HUSH, HUSH


Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

About This Book:
Falling in love was never so easy . . .
or so deadly.

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.

Genre: YA, urban fantasy

Verdict: Okey...

My Take On This Book:
The story telling quality while not that compelling is still good, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5. The story itself while not extremely great, it's not too bad either. I would give it another 3.5 out of 5. The ending closed the story nicely and I would give it a 4 out of 5. It's not a masterpiece but it's an enjoyable read none the less.

Cherry's Rating: 3.5 out of 5 cherries

I've been wanting to read this one but it's not on my must-read-immediately list.

Thanks for the contest links!

There's been so much talk about this one, but it hasn't really been on my list to read. Glad you posted your opinion on this, because now I don't feel like I'm completely missing out by not reading it. But if it comes up, I'm glad to know it's entertaining.

Not on my must-list either, but I've wondered about it. I'm glad I read your review!

On another note: I've given you an award over at my blog. I sent you an email about it but didn't know whether it went through or not.

Great review--I've seen a few so-so reviews of it. It's not my usual genre anyway. Great review! :)
