Hush, Hush – A Review

I love to read – there’s nothing better than snuggling up with our dog, Daisy, on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book. So even though my blog is not specifically tailored towards book reviews, I thought it might be nice to share my thoughts about some of the titles I read. Hopefully you’ll follow along! 🙂

When I purchased the book Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was walking around Barnes and Noble (in the YA section, of course), and several teens were browsing there as well. One of them pointed out to me several of her favorite books, and the Hush, Hush series was at the top of her list. So I decided I’d give it a try.

The first book in a series of four, Hush, Hush introduces the story of Nora and Patch. They are thrown together as lab partners at their high school…and Nora couldn’t be more frustrated with the situation. Patch was seemingly her opposite, and was mostly an annoyance to her. However as time goes by, Nora begins to get to know Patch, while at the same time being drawn in by his muscled body and mesmerizing eyes.

As Nora and Patch grow closer, Nora has more questions than answers. There is something different about Patch, but she can’t place her finger on it. Things start happening to her and to people around her, and she doesn’t know whom to trust…and whom to suspect. Is Patch someone she can feel safe with, or is he pulling her into a world full of danger?

I enjoyed reading Hush, Hush – it had well-developed characters, and there was a romantic tension between Nora and Patch that wove throughout most of the book. I liked how I could relate to the character’s thoughts and actions, and how it felt like I was right there in the middle of their world.

If you’re looking for a book with romance, suspense, and fantasy that will keep you turning the pages, I’d recommend Hush, Hush! And the great thing is, once you finish this book, you can move on to the next book in the series – Crescendo. I’ve started reading it and so far, so good. 😉
