I started reading Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick yesterday at around noon. I finished it today at about 6pm. When I’m reading that fast, it’s pretty clear that I’m into a book. This was very true in the case of Hush, Hush. I was hooked from the minute I started reading. This book had everything guaranteed to draw me in: supernatural beings, mystery, and forbidden love. It was awesome! I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoyed Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments trilogy, Devil’s Kiss by Sarwat Chadda, and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margarent Stohl. Hush, Hush is not to be missed!
Nora Grey is not interested in romance. She just wants to make good grades so that she can get into a good school. There aren’t even any guys at her school who are remotely interesting…except one. Her new biology partner, Patch, is at once terrifying and irresistable. Nora is drawn to him despite her better judgement. Even the new school counselor warns her to stay away from Patch, but Nora just can’t seem to help herself. There’s just something about a bad boy…
Well, Patch may be a little bit beyond bad. When strange things begin happening to Nora and those around her, Nora almost immediately suspects Patch of being involved. There’s too much unknown about him, but he seems to know everything about her, even her deepest, darkest secrets. But Nora can’t believe that the Patch she’s come to care about is the person responsible for the acts of violence and mayhem that are seemingly targeted at Nora.
As events continue to unfold, Nora is confronted with the horrifying yet unbelievable truth about Patch. (If the book cover doesn’t clue you in, you might want to take another look.) It is entirely possible that he’s the person attempting to kill her, but she knows it’s not him. Who could it be? What is it about Nora that is making her a target? Her connection to Patch, or her own family secrets? Read Hush, Hush to learn about one girl’s connection to the one guy who could be her ultimate protector or her fall from grace.
The story doesn’t end there, folks! The sequel to Hush, Hush comes out November 16th. (I don’t know if I can wait that long, but I’ll do my best.) The title is Crescendo, and you can learn more on Becca Fitzpatrick’s webpage, http://beccafitzpatrick.com/index.html. See the awesome cover of Crescendo below. Happy reading!
