Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

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.

What can I say about Hush, Hush. Well, I thought it was pretty great. The love story between the main character, Nora, and Patch was interesting to say the least. Patch pretty much gives off a creeper stalker status, so he is kind of hard to like at first. He is an ultimate bad boy with an evil twist. Although as the book progressed, I did end up liking Patch more and more. Nora was a bit too boring and uninteresting. I found the parts with just her to be dull.

I definitely liked Hush, Hush because it was a read that was hard to put down. It did remind me of Fallen by Lauren Kate a lot though. As I write this review and try to recall the story, I find myself confusing the two. I do remember that the ending was amazing. I thought it ended beautifully. It was an exciting and thrilling read with a great deal of suspense and angst. I am looking forward to reading the sequel, Crescendo later this year.

Rating: 3.5/5

Swords are for fighting,


  1. I'm not sold on Patch but I love the way she writes. Very exciting.

  2. haha Elizabeth, when I read this book, I didn't like Patch but I did like Nora. :P I guess I just liked that she seemed practical, even if she was a bit dull.
    Great review! I can't wait for CRESCENDO either :D
