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. Not until Patch came 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 who 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 way 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.
One thing that we can say about this book is that while your reading it, it will keep you guessing! You can also find yourself immersed in the story. It's a well written story that you find is impossible to put down and once you finsih it, you're sad it's over and need to find out what happens in the next book.You wonder if Nora is really losing her mind or is it something more sinister. Sometimes, it's hard to determine what is reality and what is not. Even after finishing it, I'll re-read it like it is the first time all over again. This is another one of those books that it would be wise to pick up the second book, Crescendo, immediately after finishing Hush Hush or get it when you buy/borrow Hush Hush.
