Welcome

This is a place for my opinions on what I read, some movies or whatever else I find interesting. I love reading. I can find something positive about everything I read, at least I hope I can. I understand it takes a great deal of love and effort to write a book and to get it published. An author does not set out to write a crappy book, this is/was their baby. They got up at all hours of the night to feed it.

I don't see how you can give a true review of a book rushing through it. Don't you need to savor it a bit? I don't want my opinion to discourage anyone from reading. I hope you find something here you find interesting.

I buy most of my books, I get a few ARC, and I visit my library when my funds are low. I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by my opinions on the books I've read. I don't care if you buy it, borrow it, or check it out at the library. Just read. :)

Crescendo


AUTHOR: Becca Fitzpatrick
EDITION: Kindle Edition (Hush,Hush #2)
WEBSITE: http://beccafitzpatrick.com/

ACQUIRED: Purchased





SUMMARY:
Now that Patch is Nora's guardian angel you'd think the two of them would have less turmoil in their life. You'd be wrong.
The book centers on Nora trying to find her father's killer. Patch and Nora seem to be becoming more distant as Nora gets closer to the truth. The visions, a new friend, Scott, and a mysterious package lead Nora searching for the "Black Hand," whom she hopes will have all the answers she is searching for.
With the help of her best friend, Vee, Nora does some detective work and gets herself in enough trouble only Patch would be capable of getting her out of. The problem is, Patch becomes someone she can no longer reach out to.
The twists and turns leave Nora not even knowing who she is anymore and questioning just who can she trust?

OPINION:
Wow. I wasn't expecting this. I hated Patch well over half of this book. I was like, "Becca what have you done to my Patch?" Oh he was just such a jerk I couldn't stand it. Doing things I just couldn't understand. And I just wanted to yell at Nora half the time, "What are you doing?" I love these two characters and I couldn't believe they were constantly being torn apart by their own doing.
I love Vee, so glad she had such a huge part.
This book had me full of emotions. "NOOO. Aww that's sweet. What? Oh no he didn't. Oh no she didn't." A complete roller coaster.
For those of you who were hoping you'd finally learn Patch's real name, well you'll be happy to know it does get revealed. I'm not going to tell you what it is, though.(hehe now what would be the fun in me just telling you) I read the kindle edition and his name was revealed when I was 99% done. I was thinking I had overlooked it, or someone lied to me and Becca didn't tell us, but you'll get to know. Just be patient little ones.
Great read. Be prepared for a huge cliffhanger. Do we really have to wait until fall of 2011 for the next book? Nooooo. Now what was I saying about being patient?
Loved it.

  2. I hate it when characters are acting totally irresponsible and causing their own angst. Instead of yelling at them, I imagine myself shaking or choking them out of their own stupidity. LOL. Found this blog through Book Blogs (Vampire links). Subscribed. Feel free to visit my blog as an RTF?

TIPS

Book Odor Removal:

I bought a book at a library book sale, it had a strange odor. Someone gave me this suggestion to remove the smell, and it worked, so I thought I'd share.
Put the book in a ziploc bag along with 1/3 cup(more or less) of Arm & Hammer baking soda and seal shut. Leave the book alone for 2 or 3 days. It worked for me, hope it helps you too.
