Monkey Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Summary (from

Falling in love was never so easy . . .

or so deadly.

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. Not until Patch came 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 who 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 way 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 Opinion:

I can now die happy, knowing I've read this amazing book. Yeah, I loved it that much.
Everyone was right, Becca has created a super dangerous but yet enticing world, and I couldn't help but to fall for Patch along with Nora.

Hush, Hush begins in 1565, introducing us to Patch and a boy called Chauncey. Patch forces the boy to take an oath, one that you cannot refuse to obey.

Fast forward to the present day.
We meet Nora Grey, simple high school student, and her best friend Vee Sky in a biology class. Enter Patch -whose last name we don't discover until half of the book's been read-. After Coach McConaughy decides it's time to make a new seating chart, Nora and Patch end up becoming each other's bio partner.

When Coach gives them their first asignment, it's clear from a start that school's the last thing Patch is interested in. While he certainly shows no interest in finishing his task, the same thing cannot be said about his interest in Nora.

So, they meet again. And again. And every time, sparks fly between them, undeniably real.
Nora is torn between the urge to escape him, and the need to kiss him.

Enter Elliot and Jules. Apparently rich kids, Elliot's transferred to Coldwater High School, and is now Nora and Vee's classmate. Jules remains in the background, barely making appereances. Which only makes him the more mysterious. As I read about him, I had a feeling there was just something wrong there. Hmm...

And now Nora's being followed. And there's someone in her mind... But who is it?

Nora'll find out the truth about Patch, even if it represents a risk to her life.
Because there's one huge reason why Patch is after her.
To kill her.
Because a fallen angel needs a human sacrifice to become human.
Will Nora make the ultimate sacrifice?

Monkey Rating: 5 Monkeys!

If this book is still in your To Be Read pile, GO READ IT NOW!
I know I'll read it again soon, when I find me a printed copy of the book.

How did I read this book you may ask? On E-Book format.
How are my eyes after reading it non-stop (how could I stop when I was dying to find out Patch's true intentions!)? OK. Now that I'm done. I only stopped reading to get some sleep, because my eyes were begging me to rest. Last night I couldn't tell the difference between an l and an I.

I'll always remember Becca for being the very first author I interviewed! Thanks Becca for being so nice!
