[Review] Hush, Hush


Hush, Hush
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



NOTE: This review was written almost two years ago! Just pushing it to my blog because I'm about to start book #2 FINALLY! Spoilers, ahoy!

First COMPLETE book read on my new Kindle!

As much as I love my vampire stories, I love stories delve into other areas of the paranormal especially when coupled with quasi-theology. This was definitely an enthralling read. I always pit sorta bad/sorta good guys against my favorite gray area character, and at first, it took me a little while to warm up to Patch. He was cute and dangerous, but his manipulativeness was a bit much in the beginning. However, I understand that was a necessary means to aid the story and to build him as a character.

I liked Nora a lot and really enjoyed reading the story from her POV. She was smart and stronger than she gave herself credit for. I was expecting her to be overly annoying because she is a teen, but she was such a lovable character (Vee was, too, in her own way). The only thing that REALLY annoyed me about her was that she pointed out TOO MANY times that Patch was internally laughing at her during most of the story. How many times do we need to hear that even though he didn't smile he was laughing on the inside at her?

There was one part that didn't make sense to me or maybe I missed something altogether. Patch mentioned he'd thought about killing Nora a few times during the story, but in the same breath he says that her death needed to be sacrificial. How sacrificial would stabbing her to death in the kitchen or throwing her off a roller coaster been? Maybe I'm just missing something.

A good Saturday read. Wonder if the author plans to write more about this duo.
