YOA well...on 8/27/18 I saw that they said they are going to make one that stars Wolfgang Novogratz (Patch) and Liana Liberato (Nora) *squeals*

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.
This book sucked and I need to write better reviews.

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.

“If I lose you, I lose everything.”

Oh my god!! I loved it!! Nora wasn't so annoying (amnesia did something good :P)
And I will tell again and again and again I LOVE PATCH!!!!!!

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

The summary for this book is ridiculous. How can she get more drawn to Patch? This is like a bad teen soap opera.

And to think i was excited for the second book.

A third book? Yay?

I <3 Patch.

“I would lay down everything I possess, even my soul, for you.
If that isn't love, it's the best I have.”

The book in which Nora is tortured, forgets the most significant months of her life and more importantly she forgets Patch. And then she bounces back and she fights.
Because how can she forget Patch for long?

They will meet in dreams.
He will save her.
She will chase him.
She will remember his eyes.
He cannot hide.
He will tell her the truth.

Silence (Hush, Hush #3), Becca Fitzpatrick
Silence is the third book in the Hush, Hush saga, published: October 4, 2011. The book starts with Hank making a deal with Patch: if Hank returns Nora by the end of summer, Patch will relinquish his wings. Five months later, Nora wakes up within a graveyard to discover that her mother is now dating Hank Millar. She has no memory of Patch but has moments of deja vu when she hears his name. With the assistance of Scott and a boy named Jev, Nora begins rese

5/5 stars.
There are basically no spoilers here, just some mentions and explanations of what I felt about the characters in the book, so I don't count this review as a review that contains spoilers, but I'll just let you decide whether or not to read it.

This book is the best in the series, at least so far. At the beginning of the book, I was skeptical. Nora lost her memory, and as a result she forgot Patch and everything she went through in the first and second book. I thought this book would be

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!

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'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(!) :')
If they don't find a way to make gorgeous Nephilim babies in the last book, I'll cry.

✨3.5 stars✨
I absolutely devoured this book, and I loved every second of it. I read it in a day and was so ridiculously captivated, it’s such addictive story telling and so even though I recognise that some aspects aren’t all that amazing, the reading experience on a whole was just so fun and enjoyable that I can’t help but love it. So why the 3.5 star rating? The reason, ladies and gents, is the amnesia plot point. I get that it was an important part of the story but it was endlessly frustrating

“You're mine, Angel. And I'm yours. Nothing can change that.”
― 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

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...

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.

This has been my favorite so far of the series. So much happens and theres a big change with Nora and she seems so much more like-able. I loved the twists in this one and how every book has that great "Veronica Mars" feel to it. I will definitely be finishing this series!

Nora wakes up to find out she's been kidnapped the last three months but it has left her with amnesia that goes back five months. Her mom and best friend Vee are there for her trying to fill in the blanks but she can't help but

"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.”
