I would definitely recommend this to any fantasy/romance fans (it is romantic while staying appropriate). The first book (if you haven't read it) is "Hush, Hush", the second is "Crescendo", the third is "Silence", and the fourth is "Finale". It was an extraordinary saga that I managed to devour in three days. I felt that each book continued to build suspense and would be worth anyone's time and money. I hope this helps!(less)

Kinda on hold right now. I just got tired of Nora trying to remember things that I already know.
Hush, Hush made me fall hard. Crescendo has taken my breath away and I cannot wait till Tempest. Becca Fitzpatrick is a true story teller, and I don’t want her to ever end Nora and Patches adventures.

Interview with Becca Fitzpatrick

Haleema: How are you? *cough-not-that-I-give-a-damn-cough*.
Fitzpatrick: I'm TEERRRIIIFFIICCC!! I just finished the best book I ever wrote! ZOMG!!!
Haleema: Really? Because it was sheer crap to me.
Fitzpatrick: You didn't like Jev/Patch?!
Haleema: What in the hell were you thinking, woman?

The rest of the interview... well let's just say there was blood.

And to think i was excited for the second book.

A third book? Yay?

I <3 Patch.

Cannot wait, Fall 2011 is just too far away.
The summary for this book is ridiculous. How can she get more drawn to Patch? This is like a bad teen soap opera.

EW! What a shit cover!

I'll read this on one condition: Vee dies in a quick and violent death.

LOL jk, I'll read it either way. I can't wait for it!
Buuuuuuut, I still wouldn't mind Vee dying...
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

OH MY GOD! This was amazing!

After reading Crescendo and being left with the world's worst cliffhanger, I dreaded having to wait a year for the final book of the series. But as Friday came along and I FINALLY snagged my copy, a few interesting things happened.

1) I learned that there was going to be a FOURTH BOOK! IT CONTINUES! MORE PATCH! XDDD

2) I finally read the synopsis. For a whole year I did not even click on the page of Silence. No idea why.

3) My eternal love for Patch grew tenfold. Nuff s

i can't wait for this book i loooooved hush hush, i sooo fell in love with patch, read crescendo but i have to say i was a little disappointed with nora, she gets pushed around way to much and she just takes it, i read crecendo and finished it within 2 days and i love the way B. Fitzpatrick always make you think that you know exactly what gonna happen and then she turns the book upside down, its great!

im looking farward to this book but also looking farward to nora growing some balls and sticki

Silence can be summed up in one meme:

Bad Decision #1

Upon waking up in a graveyard with no memory of how she got there or what had transpired, Nora kicks the shin of the first person who tries to help her and blunders away, possibly increasing the chances of running into her captors.

Now normally, this a very sound reaction and fits in with Stranger Danger, but this is Nora we're talking about. She'd suspect the toaster of doing her in if it burned her toast.

Bad Decision #36

I will give this to Fitzpatz: She's so reliably bad that I've never been the least bit interested in reading the sequels to Hush, Hush.


Let's clear some shit up.

That is a Silent, and if one of them makes Patch and Nora explode I may read this book after all.

Not fair at all!
That's like a whole freaking year!

"I'm a guy. That's like asking a kid not to glance at the candy counter.”

Oh, yeah, because, hell, why expect guys not to peep at you while you're changing? That's just ridiculous. They're like children, you see. And you're like candy for him. They can't help themselves, don't be stupid. THEY R MENZZ. DUHHHH.

Ahhhh, don't you just love it when your half-angel/sexual predator/douchebag as well as your part time boyfriend takes you in your arms and is about to throw you into a tempestuous ocean during a storm while he wears fake wings like gender-bended Tinkerbell while your hair fans out as if you are in a Pantene advert? Oh the memories still make me weak at the knees(!) :')

Read this entire book on my recent trip to Tampa. Still liking Patch a lot. Love the idea of the angel feather. Wasn't prepared for some of the things going on. Surprises around every corner. The cover is brilliant. Sometimes I like to just stare at it.

― Becca Fitzpatrick, Silence

NOTE: I understand how hard it is to read criticisms of your work; something you've put your heart and soul into to write, and then publish. And I understand why you, Becca Fitzpatrick, did that whole "be nice" thing. In a way, it makes sense to take the author's emotions into account. I bet that any author would be obsessively searching for critiques of their books day in and day out, and can imagine the b

*Update* HOLYFUDGSICLE!! I was wrong. The cover isn't totally awesome. IT'S BREATHTAKINGLY EPIC! I need this book NOW. Ugh...

Patch is possibly the sexiest guy ever written in YA... maybe the sexiest guy ever written, period. That didn't really change over this series, though I have to admit, in Silence Patch never *quite* reached the pinnacle he hit in Hush, Hush. (Not that said pinnacle would be simple to repeat. And honestly, could we really handle it if it was repeated over and over? Okay, NVM, yes, I think we could.)

In Crescendo, he seemed a little too good at ignoring Nora for most of the book. It hurt my feeling

Ta autorka si při psaní knihy asi vařila nějaké houbičky, jinak opravdu nevím, neskutečné blbosti tam proplétala. Spoustu věcí by bylo třeba vystříhat... dočetla jsem a dostala parádní záchvat smíchu :D

5 Angelic Stars!

I loved the book however; I was disappointed in the author’s lack of recall for her own series. It shocks me how Patch went from a man whose face was dark as a Spaniards in the prologue to hush, hush and now in book three (Silence), his skin tone magically lightened and now has that sun kissed look.Must be the same disease MJ suffered from when he went from black to white. Then again, she did describe Nora as a white woman and some bigots complained… who knows.

I was also confus
Tengo una relación amor-odio con este libro.

Odio a Nora más que ninguna protagonista. No se como la misma autora puede crear 2 personajes que para mi representan algo totalmente diferente. Nora es la chica más atorrante, caprichosa, egoísta, estúpida, malcriada y todos los abjetivos calificativos que podrían imaginar. EN RESUMEN: Es insoportable. Deberían darnos un premio por aguantarnosla. Es solo el amor a Patch y a la historia en sí por la que uno continua leyendo.

Solo quiero... ghgjhgjhgj
Ugh. This book was honestly terrible. I feel like Becca is trying too hard to meet the obligations of her contract and the result is a poor storyline and a ridiculous heroine. I can't stand a stupid leading lady...
Quick review for a not so quick, and somewhat belated read. Originally, I had this as one of ten titles I wanted to read from my not-my-cuppa shelf in 2013, but it ended up getting pushed back since I had so many other reads on my plate to tackle. I don't know if stepping away from this series for a time helped, but this didn't come across as painful as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, it left me rolling my eyes and annoyed the ever loving crumb out of me, but "Silence" did hold my att ...more

“I love you.” His voice was straightforward, affectionate. “You make me remember who I used to be. You make me want to be that man again. Right now, holding you, I feel like we have a shot at beating all odds and making it together. I’m yours, if you’ll have me.”

I'm melting, this is seriously cute as fuck. I loved this book. You won't see it coming, there's something about this book that made me love this series from the beginning, literally. I don't want to spoil this so I'll try making this

"Homecoming," I said, twirling. "Like?"

"Last I heard, Homecoming requires a date."

"About that," i hedged. "I'm sort of...going with Scott. We both figure a high-school dance is the last place Hank will be patrolling."

Patch smiled, but it was tight. "I take that back. If Hank wants to shoot Scott, he has my blessing.”
