Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was hands down the best YA Book 1 I have read since the Hunger Games. To top it off, it is also the best YA-paranormal romance book I have read to-date. Granted, I haven't read many...actually I have only read about 4--the Twilight Saga. Quite frankly, not much needs to happen in order for any book to beat out the Twilight Saga, but Hush, Hush did it with style.
Hush, Hush kept me on the edge of my seat as I witnessed the complex, whirlwind romance bloom between Nora Grey and her newly assigned BIO partner Patch Cipriano, who is handsome, mysterious, and obviously hiding something. Now you may be saying to yourself, "Why that sounds awfully familiar" (cue Twilight-gagging sound effects). Honestly, I was suspect of the book at that point as well, but I blazed forward (mostly because it was a holiday weekend, and I didn't have anything else to read), and, by george, I am glad I did! Nora and Patch's love-hate-love relationship bloomed with a much more deep-seeded and dark root than I anticipated. Nora and Patch's relationship moves past the out-of-no-where-yea-right love story of Bella and Edward, and settles into a place where it is given the opportunity to develop and unfold. While I do have a bone to pick with how the book's ending, all-in-all I LOVED it (which may be evident by the fact that I finished its 400+ pages in about 2.5 days).
In a nut shell Hush, Hush= Fallen angels, murder, sacrifice=MUST READ
Go pick it up and start reading...I am moving onto Book 2 Crescendo.
