(I got a copy from the publisher, as part of the review tour, in exchange for an honest review.)I read the first installment of this series, Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm A Supervillain, last year, and thought it was a pretty good novel. So, of course, I couldn't pass up on the invitation to read the second one.I found it weaker, though I still liked it. It contains a lot of good ideas and concepts, and it's perfect if looking for a wild adventure in space, with alien technology and bio-weapo [...]
Short version: Not one of Roberts' better books, but a fun and imaginative read nevertheless.Long version: This book feels like the result of Roberts getting really excited about going ~*INTO SPACE*~ and then not being sure what to do once he got there--which is pretty much what happened to his protagonist. One of the things I loved most about the first book in this series was Penny's incredible agency. Even more than her superpower, it was her determination to make the most of whatever life thr [...]
Meh.It wasn't terrible, but it is a step down from the first book. The first book had an actual storyline. This book is more a collection of things that happen, and not so much a cohesive story. It sort of goes off the rails early on, and never really gets back on. It's definitely a little more silly than the first book, and not in the good kind of way. I also found the new characters to be rather annoying. It's generally harmless, but it seems to have fallen into the "it's for kids, who cares i [...]
This sequel to Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain is as fun and loaded with tropes as the first book, but the plot was a bit circuitous, and with our three heroes, Penny Akk (aka "Bad Penny"), Ray ("Re-viled") and Claire ("E-Claire") spending almost the entire book in space, it becomes a zany middle school space adventure more than the comic bookish supervillain story of the first book.Penny, Ray, and Claire are still hanging out together and indulging in occasional bits of junior h [...]
*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.The Inscrutable Machine has been living on a high, taking on and defeating adult superheroes, but it’s time to go back to school. How boring. Penelope, Ray and Claire have caught the itch and now they need more daring do to, well, do. When an opportunity drops into their laps they don’t need very much persuading to run off straight into another adventure. Only this time they aren’t fighting on Earth. They’re fight [...]
Penny and her friends are back in this second volume of the series. This time they are heading to the moons of Jupiter to do a little investigating for Spider. They find themselves in the middle of a giant conflict with multiple sides.This installment of the series has most of the good things that were in the first book. Great characters, plenty of action and humor,and mad science galore are all there. But there are a couple of small problems. The first is that there are a lot of characters and [...]
felt like the author started with a desired title and worked backwards to a story that got there. at most one of the new characters introduced is given a chance to become compelling (the rest are barely on the screen, can only be heard indirectly, cardboardy, or (view spoiler)[mind controlled most of the time (hide spoiler)]). much of the cleverness of kids keeping up with adults from the first book is just gone. bleh. having the POV character black out on a regular basis for her mad science has [...]
A nice book. Full review over here: rickusbookshelf.wordpress
Really liked the first book. This one read a little rushed, it was like coming in the middle of a movie and not knowing some of the plot.Not a bad book.
This is a really enjoyable book with some REALLY STOOOPID story choices. Primarily the main character, Penny, is an evil genius super villain, except she's not really totally completely evil. Penny, 14, ends up in conflict with a 12 year genius mechanic and IN THE MIDDLE OF A BATTLE TO SAVE ALL HUMANITY FROM EVIL ALIENS, Penny is immediately behind the 12 year-old's armor suit and decides she (Penny) CAN'T TEMPORARILY DISABLE THAT ARMOR BECAUSE OF HOW IT WILL UPSET THE 12 YEAR-OLD EVEN THOUGH TH [...]
The first book in the series is absolutely addicting, funny, entertaining, and enjoyable. This book ticks all of the same boxes, but does so to a lesser extent.The book starts off as a continuation of the first one, but then things take a turn: our heroes go somewhere they never were before (hint in the title (which is slightly incorrect, btw)). From there, the story switches to what seem like multiple short arcs, which build up on each other, and even though they are entertaining, are not as go [...]
Kindle UnlimitedMy roommate who reads comics and all thinks this set is 4 or even better, no idea why, bad role model to say the least for the young adults presumably written for, yet situations and attitudes are so not right for that age group or older.

