Review: Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Cover Art: Love the cover with the falling angel and feathers being black. Very not what you would expect from an angel.
[Book 1 in the Hush, Hush series]
Ok, this is not the type of book that will appeal to everyone, if the reviews I’ve seen are any indication. It has a lot of romance, a lot of creepy, unnecessary mystery, and a lot of build up.
The plot took a while to get going, I felt. Or rather, I didn’t realize that what I was reading was the MAIN plot line until I reached the climax near the end. The mystery, I think was a little overdone BUT I personally love it and gets me reading more of the book. Almost every character that entered the story had something mysterious going on with them. This is where I wanted to dock a star for the messiness involved. However, I’m playing favourite to the mysteriousness of the novel. This won’t appeal to everyone, of course.
The characters were not all that likeable, I feel. Nora was a typical teenaged girl. I did like that she had her own beliefs and wasn’t typically falling head over heels with just any guy who crosses her path. Patch, I have to admit, is the type of guy I really like reading about in books. He’s mysterious, a bad-boy, knows what to say when to say it, confident (although he’s almost at arrogant here), and ends up having a really caring heart. His dynamic with Nora is really great and fun to read.
Also, don’t expect everything to get resolved. This IS book 1 of 4 after all. Disappointing, but at least the last book in the series is being released this year.
