“Read it because I was bored. Not that bad but not that good either. I liked the suspense and the fast turn of events but I don't think the plot was thoroughly done. Might read the next ones if I get bored enough. Obvious resemblance to Twilight but I like the characters here better.”Hanan H wrote this review Wednesday, May 1, 2013.

“I'm not always a huge fan of young adult novels because, a lot of times, I find the heroines too whiny and self absorbed, or there is too much high school drama mixed in with the plot. Hush Hush, however, was a very delightful read. Although clearly written for a younger audience, I found the plot gripping and the characters easy to relate to.
The best part of this book was the romance between Patch and Nora. Although the book maintained a PG rating throughout, the romance was pretty steamy. Not so much in a physical sense, but in an emotional one. There was a lot of chemistry! The writer was very skillful at making the couple interesting.
I also liked the departure from the typical vampire/werewolf characters that many other UF novels use. I would have liked a stronger supernatural element in the few few chapters of the book, but after the midway point, the UF characteristics become very clear.
One thing that didn't work for me quite as well, however, was the plot. It wasn't that the plot was bad (in fact, it was very compelling), but the pieces didn't quite fit together as smoothly as I wanted to. Without giving away any clues, I felt that the final few chapters were rather forced. There was too much in the way of surprise ending(s) without the proper structure to support them. Although the romance came together beautifully, I wasn't as comfortable with the plot(s).
Overall, though, Hush Hush was a fun read, and I look forward to enjoying the next book in the series.”

This was good. I wasn't sure what to expect going into Hush, Hush apart from it having something to do with angels. However it caught my eye at the library and I decided to borrow it.
I have got to say, I really wasn't sure about Patch. I mean, I was pretty sure he wasn't the really bad bad guy, but I didn't think he was exactly a good guy either. I liked him a bit more later on, especially after a couple of other people turned extra creepy. His story was quite interesting, and I am glad that it was revealed in glimpses to start start with, because that made it more interesting to discover, but also kept the intrigue going. I do hope his attitude changes a bit more in the next ones though, because he had a very serial-killer/rapist vibe in quite a few parts.
I enjoyed the angel mythology. It goes along with much of what has been able to be established from the bible about Lucifer and the other fallen angels who were kicked out of Heaven. I thought that the tearing off of the wings by a particular branch of angels was great. I also thought that Patch's scars from his wings was a very interesting way of explaining his wings. I could imagine that having your wings torn off would leave scars, so I thought that made sense.
I think the main plot could have been introduced a bit quicker - 300 pages in is a little slow, and yes Patch was mostly a creep until Nora figured out some of his secrets, but I still found Elliot and Jules way more creepy.
I would recommend this to older YA readers because it is kind of creepy, and there are some more adult themes in this than in a typical YA novel. Anyone who wants a change from vampires and werewolves might also like this.”
“The main character of this book is Nora Grey. She is a very studious teenager that does what she is told. She is obedient to her mother and is very smart. Her father was murdered recently and she still grieves for him. One day she finds herself drawn to a mysterious young man named patch. Even though he looks dangerous Nora can't deny their connection. She is torn between the feelings she has for him and the sense of danger that she experiences when she is with him.”Nancy Flores wrote this review Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
