Basic Book Review for Hush Hush

Last week, between all the busy chaos that last week brought, I actually found time here and there to read a book.  Very exciting.  I read Hush Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick in a matter of a few days.  


Here is the Goodreads cover and blurb about the book.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)

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...until Patch comes 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 whom 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 far 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. 


On a movie rating scale I give it a PG and for the stars, I'm going to give it a...




wait for it...




stop peeking down the screen...




it's coming...









That's right, four out of five stars.  I thought the pacing was great and the tension was just right.  Other than that, even though the pacing was good, it seemed a tad bit long.  Really, just a tad.  And, although the cover is attractive, for some reason the man on the front isn't as appealing.  But, the awesome feathers and  overall feeling make up for that.  Just sayin'.


It's definitely worth reading, though, and for your information the second book, Crescendo is already on my list of super near future reads.  


Have you read this book?  What did you think?

  1. Ummm ... I've read it and if you check my blog, it'll be pretty clear how I feel about this book. The thing is, I liked the story. It kept me entertained. The mythology and everything was cool.

    I haven't gone into talking about this book too much though because I don't only have good things.

  2. Quinn, I think I actually got the book idea from your blog. But that was just because you mentioned it, not because I read your review. I'll go read it right now.
