Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick

  • Book Title: Hush, Hush
  • Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
  • My Rating: 5/5 Stars
  • Format: Paperback

I was introduced to this book by a very good friend of mine. She had mentioned it to me a few times, and I finally looked it up and thought I would give it a chance. I was a bit skeptical at first because I didn't really think the synopsis sounded very appealing. However, as soon as I started reading this book, I was hooked.
Hush, Hush is the kind of book that you will want to stay up all night just to see what's going to happen next. I immediately fell in love with most of the characters, especially Patch and Nora. The characters were well developed in this book and the author's writing style was phenomenal.
I remember as soon as I finished this book, I was begging my mom to take me to get the next one. The storyline is so unpredictable, especially when you get further into the book. It really captivates you and leaves you wanting more.
I'm a sucker for the whole 'good girl falls in love with the bad boy' thing, and I know some people tend to stay away from those kind of books because they are very unoriginal. Hush, Hush does have the 'good girl-bad boy' thing, but there's definitely a twist.
The entire Hush, Hush series has become one of my favorites. If you're a bit skeptical about reading this, just give it a chance! I promise you will not regret it!
I gave this book 5/5 stars because the plot was amazing, the characters were amazing, and basically the entire book was amazing!

Do I recommend this book? YES. YES. YES.

The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

  • Book Title: The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden
  • Author: Jessica Sorensen
  • My Rating: 5/5 Stars
  • Format: Ebook
I first saw this book when I was roaming around on GoodReads one day. I was immediately drawn to the cover (I suppose any girl would be :P) and I just had to see what it was about. I read the synopsis and knew that I just HAD to read this book.
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden is an amazing book, and personally, one of my favorites. The author obviously knows how to add so much emotion in her writing and it amazed me. I just want to say that I have NEVER cried or even teared up over a book before. Although this book didn't make me full out cry, it did make me tear up in a few of the more emotional scenes.
This book deals with very realistic struggles and, in my opinion, really makes you feel thankful for the life that you have. If I had to deal with what Callie or Kayden deals with, I honestly don't know what I would do with myself.
In my opinion, this book deserves 5/5 stars. It was definitely a page turner for me, and if I'm not mistaken, it took me only 2 days to read it (just because I started it late at night). It was very well written and the characters were very well developed.
Also, Callie and Kayden's friends cracked me up. It kind of made me wish my friends were that funny and laid-back.
Favorite quote: "It's amazing how the things you remember are the things you'd rather forget and the things you desperately want to grasp onto seem to slip away like sand in the wind." -Callie
Do I recommend this book?  100% YES.
P.S. Sorry if this sucks. It's my very first review and I didn't really know what to do. Feedback is much appreciated! :)
