Book Review: Hush, Hush by: Becca Fitzpatrick

Summary: For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

This book suffers from what I am now going to call "Fallen Syndrome", it means, in my eyes, the book had way to much mystery than was really necessary, and it slowed down the book. Patch is pretty cool, he has some dimension, even though he was plotting naughty things through out. Nora was a bit off with me, she seemed to be a goody two shoes, but when she hooked up with Patch she totally did a 360. I really think Patch is the best part about this book. I hope the next one is better, this one is just ok.

  1. I've since mixed reviews on Hush, Hush - folks either like Patch or they didn't. I have it on my shelves and I hope to read it myself soon. Nice review!

  2. I ended up with very mixed feelings over this one. I quite liked Patch but wasn't that fussed about Nora & I hated Vee!! There were quite a few things about the story that just didn't add up & I didn't really feel the connection between Patch & Nora until right near the end of the book. I'm hoping that Crescendo will be better as I think it had a lot of potential
