Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


Hush, Hush
Becca Fitzpatrick

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.


Again, I'm not sure how to explain this book.

I didn't love it as much as I loved Fallen. I suppose that's a good place to start.

Patch was almost too arrogant for me at times. In Fallen, I understood his behavior by the end of the book. Here, I feel like I never got a proper explanation.

The book was the slightest bit predictable. A couple times I found myself thinking one way, the author threw in a couple or curves, I changed my thinking, yet the end results was exactly what I originally thought.

Somethings were also kind of odd. I don't want to go into it, but there were a few things that just didn't make logical sense for the world of the story (which is very close to this world). But maybe I'm just picky.

Otherwise, it was a very good book. I liked Nora, though I didn't always understand her thought process. The mystery in the book was pretty fabulous. Vee was the perfect character to help throw in those curve balls. And I liked the first chapter. I've bookmarked a couple of passages and shown them off to my friends just because they make me giggle. And I really liked the prologue, it was very different from what you'd think.

Overall, this was a very good book and everyone should try reading it.

  3. It's one of those books recommended by bloggers that were actually translated into my native language. Yet, I don't really feel tempted to read it. Is it in the(let's call it) "Twilight style"? Because I'm a bit fed up with such books. Or maybe the "Hush, Hush"'s atmosphere is completely different?
