Review: hush,hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


I recently finished hush,hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. It was hard to resist with that cover and the two chapter tease I had months ago. It took me a while to finally get the book but once I started I could not stop. I read on a lot of blogs that it was too much like Twilight, but to me, while there was similarities, it was certainly its own book. Here's the summary:

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.

And here's my review!:

Minor Spoilers Below-
First off, the cover art was absolutely breathtaking. There was just something about it, I had to read this book. Luckily for me, it was well worth it. I honestly didn't sense the similarities to Twilight while reading it, even though after they were mentioned I wouldn't be able to deny that they are there. Saying that, I think the book had enough of it's own qualities to push back the idea that it was just a knock off of Twilight. For one, Patch is one sexy angel, not a vampire. I'm thankful for that because most everything that I have read lately is vampire related. The chemistry between Patch and Nora is something uncommon in many books. They just spark. Nora's best friend, Vee, is somewhat out there, but she's a good friend and that's really what matters right!? I, for one, didn't like Elliot in the book, not even when they first met, something about him just felt off. Overall, this book was amazing! I will pass it around throughout the family, and it will definately be reread. Now comes the time to wait for the next installment, Crescendo. Fitzpatrick does an awesome job keeping the reader interested, and the surprises just kept coming. I definately didn't figure out what was going to happen, and that for one is a big feat because a lot of authors give that away to soon. Two thumbs up!

I will be posting a review later in the year when Becca's calander frees up a bit! So be on the lookout. That's all for this post!

I read all of these other reviews and everyone is so technical about characterization and plot and yadda yadda yadda. I just really tell how I felt about it so i'm glad it had some type of affect for someone. I hope you like it. :)

I actually got a copy a day or so after I read your post...I just have to get around to reading it!

By the way, whenever I try to leave a comment on your posts, there seem to be some graphic complications; the word verification isn't there and I have to tab down to find it. It may just be my computer but, just in case, you may want to ask another blogger to try to leave a comment and see what happens for them...
