Castles, suitors, dragons, princesses, moats and crocodiles, all wrapped in elegant and orginal prose! This is a 'can't stop reading' movella.

A Robin Hood inspired movella that will keep you on the edge of your seat...

One of our former competition winners, Blood Will Have Blood, is most definitely a recommended read... especially if revenge, Vikings and massacres are your thing.
Welp, this one is a real tear-jerker. The Bridge of Aspiration is an epic saga detailing the life and times (and also particularly the plights) of depressed orphan Erin Weir who finds freedom, expression and a release in dancing. Be sure to check out @MereCat's other works which include the particularly beautiful and interestingly-written "My Suckish Poetry."
There is a lot of Justin Bieber fanfic on Movellas so it can be difficult to know where to start! Platinum Heart is well-written and has an interesting plot twist. Perfect for those long hot summer days!
This story, though dark, suspenseful, and gripping at times, is also sweet and lighthearted in places. Though a combination of two possibly conflicting genres - romance and supernatural, this author manages to write both a terrifying, compelling story, and a terrifically addictive read.
The intriguing plot line of this movella is what compelled us to include it on our list of 'summer reads'. Be warned, there is lots of blood!
A captivating tale of one girl's struggle for freedom...This one is for those of you who want a super long and interesting sci-fi read!

Silence, one of our favourite Hunger Games fanfics, is set during the 31st Hunger Games and is action packed, stylistically brilliant and a real tear-jerker. May the reading be ever in your favour... (sorry, we just can't help it!)
