Hush, Hush by Becca FitzpatrickHush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush Hush #1
Published by Simon and Schuster on October 13, 2009
Genres: Love & Romance, Paranormal, Young Adult
Pages: 416


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.

I love Hush, Hush. Completely. Utterly. Without a doubt. You get the point. The way that Becca explains everything so that it doesn’t bombard you with information, but also doesn’t five you so little that you have to draw your own wacky conclusions just to fill in the holes. No. She feeds you the info rationally, but enough, just to make you crave more of the world of Hush, Hush…and of Patch.

Ah, now there’s one sexy, badass, not to mention cocky, fallen angel. I was there all along the way with Nora as she felt first angry at Patch, scared of Patch, attracted to Patch, curious about Patch, back to scared, and finally in love with Patch. Already in love with this world, all he’s going to do is pull you in deeper and deeper until you don’t want to stop reading, turning the pages frantically.

On the subject of characters, let’s turn away from the main guy character, onto the narrator. Nora. Nora is what you would call the outcast of the school along with her best friend Vee, who, at times, can be a bitch. Excuse my language.  They’re the enemies of Queen Bee Marcie Millar, and are in their own little world where nothing can really hurt them. Their spots in the social ladder isn’t suprising, nor are their personalities. Nora is the pratical one, the worrier, the “what if” person while Vee is the outgoing, flirty one who urges Nora on. In other words, they complete each other and balance one another.

Now off that subject, This book goes at a perfect pace for a book such as this.. Not too slow, not too fast, where you won’t be confused, and you won’t be bored. Just when you think that you’ve figured everything out, you read a chapter, and find out you’ve got everything wrong. Again. Goodness knows, I was shocked out of my mind at some parts!

  1. I loved this series. I actually just finished up with finale, and I thought that she wrapped this book up exactly the way I had hoped. She is quite a talented author, in my opinion, and she kept me coming back for more. I loved the characters, and although I should have guessed some of the secret twists, they still left me shocked and extremely satisfied in the end. I personally thought that maybe Nora should not have been such a weak character throughout the books, but in the end I realized that weakness is not about strength it is about the personality of her characters. Nora had a strong personality and she always placed the well being of others before her. In the end, I was extremely satisfied with the series and I would definitely love to read more from her.

  2. I am such a huge fan of this series. It makes me sad to see so many people that seriously despise it. But, I like it and that is all that matters, I suppose. I am happy to see that one of my trusted bloggers loves it like I do. Becca is a great writer and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us fans next! Thanks for the review!
