Teen Book Review: Hush, Hush

hush-hush.jpg Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Review by Nina, Sonoma Valley, 8th grade
Hush, Hush was written by Becca Fitzpatrick.  It is a story similar to Twilight but instead of a vampire, there is a fallen angel.  The story is about Nora Grey and how she comes to love Patch.  After he becomes her biology partner she becomes attracted to him but feels uneasy.  She goes through a few experiences where it seems like she has a stalker but keeps forgetting the details.  In this story, Nora has to make decisions about who to trust and what to do.  These decisions could cost her, her life.

The story starts off a little uninteresting, but as you read the plot develops and you get drawn into it.  This book is great for people who like Twilight and others who like books about mythical creatures.  I thought this book was overall, very good and an interesting book to read.

Teen Book Review: Night World Series

Night World Series by L.J. Smith
Review by Zoe in Rohnert Park
Zoe reviewed the first two books in the series, Secret Vampire and Daughters of Darkness

Secret Vampire
This is a fairly large book; I mean, its 729 pages. I read this really fast, not because I wanted to finish it, and not because I was borrowing it. I finished it fast because it pulled me in, and I couldn’t stop reading. The novels inside of them are incredibly well written. Though I knew, the Night World is a confusing place; L.J. Smith made me want to live in it.
L.J. is one of those authors who’s books were written like 10 years ago; and are starting to get re-published. Let’s just say that I’m am really glad that her books are being re-published. All of them that I have read are awesome. If you enjoy paranormal books, or even if you don’t. You should read this book.

Daughters of Darkness
So, I finished this book a few days ago. I honestly like the first one better. It was more addicting than this one. I mean, don’t get me wrong, this was a lovely book. But, it didn’t have as much things drawing me in. The stories were well though out and creative, but, they just weren’t it. So, if you have read the first book, don’t give up on the series because of this book. You may like it more than I do.
