Hello there friends!!
Today we'll talk about ... "Hush, hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick.
Here is the description...
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn 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 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 far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora 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 her life.
Scuttlebutt: Oh Patch, oh Patch, oh Patch... *sigh*. So Mrs. Prattle... I finished reading "Hush, hush" yesterday. I have some questions...
You think all the fallen angels are hustlers and con - men?
Prattle: It seems they are, kinda freaky if you ask me! I'm not sure what I think of Patch...
Scuttlebutt: Oh I am pretty sure of what I think of Patch *grins*.
Another question... have you visualized Patch or Nora or any other character? I mean, can you see them in your mind? Which Hollywood actor would play these characters if you were casting?
Prattle: I did yes, for the role of Patch I think I would cast Ian Somerhalder. And for Nora? Hm...not sure. What about you, who would you choose?
Scuttlebutt: *screams* IAN SOMERHALDER???? *faints* ... *crawls on chair panting and wiping off drool* I think that is a very good idea... Nora? Umm... Lets see... Me? *grins*
Prattle: What was your favorite part? I think mine was in the hotel! *wiggles eyebrows*
Scuttlebutt: You know, I wanted to talk to you about that! You said there was no sex or whatsoever in this book but I think that some parts are very very sexual... yeahh... the hotel scene... mhmmm... Oh wait, what about the movie theater bathroom scene?? That was a good one too! Where he raised her on the counter..
Prattle: Oh yeah... *nods head* up on the counter...almost kissing...hot. Reading about "almost" I think is hotter than reading an actual scene. Leaves more to the imagination, and I've got a great imagination! *evil grin*
Scuttlebutt: I don't think y'all need me to tell you about MY imagination, right? *grins*
So... are all the fallen angels smoking hot like Patch? Where can I find me one?
Prattle: No, remember the one guy was a big burly Scottsman? Hmm... Scottsman... mmm... Gerry... oh, sorry! Where to find one? I guess hang out at pool halls and old time amusement parks near the scary rollercoasters! Make sure your lap bar is secure and keep your hands and feet in the car at all times.
Scuttlebutt: At this point, I'd like to thank our dear friends and affiliates Brenda and Gabs for pointing me in this direction *big smile*. You should visit their blog "Dark in the Light". They are two cool little angels :))
Prattle: Yes yes! Their blog is pretty awesome.. and their tweets are too, they're pretty funny to watch! And the book was good, I enjoyed it! I think my favorite character was Nora's bff...she's kinda "out there" and I can identify!
Scuttlebutt: *cough* Errr... I must say, I think Vee is very annoying and also stupid at some points. She was like totally trying to fix Nora up with Elliott and also went to a deserted school with 2 guys she barely knew to play "hide and seek"???
Prattle: Tada! *jazz hands* yep, that's me! Not really... She was a bimbo, but a fun bimbo..
Scuttlebutt: You, are NOTHING like Vee dear Prattle! *shakes head*. And yes, up until one point she is fun but then... Ugh! I wanted to kick her!
Prattle: Awww, thank you dear Scuttlebutt! *hugs you* and what about the crazy school counselor??? She was completely nutz-o! I liked her too..lol!
Scuttlebutt: Well, you know she was... *hands on mouth* Well, I think y'all need to read the book now, dont you?? You definitely should! We loved it!
Let us know what you think!!
Scuttlebutt and Prattle at your service!
