Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2)
Popular Answered Questions
I edited this review just a bit. It's an old review but I think I could have worded some things a little better.
There were many Paranormal YA series where I couldn't possibly continue reading after the first book, but the Hush, Hush series is special. Despite the fact that yes, it is merely another abuse-glorifying panty-wetter, the unintentional hilarity just makes the books so much fun to read (in a twisted masochistic kinda way).
Crescendo is like a bright shining star of heav ...more
Yeah, you. Right there. Patch Cipriano? Hey there. Hi.
I will not read any more of this garbage.
Of course, the idea of a forbidden-ish love story will always remind us of You-Know-What, but i'm seriously saying that this book is addictive enough for it to be a crime to compare it twilight. It has its own characters and instead of VAMPIRES, its about ANGELS and that makes me happy because angels are as cool, or even more so, than vampires. And yes I have a fet ...more
Also: pretend I'm reading this out loud to you, while I'm barely able to remember what they taught me in my anger management classes, and with a voice that's a few notches above normal volume. There's also some foaming at the mouth and a very, very strained and scary smile on my face.
*clears throat* Here goes...

Just read it, in a day.
I cannot describe how much i adore it though, i have to say its my favourite one i've ever read.
Got this off amazon yesterday, and i started reading and was hooked,
i had to go out that night, and slept out and all i could think about was the book, it was that capturing. I started reading it this morning and finished this afternoon.
A Billion times better than hush hush, the author did an amazing job,
can't wait for the next one, what a c ...more
This book is a classic example of a horrible imitation of Twilight, Evermore and City of Bones .
Add some cliches, one-dimensional hot guy, annoying, whiny, suicidal, boring, petty, clingy, stalkerish, slutty, stupid female heroine Nora Grey aka The New Bella Swan , with a pinch of Anti-Feminism and damn add that gorgeou ...more
Thank you. I'm feeling better now.
I’ve spent the last 8 hours literally gulping down this book. My fingernails are bitten down, my eyes are red-rimmed, my hair is all tousled because I kept pulling it...basically, I look like a lunatic.
Well, that Nora’s acting beyond stupid in this book has already been established by several of the bookers so I will not waste my breath on this and get all worked up again. I’ve thrown my b ...more
As for Nora and her need to question and doubt everything anyone does, especially Patch, this is my answer to her...........
Its a good book, and I will read the next one, but, well, I think the pictures have made my POV very clear.
At this moment in time, I will write a very simple review (numbered of course):
1. I threw this book a few times. I have the photos to prove it.
2. The novel also spent some time in the Time Out corner for misbehaving. (Can you expect anything less from a book with Patch in it?)
3. Speaking of Patch: More pleeeeeeeease.
4. Nora. Dude. Chi ...more

Long review: I found myself frustrated most of the novel with the lack of recapping. It hasn't been that long since I read Hush, Hush, so I remember the characters, but what I couldn't remember was these assumptions Fitzpatrick jumped to in her angel lore. I remember not quite buying into it, and that could be part of the problem, but whenever Nora ...more
Reading this book is the equivalent to listening to Vogon poetry. It may not liquify your brain (not yet anyways. Give it another two books), but it will lead to a massive decrease in brain cells.
First off, the plot.
Hold on a sec. Plot? What plot?
Crescendo is not so much a story about hostile archangels and the opposing Nephilim than it is about a girl breaking up with her boyfriend and immediately wants him back.
And let's not forget the slutty bitch that he gets toget ...more
1. I couldn't get even remotely into this until about page 200
and that's not good.
2.The Patch Marcie Patch Norah triangle got OLD quickly!
3. The Rixon bad guy thing was predictable
4. Vee gets on my nerves
5. I don't think I like the direction book #3 is going to take
6. I almost feel like I am reading a Completely different series that what Hush, Hush.. It doesn't even feel like they go together.. to a point.
7. The Scott giving Norah a car at the end was far-fet ...more
Honestly I am strictly Vampire 'Romance' type of girl... (no not twilight, Sookie Stackhouse, Morganville, Anita Blake, etc) untill I came upon two books. Fallen... and Hush Hush. ...more
I really can't wait!!!- DYING TO READ IT...
Hush HUsh is my fav book in the world-
and I will do anything for it.
It is my life, my destiny, and really my everything.
Though I don't get the Marcie Millar part (my 6th sense tellin me that itz a distraction) I am looking forward to the father's past.
I love u!! (talkin 2 the book)
*throws book across room*
*lights it on fire*
*rips Nora out of the book*
*lights her on fire*
*lights everything on fire*
HOW CAN I EXPRESS MY HATRED THROUGH TEXT? BOLD SEEMS LIKE THE ANSWER.
First off, Becca, you have completely f**** up with making these characters, holy crap. I have the feeling you hate the entire female population because of how incredibly stupid and irritating you made Nora. Name one positive quality of Nora. I'LL JUST STOP YOU RIGHT THERE BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE.
Hablando de Nora, en este libro se vuelve totalmente infumable, insoportable. Se que algunas de sus acciones son justificadas, pero joder, a veces dan ganas de mat ...more
Review *major spoilers*
Oh my evil chiffy! Me thinks that Fitzpatrick has been kidnapped by devious Nephilims as evident by how she left me hanging at the end!
I can't quite identify what it is about this series that has me feeling at odds, but I think it is time for me to admit that I'm in an unhealthy love/hate relationship with these books. My thoughts are all over the place. On one hand, I want to praise, on the other, I want rant. The one sure thing I ...more
OH.MY.GOD. I was so unprepared for this plot twist. I must admit that there's literally nothing that i didn't like about this book. It was brilliantly written and kept me interested the whole time! This book was better than the first one, if it's even possible! I have only one word to describe it: flawless. Going to read the third as soon as possible.
“You're a psychopath."
"I prefer creative.”
I might actually be. This was truly amazing but I think there was something missing, maybe the plot was unfolding too slow for my liking? But oh boy, it did in the end and I loved it so much. In this one we see the problems of the relationship between an angel and a human girl, pretty messed up if you want my opinion.
Nora is kind of sensing there is something wrong with Patch, he's not saying some words he is supposed to, when she's already told him. ...more
You know who's really annoying though? Nora. Damn I need to slap that woman ten million times until her face gets a new one. Like, seriously? Since this book is in first pov you just can't escape her overly dramatic and melodramatic thoughts that are super ridiculous. First, her and Patch have this huge fight and break up over something really stupid. Then just two minutes later she's all "omg, I want to take my words back" and is all bawling and sad but you kn ...more
