Review of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Words to describe Hush, Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick: Mysterious. Romantic. Unsettling. Sensual. FANTASTIC.

I wasn't really planning on buying and reading this book. It originally caught my attention because it was an urban-fantasy YA novel that was linked to from the Shiver (by Maggie Stiefvater) page on Chapters.indigo.com. I'd looked at it a couple times, but didn't really think I would enjoy it because it was about angels, which I didn't think would interest me. I eventually broke down and bought it since it kept catching my attention. I definitely have to stop underestimating what interests me.

I LOVED THIS BOOK. It is definitely going to the top of my "favourite books" pile. You know when you finish a book and then want to flip back to the beginning and start all over again because you loved it so much and want to experience it again? That's the way I was with Hush, Hush.

Becca Fitzpatrick did a really good job of developing Nora, the main character. She seems to attract danger anywhere she goes, and I found my heart beating with fear and adrenaline whenever she happened to find herself alone. I also found parts to be predictable in a sense, because I would have one idea in my head and I'd be right, but then there would be *another* twist on top of that which I wouldn't see coming.

And then there's Patch, who seems underdeveloped because we don't know anything about him, which is of course the idea. He's highly mysterious and pushy and sexy. It's no wonder Nora can't keep away from him.

This book was very well written in my opinion. I love Becca's writing style and characters and everything. Even the cover art seems so perfect after having read this book. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes books like Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures, and Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver and Linger.
