Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Rating 2/5

Even in the YA Urban Fantasy genre, where vampires sparkle, this book takes the cake for ridiculously preposterous. Average teenager Nora Grey meets mysterious guy with intense eyes in biology class. Sound familiar? Seriously, Fitzpatrick could've been a bit more subtle about how much she was ripping off Twilight. Oh, but it's not vampires, it's fallen angels, so it's not the same, right? No, it isn't. Because nothing that Nora does or feels makes any sense, it only makes me roll my eyes. If you are going to write a character that decides on a whim to chase dangerous boys, investigate murders and walk down dark alleys, you might want to give her a personality that suits, or at least one that's struggling with identity issues. I gave this book two stars instead of one because after the gargantuan effort it took me to suspend every molecule of disbelief in my body, the plot became quick and eventful and the story managed to take me out of my own life for awhile, which is really all I wanted out of it in the first place.

See my review of Silence (Hush Hush #4)
