I'M HERE, YOU'RE HERE, LET'S TALK BOOKS!!

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
Before I read the book... 
CAUTION! THERE ARE SPOILERS!
-The back of the book made me want to read the inside cover, because it brought back memories of the first book, and then the inside cover made me want to read the whole book ha-ha-ha.
-It says that Nora forgets her memory and doesn’t know what has happened in the last 5 months, which is interesting to me because I think this could be a great plot, and also because when Patch and Nora reunite, and she doesn't know who he is, this is a way to keep readers with that “new love,” “flirtatious” beginning that we all loved in the first book.
While reading the book, these are some notes I wrote down...
-I think so far it’s really suspenseful, and I tried to put myself in Nora’s shoes and try to feel what it would be like to forget everything and to not remember how you got where you are---while also trying to think what it would be like for no one to know where I am---totally horrible and unimaginable. 
-What I like a lot is that she’s consistent, covering all the bases. She makes sure all of her information matches up with the story etc. 
-There is no lack of adventure or suspense in the novel, and there are always exciting things happening in every scene. There rarely are any scenes in which nothing important happens. This is why it’s so easy to read her books. 
--I love the way that we are seeing the story unfold in the perspective of Nora, especially since we already know what happened to her. It’s interesting to see her point of view, and the way she processes information and comes to conclusions. 
-What you might find in this book...
  • More thriller
  • More mystery
  • More “edge of seat moments”
  • More flirty comments
  • More funny cute comments
  • More of basically everything that is, Patch...Oh yes, that’s right, more of Patch!
-Moment of criticism: I would have liked to see more of his past, or his worldliness come through (I mean he’s been around for what, hundreds of years? But we don’t really see that much.)
-Really loved the intense scenes, and how the plot could change every second, and you’ll be least expecting it. Literally, you think something’s going to happen, and then the total opposite happens.
-[SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!]LOVE LOVE LOVED the part where Patch comes in with his other fallen angels and says that there are Nephilim that didn’t swear fealty in the room. Very dominating, and exciting!  
Overall grade...
-Overall I give the book 5/5 stars, and it's still on my top favorites list for best series!!! I have so many parts bookmarked, and I found myself pausing in the middle of a page because I had to take a breath from either: being so nervous as to what was going to happen next, I was laughing too much to control myself, or I was giggling non-stop at the flirty comments coming from Patch...as always....
-Definitely something you should read! But pay attention to detail, there’s a lot of things that come into play later! (Which makes it even more fun to act as a detective, figuring out what’s going to happen!) 
-And I mean honestly, the cover of the book is to-die-for! It's one of my favorite covers yet!!! (In close running with Hush, Hush, the first in the Hush, Hush Saga...)
-Anyway, enough of me rambling, you have a book to read!

Peace.Love.Reading

HELLO READERS OF THE WORLD! If you haven’t already, go pick up your copy of Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick! I’ve already read it, and give it a full 5 stars!!! It’s suspenseful and dramatic, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat....or bed...depending on where you read :) I advise everyone to go out and buy it!!

About Me

My photo
I am the Book Genie!! I love reading with all of my heart, (I'm a little dramatic sometimes) and it's an obsession I have to live with. New titles on the teen novel shelves makes my heart beat faster. I've read many books, and I've developed a love for all different types of them. I love making websites and animations, but most of all I love making movies. I want to pursue a career in the movie making industry later on in life. I would also love to start writing novels and screenplays. My family is the most important part about me, because they have taught me everything I know. My pets are also important to me, as are all the animals we feed and save.
