Book Review: CRESCENDO by Becca Fitzpatrick

Crescendo (Hush Hush #2)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publication Date: October 9, 2010
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre/Category: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Summary on Goodreads:

Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can’t figure out if it’s for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn’t answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?
My Thoughts:

Yesterday I finished reading Crescendo. I wonder why I didn’t read the book as soon as it was released. I liked it so much, it was hard to put down. It kept me on the edge of my seat (i mean bed :). I read it while I cooked lunch, and I brought it with me every where in the house. I even read it on the bathroom! As much as I hate reading on the car, I still did just to finish the last few pages, while we’re on our way to the grocery store! I got dizzy but it was worth it. The book is really good, I want the next one! It was way better than the first book Hush, Hush!

I don’t actually plan to write a review about this book, I just thought of saying a few words to describe my feelings when I read it. It was fun to read about Nora and Patch’s relationship, though they quarrel a lot and make up a lot too, I can actually sympathize with Nora’s feelings. She’s so real to me. Her emotions, her actions… I understand her because I know that if I were on her shoes, I would have done the same things. I like Patch for being a jerk 🙂 he’s bad and good at the same time, he’s so irresistible.

I think the ending is good, but cliffhanger ending is always a killer! I was suddenly like “Com’on! leave them alone”, but nothing… it was so heartbreaking…

I won’t say anything more about this book. But I rate this as 4 (actually a 4.5) out of 5. Just so you know, I enjoyed and liked this book. I liked it more than I thought I would. And I finally know Patch’s real name! Read it to find out 🙂
