I want to take a moment to thank each of you for your amazing support for the Hush, Hush movie. Your love and passion for this project are humbling! With that said, I have some movie news to share. Unfortunately it may not be the news you've been waiting to hear. I have decided that now is not the right time to move forward with the Hush, Hush movie and have not renewed the movie option with LD Entertainment. I know many of you will be disappointed by this. But I hope that you trust me to make the right decision for Nora and Patch. I'm not saying the movie will never happen, but it won’t be moving forward at this time.

Hush, Hush is the story of Nora Grey, an average high school student going about her business as usual -- until her Biology teacher rearranges the class seating and places her next to the dangerous-looking new kid, Patch Cipriano. Nora gets a weird feeling from Patch, and things just keep going from bad to worse as Nora becomes convinced that she is being stalked, and may even be the target of murderous intentions. Add to the list Nora's strange feelings about the ...more
First, that Hush, Hush was, without a doubt, one of the worst Twilight rip-offs I've ever had the misfortune to read.
Second, there was a part of me -- and I didn't realize how dominant that part actually was -- that insisted on reading Hush, Hush to the bitter end in the hope it would redeem itself.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably wrong in that decision.
*This post was inspired by the fantastic videos over at www.howitshouldhaveended.com. Italicized text is the original publicized text from the book and is entirely the work of Becca Fitzpatrick.
This rendition is entirely satire. It is not meant to offend and I mean no discourtesy. I recognize that authors put a lot of time and work into their novels and I am not trying to disrespect that. Writing a novel is hard work and is something I have never done ...more
Nora’s sex ed class begins with the teacher stating, “Human reproduction…requires mature handling. And like all science, the best approach is to learn by sleuthing. For the rest of the class, practice this technique by finding out as much as you can about your new (seating assignment) partner. Tomorrow, bring your write-up of your discoveries, and believe me, I’m going to check for authenticity…I want to see real interaction and teamwork.” This is a biolog ...more
I read this ON A DARE (a double-dog one, if you must know). And now I want to look it in the eye and ask - REALLY, BOOK? REALLY? Because it doesn't just cross the line into the uncomfortably creepy territory - it takes a cosmic leap over it.
Hush, Hush may have the dubious distinction of being the worst book I've ever read. (I assumed it's a book since that's what you'd call a bunch of printed and bound pages, but I'm really applying the term 'book' loosely here). Yes, I know I'm not the intended ...more
You guessed it. This is a dream story.
Now, I rarely remember my dreams. But last night's was so freaking pungent that I can reel it all off right now without missing any details. Also, bear in mind ...more
*UHHUM* WHY IS IT THAT ALL I SEE ARE NEGATIVE REVIEWS OF THIS BOOK? REALLY? REALLY? ARE WE EVEN READING THE SAME HUSH HUSH?
I fell in love with Patch INSTANTLY I mean what's not to love?
I also love Nora- She is such a refreshing and intriguing heroin. Her and Patch suit each other perfectly. They bounce off each other and really made me laugh with their witty and sarcy sense of humour! They bicker like hell and it's so much fun to read.
I loved the twist in the end, it turned everything I though ...more
I won't lie, my expectations going in about this book were pretty low. But even so, "Hush, Hush" managed to disappoint me.
First, there are many similarities with "Twilight" - you have a regular average girl here, absent parents, a love affair with a dangerous supernatural boyfriend, a final showdown with a villain of his own kind. The mythology, while somewhat unusual (I haven't read anything about fallen angels in YA so far), is paper thin. The characters are shal ...more
"If you don’t like me, I’ll force myself on you until you do. We see this all the time and it’s even romanticized. Everything from romance novels to sitcoms we see women who aren’t interested in a man and we see those men determined to catch her. To pursue her, to convince her that she’ll like me eventually. If I try hard enough, if I harass her long enough... she’s sure to cave in eventually. She can’t say no. And if she does I’ll just assume it’s code for “tr ...more
Even though this book has been lumped into the YA category, it definitely felt more like an adult-minded para romance to me.
I love a good vampire story as much as the next para-junkie, but I have to say I now have a major weakness for fallen angels as well.
While I can understand some people making comparisons between this book and Twilight (dark, brooding hero, and a heroine who, against her better judgment, can't keep herself from being drawn into the hero's mysterious world). But, i ...more
Well, forty nine, I suppose, since I use the little white backing thing too. They're quite nice sticky notes, designed not to be written on but as bookmarks; at some year in the past they magically appeared in my Christmas stocking, and I haven't really used them since. I suspect there were originally fifty, so I've used two elsewhere.
Anyhow. Forty nine sticky notes was what I started with when I commenced reading Hush, Hush a little after 9 AM on August 25.

