Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick Review

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.

I couldn't agree more with everyone saying angels are the new vampires, because they are! I picked tis up because of the raving reviews for it and I couldn't be happier. This was such a great book! So much happened and so much emotion filled me, I never wanted it to stop.

I loved Patch's character. He was sarcastic, but sweet with a whole lot of funny. Nora would always get in trouble because Patch talks, and her teachers think it's her and I found myself always laughing there. Nora is a good girl, and there's no doubt about that and both her mother and her are greving the lost of Nora's father. But Patch seems to make everyone feel safe and happy and when Nora was with him, I knew nothing bad would happen, and when she wasn't with him, I would be on the edge of my seat freaking out because someone was coming.

So many characters in the book you won't know what to think of them. You won't know if you should trust them or not and the ending is a total shocker.

Never before have I seen a cover with a guy on it. I mean there has been a guy, but his head would always be cut off, but here it's not. The angel falling from the sky is exactl what Patch is - a fallen angel, but wth the twists and turns in the book, you won't know if he's good or bad.

But luckily the book does have a happy ending and everything is tied in a perfect knot. And if you love this book, be ready for the sequal. Fitzpatrick knows how to grab her readers attention and put them through a crazy roller coaster.

You don't want to miss this book.

Overall, I loved it and reccommend you reading this one.
