It's not exactly been a week of plenty, but it has been a great week nonetheless! Earlier this week I received an ARC of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, and it was awesome! No other books acquisitions to report, I still have a big stack from last weeks excursion to the library, and those should keep me occupied for the upcoming week.
I loved the characters; they ran the gamut from blatantly pernicious to deceptively benign. Dark and dangerous Patch with his closet full of skeletons3 and his rogue’s smile was by far my favorite, I felt like he was pulled straight out of my daydreams4. Cautious and reliable Nora with her own shadows lurking in her past rang true as a wonderfully relatable protagonist, and her BFF and soul sister Vee had more than a flare for the dramatic. She livened up the dialogue with flashes of humor that had me laughing out loud or shaking my head along with Nora.
1 ...admittedly high...
2 I can't believe I have to wait another year for Crescendo, I don't know if I can make it!
3 Possibly real.
4 A realization that leaves me pondering my ratiocination in respect to fantasy me.
5 You can tell how much I liked this book by how many big words I used!
