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!!
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.
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.
Ive avoided reading Hush, Hush since it first debuted. To me it looked like just another cheesy romance novel. When I got this book for Christmas I began reading, figuring Id finish it then donate it to my local library. I was completely hooked from the beginning. The characters were unique and the story was dark and alluring, much like one of the main characters, Patch. Patch was sexy, brooding and seductive. He makes your heart melt and your soul go lapse. He was by far my favorite character. Nora was also very well-written. She was not without fault, but those faults added to her persona. She was human, the romance was perfect.Im extremely glad I read this book and I suggest you to pick it up also. I have the sequel, Crescendo beside me and, let me tell you, Im dying to read it. Just give this book a chance, Im glad I did.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was very inspiring. It would have to be one of the best books I ever read. The books about a girl named Norah who was forced to be Patch"s lab partner, then the story get going from there. Patch is a fallen angel that was sent to protect Norah. Norah doesn't find out until she falls in love with him. I like this book a lot because it seems so realistic. Like there really is angels living with us and we don't know it.
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!
