My Rating: 5/5Stars
Plot: I didn’t really think I’d like this book. I thought it would just be about a girl falling in love with this bad-ass fallen angel, but Hush, Hush turned out to be sooo much more. It was creepy, suspenseful, steamy, and extremely addicting.
I stayed up late on a Friday night to finish it, and spent a good couple of hours in the morning reading it. I was so sad when I was forty pages away and had to leave my book for a softball game. I rarely feel like the world will end when I stop reading a book, so that says something.
Hush, Hush had me hooked from the absolute beginning. There were a lot of great unexpected turns in the plot, and I really like the angle Fitzpatrick took to angels, and the way she put a twist on it.
Characters: Nora was awesome. I loved reading from her perspective.
I have to admit, at first I hated patch. He was cocky, arrogant, and thought he knew everything. I also didn’t like the fact that Nora was so attracted to him, because if anyone acted the way he did, the LAST thing I would do would be attracted to him.
But, I admit, as the book wore on, I fell in love with Patch. I don’t know if he changed, or he just grew on me, but by the end of the book, I was swooning.
Writing: Becca Fitzpatrick completely sucked me into her book. Her writing was addicting, and it flowed really smoothly. She built suspense seamlessly, and even though the book was nearly four hundred pages, it was really fast paced.
Ending: The ending was perfect! It stayed exciting right up until the very end, and now I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the next book in the series, Crescendo.
Now that I know what was going on, I really want to re-read the story and match up what I know now to what I didn’t know back then.
Cover: The cover is just soo pretty. 🙂 It has a metallicy shine, and I love the cover art. The angel losing its’ wing feathers signifies a lot for the story, and I love that near the top of the book, the feathers turn to red.
Lovely Line: He stayed put, eyeing me, considering.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” I challenged.
He tipped forward, preparing to stand. “Because you’re nothing like what I expected.”
“Neither are you,” I countered. “You’re worse.” (Page 80)
The Final Verdict: I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since around Christmas time, and I wish I had started it sooner. It was a fantastic opening to the series, and I can’t wait to read everything else Becca Fitzpatrick writes. http://www.amazon.ca/Hush-Becca-Fitzpatrick/dp/1416989412/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323560445&sr=8-1
