“Hush, Hush” by Becca Fitzpatrick

Back of the Book:

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.

Misty’s Review on

The many sides of Nora: She continually suspects Patch (and Elliot, and just about everyone else in this story), and with good reason. However, she then continually ignores her instincts and puts herself in danger. In fact, she can’t seem to agree with herself. She will think to herself that Patch is stalking her and trying to kill her, and then within pages think ‘Oh, but he could never hurt me.’ This just cycles and cycles throughout the story.

The very worst thing about this book is Nora. She’s the main character, and she’s an idiot. What is it with so many of the young adult books featuring idiots these days?! She randomly meets a guy she thinks kills someone from his old school and instead of just staying away from him, she decides to play detective – a really bad detective at that. :-/

The very best thing about this book is Patch’s ability to stalk Nora without her ever calling the police, telling her mom, or letting anyone in authority know that she thinks he’s stalking her. Again, idiot. Also, it should say a lot that this is the best thing I can think of about the book…
