Book Review: Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finale (Hush, Hush, #4)Title: Finale 
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush, Hush #4
Pages: 454
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Books
Date of Publication: 25th October 2012
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Will love conquer all?

Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.

But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.

As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for.

My Thoughts:
If you've been following my blog for a while now, you may know that I am a huge fan of Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series. I've been following it since the beginning, and I remember finishing Hush, Hush after being recommended it by a friend, and completely loving it. Now, having read all four books over the last three years, I'm sad to see it end, but I'm super glad that I saw it through, as it was brilliant.

I must admit, I don't really remember what happened in the first three books, but it was nothing that a quick visit to Wikipedia couldn't fix. I'd definitely recommend a reread of the first three books if you have the time! It took me a couple of chapters to get myself fully invested back into the story, but once I did I remembered exactly why I love the series so. The characters are great, the plot's exciting and well thought out, and the writing is so easy to read and get lost in.

I love Nora. Sure, she can be really annoying (Crescendo, anyone?), but I love reading about her and her story. However, in Finale she seems to return to her annoying ways... She's not as whiny as she could have been, but she does make some seriously stupid decisions that she knew were wrong, yet she still does them. She also gets jealous and has no faith in Patch, again, which is always frustrating because it's clear how much he loves her so why would he cheat? Eurgh. I love her to bits but damn is she infuriating sometimes! Anyway...

As always, the plot got started and then never stopped moving until the end. It kept me guessing with all the twists and turns, and while some of them were quite predictable, I could see how well they fit into the story and it was great to see all the little threads from previous books come together and wrap up nicely in the end. I did feel that some of the twists were a bit ludicrous and it made the story seem a little bit silly sometimes... But I forced myself to look over them and all was great at the end.

I don't really have that much more to say about this book. I don't want to sit gushing about the series to you for hours, but you really should read it! If you haven't started this series yet and paranormal romance is your thing, YOU MUST. With awesome characters, excellent writing and some super awesome fallen angels, it's definitely not one to miss and I cannot wait to read everything else Becca writes in the future.

  3. I love the Hush, Hush series, which turned me on to fallen angel stories. I love them almost as much as vampires! This book is the best Hush, Hush novel yet--it's filled with romance, love, shocking surprises, and an ending that left me sighing with happiness. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so all I will say is be sure you don't miss this amazing book--it's a wonderful, captivating, beautiful read!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
