    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 intention...

    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.

    How I Would Have Ended It*This post was inspired by the fantastic videos over at www.howitshouldhaveended.com. 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 ...

    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 'boo...

    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 ...

    *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 t...

    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 no...

    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 ...

    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 bei...

    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 ...

    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 b...

    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 t...

    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 H...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 grabbin...

    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...

    *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 reviews...Nora Gray is the typical over-achieving high school girl in the sense that she a...

    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 ...

    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...

    1 star In a Word : Nope The Story "A SACRED OATHA FALLEN ANGELA FORBIDDEN LOVE"Sounds awesome right?Patch is an overprotective (bordering on abusive) fallen angel. Nora is a typical high school student. Aaaaaand we all know where this is going don't we? Initial thoughts Well .... 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 writing this review with minimal profanity; not because I don't have a bunch of in my vernacular, but because I want this review to be taken as serious as possible. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick is dangerous. The messages in it, while most likely unintentional, defends stalking and attempted murder under the guise of love. The relationship between Nora and Patch is toxic, but the strange thing is that Nora knows this and yet is still being...

    Okay, so whilst I didn't completely dislike this book, I definitely had some issues with it! This puts me firmly in the minority as this seems to be a lot of people's favourite YA. I feel like I'm missing something as, for me, it really wasn't all that special (sorry!). Please, please tell me what you loved about it, if you have read it, as this series sounds so promising and I really want to like it!The plot follows teenage Nora Grey and her lov...

    Let it be said that I, Vanessa Hendersen, am a huge glutton for punishment. Why else would I put myself through so many terrible books? This year alone I've read Evermore, Halo and Hades, even Marked.So why do I keep coming back? I don't know. I suppose there's some entertainment to be had, and if you want to write a book of your own some day, it shows you all the hallmarks of bad writing and clichés to avoid. This is going to be the last book I...

    (Warning: this review contains insults, passionate hatred, inappropriate jokes and not very nice things about this book. You have been warned.)Hush, hush by Becca FAILSpatrick is the stupidest book I have ever read. The most horrifying Twilight rip-off I've ever seen on a bookshelf. Horrifying because of the glorified BAD, fucking ABUSIVE romance. The characters were all idiots. Especially Nora. Nora is the kind of character that wouldn't be able...

    I avoided this book like it was contagious or something - almost everybody is so negative when it comes to Hush Hush. But last night I decided that it was about time for me to cross over to the dark side, and I enjoyed every second of it! Feel free to call me pathetic sucker for hot bad boys, troubled girls and forbidden romance... S**t! I'm such a girl! I guess my feminist alter ego lost this battle.http://jacitamati.blogspot.com/2011/0...

    What can I say...Hush,Hush gave Twilight a bad name? I mean, I heard so much about Hush,Hush being the next Twilight phenomenon...but what phenomenal for me was that I keep grunting and rolling my eyes constantly over 486 pages!Reading Twilight, I felt tingles of guilty pleasure and butterflies in my stomach all the way through the end. I can't stand Bella but at least I know what she wants. She wants to die and be a vampire like Edward. And be s...
