Review HUSH HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick

I thought I would try this. It is a way to post reviews you have done on GoodReads on blogger without having to re-type it all...

Hush, Hush Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have read many rave reviews for this book, (including my co-blogger on My Pile of Books already) and some that didn't like the sexual tension and how it was presented.

As long as this book isn't read by super hormonal teenagers I thought it was great! Patch was predatorial at times, but I think Nora's reactions to him were soemthing many girls can relate to!

I was that nerdy girl that had crushes on the "bad boys" in school. One in particular. We flirted in class ALL the time, and he exasperated me much the way Patch exhasperated Nora. Of course I didn't take it any farther, but reading this book was kindof a "what might have been" experience for me, if I had let our flirting relationship be anything more.

I also loved the mythology.

My biggest complaint. Take a basic story arch of Twilight and/or The Dark Divine and you practically have the same story. Just a different "monster". But hey, it works, it sells and I couldn't put it down last night!