If I ever met Nora Grey in person (God help me if I do, I may beat her bloody), and if I could sense auras, her's would be a dark murky brown. According to the Internetz, a brown aura mea ...more
Hush, Hush is one of those addicting reads. There is something about it, you can't quite place your finger on it, but all you know is that you need more, right now!
Most surprising for me was liking Nora. Usually I can't stand her type of character. But for some reason she reminded me of my sister! Completely book smart, but doesn't have the common sense that god gave a goose. (Yes, Lace, I'm talking about you!) Patch on the other hand, where do I even start. ...more
Edit: Here's a more err professional review.
After reading the first two chapters on the Simon & Schuster website, I knew I would love this book. And sure enough, I did. It's not like this topic hasn't been done before, forbidden romance. However Becca has written a novel with the same idea but the writing is exceptional. Reading Hush Hush was like riding a roller coaster, the ...more
Leaving my house around 6:25pm, I headed out the door and I thought, just my luck on one of the most important days of my life, it’s raining cats and dogs.
I hopped into my car and raced to my appointment in hopes of not being late. I finally arrived at the building with 3 minutes to spare. I jumped out my car without grabbing an umbrella and jogged to the entrance. As I’m wal ...more
Nora Gray is the typical over-achieving high school girl in the sense that she aims to go Yale, has a best friend, and has a somew ...more
The half is there for the sole reason that Hush, Hush did not irk me as much as Halo did. I’m a little confused by that but whatevs.
No, this is not a good wow.
This is a “Holy shit, you really did that didn’t you? I can’t fucking believe that” kind of wow.
A wow that just destroys my very soul and forces me to wonder WHY someone could possibly like a book such as this. But don’t worry, I have an explanation as to why someone could enjoy these honey bunches of pages because I ...more

I read this book with a very open mind.
It was so open, in fact, that whatever went in simply found its way back out.
I did that so I wouldn't have to think too much about the contents of this book. For my brain, you know.
There were a few things that stayed in there for a bit longer than I would've liked.
Ugh, I hate them.
That's all I really wanted to say for the review, but then I found a few things in my notes -- not ...more
So why do I keep coming back? I don't know. I suppose there's some entertainment to be had, and if you want to write a book of your own some day, it shows you all the hallmarks of bad writing and clichés to avoid. This is going to be the last book I read this year that has a bad reputation, because ...more
The relationship between Nora and Patch is toxic, but the strange thing is that Nora knows this and yet is still being pushed into being sexually attracted to him. Unli ...more
I read this mostly because of the gorgeous cover, and because the premise seemed intriguing. What happened was that it ended up being the worst book I've ever read. I could expound on the rambling prose (I myself am guilty of that time to time). I could rant about how annoying the detailed descriptions of tedious things (authors, please do not describe in minute detail what your characters are w ...more
I mean, I heard so much about Hush,Hush being the next Twilight phenomenon...but what phenomenal for me was that I keep grunting and rolling my eyes constantly over 486 pages!
Reading Twilight, I felt tingles of guilty pleasure and butterflies in my stomach all the way through the end. I can't stand Bella but at least I know what she wants. She wants to die and be a vampire like Edward. And be stubbornly annoying in the process...
With Nora, I r ...more
Hush, hush by Becca FAILSpatrick is the stupidest book I have ever read. The most horrifying Twilight rip-off I've ever seen on a bookshelf. Horrifying because of the glorified BAD, fucking ABUSIVE romance.
The characters were all idiots. Especially Nora. Nora is the kind of character that wouldn't be able to tell that yes, it might be a bad thing if you ...more
The first half of the book was all build up yet provided you with NO information. You have a couple of teenagers, a small love triangle, some possible supernatural occurrences ...more
