    1. NOW WITH SPOILERY RANT @ BOTTOM!Hush, Hush is the story of Nora Grey, an average high school student going about her business as usual -- until her Biology teacher rearranges the class seating and places her next to the dangerous-looking new kid, Patch Cipriano.  Nora gets a weird feeling from Patch, and things just keep going from bad to worse as Nora becomes convinced that she is being stalked, and may even be the target of murderous intentions.  Add to the list Nora's strange feelings about [...]

    2. How I Would Have Ended It*This post was inspired by the fan­tas­tic videos over at howitshouldhaveended. Ital­i­cized text is the orig­i­nal pub­li­cized text from the book and is entirely the work of Becca Fitzpatrick.This ren­di­tion is entirely satire. It is not meant to offend and I mean no dis­cour­tesy. I rec­og­nize that authors put a lot of time and work into their nov­els and I am not try­ing to dis­re­spect that. Writ­ing a novel is hard work and is some­thing I hav [...]

    3. About three things I was absolutely positive:First, that Hush, Hush was, without a doubt, one of the worst Twilight rip-offs I've ever had the misfortune to read.Second, there was a part of me -- and I didn't realize how dominant that part actually was -- that insisted on reading Hush, Hush to the bitter end in the hope it would redeem itself.And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably wrong in that decision.

    4. I read this ON A DARE (a double-dog one, if you must know). And now I want to look it in the eye and ask - REALLY, BOOK? REALLY? Because it doesn't just cross the line into the uncomfortably creepy territory - it takes a cosmic leap over it.Hush, Hush may have the dubious distinction of being the worst book I've ever read. (I assumed it's a book since that's what you'd call a bunch of printed and bound pages, but I'm really applying the term 'book' loosely here). Yes, I know I'm not the intended [...]

    5. Top Ten Irrational Points in hush, hush Nora’s sex ed class begins with the teacher stating, “Human reproduction…requires mature handling. And like all science, the best approach is to learn by sleuthing. For the rest of the class, practice this technique by finding out as much as you can about your new (seating assignment) partner. Tomorrow, bring your write-up of your discoveries, and believe me, I’m going to check for authenticity…I want to see real interaction and teamwork.” This [...]

    6. Let's see. My review/What I learned from this book:Well, I learned that it was a lot of fun to write! Enjoy the fall, all!

    7. *UHHUM* WHY IS IT THAT ALL I SEE ARE NEGATIVE REVIEWS OF THIS BOOK? REALLY? REALLY? ARE WE EVEN READING THE SAME HUSH HUSH?I fell in love with Patch INSTANTLY I mean what's not to love?I also love Nora- She is such a refreshing and intriguing heroine. Her and Patch suit each other perfectly. They bounce off each other and really made me laugh with their witty and sarcy sense of humour! They bicker like hell and it's so much fun to read. I loved the twist in the end, it turned everything I though [...]

    8. So the other night I was trying to force myself to finish writing a chapter, but I was on the verge of headdesking at about 12:30, so I packed up then and went off to bed. I read some nice fluffy paranormal crap, sung myself into a subconscious lull, and then eventually fell into deep, drooling sleep.You guessed it. This is a dream story.Now, I rarely remember my dreams. But last night's was so freaking pungent that I can reel it all off right now without missing any details. Also, bear in mind [...]

    9. This book is simply appalling. I won't lie, my expectations going in about this book were pretty low. But even so, "Hush, Hush" managed to disappoint me.First, there are many similarities with "Twilight" - you have a regular average girl here, absent parents, a love affair with a dangerous supernatural boyfriend, a final showdown with a villain of his own kind. The mythology, while somewhat unusual (I haven't read anything about fallen angels in YA so far), is paper thin. The characters are shal [...]

    10. ____________________________________________“Keep in mind that people change, but the past doesn't.”____________________________________________☆☆☆☆4 HUSHY STARS!☆☆☆☆You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog!Okay so before reading this,I heard a lot of mixed feelings about this series.Some loved it,some liked it and some hated it.Now before I start my review I want to say that even that I heard a lot of things I was not spoiled or didn't even know anyth [...]

