Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly interested in any of the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smiles and his eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement, 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 than unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient Battle between immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
Hey! I'm finally back after a long time of reading, but I have good news for you! I've finally finished all my coursework so that means I have plenty more free time to read, so there shall be more updates. Though then again I have THOUSANDS! Of books to get through.
So I've just finished reading the book Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. And I know what your all thinking by the front cover that it's going to be another 'Vampire' book, but I assure you it's not.
Hush, Hush is about a girl named Nora Grey. Nora is a good girl that would never step a foot out of line and always does what her mother says, she's always home on time and doesn't go anywhere without telling her mother where she is at all times.
Since the death of her father Nora has found it hard, her mother is hardly there anymore working away on jobs far from home and will leave for several days meaning Nora has the house to herself, though she's alone most of the time and it gets quite lonely.
Nora never found herself with a boy because it caused her to loose focus and not get good grades till one day in her Biology class on the first day of Sex Education her teacher decides to change the seating plan to boy and girl. Meaning Nora would no longer be sitting next to her life long best friend Vee Skyes. Nora is now forced to sit next to Patch, a kid she has never met before since she has never seen him round school. Nora doesn't know what to think about him, he's rude, quite and dirty plus a little scary. But Nora can't help but feel herself been drawn to him even if she can't help it.
But meeting Patch didn't turn out the way she thought it would, soon after meeting him, strange things start to happen. She starts to hear voices in her head and See's things that she doesn't know if there real or not, and he starts to get more creepy. As the story thickens someone starts to stalk her, wearing a ski mask and jumps in front of her car, ruffles her room about and tries to kill her twice.
It all starts to get worse as Vee invites the two new boys from school out on a double date, they seem to be fine but Elliot and Jules soon start to have a twist in them too.
Join Nora on an adventure to find out what is really happening in her life and what she is about to find out may shock her for life.
Hush, Hush is a mysterious, exciting action packed book that is sprinkled with a bit of sexy and will keep you on the edge of your seat, surprise you in lots of different places and have shocking things waiting to happen just after every page. Once you start to read it you can not set it down and you will always be thinking about Nora, Vee, Patch, Elliott and Jules. The book is well written and makes you thing something entirely different till the end, it really grabs you into and and you will never get out until you have read it.
I thought this book was amazing! One of the best books I've ever read since I started reading The Morganville Vampire ones a while back. The author Becca Fitzpatrick is a very talented woman who can write very well and uses very good words.
This is the first book I have read that is to do with about fallen angels and such and let me tell you, I'm glad it was my first on. From now on I shall be reading a lot more books like this if I can find some and also her second book to this one, which I cannot wait to read.
I recommend this book for anyone who may just want to have a break from Vampire books or just maybe want to read something entirely different. Or they may want a book with a bit of a kick in it.
The sequel to HUSH, HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick is out now and called CRESENDO
