Review + GIVEAWAY!: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Becca Fitzpatrick's debut novel Hush, Hush (Simon & Schuster / Oct. 13, 2009) grabbed my attention when I first saw its cover and read the synopsis back in May and WoWed it. Since then, Becca has been amazing to me, making sure that I got an ARC, which I promptly read and then raved about to her.

Becca has allowed me to share my review with you a couple months before Hush, Hush is released, which I am ecstatic to do, since I am an ardent supporter of Nora and Patch's story. And WHAT ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY?, you say? Hang on to your horses and read on to find out. I promise there aren't any spoilers. :)

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Publication date: Oct. 13, 2009 (Simon & Schuster)

Tags: YA, paranormal, angels, danger, romance

Rating: 4 out of 5

Summary

The last thing high school sophomore Nora Grey wanted was to be partnered with a total stranger in biology, especially for a section on human anatomy and sexuality. But Patch, her biology partner, is very attractive, fascinatingly intriguing…and has a way of unnerving Nora in all the ways she never wanted to be unnerved. Nora knows that Patch is dangerous, and that she should probably stay away from him—especially after she suspects him of being the masked stalker who seems to be trying to kill her—but their paths keep on crossing, and she can’t deny the connection that she feels with him.

However, Nora doesn’t know that she’s about to become a pawn in a dangerous game that may end her life. For Patch is a fallen angel, one whose wings were ripped off for disobedience. He wants to become human, and that requires a particular female sacrifice. But that’s not all. Others are also out for Nora’s blood, and against her will Nora feels that Patch might be the only one who can save her, as dangerous as he himself is for her…

Review

Look out, Edward—dark, dangerous, and sexy has a new name, and that name is Patch. Becca Fitzpatrick writes a forbidden romance that’s so delicious, so intoxicating, it should be illegal. Thankfully it’s not, and we can all be treated to the alluring and dangerous world that Nora and Patch live in.

HUSH, HUSH focuses mostly on developing Nora, Patch, and their dance of a relationship. Thus, what it sometimes lacks in pace, it more than makes up for in Patch and Nora’s fantastic dynamics. Every time they meet, you can practically see the sparks flying out of the page. All the other characters fade in comparison, but it’s okay, as Nora and Patch are exceptionally well drawn and three-dimensional. Nora, while seemingly helpless in a Bella-like way under the dark shadow of Patch’s sinister behavior, is actually quite determined and innovative, given the terrifying circumstances she has been thrust into.

Readers will either fall over themselves to get more of Patch, or be creeped out by him. He certainly exhibits a lot of the stalkerish tendencies that some readers dislike about Edward from Twilight. In addition, he is rude, condescending, cocky, sexually aggressive, and pretty darn selfish (did I mention the part where he wants to kill Nora for his own purposes?). However, I am firmly in the first camp: I adore Patch. He is the incarnation of every girl’s secret bad boy daydream: your very own otherworldly, dangerous, drop-dead sexy, decidedly masculine fantasy come true. Whenever Patch shows up in HUSH, HUSH, you’ll want to sweat—partly from attraction, partly from fear. It’s easy to understand why Nora feels the way she does about him, even if the romance between the two feels the tiniest bit rushed and uneven to me.

Nora and Patch aside, the rest of HUSH, HUSH was a decent exploration of a different world, one where fallen angels roam among us. The story doesn’t really pick up the pace until the last third or so of the novel, where we learn about Patch’s past as well as the story of the fallen angels, Nora and Patch’s building attraction finally comes to a head, and mortal danger awaits. Indeed, the final part of the book was so delicious and action-packed that I had to reread it again and again, never getting enough each time. This fallen angel world that Becca Fitzpatrick has created is one that I will gladly step into again, even if it’s not for the continuation of Patch and Nora’s story.

All in all, HUSH, HUSH is an edgier read that will appeal to more mature fans of Twilight and the Mortal Instruments series. Becca Fitzpatrick is an absolute star at creating fantastic main characters: the attraction between Nora and Patch is sure to break thermometers. This one’s a keeper on my shelf for sure, so that I can reread it whenever I need a rush of danger and impossible desire. Can’t wait to see what Becca has to show us next!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5

Cover discussion: 5 out of 5 - By far the best cover all this year. The grays that turn to blood red on the feathers, the lighting, the model's posture all add up to a sensuous and deeply appropriate cover. Many kudos to James Porto for a pretty much perfect cover.

Thank you, Becca and S&S, for offering me an ARC to read and review!

  76. The simple reason is that I haven't read any YA books in a while and it's just about time to read one! Plus, this sounds really good!

  89. I want this book because I've gotten to read the first two chapters and I've been hooked ever since. Plus, I need something other than sparkly vampires and werewolves to sink my teeth into. Hush, Hush has gotten lovely reviews, it's sexy and dangerous, which is exactly the kind of book I really need and want to read.

  95. Hmm, quite interesting. Me wants this book. But I'm a bit miffed of Nora's "helpless Bella-like ways" - if she's like that then I'm gonna be forcing myself to finish the book if her, erhm, attitude is anything like Bella's "attraction" to Edward. (I hated that) But the fallen angels bit got me.

