Feisty teen Nora Grey somehow survived the crises of Hush, Hush!, but dangers just as frightening loom in this standalone sequel. Patch, her guardian angel and love interest, appears to have a dark side and a wandering eye. Worse yet, he seems intent on obstructing Nora as she hunts for the truth behind her father's mysterious death. Even better than the first

My Thoughts
I LOVED Crescendo.
The great thing about it is that it always kept me guessing. So obviously, I had a very stong feelingthat Patch is one of the bad guys, but then you find out he's not. And well, the whole thing gets pretty shocking.

Very unpredicable. There are some parts of the book that I totally didn't expect at all... I was SHOCKED! You wouldn't possibly think it would happen. I'm just sitting there staring at the page with my mouth hanging open!

The whole idea of prologues is that you don't get them most of the time like at all. But then, thankfully while reading the book I finally got what the prologue was about and which characters are in there. This is also another one of those shocking moments :O

Fitzpatrick sure knows how to write to engage. In Crescendo, all the moments with Nora and Patch are very much exciting. You can feel the electricity between them and you'd just want them to be together.

I love Patch. Seriously, he sounds so down to earth! Except, The one thing I didn't like about Patch is that he wears a cap. I mean come on! That kind of blurs the image a bit... but Patch is still hot :L

It seemed like the ending was going to end simple with Patch and Nora but then there's a cliffhanger... and I don't really like them. And boy is it a humdinger. Now I need to now what happens. I just have to wait a loooooong time for the next book, Silence!


  1. Glad you like it! I have this one on my bookshelf waiting for me... : )

  2. This has been on my TBR pile for a while. I like Hush, Hush but didn't love it so I think that is my hesitance to pick up this book. I'm glad you liked it and your enthusiasm makes me want to move it up my TBR list.

  3. I LOVED Hush Hush... I can't wait to start Crescendo!

  4. I completely agree with you! That cliffhanger brought completely despair to me! I can't wait for SILENCE! Love patch (or should I say Jev!) and nora!

  5. I like Hush hush but I love Crescendo! I was shocked too xD

  6. Ah I love Patch. In Hush Hush he was just wow! And when I listened to the audio book at night I swear I dreamed about him. Can't wait to read Silence!!!

  7. I love Becca and this is one of my top favorite series! I can't wait for Silence!

  8. I gave the first in the series only 3 stars, so I wasn't sure whether to read this one or not. That you loved it makes me want to give it a try. Patch is cool, but somehow I couldn't warm up to Nora.

  9. ahh i was so shocked too ! this book kept me on edge and had me reading it without stopping i actually stayed up till 7 finishing it, i couldnt put it down no matter what !!! great review and i am deff waiting for silence to come out :)

  10. I found this one disappointing. I wanted to like it more then I did, a lot of times the second book acts as a bridge so maybe the 3rd will be better.

  11. This book kept me on edge to. Keeps me thinking what will happen next. I must now have to wait until October for Silence.

  12. I liked this betyter than the first one. and its a trilogy?! Silence is the last on then D':

  13. I READ THIS BOOK TWO TIMES. And three friends of mine have read it too :) It was awesome talk to each other about a chapter o character :)
    Thanks for the review

  14. Oooohhh! I cannot wait to read this book! I have the first one and this one in the series!

  15. I'm so with you. The baseball cap drives me crazy! :P That ending was pretty shocking. I can't believe she left it so cliff-hanger-y. Can't wait for Silence to come out.

  16. I love Nora and Patch(:
    Their cute!


  17. Need to read this one! Absolutely loved Hush, Hush and I have this one on my shelf, but I haven't been able to get to this one yet...great review!
