Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Title: Crescendo
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date: October 19, 2010

The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

I'm actually really excited for Crescendo! I read Hush, Hush right after it came out and enjoyed. I've been anticipating the sequel ever since and I have nothing but respect for Becca. This week's WoW was sadly brought about by jealousy because S&S sent my friend one which he received in the mail today. S&S, if you can hear me, please send me a copy! I will love you forever. I mean, I can always borrow it from him since he lives 5 minutes away but I like personal copies! Hope you guys enjoyed this weeks WoW. I look forward to see what you look forward to...that was redundant.


  1. Excellent pick!! I am counting down the days to this one!!

  2. Hey Jeremy! Hope you enjoy CRESCENDO! (And I hope you get an ARC, too!)
