Review:
I’m making good progress through this series. On to book three already and looking like I will officially be done with this saga/sequence/whatever in the next couple of days. Thank goodness. I know what you’re thinking, I could have stopped anytime. But let’s face it, that’s just not me. I will read bad books just to be reading something, no matter how angry I get at characters (authors generally spare most of my wrath, maybe unfairly).

Review:
Crescendo is the sequel to Hush, Hush, the story of the infuriating Nora and her fallen angel lover boy Patch. Right from the start there was a lot about this novel that irked me. They may seem like little things, but they add up to the reading experience of the book as a whole. I’m going to remember those little things. Well, most of them, hopefully.

Review:
If you’ve been following my reviews lately, then you would know I have made myself a goal, to start finishing all these series I’ve started and then forgotten about. Next up in my pile was Hush, Hush, which I first read in 2012. Here is my original review(I gave it 3 stars):

I’ve read a lot of negative reviews about this book, but personally I kinda liked it. I read it within around three days, the storyline just grabbed me. Paraanormal romances are a dime a dozen these days, and most aren’t very good at all, but I did enjoy this story of fallen angels. Interesting concepts of getting back into heaven by becoming guardians, or by becoming human by killing a possessed Nephilim host. Not really sure what it was in this book that hooked me, but whatever it was allowed me to overlook some annoying little details, which I won’t point out because then you’ll notice them everywhere. So I’ll leave them for now!


Back then I obviously believed in more of allowing readers to make their own decisions without being influenced by my sorry excuse for a review. These days, that doesn’t bother me so much and I just say exactly what I think in my reviews. Like, that I think Nora is one of the most ‘wishy-washy’ characters I’ve read who seems to have little sense of self-preservation as she continually wanders into dark alleys and other potentially dangerous or just flat-out dangerous situations.
