Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

I do not recommend this book
I have never read a book that has made me this uncomfortable in my entire life. While I'll admit that the point of art is to make one feel uncomfortable this was just ridiculous. I have a general rule, if I cant find something good to say about a book within the first 100 pages then I put it down for good. I can count on my hand the books that have made this list, and Hush, Hush was just added. With that said this review will only contain information from the first one hundred and seven pages.

Here's why this book made me uncomfortable. Sex. It's mentioned on basically every page. Even the first page is all about sex. The way it's written made me wonder if a horny teenager wrote this, but then I googled it and no it wasn't. Becca Fitzpatrick was, sadly, in her late twenties when this was published. And if this is the best you can do in your late twenties then you should seriously consider a career change. 

The characters? Nora, our main character, is so plain and boring. Patch, our bad boy love interest, makes me even more uncomfortable. The way he interacts with Nora is creepy. Vee, Nora's best friend, is so annoying it makes me crazy. I couldn't stand having a friend like her. Lastly we have Elliot. I didn't really get that far into him but he was the only one that didn't make me want to cry. 

Overall I'm really disappointed with this. I feel like I've been reading so many bad books lately and this one tops the list. So back to the school library it goes to never be thought of again.

I give this book no srars


  1. I didn't care for this book either. Or the characters. Things would happen that would leave me going "Huh?" Like you, I finally had to stop reading and take it back to the library unfinished. :)

    1. I hate not finishing a book, but this one was just too creepy for me.
