I am in so much shock. AAGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! This is getting at me. Usually I don't freak out or rant exactly like this, but this is not a usual book!!!!!!! I'm dying here!!!!! So good!! Shocked+Freaked+Utterly Amazed=4 out of 5 stars
Crescendo, by Becca Fitzpatrick
Oh, it's out, so read it!
4 out of 5 stars!
Summary from Goodreads:Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
So. Good!!!!!!! I loved it. It was amazing! But you probably already knew that. Haha. :)
Oh, the plot was awesome!!!!!!! I really liked how Becca Fitzpatrick made Nora and Patch stop being as well off and how she added Marcie Millar to it all. But mainly, I can't stop gushing over the twists and surprises!!! There were so many. And they were so good!!!!!!!!! I never saw any of them coming!!!!!!!!! Still. In. Shock.
There are at least 3 main surprises, but I can't tell you! Read the book!!
Oh, and Patch. He was so good!!!!!!!! Well, in a bad boy way. Swoon, swoon, swoon. I loved him!!!!!!!!! And even if you don't like bad boys, you still will love Patch!!! Yup, he's that awesome. Love, love, love! He's done even better than he is in Hush Hush. And that's saying a lot. So Patch=Amazing.
Nora was totally relatable. And that's what I liked about her. She was a little whinier though. It seemed like all she could to was freak about Patch and love/hate him. I mean, I totally get why she would, but isn't Nora a little overboard???
There was a little less action, but a huge cliffhanger that will have you begging for Silence. So all is okay thanks to cliffhangers!!
This book was even better than Hush Hush, if possible. It was so good!!!!! So if you've read Hush Hush, you need to read Crescendo!!!! Then you can rant about it like me!!!!!!!! But make sure you've read Hush Hush!!!!!!! (It's the first book).
So... how is it possible to wait till Silence comes out????