I loved the first Don’t Tell My Parents book, but this one just wasn’t very good. It often droned on and on needlessly. Sometimes the descriptions of the Puppeteers and Meat Puppets were rather graphic and disgusting (they gave my ten-year-old nightmares). I mostly found myself bored while reading Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon and hoping the end would hurry up. It was just such a disappointment after the first book. I don’t recommend reading it.
Enjoyable read :)This was an enjoyable read, however much some of the characters frustrated me. Frustration was not due to bad character design or anything, it's just some of the characters are plain stupid in the head. It fits though. This story continues the series quite well and I recommend it if you enjoyed the first book. Read it!
Finished 2/23/18. This was an adorable continuation of penny, her gang and her antics. Loved some parts of it, especially when I couldn’t predict how it was going to be. Can’t wait for the next one. Still trying to figure out Vera and what mourning dove said.
Not a bad book. When it got really techy and sounding like instructions I have a sigh and powered through it but overall the story was pretty good. Didn't kind the absolute ridiculousness of it. It was actually kind of cute at times. I'd still continue the series.
The first part of the book was great, chinatown, etc. When they jump out to the moon and suddenly Penny doesn't have to worry about staying hidden, it loses some of the thrill.
A lot of fun. I don't like some elements, and it was longer than it really needed to be. The characters are the real draw. I did the audio book version, which was excellent.
Meh. This one just didn't work for me. Too much world building; too few likable characters.
This is a great series. I am very amused by Penny, and the trouble she gets into and out of. I didn't fully enjoy Remmy's breakdown, but it made some sense.
While I enjoyed this installment, it felt a bit flat and out of place. But that may be because I'm 40+ years old reading/listening to a book for kids.But that being said, the story, while feeling a bit contrived, moved a a good pace, had great dialogue and inner monologues and I found myself laughing in places.It was not so out of place that I will not continue with the series to see how Penny and her friends continue on the road to Superheroism or Super Villainism.
So. I read the book. And I gotta say i'm not impressed. Which disappoints me because I totally enjoyed the first one. This book though yeah here's hoping the next one is better. In the beginning I was enjoying the book, we were back to our main characters Penny, Ray and Claire and they're settling into their roles as villains. (view spoiler)[Although i wasn't feeling Claire's costume change. I mean keep the teddy bear theme. Honestly she could have a teddy bear hoodie or something if she didn't [...]
Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain was a great YA superhero novel. Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but quite entertaining. The protagonists were adorable and included a character whose superpower was, literally, incredible cuteness. It was funny, entertaining, and made me happy to have read it. The sequel? Mostly, the same. Accent on mostly. Please Don't Tell My Parents I Blew Up The Moon isn't as good as the original. It's got a lot of science-fiction world-building a [...]
I would like to thank Curiosity Quills Press for a copy of this e-book to review. Though I received this e-book for free, that has no impact upon the honesty of my review. Teaser: "Supervillains do not merely play hooky. True, coming back to school after a month spent fighting - and defeating - adult superheroes is a bit of a comedown for the Inscrutable Machine. When offered a chance to skip school in the most dramatic way possible, Penelope Akk can't resist. With the help of a giant spider an [...]
Penny aka Bad Penny part of the Inscrutable Machine is getting a bit bored with school after helping save the world in the last book.Spider needs Penny and her friends help and before Penny knows it her mad scientist skills has built a spaceship and they are on their way to Jupiter where they land on one of its moons. They find out that there is a colony of people there and in trying to be a hero she still winds up a bit of a villain when her mad scientist skills create something that doesn’t [...]

When I requested to listen to Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon I was hoping for and envisioned a story that would be funny and light and it makes me so glad to say that’s exactly what I got. What made Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon even more of a treat was the excellence and uniqueness of the word that Richard Roberts built within this series.Half of my delight of this audiobook definitely goes to the author, duh, but the other half most definitely needs to [...]
Where do I start with Please Don't Tell My Parents I Blew Up The Moon? There is definitely a lot going on with this story.

And that doesn't even begin to cover everything. From the minute you pick up Please Don't Tell My Parents I Blew Up The Moon you are transported to another time.