    Honestly, I'd not heard of this book until I came across your review and giveaway, and your review made it sound so delicious and a fun read that I have got to have it lol
    ps - I would have LOVED sitting by Patch when I was young hahaha (of course, I would have probably dropped my books everyday and had a permanent blush going on and he would have got up and moved to a NEW DESK lol) Oh Well ... it's fun to imagine :)

  98. Why do you want to read this book?
    First of all, that cover!! Book covers are a huge deal for me, I often choose my next reads based on that. But, of course, it doesn't take a simple cover to make me so eager for a book like I'm with this one, and that's because the synopsys also is amazing and simply makes you want to grab that book and go to youe bed and only get up when you're done lol

  99. I'm always up for a good paranormal tale. And I've got a couple of high school kids (I'm a volunteer youth leader) who also enjoy these types of stories. We recommend and pass books back and forth. With the school year starting up again, I've been looking for some easier, more YA, novels. Something to give the kids a break from the rigors of school. This book sounds like it would be great.

  100. I heard about Hush Hush on a friend's blog. I actually have a link already set up abou this book in tomorrow's blog post on one of my blogs. The book got my attention first of all because of all the excitement about it. It's hard not to fall into that. But I've been through this a few times, and I wasn't going to get my hopes up. Great cover and excited pre-readers do NOT always mean great book.

    And then I read the prologue...which had me with a shrug and an "Eh". However! Chapter 1? And then Chapter 2? I'm...GADS!!!!!!!!! What a freakin' TEASE! This book sounds frelling AWESOME!

I have a friend in Spain, and she told me wonderful things and now i'm just expectant, can't wait! Patch is a bad-boy, sexy and enigmatic caracter,different from Edward Cullen(bless God!) and the cover is THE COVER!! Plus your review made it sound even more AWESOME (it is posible??)!

  148. I want to read it because this book sounds amazing. I don't mean that in the "OMG TWILIGHT! IT'S LIKE TWILIGHT! MUSTHAVEITNOW!" I loved the mortal instruments (easily my all time favorite series) and I like the idea of stories playing around with fallen angels (like in blue bloods) - so it'd be neat to see how this book takes a legend and makes it it's own.

    Not to mention that since it is so much like the basic idea of Twilight (mysterious guy who wants to kill girl but loves her), I'm curious if I can get into it as it's own book or if I'd keep being reminded of Twilight. So many books have almost been ruined for me because it's the typical "mysterious guy or shy girl moves, but they end up falling in love despite their troubles and live happily ever after". I'm interested in how this book will do it & make it it's own.

  164. PLLLLLEEEEEEEAAAAAASSSSSSEEEEE RRRREEEEEEAAAAAAADDDDDDDD!!!!!

    Okay so here it goes:

    You should pick me for the ARC of Hush, Hush, because I am extremely passionate about reading! Not only am I obssesed with NEW authors; I love it when an author takes risks with their writing! Becca chose to write about a topic that you rarely see in the YA section. Hush, Hush IMMEDIATELY attracted me when I first saw the cover and the reviews I have read recently have assured my expectations for this debut novel.
    A fresh, creative mind is what novels need now a days. With all the twilight hype, Hush, Hush will surely be a huge hit!!
    So, PLEASE!!! pick me for an ARC of HUSH, HUSH!!!!.

    And also... :P my mom wants me to add, that she would be very happy if you chose me, so she can read it as well!!! If you pick me, this copy will be in the most grateful hands! Thanks.

  165. I saw the cover of this on pulse it and I thought it was incredible, and then I read the synopsis and thought the cover had nothing compared to what it would be on the inside! :)

  168. I want to read this book because it's origional. i've never heard of anything like this before, it sounds creative. good writing and creativity is lacking in a lot of YA novels, a lot of it is just repeat stuff that has branched off of Twilight or Harry Potter (seriously. and it stinks)
    this sounds COOL.

  171. I read the summary of this book a while ago and have been counting down to the release. I can't wait. I also just saw the book trailer yesterday and it made me want to read it even more. It seems like a new unique story in the supernatural/fantasy genre. I'm dying to read this book. Ahhh. It just looks so good.

  173. I don't know for how long I've been waiting to read this book, all the reviews and even the trailer seems amazing! ...and your review just sarting by comparing the main character to Edward!...Do I need any more reasons? I can say that Hush hush is going to bring a feeling of fresh air to the whole "Vampires stories" and besides of course a beautiful cover

    I would -love- to read this book because:
    (a) The cover art is enough alone to make me read the book. (and skip the blurb on the back)
    (b) Romance, fallen angels, and near-death experiences promises to be interesting!

  176. The cover is what first draw me in - I just LOVE it, it's gorgeous. Then I actually read what it was about - another huge tick of approval. The dark, forbidden, dangerous romance and the fallen angel aspect had me quickly typing into google to find an excerpt. I read the first two chapters and now it's not by choice, it's simply by need - if I don't read the rest of it soon I will implode!

  177. Why do you want to read this book?
    First of all, because of the cover. It's simply stunning, and drawn my attention. Then, when I got the chance to read the summary and the first chapter, I fell head over heels over this book. Cannot wait to have it in my hands!

  190. Hello ^_^. I have been curious about Hush, Hush ever since I first saw the cover. And I have wanted to read it since I read the synopsis. I've added it to my amazon wish list, have entered contests to win ARCs when I can (no luck yet) and have mentioned the book to all of my book loving friends and after I have read your review I just want to read it more ^_^.

    I want to read Hush, Hush because I love stories about forbidden loves, fallen angels have always caught my eye, and fantasy will always be a love of mine.

    I have just started following your blog and I am already following Becca on Twitter. I am SilverSparrow04 on there.
