Book Review: Crescendo by: Becca Fitzpatrick.


Despite starting a relationship with Patch, her guardian angel (whose title is the only angelic thing about him), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking good for Nora Grey. Aside from fearing her boyfriend is interested in her nemesis, Nora is haunted by images of her father and becomes obsessed with understanding his disappearance. As Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, she begins to wonder whether her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it. And since Patch isn’t answering her questions, Nora has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch—or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

I am really enjoying this series so far. It really sucks you in and before you know it you have already read 100 pages, which on my phone is really like 400. I feel like I flew through this book. It was very different than Hush, Hush. It takes place during the summer and unlike the first book hardly any of it takes place at school. Fitzpatrick really developed the secondary characters in this one especially Vee and Rixon whom shortly into the book start one of the most precious relationships. I really enjoy both of their characters and think I would actually like to hang out with Vee because she is a hoot. 
I said in my review of Hush, Hush that I wasn't exactly crazy about Nora, well this has grown to a huge annoyance. Nora really needs to get a grip on life. Patch is quite possibly the most adorably dreamy creature (other than Peeta Mellark) thought up and she keeps throwing him away. I would be ok with it if she was but no she breaks up with him and then pines after him the whole book. I just want to shake her.
This book also introduces us to new character, Scott Parnell, who you just aren't sure what to think of. He switches from creeper to nice guy and back so many times that it really messes with your head. At one point in time I actually questioned whether he had a split personality or not. 
Overall this book was pretty good. It's a quick read and has some great characters. In my opinion its not as good as Hush, Hush which just had that something special, but it was still very entertaining.

Back to my movie cast... I have found a much better Patch.

His name is Steven Strait and I can't believe I didn't think of it right away he is perfect. I'm moving my previous Patch who was Gaspard Ulliel to Rixon.
