Things have been veeery quiet here at The Book Pushers. Meh, Life! It has a nasty habit of getting in the way sometimes. 😉
The Book Pushers have things going on right now in our lives, but we are still sticking with out badass hero theme and have some posts planned. So while things may be quiet here — hopefully not for long — we like to think of Twitter as our second home and we do still tweet on our individual accounts there.
Sticking with our theme, I read Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick last night and enjoyed it, though there were a few things that bothered me – mainly about the world building and how I felt there wasn’t enough information regarding the angels.
Here is the cover and the blurb (taken from the author’s official website):
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
It’s a YA, but the hero of the story, Patch, totally fits the term of a hero who can be termed as bad.
I was racking my brains, and tried to think of any YA books that feature heroes such as Patch and came up stumped. Can anybody recommend any YA books where such a hero exists who has anti-hero tendencies?
