Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Goodreads description: 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.

My thoughts: This book started out great. It gave off this mysterious vibe. Like, who is the *real* bad guy? And Nora, the main character, was one of my favorite characters of all time. Except the fact that she was on the edge between believable character, and non believable. And what about Patch? Can I just say "wow"??? Super hot arrogant bad boy. However, at one point I literally despised him. He's one of those characters who you can't really tell if he's good or not. Now Elliot.. At first he made me go "awwwww" but when secrets became revealed I seriously did not trust him. About 3/4 of the way into the book I started to lose interest. Everything became rushed and at some points, quite confusing. But at the end I was shocked at who the real bad guy was. Yet, technically there were many bad guys throughout the story. I'm not sure if the second book, Crescendo, is about the same characters or not, but honestly I believe their story is over. Overall, yes I would reccommend this book. It's a great story to pass the time.

I really enjoyed this book. Books like this, I can read in one day, non-stop, because it's a quick easy read, but still entertaining.

Have you read Fallen by Lauren Kate? I liked that one a lot better than Hush, Hush.
