Hush, Hush a Good Read

Since discovering Twilight a couple of years ago I have delved into the Young Adult section at the bookstore. I have always loved fantasy/scifi stories with romance and the young adult section is loaded with them. Who knew?

I received a Borders gift card for Christmas from a friend who knows how much I love to read so I picked up a couple of books that sounded interesting. One of them was Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. The cover was beautiful and caught my eye. The story has to do with fallen angels. The main girl in the book Nora has suddenly been given a new chemistry partner, Patch, and she is drawn to him and he seems to be to her as well. He appears to be a sort of bad boy. Strange things begin to happen and that's where things get interesting. Will Patch help her or is he the cause?

I found the book to be a very quick read with an interesting story to tell. I cared about all the characters even the one with minor rolls. I look forward to reading the next book as this is the first in a new series. Thank God. I want more. It's always a good sign when I finish the book and I'm invested in the characters and I feel like I'm invested. I want to know what happens next. Now as for my 12 year old I would let her read this book. I find nothing offensive about the story. I think she'll enjoy it. Everyone needs to escape with a good book once in a while. This is definitely a good book and worth anyone's time. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Have you tried reading Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater? I think you'll like it if you're a fan of YA paranormal romance. :)
