Waiting On Wednesday: Silence

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Silence (Hush, Hush bk.3)
by Becca Fitzpatrick
Releases on October 4, 2011.
Last month, I power-read the first two books (Hush, Hush and Crescendo) of this series.  By power-reading I mean: two days, stay-up-as-late-as-possible, all plot events run into each other, don't-bother-me-I'm-reading!!! power-reading sessions.

I didn't write reviews for these books yet. Maybe I will when I re-read them before Silence comes out. 

I must admit this series had a sort of "Twilight" effect on me.  I fell in love with the storyline (despite it's flaws).  I was completely and utterly enveloped in it the point where I can't really remember what minor stuff happened in which book, the point when you're willing to skip a meal or cancel plans because you don't want to stop reading. 

Still, the more I considered the characters and plot, the more flaws I saw. Some characters can be overly whiny and completely unbelieveable.  Some of the situations Nora puts herself in are absolutely ridiculous. I understand the poor book reviews. I get it.  But despite it all, I'm completely in love with this story (and Patch).  Hopefully, the final phase of my Twilight effect* doesn't break the Silence for me (sorry for the terrible pun...couldn't help myself). 

Love the cover!  Finally one with both characters on it. Can't wait until October!

*I hated Breaking Dawn with a passion and it ruined the entire series for me.  But that's a rant for another day.


  1. I agree. I like Patch more than the stories. Especially the second one. Hopefully Silence will be better. And Breaking Dawn didn't do anything for me either. Great punning!

  2. I keep meaning to read this series but never am able to find the opportunity! It sounds really good though! :) Nice WOW choice!
