Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

ooooooohhhhh….I really liked this book. I’ve been holding off reading this book, cuz I knew that it would be good. I’m weird like that. I like to keep the good books for later, in case I need something really good.

So, Nora Grey is a normal girl. She has the normal boring life that we all think we live. That is until Patch comes into her life. He’s mysterious, moody, dark, dangerous and oh so hot. He starts showing up everywhere in her life. Is he stalking her? How does he know where she is? Why does she feel so attracted to him? Why can’t she get him out of her head?

There’s a new guy in school. He’s pretty hot. Elliot transferred from the Kinghorn Prep, the private school a couple towns over. He’s hot, popular, nice…everything Patch isn’t. Who should she choose? Wait, Nora finds out something from Elliots past. Elliot isn’t the person she thought he was…will Patch save her in time?

I loved this book. I really enjoyed the fact I couldn’t predict everything. The writing was good, the characters believable and I loved that there were more than one plot lines. All in all, a great first novel!! Can’t wait to read more…either a sequel to this *wink wink, nudge nudge* or something new!

The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz

This is the 4th book in the series…and it was disappointing…in the beginning. I don’t know why, but lately the first halves of books have been really hard to get through. I guess I may be a little tired of all the back story and want more action!! Maybe I’m reading the wrong books…or in the wrong genre. But YA has never done me wrong before!! Come on people, get your act together! Haha

So, in this installment, we get the viewpoint from not only Schulyer, Bliss, and Mimi. I liked this…Every person/character has their own perspective and we don’t always get to see that in books. It’s nice to see different sides to the “bitch” character and the “sweet” character. They aren’t just one dimensional.

Saying that, gosh I would hate to have been Bliss in this series. No way in the world would I want to have voices and demons living inside of me! Not just demons either, but Lucifer himself! No thank you. I can do bad things on my own, I don’t need any help.

One thing I thought was a little too contrite was the fact that Schulyer and Jack get to be together in the end. Sorry people for that spoiler…but WTH? Life isn’t always a happy ending and sometimes I think books should go way too. The only thing that I have to say against that idea is that the lives of the Blue Bloods was turning upside and so much bad was already going on, that at least one good thing happened. I guess I may be torn on that subject, but it was still a little too obvious.

I did enjoy the part about Jordan though!! I won’t say too much about this part. Can’t spoil the whole book for people! But it was good. I wasn’t really expecting that.

All in All…waiting patiently for the next in the series. I love all the mythology about the Angels. Makes me want to go out and study them. I don’t really know what all the angels are and what they represent. Hmmmm…maybe a side project for me…

Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead

This is the third installment of the series. You definitely have to read this series in order, or a lot of things won’t make sense to you.

This one was a little slower for me than I remember the first two, but it was still a good one!!

In this one, Georgina has trouble keeping her energy. For some reason, every time she gets a fix that night she dreams about being a mother and having a family and when she wakes up…poof..no energy. At first, no one believes her, but then a group of Angels come around and are looking for something they won’t tell anyone about.

As well as this small mystery, Georgina and Seth’s relationship grows and well…falls in this book. I cannot…and I mean CANNOT believe that Seth would go out and sleep with Maggie, Georgina’s friend. WTF!?! Yes, Georgina sleeps with guys…she has to. She’s a succubus. BUT she never does it in the same body that Seth knows or with someone she knows. Seth freaking has sex with her good friend!! If I were Georgina I would be out of there…and I really hope that she is!!! There has got to be someone else out there!! Come on!! I would be pissed.

I guess I better put the next one Succubus Heat on order at the library!!
