So when I got done reading Becca Fitzpatrick’s "Hush, Hush" I was left with one overriding question: Why in the heck is this thing called "Hush, Hush?" Nobody was quiet in this thing or ever shushed for that matter. I just really think this is a misnomer. To the book’s credit, however, the cover is fascinating, and any questions I was left with from the title were answered by the stunning graphics.

This book kept me hooked. You just know all along that something spiritual is about to happen eventually, and with that knowledge you just can’t put the book down. When the spiritual-ness does reveal itself, I was finally satisfied. The book definitely does deliver, but it just teaches the reader a lesson in patience. I need to learn to slow my roll every now and then and just have faith that the storyline will deliver, as it absolutely does in "Hush, Hush." Now I’m heading for the sequel.
Good Points
Great supernatural love story.
Suspenseful riding that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Tiny, tiny teasers that let you know something big is bound to happen.

The reason why I picked up Hush,Hush is because of the cover. I mean come on people it's amazing. But I ended up absoloutley loving this book. Why did I love this book so much you may ask? Well I guess we should start with the characters. Nora was a really good character, she made some good choices, she made some wrong choices, and she was awesome. Patch, oh how I love Patch, he was the best bad boy ever and he was a total hottie. Now I guess we should go with the plot. The plot was totally different then the whole vampire and werewolve thing and I loved it. Now, I absoloutley loved the suspense that Becca Fitzpatrick kept us in through the whole book. She kept me guessing throughout the the whole thing, and if you could see what was coming then you are a much better guesser then I am because I had no idea. I can now safely say the I am now a die hard Hush, Hush fan. I am no longer team Edward I am team Patch. I don't day dream about a dreamy vampire, I day dream about a total hottie bad boy fallen angle coming to rescue me. This book was a gream first novel for Becca Fitzpatrick and the next book in the series can not come fast enough.

I absolutely LOVED this book. Usually I stick to my vampires, but I've recently been asked to make a purse for a contest to go with the new graphic novel coming out, and so I decided to read the books and see what they were about.
I couldn't put it down! I downloaded it on my kindle that morning, and by the time I went to bed it was finished! I went immediately the next morning and bought the next book in the series!!

The characters are wonderful, Patch =

Being a very critical person by nature I tend to pick books apart while
reading. Throughout this whole book I was trying to figure out the
ending (which is unlike me, I usually pick apart characters and
grammar). I was dying to know what happened next so incredibly
badly that I was trying to guess it. I devoured this book in something
like 9 hours. Fallen angels, Bad boy extraordinaire, forbidden love,
and very real characters all made this book get well over five stars.
But to add to it, the plot twists were amazing and the writing
flawless. Even with the fact that I read an ARC and therefore there
were grammatical flaws here and there... there were less errors than in
the standard published novel. Which scores major props in my book. I'm
going to be buying this when it hits shelves October 13th so I can read
it again later. Yes, it was that good that I already want to reread it.
Can't wait for the sequel.

You know when you are attracted to a book and can't figure out why? Maybe it was the stunning cover, or the mysterious title, or even the gripping description but the fact of the matter is I was drawn to this book. In a way similar to how Nora is drawn to Patch. I bought it on the fly and don't , nay, can't regret it! Something I look for in books is how clean they are and this book was surprisingly clean I can't recall any cuss words and the most drastic love scene was a kiss. When I wasn't reading this book I couldn't help thinking about it, so like when my parents tore me away from it to eat dinner I was thinking what is Nora going to do next?  It was a book that was hard to put down so at 2:30 in the morning I was rationalizing with myself  whether to put down the book, only to  put it down and then pick it back up at 2:32 (of course I would keep reading!!). A truely captivating book that will have you guessing who exactly is in Nora's head till the very end.

Hush, Hush
Becca Fitzpatrick
Release Date: October 13, 2009
Simon & Schuster
Pages: 400

Rating: 5 stars

Falling in love was never so easy . . .


or so deadly.


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.


With a title like Hush, Hush, the book is just begging for you to pick it up. Once I picked it up, there was no putting it down. Hush, Hush was thrilling and enticing. Patch and Nora's world is so dark and dangerous. It's a world where readers will gladly visit again. The book itself takes a bit to pick up pace, but starting with page 1, readers are captivated by the mysterious Patch, trying to figure everything out and where it's going.

