My thoughts:

Hush, Hush is just an OK book for me. Patch and Nora's story seemed like an ordinary one. I was about to DNF the book but then I decided to read further because I wanted to know about Patch's history, being a fallen angel, also looking forward to that 'ancient battle' mentioned from the synopsis. Bad news, there's nothing there. The story just dragged on and on and then it abruptly ends without something more to think about. I mean, this is a series. It should give readers at least something a bit more interesting to make one anticipate the second book, right? Well, *sigh* as I said, nothing there.

Oh by the way, the story/romance felt Twilight-ish. It's probably the reason why it became popular. If you are into Twilight-ish read, pick up this book.

About the book:

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. Not until Patch came 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 who 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 way 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.

About the author:  

Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush saga, including Hush, Hush; Crescendo; Silence; and Finale, all debuted as New York Times best-sellers. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. When not writing, she's most likely prowling sale racks for reject shoes, running, or traveling.

Sad it didn't work for you. I haven't read this series yet but the makeup of the plot sounds a lot like Lauren Kate's Fallen series.
