Review: Crescendo - Becca Fitzpatrick.

Date published: 10/19/10
Publisher: Simon & Schuster.
Pages: 427.
Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)

Feisty teen Nora Grey somehow survived the crises of Hush, Hush!, but dangers just as frightening loom in this standalone sequel. Patch, her guardian angel and love interest, appears to have a dark side and a wandering eye. Worse yet, he seems intent on obstructing Nora as she hunts for the truth behind her father's mysterious death. Even better than the first.                                                                                  

My Review.

I'm going to jump right in. I literally tore trough it, I couldn't put it down. I started reading it this morning at eight and finished it a few minutes ago, it's 12now. I loved the fact that it was very fast paced, because I tend to get bored easily. I thought it was well written and again, I love the font that was chosen for the book. The storyline keeps changing and evolving, new elements are introduced  all the time, bits and pieces of informations to put together and it's a lot to process but everything makes sense and Becca did an amazing job at explaining - creating - everything. I was trying to figure everything out just as the same time as Nora was. Just like her, I had no idea of who was bad and who was nice, who was genuinely looking after her and who wasn't.  We see everything from her point of view and it makes it easy to relate to her and I could almost feel what she's feeling. I love that she tried to do what's best regarding Patch (Always so sexy and mysterious), trying not to be totally addicted to him and trying to be strong. Overall, it's an amazing sequel that I would recommend to anyone who likes young adult fiction. Oh and be prepared for the worst cliff hanger of all times. Anxiously awaiting for the third book!

My Rating: 
For fans of: Fallen, Dark secrets


  1. I loved Crescendo! It was so infuriating, with Patch being so. . . Mysterious? Annoying? Super hot? I don't know, but it was a great book! But now I want the next one so badly!

  2. I loved Crescendo, Great review!!
