bookshelves: first-in-series
Recommended for: teens in general.
read count: 1

After reading Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series, I am now required to lower the rating to Hush, Hush. Not that Silence is very great either (maybe one half of the star I lowered was because of the sheer dumbassery going on in the 3rd book? Could be).

Quotes Nina ♥ Liked

Becca Fitzpatrick
“You smell good, too,” said Patch

It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways. “Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.”

Naked. I know the drill.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

Becca Fitzpatrick
“Say 'provoking' again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do.”

“Hang on, did you just call me Angel?" I asked.
"If I did?"
"I don't like it."
He grinned. "It stays, Angel.”

“You possess other people's...bodies."

He accepted that statement with a nod.

"Do you want to possess my body?"

"I want to do a lot of things to your body, but that's not one of them.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

Becca Fitzpatrick
“You're a guardian angel now." I was still too much in awe to wrap my mind around it, but at the same time I felt amazement, curiosity...happiness.

"I'm your guardian angel," he said.

"I get my very own guardian angel? What, exactly, is your job description?"

"Guard your body." His smile tipped higher. "I take my job seriously, which means I'm going to need to get acquainted with the subject matter on a personal level.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

“If you can't feel, why did you kiss me?"
Patch traced a finger along my collarbone, then headed south stopping at my heart. I felt it pounding through my skin. "Because I feel it here, in my heart," he said quietly.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

“Coach: "All right, Patch. let's say you're at a party. the room is full of girls of all shapes and sizes. You see blondes, brunettes, redheads, a few girl with black hair. Some are talkive, while other appear shy. You've one girl who fits your profile - attractive, intelligent and vulnerable. Dow do you let her know you're interested?"

Patch: "Single her out. Talk to her."

Coach: "Good. Now for the big question - how do you know if she's game or if she wants you to move on?"

Patch: "I study her. I figure out what she's thinking and feeling. She's not gonig to come right out and tell me, which is why i have to pay attention. Does she turn her body toward mine? Does she hold me eyes, then look away? Does she bite her lip and play with her hair, the way Nora is doing right now?”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

Good thing she hadn't seen her bedroom yet.”

“What was up with class today? It was watered-down porn. He practically had you and Patch on top of your lab table, horizontal, minus your clothes, doing the Big Deed.”

“But if I hadn't fallen, I wouldn't have met you.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

“I called Vee.
"How are you doing?" I asked.
"Good. How are you?"
"Good."
Silence.
"Okay," Vee said in a rush, "I am still totally freaked out. You?"
"Totally.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

Becca Fitzpatrick
“Let’s be honest, Nora. You’ve got it bad for me." His eyes held a lot of depth. "And I’ve got it bad for you.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush

Thanks, Nina!

Yeah, she was super-cool in the first half of the book and really annoying in the other half. Like, unbelievable. I mean, Nora told her what Elliot did to her and she didn't even care!


Nina Ivashkov/Ozera/Wayland yeah.. its was annoying she should of taken been a bit more cautious around them after hearing what had happend.