Patch was a character that made readers fall for him; he is dark, mysterious, and totally sexy. All the while, he's also cocky, rude, and awfully selfish, but it works for him and makes him that much more alluring. Whenever Patch is involved, you get chills partly from the fear you feel you should have for him and partly from the attraction. Nora was cast as the opposite, the straight A, good girl. She's a determined character, who falls under Patch's spell. The other characters don't stand out as much as the well-written Patch and Nora, but they have their fortes.
The one character that didn't seem to fit much was the snotty cheerleader, Marcie Miller. To me, she didn't seem to have much of a point in the overall plot.

The romance Becca Fitzpatricks writes is bewitching. The romance between the two is so much that everytime Patch and Nora enter the stage, you can practically see the sparks flying. It builds as the story goes on, and the ending leaves readers begging for more of Patch and Nora's story.

Hush, Hush is definately the cover of the year. The cover is simply gorgeous, and a book I would probably buy regardless of the content inside. Pair that cover with the amazing story Becca Fitzpatrick has written, and you have yourself a book no one can resist.

The wait for Crescendo, Hush, Hush's sequel will be a long one indeed!

Nora Grey is just your average teenager. She writes movie reviews for her school paper and hasn't really ever considered any guys from her school attractive. That is, until she meets Patch when Coach, the Biology teacher, switches around the seating chart in her Biology class. They are assigned homework to find out as much about their new Biology partner as they can and turn it in the next day. Except Patch isn't exactly cooperative with giving out information about himself, but yet he knows stuff about her that even her closest friends don't. Is it intuition or something.. else?

Nora becomes increasingly uncomfortable in the presence of Patch as the days go on as his Biology partner. He seems to be everywhere she is. Is he stalking her, or is it just a coincidence? But why does part of her feel drawn to him? Why does he always seem to evade personal questions? How and why can he put thoughts into her head like he's talking to her, yet his lips never move? And why does the new boy put Nora on edge?

Nora is certain of one thing, both Patch and the new boy seem dangerous. For Patch, she can't quite put her finger on why. For the new boy, Elliot, it's because he was a suspect in a murder investigation at his old school. And unlucky for her, they both seem to want her.

This review has been hard to write, because it seems like my words can't do this book justice. This book was beyond amazing. I had it on hold at my local library and was excited to read it, having heard positive reviews on it. Boy were they right! The mystery, the romance, everything was just perfect. 

This was the kind of book that you just simply can't put down and after you've raced through all the pages, you want more. Lots, lots more. You know the kind of book I'm talking about. You read it all in one day or stay up super late reading it, wishing you didn't have to sleep. Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

The characterization was phenomenal. Fitzpatrick did so well with creating these three dimentional characters. She made them have emotions. She made you feel those emotions. She wrote their personalities brilliantly and left you feeling like you knew them.

I loved Nora, even though she's a wreck when anything bad happens. I kept expecting Patch to have to rush in and save her all the time, but it didn't happen. Most of the time she had to fend for herself, which was a fresh relief compared to all the paranormal romances out there. It's usually: girl is damsel in distress, girl gets kidnapped or trapped or something by the bad guy, in swoops the hero to save the girl every single time. Nope, not the case with this book.

Patch, oh Patchy Patch. He was delicious. Absolutely smoldering. He was the perfect bad boy and extremely cocky. He enjoyed putting Nora in an uncomfortable situation. Which he did a lot, I might add. He is super sexy and I practically had to fan myself after reading some chapters. 

Speaking of which, boy can Fitzpatrick write the romance! In general, she can write extremely well. She captured my attention right away and held it until the end of the book and after. She writes beautifully and effortlessly and leaves you satisfied, yet wanting more. There were so many twists and turns, it was like she was mocking you each time you thought you knew what was going to happen. 

The second book is definitely staying on my to-read list and has made my get-your-hands-on-a-copy-one-way-or-the-other-you-must-read-this-right-now list. 

I don't think I have to say this, but this has earned a 5 out of 5 stars from me.

I absolutly loved Hush, Hush. It is now my new favourite book, i loved Nora and I absolutly adored Patch. He is one of the best males I have ever read in a book series. I kinda thought it had some things that were simmilar with Fallen by Lauren Kate. That is most likley because I read it first.I really loved this book. Becca did an amazing job. Can`t wait to read the next book too.

Nora Grey is partnered up with the new guy for a school project. At first she thinks Patch is just your classic jerk, but the more time she spends with him she realizes he is something unworldly.

Hush, Hush was a wonderful debut by Becca Fitzpatrick. I enjoyed this book a lot. The story was a little slow, but picked up towards the middle of the book. The characters and the plot were awesome. I can't wait to read Crescendo!
