Review Detail3.6 38
After hearing all the hype about Hush, Hush, I realized two things.
I'd cave and buy the book eventually.
I was terrified that it wouldn't live up to my expectations.
Upon reading it, I was surprised to find that Hush, Hush was
an intense, creative, and overall well-written book. It was definitely
a page-turner, proof being that I stayed up until 6AM on a school night
to finish it.
I was impressed that it was Becca Fitzpatrick's
debut novel. The writing style is wonderful, and her take on
"angelology" adds a fresh new perspective to the genre of YA
fantasy/paranormal. I definitely think that Becca has great potential
as an author and I'm excited to see what else she'll come up with in
While I enjoyed Hush, Hush,
there was something about it that I can't put my finger on that kept me
from giving it a 5. I think it might have been that I couldn't quite
understand why Patch was in
love with Nora. I felt like there wasn't a really good reason why Nora
somehow cracked his shell after so many years. Furthermore, the ending
was a bit predictable, but I must admit that it was a good way to wrap
Despite that little issue, I really enjoyed Hush, Hush and I'm anxiously awaiting the publication of its sequel, Crescendo. I'd recommend picking this one up on your next book store run!
