Book Review: Hush, Hush

Hush, HushImage
Becca Fitzpatrick
Young adult paranormal romance?
3/5

 

                Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been 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 see inside her. Patch manages to draw Nora to him against her better judgment.
                However, 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. 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 who have fallen-and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

 

_____Book Review!_____

 

                It really is hush, hush considering even though I knew it was about ‘Angels’ or something along those lines it took a really, and I mean really long time to get to that. Too just admit it took almost the entire book, it wasn’t until practically the end you find out for sure even though, yes, it’s obvious but sometimes you just can’t take things for granted.
                I actually enjoyed this book quite a bit, a lot more than most other 3 star books I’ve read, however I am having a dilemma about how to rate this book. I really don’t know, I mean, on one hand I super enjoyed it but on the other hand it was just lacking something from me. It lacked some oomph that I find in other books I guess, which is kind of frustrating but expected with a book as over clichéd as any books with angel romances are.
                That being said, the book wasn’t bad. I thought the actual writing was well done, easy to follow and understand and I really enjoyed most of the characters. There were a couple characters that seemed out of placed, or kind of like they were just thrown into the story to make it more interesting but never really had much of a purpose other than being a filler of the main plot line. Did anyone else who has read Hush, Hush feel that way as well? I am talking about, in particular the plot line between Patch and Miss Greene/Diana (Whatever, I can’t remember for sure if that’s her name because she was so random with her forbidding warnings and random showing up here and there)>
                Patch sounded dark, mysterious and eye catching. Like the kind of guy you’d swoon over when he’d walk into the room but obviously there is more than meets the eye with Patch because even though he’s a fallen angel he seems to be able to fall in love…weird? Yes… did that capture my interest? Yes! Authors mission was a success!
                The main character Nora was likeable, though she was kind of dumb… somehow she missed the obvious a lot and somehow she just… I don’t know but she was likeable I enjoyed her character although sometimes she seemed out of character? I know that doesn’t make sense but that’s the only way I can think to explain it? I mean…something about her bugs me but I like her… I am weird I understand this ha ha.
                My actual favorite character was actually her best friend Vee who I thought was loads of fun, so hilarious and acted like a 16 year old girl in my opinion whereas some of the other characters somehow managed to miss that mark. Which reminds me Nora mentions that Vee is voluptuous like a hundred times… Is this supposed to be a sign that Nora is jealous of her friend’s curves or an insult or what?
                I think you would enjoy this book if you liked books like Fallen, or Twilight, or anything along those lines. I’m actually interested in checking out the rest of the series so I will be doing that soon.
                Hope you’re all having a lovely day and I’ll be back tomorrow probably with another review! Or discussion? Can you even call what I write a review?
