Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems 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 she 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 Nora her life

It has taken me awhile but, I have finally finished a book and I wish I could scream it from the mountain top that it was amazing and awesome and everything that would pull me out of my reading slump however, I can’t. It was okay. That’s the only word that I can describe Hush, Hush as. I will be reading the other books in the series since I have them but, I hope that they aren’t as slow an action-less as the first book is.

Nora is the main girl here and she is dealing with a father that was murdered and a mother that travels a lot for her job so she’s alone a lot of the time. Enter boys…a few of them. Of course you have Patch who is the main guy but he’s the “bad boy” who is mysterious and new to the school. He’s very cocky and confident as they usually are and Nora seems to be attracted to him even though she doesn’t want to be. You see, Patch is the fallen angel but he’s not the only one that’s hanging around Nora.

They have their homework and have to meet each other which has some flirting here and there which I have to say was quite awkward at times. The book went slow, the information really didn’t released until towards the end and even then it was kind of lacking to me. The guy that Nora suspects is doing everything to her, of course is also a new student and an obvious choice.

I have to admit that I have never read any books with fallen angels and all that because paranormal isn’t really my thing. I have seen really good reviews of this and the cover is gorgeous so when I saw them in the thrift store, the whole series at that, I figured I’d give a read. Am I disappointed that I read it? No, but I won’t really be recommending it as a top pick.

Nora lacked real personality. Vee seemed very boy crazy. Patch was entirely too cocky and mysterious. I guess you could say my main problem was mostly of the characters personalities.

Where the heck…

Oh man, these are posts that I despise but I think it’s warranted this time. I mean, it’s been awhile since my last book review hasn’t it? Well, I haven’t stopped reading. I have just been reading Game of Thrones and we all know that’s a pretty long book. Put that in with having moved in mid-September and then getting things done for the kid, I haven’t had much reading time to blaze through books.

I do feel horrible because I have quite a few books that I need to review and a lot of those books have already been released so I’m seriously sorry to those authors, I am still planning on reviewing them just…life. Everyone knows how it is.

I have gotten books also, I just haven’t posted about them. I could have had updates up here.


Like those! I got that whole series from the thrift store (opp shop) and it’s still sitting there waiting to be read because I’m loving Game of Thrones. I have the rest of the series as well but I think I’ll read a couple other books in between. So, I’ve not stopped book blogging, I just need to find more stuff to talk about in between reading a huge long book that’s taking me two months to finish! With the upcoming holiday season I don’t know that it’ll get better!

I will be refreshing the layout soon enough. When I get time…might just be a header and color changes though. There may just be more personal/non-book related posts too. Who knows! The book reviews will come though.


Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang


Falling into Place has a lot of fantastic reviews going for it and some sprinkling of bad ones on Goodreads. I was pretty excited to start this book and was expecting an If I Stay like feel to it, which you do get. However, I will say right now that Falling into Place does not […]

Review: Blackbird by Anna Carey

September 16th 2014

The synopsis of this book and the cover caught my eye when I looked at the review copy on Edelweiss. Then when I finally was going to read it, I read a lot of mixed reviews. A little skeptical going into it, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t start out with good thoughts though as […]