    11. Read this. Don't argue: just do it:"If you don’t like me, I’ll force myself on you until you do. We see this all the time and it’s even romanticized. Everything from romance novels to sitcoms we see women who aren’t interested in a man and we see those men determined to catch her. To pursue her, to convince her that she’ll like me eventually. If I try hard enough, if I harass her long enough she’s sure to cave in eventually. She can’t say no. And if she does I’ll just assume it [...]

    12. 5+++ StarsEven though this book has been lumped into the YA category, it definitely felt more like an adult-minded para romance to me. I love a good vampire story as much as the next para-junkie, but I have to say I now have a major weakness for fallen angels as well.While I can understand some people making comparisons between this book and Twilight (dark, brooding hero, and a heroine who, against her better judgment, can't keep herself from being drawn into the hero's mysterious world). But, i [...]

    13. I have forty eight sticky notes.Well, forty nine, I suppose, since I use the little white backing thing too. They're quite nice sticky notes, designed not to be written on but as bookmarks; at some year in the past they magically appeared in my Christmas stocking, and I haven't really used them since. I suspect there were originally fifty, so I've used two elsewhere.Anyhow. Forty nine sticky notes was what I started with when I commenced reading Hush, Hush a little after 9 AM on August 25.Less t [...]

    14. “If you can't feel, why did you kiss me?"Patch traced a finger along my collarbone, then headed south stopping at my heart. I felt it pounding through my skin. "Because I feel it here, in my heart."“All this time I've hated myself for it. I thought I'd given it up for nothing. But if I hadn't fallen, I wouldn't have met you.” “Hang on, did you just call me Angel ?” I asked.“If I did?”“I don’t like it.” He grinned. “It stays. Angel.”I really liked it!!! I loved Nora and Pa [...]

    15. It seriously disturbs me how many YA books romanticize men who make you feel unsafe (and abusive & controlling relationships in general). All of these "he wants to kill me and scares me but also protects me so SWOON" books are getting out of control. Please say it with me: a guy who is tempted to kill you IS NOT ATTRACTIVE.Like he's not special for being able to kill you your elderly neighbor could do the same. You can technically drown in a teaspoon of water, but you aren't grateful every t [...]

    16. Everyone has an aura. Everyone. Even if you're the spawn of Satan, you still have this mist of invisible energy floating around your head. See, I usually don't believe in spiritual things. Meditation, chakras, rituals I just find it cheesy or whatever.After reading this piece of shit book, I believe in auras.If I ever met Nora Grey in person (God help me if I do, I may beat her bloody), and if I could sense auras, her's would be a dark murky brown. According to the Internetz, a brown aura means [...]

    17. Abusive, creepy, controlling men that everyone finds irresistible? No thank you.I don't care if he's an angel - he could work in a fucking soup kitchen 50 hours a week and he'd still be an asshole - Patch was a disgusting 'love interest'. If you could even call him a love interest. He takes advantage of her body and her mind, but it's okay, he's dreeeeamy. I'm so tired of unhealthy relationships being portrayed as normal and okay - especially in YA. And then, let's not forget that this was essen [...]

    18. 1 starWell . I guess I can say I've done that now *tosses book in the trash*I was recommended this book by one of my best friends who, before now, I thought had great taste in books. I am now questioning our friendship (kidding, kidding).I really thought I was going to love this book. It had so many ingredients that I like. Hot boys, Dark hero, romance, danger. Turns out it also had about a bazillion of the ingredients I don't like. Predictability, instalove, abusive and controlling behavior be [...]

    19. Oh My God OMG OMG OMG! Just finished Hush Hush one minute ago. I freaking LOVE this book!!!!!!! Fave book of the year!Edit: Here's a more err professional review.After reading the first two chapters on the Simon & Schuster website, I knew I would love this book. And sure enough, I did. It's not like this topic hasn't been done before, forbidden romance. However Becca has written a novel with the same idea but the writing is exceptional. Reading Hush Hush was like riding a roller coaster, the [...]

    20. So after reading Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick something unexpected happened. This is my story:*************************Leaving my house around 6:25pm, I headed out the door and I thought, just my luck on one of the most important days of my life, it’s raining cats and dogs.I hopped into my car and raced to my appointment in hopes of not being late. I finally arrived at the building with 3 minutes to spare. I jumped out my car without grabbing an umbrella and jogged to the entrance. As I’m [...]

