hiding a dark secret - The Highlander's Princess Bride (The Improper Princesses #3) by Vanessa Kelly
"We all know romance novels are sweet and sexy. That’s why we love them, right? But some are also downright funny too.

Amy, Goodreads

Besides a strong storyline, the action was plentiful. There was no down time in the story. I could see this book being on both the small and big screen." - Cheryl, Goodreads

"The ending was exceptional – the reader is given just the right amount of perception to build a picture of the final battle, and it made use of heroism, loss, friendship, and objects within the story to make it a truly epic tale. I’d read more books like this, and would watch more films like this. The Silver Horn Echoes: A Song of Roland is an astonishing and proud achievement, and as a reader I feel I’ve reaped the rewards. " - Alex, Goodreads

What’s worse than Flying Mutant Zombie Rats? Slime Spewing Vampire Velociraptors (Moto Maddie BMX Portal #2) by Kat de Falla
"The gem in this tale, however, is the science. Adventure seeps from every page, but so do all sorts of science facts. [...] But the book never feels like a science lesson because it isn't. It's just drops a few facts along the way.Summed up, this is a fun read for especially boys and reluctant readers. Not only will they love the adventure but enjoy learning something too." - Tonja, Goodreads
