Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - Farah

Title: Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publication date: October, 13, 2009
Genre(s): Young Adult (Paranormal)
Publisher: HarperTeen
Source: Borrowed
Pages: 391
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.

Hush, Hush is the first book I read that’s about Fallen Angels. At first, I though it would be ridiculous to read about fallen angels, but it proved me wrong. It was a fantastic read that was filled with mystery, thrillers, and love. 
The story revolves around Nora Grey. Patch, the new student,  ends up being Norah’s biology lab partner. She finds out that Patch is a very mysterious and cocky guy, but she’s sure that there is more to him than she thinks. 
Nora might be described as stupid, but I find her clever. To actually think of the possibility of fallen angels is crazy. She was clever enough to know that something doesn’t add up when it comes to Patch and the definition of normal. Norah’s sensing of danger is spot on, she even felt something wrong when she met the two new guys at a café shop with Vee, one of them being a new transfer student. I thought she would be naïve at first, but she didn’t. Her best friend Vee is the one who is careless and naïve. Vee just wants to have fun all the time and gets herself into situations that can actually cause danger to her. However I enjoyed Vee’s company, she is supportive of Norah and always looks out for her.

Patch is a guy who seems very dangerous; at least he looks the part. He always wears black, and no one knows anything about his background or history. Patch is described as a hot guy, and his cocky comments to Norah never appease to amuse me. I adored Patch and loved his mysterious aura throughout the book.

I really enjoyed Becca’s writing style. Especially when it comes to internal character conversations. It was full of entertainment, swoon worthy moments, and action scenes all packed into one book. I recommend this book to anyone who hasn’t read it yet, and anyone who loves reading a book about fallen angels.

Happy Reading <3


  1. I liked this one a lot when I read it but I hated Crescendo. I know a lot of people continued to the like the series though so I hope you do!

  2. great review, no offence but not high on my must read/wishlist list
    glad u enjoyed it

  3. @Candace Oh! I hope i do like the second book! Because i loved the first one! :D

    @roro Thank you! But it MUST be in your TBR list! Its a really amazing book :D


  4. I have had my ups and my downs with this entire series. Hush, Hush is a good opener book and the rest of the series gives out many turns and twists and sometimes I felt they were the wrong turns but I still like the series overall. I hope you enjoy the next two books. :)

  5. Hi there! I'm a new follower (I feel the urge to disclaim, otherwise I feel like I'm somehow stalking you, if I add you, start commenting, and don't introduce myself. Believe me, I know EXACTLY how weird that sounds :D)

    Anyways! Hush, Hush was the first fallen angel book I read, too! I also thought it was going to ridiculous, but really enjoyed it, but Nora drove me NUTS. I agree with you about her actually being quite clever, and willing to embrace an odd idea, but she kept on putting herself in danger, and I kept on thinking 'no no no!'

    The book actually really creeped me out. Especially that bit where Nora thinks her room's been trahed, then... seriously. I LOVED that about it. And, of course, Patch :D

    I was reading it at home alone, and ran around the house slamming all the windows shut and turning the lights on.

  6. I remember reading this a while back around when it first got published, and the story is familiar (I remember pretty much all the major plot points though, surprisingly)... Maybe it's time for a re-read soon. :) Great review.

  7. Love your review! I was very interested to know what you thought of this book because I'm currently reading it and am halfway through. I'm enjoying it so far and, although bad boys almost never appeal to me, I have to admit that Patch's character has just drawn me in. Vee does annoy me and I'm still trying to understand what makes her such a great friend to Nora since she always seems to be leading her into trouble of some sort, but I guess she makes for an entertaining sidekick. Will see how the rest of the book goes for me:)

  8. I'm not a fan of this series. Something about the characters really grates on my nerves. Hopefully you'll continue on and enjoy it.

  9. I liked this series lot. Although some people really didn't. But I kind of not really that into Nora. I mean, she likes to stalk. Out of all 3 books I kinda don't like crescendo.