    21. Three words; hot, mysterious, heavenlyHush, Hush is one of those addicting reads. There is something about it, you can't quite place your finger on it, but all you know is that you need more, right now!Most surprising for me was liking Nora. Usually I can't stand her type of character. But for some reason she reminded me of my sister! Completely book smart, but doesn't have the common sense that god gave a goose. (Yes, Lace, I'm talking about you!) Patch on the other hand, where do I even start. [...]

    22. Rock hard abs, tall, lean, this is Patch Cipriano. This might sound like a hot advertisement for underwear or perfume, but ladies and gents, this is the man. That's right, in the flesh. May I also note the simple and average teenager, Nora? At least, that's what she was until she met Patch.:)Yes, this story will definitely gives you the feels, especially between Patch and Nora. *Evil Grin*But of course, you'll definitely be experiencing more than Patch's hands. Hmmm. Let's see. With the mysterio [...]

    23. When I first heard about Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, I was both intrigued and wary. The reason I was wary was because Hush, Hush is very comparable to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. Now if an author can ride on Meyer’s coattails and have an original idea and really make it shine, I’m all for that. But in the case of Hush, Hush I’m afraid to say that Becca has not only ridden on Meyer’s coattails, but hopped on her back and took every single thing from Twilight and placed it in [...]

    24. *Important update, 8/13/2011: I read this book a year and a half ago and gave it five stars. Like Evermore, I don't feel like rereading the book to assign it a rating more akin to my current tastes. If I did I would probably give it three or four stars. You can read my review from a long time ago below, though I would recommend reading other more cultivated reviewsNora Gray is the typical over-achieving high school girl in the sense that she aims to go Yale, has a best friend, and has a somewhat [...]

    25. “If you’re an angel, where are your wings?”When you start the book, you will realize that it quite similar to Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. Only this time there are no vampires or aliens. This time the girl deals with angels.The premises and the characters are similar in these three series (Lux, Twilight and Hush Hush). A small town where everyone knows everyone. The local school. A girl with no many friends and with a single parent who is alm [...]

    26. 1.5 StarsThe half is there for the sole reason that Hush, Hush did not irk me as much as Halo did. I’m a little confused by that but whatevs.Wow.Just wow. No, this is not a good wow.This is a “Holy shit, you really did that didn’t you? I can’t fucking believe that” kind of wow.A wow that just destroys my very soul and forces me to wonder WHY someone could possibly like a book such as this. But don’t worry, I have an explanation as to why someone could enjoy these honey bunches of pag [...]

    27. okay, so think of all the stereotypical ya tropes and the things that drive you crazy in young adult books and it will be this book summed up in a nutshell.our main character is an absolute idiot, like seriously - nora was an absolute pain in the ass, her decisions were stupid, she was stupid omgtch was creepy to start with, like really creepy but he did begin to grow on mesically, this book was trash.BUT THE ADDICTIVE KIND OF TRASHi ate this book up, it was so bad that it was good, like i sped [...]

    28. I'm having a hard time deciding exactly what I think about this book. On one hand I read it in under 12 hours, so it definitely caught my attention, but on the other hand it almost repulsed me, because the "hero" was so unpleasant. It's obviously aimed at teenage girls, but I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable letting a (hypothetical) daughter of mine read it until she was quite a bit older, precisely because the hero throughout the most of the book is threatening and manipulative.The book is well [...]

    29. Este libro es un BIG FAT MEH. Un poco entretenido, pero solo eso. No es un mal libro, simplemente no me dejo con ganas de continuar la serie. Quizá algún día lo haga, quizá.

    30. I hate this fucking book and everything it represents.This book has been discussed so much and hated by so many that there is basically nothing left to say. But, that sure as hell isn't going to stop me. Me? Keeping my mouth shut? Bitch where. Okay, anyways, personal story time (this is going to be just a little bit sappy so be prepared). So, my boyfriend and I have been together for almost 2 years now. We have known each other for 4 years and have been very good friends for almost as long. I kn [...]
