Synopsis from goodreads:


Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Goodreads AVG rating: 4 out of 5 (can change any moment)

Okay, first off,
A forbidden love?
I am tired of hearing those three words on every YA romance book synopsis.
And the sacred oath isn’t even sacred, for your information

The synopsis is misleading.
Why does the synopsis make it sound like it’s a sappy romance novel? Cause this book is WAY more than that. I mean, there are romantic elements to this book, but it’s not really all about the romance. I mean, okay, this book’s vocal point is the romance but there’s more going on.

So on to the characters

Nora:  I don’t like main characters in books unless they’re named Day(Daniel Altan Wing), Percy Jackson, Sage, or Bobby Pendragon.
Nora is no exception.
She’s the classic goody-two-shoes-paranoid-and-questions-everything-and-is-very-gullible girl.
She’s supposed to be smart but I found out the mysteries chapters before her.

Patch: Mr. Sexy-Hot-Seductive-Arrogant-and-Witty
I LOVED his quotes, by the way.
Gosh, he was such a frustrating character cause he was so arrogantly-witty and too seductive.
In fact, he was so seductive I got annoyed

Vee: Classic beautiful-best-friend-who-parties-a-lot. What is different about her from other best-friends-in-books is that she’s beautiful but obese.
I found her kind of annoying.

Random quotes I liked in Hush Hush that don’t reveal much spoilers:

“You’re a psychopath.”
“I prefer creative.”

“Patch wasn’t the kind of guy mothers smiled on. He was the kind of guy they changed the house locks for.”

“I don’t go out with strangers,” I said.
“Good thing I do. I’ll pick you up at five.”

“Keep in mind that people change, but the past doesn’t.”

“Call me Patch. I mean it. Call me.”

“Tacos?” I echoed.
This seemed to amuse him. “Tomatoes, lettuce, cheese.”
“I know what a taco is!”

“Don’t blame me. Tell your mom to move closer. Tell her there’s this new club called civilization and you guys should join.”

“Vee said,” I’m trying to read the title he’s holding…hang on…How to Be a Stalker.”
“He is not checking out a book with that title.” But I wasn’t so sure.
“It’s either that of How to Radiate Sexy Without Trying.”

“Patch grinned down at me. “I’m hard to resist.”

“Well, well,” he said. “Five days a week isn’t
enough of me? Had to give me an evening, too?”

Okay that’s it because I’m too lazy to type more. OTL.

Rate: 8/10

Overall it was good read.
I recommend this to people who like romance, sexy-seductive boys named Patch, and lots of scars and black feathers.


After hardcore persuading from my friends Quynh-Anh and Liana, I will start a book blog.
So starting from today, I will review books, talk about books, fangirl about books, and talk about new releases.
Wow this is going to be really tiring
