Hush, Hush by 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...until Patch comes 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 whom 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 far 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 from Goodreads)

I loved this book! I couldn't put it down. It grabbed my attention from the beginning, and at the end I was hungry for more. This is the first angel book I read and after reading this I found that I love them!

The plot was very clever...however I couldn't help but noticing the profuse similarities between this book and Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. The average girl and the dark mysterious guy getting to know each other after being forced to be lab partners sounded all too familiar. Even the worlds they were set it sounded the same.

I didn't particularly like Nora's character as sometimes you couldn't help but get a little annoyed at her. On the other hand, Patch was just like any other paranormal guy character...AWESOME! I loved seeing their relationship develop throughout the book. I also liked Nora's best friend, Vee, as she was the main source of hilarious in this book! 

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was a new gateway into the angel world and I can't wait to read the sequel Crescendo and more angel books!

 5 stars - Digest it and eating it again! :D


  1. I read this, and I thought it was okay. :) The similarities between this and Twilight bothered me a little too much, I think. I thought Vee was awesome, though! She definitely kept me entertained. Great review!

  2. Thanks Kat! :) Glad to know we had similar thoughts ;)
