Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Published by Simon & Schuster
$17.99 (Hardcover)
Genre: YA

FTC: I bought this book

Description from book:
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora 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 seems 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 she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen--and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

My Thoughts:
I really liked this book. While most YA books now have the hott, misunderstood, boy next door as the love interest, not this book. Patch is definitely the ultimate bad boy. It was refreshing to have a different type of love story.
I read a couple reviews for this book before I actually started to read it and a common complaint in those reviews was the best friend, Vee. I don't agree with this. While Vee's character is crazy, loud, and out there, she was a good contrast from Nora. I enjoyed Vee's crazy boldness.
Most of the time I can guess who the bad guys are and pretty much the whole story plot almost by the beginning of the book. This one had me guessing the whole book and I had to keep reading until I found out all the answers. It was a can't put down type of book.
Overall, I want to give it a ...10/10!

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
