Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush Saga)

Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick After reading some amazing reviews of this book, I was squeeing (is that a word?) with delight when I received this book from the Barnes and Noble First Look Book Club. Word in the blogging community is that Becca Fitzpatrick's debut novel is going to take the YA community by storm, and I have to say that I am going to agree with this hype. Move over Stephenie Meyer, there is a new queen bee in town.Hush, Hush is an exciting, sexy, alluring debut novel featuring what is sure to be the next big swoon-worthy male character. For all you Twilight fans, this is a book that will leaving you asking Edward who? Patch is the kind of man that any girl would go out of her way to have. He is one of the most sexy, fascinating, and infuriating characters I have met in a long time. If you read this book, you will know what I am talking about. The only down side to Patch is that his intensity can be a little overpowering, and sometimes even creepy. But I am willing to overlook this small issue.While there are some similarities to Twilight, (they get to know each other in a science class, Patch is a mysterious character who tends to stalk the lead female character), they are superficial at best. But what is actually more importantly is that they work for the novel. Instead of feeling like the author is a copy cat, the reader feels like there is no other way this book could have been written. And like many elements of this wonderfully written novel, it just fits so perfectly.I have very few complaints for this novel. The book is wonderfully well written. It is extremely fast paced, and keeps the readers attention. I adore Patch and Nora. They are a great ying and yang couple. I just wish that there was a little more romance between them, and less sexual tension. (It felt kinda like it went from ooh, you are attractive- you are interesting/frustrating- want to get to know you more- think I may like you, but I don't want to- sexual tension- I love you.) There are also more than enough twists, turns, and suspense to keep any reader interested. Though you may need to be careful reading the last 3rd of the book, there is just SO much going on. While it is not a bad thing, it would have been nice to have some of the mystery unfold earlier in the novel so that the reader is not overwhelmed at the end.All in all, this is a great read. And I am looking forward to many more from this amazing debut writer. Any fan of Twilight or paranormal romance will be sure to fall in love with Hush, Hush. This book will not let you down.
