Hush, Hush: Review
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Series: Hush, Hush #1
A SACRED OATH
A FALLEN ANGEL
A FORBIDDEN LOVE
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems 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 she 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 Nora her life. (Goodreads)
So I was looking on Goodreads and this book has so many bad reviews! That's crazy to me because I absolutely loved it. Once I started reading this book I was hooked. It was almost addicting and it's a really fast read. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I absolutely loved Patch. He's all dark and mysterious and he even has a motorcycle. Total bad boy. That's my type so maybe that's why I liked him while others hated him. But it wasn't like he was a complete a-hole all the time or anything, he has feelings and he expresses that and he didn't kill Nora even when he could have so that doesn't make him such a horrible guy, right? haha. He might come off a little bad but deep down he's a softy, I just know it. He reminds me of my hunny. :) If it wasn't for him, Nora wouldn't even be alive. One person who I really didn't like was Nora's friend Vee. For some reason she really bothered me. She didn't really listen to Nora when she should have and she put them all in danger. I also didn't like the school psychologist or psychiatrist whichever one she was. I'm not going to say too much about her because I don't want to give anything away. But have you seen Pretty Little Liars? She totally reminds me of Meredith. If you haven't seen it then just ignore that statement because it won't make any sense.
I really like books about fallen angels and I think the author did a great job with this one. The plot was wonderfully done. There are twists and turns, things you don't expect and it's not totally predictable like a lot of other books out there. I'm definitely going to be reading the next one. Try borrowing this one from a friend or from your library. Maybe you'll be like me and enjoy it and if you don't you won't be losing anything but a little time.
*I borrowed this book from the library.
