Throwback Thursday: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Throwback Thursday is a weekly feature co-hosted by Never Too Fond of Books and The Housework Can Wait. This is a fun way to write about and review beloved books we haven't read in a while. I'm using is as an opportunity to go back and review books that I read before I started actually reviewing books. Time to play a little catch up!

 Genre: Young Adult Fiction (Fantasy/Paranormal Romance)

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...until Patch comes 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 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 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.
My Review: 
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick is the first book in the Hush, Hush Series. This book has so many things I love to have in the books I read. I'm already an Angel/Fallen angel fan. I just can't get enough of them and the mystery that surrounds them. Which leads me to the next thing I love to have in books: The handsome, mysterious bad boy. Patch is the epitome of dark and mysterious. I enjoyed the intense relationship that formed between Patch and Nora. It was full of the anticipation factor which draws me right into a book. I've seen many reviews compare the book to Twilight, and I can definitely see similarities too, but I don't feel like it took away from the story. Lastly, I loved the cover. As I've said before, I'm a sucker for a pretty cover. The cover of Hush, Hush is lovely and a perfect fit for the book. Hush, Hush was one of those books that wouldn't let me put it down.

  1. What a gorgeous cover! I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for a pretty cover too. Sounds like a really interesting read!

    Also, great use of Throwback Thursday! Awesome idea to use it to review books from your pre-blogging days.

  2. I must admit, I haven't read this one either! Hopefully I can one day.

  3. I must say Patch is probably the best name ever for a "mysterious bad boy."

  4. I love book trailers! They are so much fun to watch!


  5. I picked up this book solely on it's cover a while back because it is, I think, one of the best covers EVER!!! Bummer thing is that I haven't been able to start reading it yet, but it's waiting for me... And now that I've read more since then, I KNOW I'll like it, despite the mixed reviews I saw a while ago (the same ones you saw) b/c I love angel/fallen stories, too!
