Book Review: Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Synopsis (from Goodreads.com):
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.


My Review: I was so insanely disappointed with this book. Have you ever heard that the second book in a series is either really good or really bad? This one was really bad. That might not bother me as much if the first book hadn't been so amazing. I felt like the whole book was going in circles. A lot of it seemed really pointless and predictable. The characters were really under-developed in this book, and they weren't the same as in the first book. The tone was also completely different. The only consistant thing was the plot. It was a little too consistant, almost the same really. I really, really want to say that I liked this book, but I really didn't.

So as for recommendations, I would say don't read this book if you haven't already. The first one didn't need a sequel, so you'd be fine with just that one. If you do read this book, don't get your hopes up for something amazing. I'm hoping that when the third book comes out it will be good enough to make this one ok. I'm planning on reading it, so I'll let you know ;).



Thanks for reading, and sorry it took so long to post this. Next up for review: The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels.

  1. Thanks for the review! I loved Hush, Hush, but I've been super skeptical about this book. I mean, just from the summary, it didn't seem as though it would be good as the last. Sorry to hear it didn't live up to expectations :(
