It was just such a nice surprise that she even got a character arc She spent two books as Classic Mean Girl Now with Bonus Combat Action and then she got all interesting That never happens I also adored every single thing about Bull and his family s story He is such a good dad I need to know so much about Irene Oh, oh, also Cassie s everything Awkward teenage bisexuals who just want to superhero battle their [...]

    9. This author pretty consistently doesn t explain story points and includes at least one monumentally stupid thing in his books In this book a classmate of the main character gains super strength through reading a couple of martial arts scrolls How she got the scrolls when every martial artist in the world was looking for them we are not told How she able to use both scrolls when any individual is only suppose to be able use one we are not told Why she then beat up her own father we are not told A [...]

    10. Kindle UnlimitedThe roomie says 4 or better, but these books are so not for the supposed young adult target age nor for older readers, at all, and this one is too much like 90210 teen angst crap as well as silly stupid Also so many typos and whatever that my reader was stuttering like Mel Tillis, and there was all sorts of real name, made up name, super name, and other confusions, that made it the worse of the 4, so far just one to go.I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence Please Do [...]

    11. The series continues to get worse, this book was so unfocused it was really hard to read.Penny was just not Penny, the romance was unnecessary and pathetic, I just could not get into her character.Ray is becoming a ridiculous character as the series progresses write him out, the series would have been better if he had not been involved at all.Clair I m just confused view spoiler The kiss at the end could lead to an interesting plot but I guess the author will ruin it like he has with the rest o [...]

    12. I very much enjoyed this book, it returned back to Earth and dealing with being a teenager having superpowers and not wanting your parents to know you are the head of a middle school supervillain team.It got back to the feel of the first book and we get to see Penny coping with her skills, her desire to be a superhero when her powers are villainous AND dealing with the fact that all the other super powered kids in her school are coming out into the open and wanting to be part of her afterschool [...]

    13. Not bad at all A lot of different characters villians heroes of the child variety were introduced on this one Almost to the point where I just stopped remember who is who With that number of folks just running about there was no way a deus ex machina moment wouldn t just pop out when the Inscrutable Machine got into a pickle I still overall enjoyed this story enough to continue with the series.

    14. These books are a delight Penny is a treat, and this book had a lot of fun involving her classmates coming into their own I can t wait to start the next one.

    15. I liked this one nearly as much as the first While in many ways having less plot than I blew up the Moon , I found it much engaging.

    16. Liked the return of story telling from where we were in book 2 This book is like a Slice of Life that happens to be in a world with super powers I like where this novel left the characters for the next in the series.

    17. I love this series If it deals with super powers I am there A great entry I would be happy as a pig in mud if this series went on forever.

    18. There s something so amazing about listening to a story that s not filled with the usual drama I find in my other reads, or the drama is a lite version of what I m used to Please Don t Tell My Parents I ve Got Henchmen was all of this so refreshing.The main character, Penny, was such a hoot Between her inner dialogue and antics I just loved her character Emily Woo Zeller does all the characters almost perfectly, except the males, but she especially does Penny s really well Having never read the [...]

    19. I would like to thank Curiosity Quills Press for an e ARC of this book to review Though I received this e book for free, that has no impact upon the honesty of my review Teaser What would middle school be like if half your classmates had super powers It s time for Penny Akk to find out Her latest failed attempt to become a superhero has inspired the rest of the kids in her school to reveal their own powers Now, all of her relationships are changing She has a not so secret admirer, who wants to b [...]

    20. Despite the super stuff, the life experiences are still present and the characters lovable.Really liking where it s going to

    21. DISCLAMER I received an electronic copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.There are some authors out there who can take a variety of disparate plotlines and assemble them together in a glorious tapestry of wonder and glory Richard Roberts is not one of them Roberts is a fine writer who desperately needs an even finer editor There were a ton of things going on in this story and a lot of plot threads were left unresolved at the end of this story The story wandered aim [...]

    22. Saaaaaaad I really, really wanted to like this I truly did That s why it s so sad, actually There are spoilers in this rant Let s start with the good if few parts I appreciated that Penny was trying to be a hero only the first time Also, the Ray Penny thing was cute the first time Claudia and Bullorable.Criticizing time Yay Note the sarcasm Okay, so literally EVERYONE changed I get that this might be a series that depends on turning perspectives on their head, but come on, Mr Roberts, don t ruin [...]

    23. This is the 3rd book in the series, and I started out here just cause the opportunity to read this one came up I surprisingly enjoyed this book I kept putting off reading this book because I kind of figured that I wouldn t really like it It s geared towards middle school age children, and I m 20 going on 21, so I figured this wouldn t really be the book for me I ve always been an advanced reader, so this book would have been something I would have read in 4th or 5th grade probably The character [...]

    24. I enjoyed reading it There s plenty of inventive super powers as well as some of the old standby s that are fun to imagine The book is essentially them going through most if not all of a school year There isn t too much action in this book, though there is some fighting there are only a handful Penny does a couple inventions Overall I think I like this book a little than the second but not as much as the third I was excited about the going in to space thing but that story just didn t feel like [...]

    25. This was a very entertaining read, I enjoyed how the author showed the super community, all the villains and heroes mixed up together from their young years till the adulthood It shows that each of them has a rightful place.Penny and her friends create a delightful bunch of kind who simply can t resist using their powers and who could blame them If I could, I would be doing the same thing D.In this story you ll find plenty of power shows, from the first opening fight at a school game, till the f [...]

    26. This book had no clear plot It jumped around, often making no sense because of this There were grammar and spelling errors It was in serious need of an editor I kept hoping it would get better The first book in the series was so great The second book was weird, but not horrible This one was just kind of terrible There were many characters that were sometimes referred to by their villain hero names and sometimes by their real names with no rhyme or reason to when making it hard to keep them strai [...]

    27. I think I would class the third book as slice of life just in a super powered world Yes there are some super powered conflicts but they don t really come from a main plot Not a bad book though view spoiler The kiss at the end surprised me It was clear to me that she didn t just want to speak with her to get a rematch but I didn t guess romantic interest Well I did briefly in chinatown, just not serioulsy Will anything come of that is the question Reviled wanting to leave makes that likely, but [...]

    28. Penny tries to come out as a hero While she wins the battle, her parents are not happy and forbid her from getting into any superhero battles Meanwhile, plenty of other kids in school are deciding to reveal they have powers The superpower club swells and the kids want to practice their powers With their new chaperone, the former supervillain, Bull, they form a superpowered tournament Claire and Ray still want to have the Inscrutable Machine, but Penny is afraid her mom will catch her using her p [...]

    29. I m very much not in the target group Still, I loved the first book in the series In hindsight probably due to the way the adult world and viewpoint clashed with how teenager heroes experienced things This was missing from the second book what with the space adventure and for the most part it was missing here I loved the parts where Penny interacted with her parents or with the larger society On the other hand, the parts the majority of the book where she needed to be interact with other teens l [...]
