This book grabs you from the very start and pulls you into the world of angels!  Patch is nothing but mysterious and a little dangerous but there may be more to his facade than meets the eye.  Nora doesn't know if she should let this new guy into her world but she has to admit that strange things are happening all around her.  Things that could cost her life if she isn't careful.  Very careful!  Can Patch explain everything that is happening to her or better yet, will he?  You will not be able to put this book down.  I actually read it in just one sitting!  Fantastic and many kudos to Fitzpatrick for bringing this to life so vividly!

Hush, Hush was a super good book, it's one of those one's you never want to end. It will make you want to sit there forever and just read. It's a book that even the people who don't like reading a long book would enjoy. Don't judge it by it's cover, even though the cover may give those who aren't into fantsy the impression that it's boring, inside is one of the best stories you'll ever read!

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.

This book is obviously going to be compared to Twilight; the parallels are there. Sometimes, I think a certain books popularity can be a good thing there were numerous YA fantasy series after the success of Harry Potter and some of them were quite good.
Hush Hush is also quite good.  The author listened to the criticism of Twilight and has made some efforts to correct some of the glaring problems.  The bad boy in Hush Hush, Patch, seems to be really bad, maybe a stalker, maybe he attacked a girl with a flashlight. Patch could take a sparkly vampire with his eyes closed. But he is increasing attractive to Nora, and any female who has ever had a thing for bad boys can see why. Nora also makes efforts to avoid Patch, and there are real reasons why she doesnt tell anyone about Patch, even when everyone is warning her to stay away from him.
The pacing is well done, the book moves right along. Most of the characters are well depicted; I loved Noras quirky friend Vee. I think Nora could have been fleshed out a bit more, I didnt quite understand why someone as fun and funny as Vee would hang out with Nora.
I enjoyed this book enough to watch for other books by this author.

" 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," Summary Courtesy of Amazon

Wow,
this book was amazing. I enjoyed reading it so much. The characters
were great and the plot was ingenious. Becca Fitzpatrick kept me at the
edge of my seat until the last page, and even then I couldn't wait to
find out what was going to happen next.
Hush Hush definitely
left room for a sequel. When I first began reading I wasn't completely
sure what was going to happen, you never knew who to trust or what was
what- this was a mystery, romance, fantasy, and suspense novel all tied
into one. One of the best parts of the book was the fact that Patch and
Nora had great chemistry, they went together really well. Patch was the
perfect mysterious bad boy, who kept you wondering about his dark past.
There were also a lot of sub-plots that added to the novel. Everything
was tied up at the end, but I'm still anxious to read the sequel.

For
a debut novel, this book was fantastic, even for a seasoned writer this
was a great book! I loved the unique names of the characters as well-
Patch, Nora, Vee, Elliot, Kjirsten. One of the most amazing things
about this book was the fact that it was such a unique topic. Fallen
angels is something I've never read about, I'm now intrigued to learn
more about them. Also, the cover was great, too. I love it! There's so
many dimensions to it, and although the colors are dull they work. It's
a perfect cover, definitely one of my favorites of the books I've read
lately. All in all I'm so happy I got a copy of this one for review (
well two copies to be exact) and am planning on picking up a hardcover
copy when it's released in October.

(Please note:  I was fortunate enough to get an ARC copy of this book.  So although this review is up before the publicatio ndate, I did actually read it.)


If one wanted to leave a one word review, this book would sum up with....AWESOME!  A great read for anyone that enjoys the YA genre, author Becca Fitzpatrick creates a fantastic story brought together with seasoned flair. 


The cover art alone draws your eye and the book teaser tells you that the story deals with a fallen angel, a sacred oath, and a forbidden love...no spoilers revealed there.  I don't know where to begin!  The characters are described in such a way that you can easily envision them as well as step into their shoes to experience the story first hand.


Told in the voice of Nora Grey, it likens to the popular series Twilight by Stephenie Meyer in both character voice and existing flaws....add in Patch her new Bio partner with the bad boy persona that's just so wrong it's right (check Julian from L.J. Smith's Forbidden Game series), and you have a melting pot of mystery, fire, and desire.


Let's just say it's a must read.  Watch for it's release in October 2009 (at least at the time of this review).  Happy reading!  =0)

So what can I say that hundreds of other teenage girls havent already said? Should we talk about Twilight and the eerie similarities that many Twi-hards claim to have seen? Or should we talk about how OMG PATCH IS SO DREAMY *sigh/giggle*? Er forget I just said that.

So lets talk about Twilight and Hush, Hush and how Fitzpatrick is glaringly obvious that shes stealing Meyers work of art despite the fact Twilight has many similar traits in a majority of YA novels and vampire novels. Key word is vampire where Hush, Hush is obviously fallen angel. If that doesnt clue you in then you obviously need to back away from the Twilight books and the sparkling vampires because in no way will you ever be Edwards lover. Face it. Its true.

So you claim the biology class is all Twilight? Seriously though? Really!? Come on, freaking 10 pages of a book screams POSER, HYPOCRITE, and TWILIGHT STEALER!? Its high schooleveryone has biology! Although if it were up to me, I would like the two to meet up in Chemistry just for the cheesy punslets put some chemistry between usor something similar.

So lets talk about Edward and Patch. Patch is the dark, edgy, sexy version of Edward. I guess you can say hes wilder. That being said the entire novel is a darker theme. The term fallen angel can be accounted for this. Like Adam and Eve, Patch took the forbidden fruit. Whether he succeeded or failed it doesnt matter, in this one act his wings were ripped. In order to finally get what he has always wished for, Nora is the one person who can help him.

Hush, Hush was provocative and addicting. It was a novel that demanded to be inhaled in one sitting alone. The characters come off the pages like a black and white movie and a splash red lipstick or blood for dramatic effect. The rippling cause and effect with a dastardly villain in a pair of killer pumps shoots fire throughout the novelboth literally and figuratively.

Nora, headstrong, knows what to do most of the time which was a relief from contrasting heroines who can barely walk a traight line. Patch&well you already heard what I have to say about him. Together we can only hope that the sequel will bring us more giggles, swooning, and the constant omg omg omg squeal!

Overall: In order to possess a copy of this book I had willingly sold my kidney, liver, and spleen. Do I regret this decision? Absolutely not.

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!
