Hi there, fellow readers!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
This is the place to get your bookish fix of the day and guess what? Today's featured title is definitely a reason to be SUPER excited. Why? Oh, well, it's only all about book two in a particular YA series that happens to release tomorrow....you probably don't even know which one I'm talking about, so no worries. -walks off- *hears whisper* What's that? You've been waiting for it too? Small world! Okay, so not really...the world is rather big and round and green but that's beside the point. It's a small reading world after all since you know what book I mean...and why not? The first book was a great introduction to that magic that is Patc....oh, wait. Let me introduce the title first. (hehe) Today's book of choice and wishes for a HAPPY (almost) BOOK BIRTHDAY go to.....
*WARNING* Potential spoilers if you have not read book one (Hush, Hush) in the series....so either STOP RIGHT THERE before you ruin it for yourself....or continue ...but you were warned....*
When we last left this fantastical story, Patch was Nora's assigned Guardian Angel, having restored his wings through his last grand gesture at the close of book one. Ideal, right? I mean, now they can spend all their time together....alone...with no one around to watch or interrupt.....uh, yeah....not quite. See, Patch lost his angel status once by falling for a mortal human girl...the same thing can happen again if the ones on high catch wind of this forbidden relationship...not to mention his angelic duties extend beyond Nora as well. To whom you ask? Nope, sorry...can't reveal that to you just as Patch can't reveal his secret to Nora. *sniff*sniff* Anyone else smell trouble brewing? *raises hand* Add in Marcie Millar's sudden desire to out Patch's secret (as if she REALLY knew what that was) and the return of Nora's childhood friend (not really friend, more like bully) by the name of Scott Parnell who is surrounded by so many strange happenings its not even funny....and yeah, you have quite the storyline bubbling just beneath the surface. Will Patch and Nora make it through? Hard to say, but their relationship is not the only thing at stake here....so are their lives.
Oh Hush Hush, how I loved thee, let me count the ways....starting with Patch and Nora, continuing with fab friends like Vee and ending with a great storyline that left readers (myself included) on the edge of their seats waiting for more. Crescendo, you long awaited sequel you, did not disappoint....despite my having to read you in record time thanks to the threat of spoilers if I didn't finish before the weekend being promised by one blogger friend that shall remain nameless (you know who you are...*glares*). Do I regret the speed read? Not at all....except in two ways. (Yes, that is a contradiction there, but let me explain...) First, I wished to savor you and draw out your essence until publication day arrived (read this one in early September)....and second, so I could hang on to all your little details more vividly (yeah, we learn A LOT in this book). Alas, neither came to pass, but still I am one happy reader who feels very privileged to have had the chance to read this book early. Moving forward....
Until next time...happy reading!
