Editorial Reviews Review

Amazon Exclusive: Jenny Han Interviews Becca Fitzpatrick

Jenny Han is the author of We'll Always Have Summer, It's Not Summer Without You, and The Summer I Turned Pretty.

Jenny Han: Writerly questions first. Do you write every day?

Becca Fitzpatrick: I write Monday through Friday. I take the weekends off.

JH: Do you outline?

BF: I didn't used to. But writing Crescendo made me a firm believer in outlining. With a book coming out every year, I don't have time to mess up. I think five years would be my optimal time period for writing a book, but with the nature of a series, I think that would make fans very antsy! When I'm on a deadline, every day counts. I feel an urgency to get the story right the first time.

JH: Did you find the series schedule grueling, doing one book a year?

BF: So many authors say the second book is hard, and they're right. Writing Crescendo was super stressful. The whole time, I kept thinking, I'm never writing a book again. All that pressure, to finish on time, and I also had readers' expectations to think about.

JH: Becca, trust me when I say you more than exceeded them with Silence. When I got to the end of the book, I was so excited Nora's story wasn't over yet. When did you know it would be four books instead of three?

BF: When I was nearing the end of Silence, I kept trying to wrap everything up. I'd planned on ending Patch and Nora's story there, and I wanted to stick to the plan. But a nagging voice at the back of my mind told me I needed to write one more book that takes place during Cheshvan. Those who've read my books know that Cheshvan is the time of year when fallen angels sweep in and possess Nephilim bodies by the droves. I heavily allude to Cheshvan during the first three books, but have never set any of the novels during those dark and haunted weeks. For readers who've been anxiously awaiting a final showdown between fallen angels and Nephilim—-with Patch and Nora torn between sides-—I can't wait for you to read the fourth and final book.

JH: That's genius! Now that you say that, it feels like a fourth book was an inevitability, because how could you even think of keeping all that from us?! Or rather, how could you think of keeping more Patch from us?! Patch is easily one of the sexiest guys in YA literature ever. He's flirty, he's dangerous, he's dark. Is he the guy you would have gone for in high school?

BF: My boyfriend in high school was smart, athletic, and sensitive. He played the saxophone and the piano-—really well. In other words, not a lot of commonalities with Patch. I was crazy in love with him, and so many of my high school memories revolve around him. But I always wondered what it would have been like to fall hard for the baddest of the bad boys-—the guys who made you nervous with a single look, whose thoughts you never could guess. Several novels later, Patch still feels that way to me—-dangerous and impenetrable. I don't think he'd be the least bit disappointed to learn this!

JH: I feel like there's a part of Nora that still doesn't trust Patch completely. Do you think she's justified?

BF: I think it would be very difficult to open myself up completely to someone with a history as dark and sinister as Patch's, so I don’t blame Nora for any unsteadiness in love. Nora trusts Patch, believes in him, and their relationship has grown stronger through each trial they've faced, but she also knows she can't change him. He wants to be the story's hero, but he's in a constant battle with the man he wants to become... and the man he is. The temptation to return to his old lifestyle is relentless.

JH: That makes him even hotter to me. I guess we know who I would choose—-always the impenetrable bad boy, every time! Which is not to say that I don't find the other man in Nora’s life intriguing... Speaking of, would you rather be a fallen angel or Nephilim?

BF: I have a lot of sympathy for Nephilim. I don't think Chauncey Langeais is entirely wrong for hating Patch and trying to get revenge. I can't imagine anything worse than having your body ripped away every October and possessed by a menacing creature. And while it seems fallen angels have all the fun, I'm going to choose Nephilim. But maybe that's because I know something readers don't. Something unexpected and terrifying that happens to fallen angels in Book Four....

JH: After you close out the series, what's next for you?

BF: It's been very hard knowing that soon I'll have to say good-bye to Patch, Nora, Vee, Scott, and even Marcie. But at the same time, I feel there are other characters living in the back of my mind, waiting for their stories to be told. I've always been drawn to writing dark, sexy, and twisty novels, and hopefully I'll be starting a new one very soon!

Becca Fitzpatrick's Silence playlist

Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the Hush, Hush Saga, shares the songs she hears in her head as the soundtrack to Silence, book 3 in the internationally best-selling series. The list includes classics that Patch would love, like “Paint it Black,” and Florence and the Machine’s “Blinding,” which you can picture Nora and Vee singing along to in the car. And, of course, the soundtrack includes some slower, romantic tunes. Who knows? Maybe one of them will be Patch and Nora’s song one day. Listen to Becca's playlists.

Silence thrilling, action packed, pulse pounding novel. I think it's probably the best book of the series thus far. If I didn't want to smack Nora every other chapter I'd have given this a 4-5 star rating. Sadly I've come to the conclusion that I'm just not a huge Nora fan, and unfortunately for me likeable characters are key for my enjoyment of a series, so take my rating on this book with that in mind.

At first I thought my dislike of our gal, Nora, I may have forgiveness issues after all the silly, childish games she played to get under Patch's skin in Cresendo, but now I think it's more than that.

Nora is spunky, sassy, and pushy to the point of being belligerent. She has a temper and regularly explodes and spews bitter vitriol filled words at people she cares for. I think it would be very hard to be her friend or boyfriend.

Here's the real kicker for me - Nora is also weak. She's the kind of girl that needs a man to save her. Now I like a good "white knight rides to the rescue" moment as much as any girl, but Nora pushes the bounds of patience. She literally can't do anything right. I noticed it finally in this book - anything Nora sets out to do she messes up, gets herself in a bind, and needs someone to come save her. And she sets out to do a LOT of dangerous things. Basically any time you see Nora doing detective or spy work, or trying to help anyone - just watch - she'll do some hair brained thing and get herself caught. Every time. Just once I want to see her do something truly heroic, and bad ass, and SMART, and succeed at it. Just once! Le Sigh. I don't feel her character has grown throughout the series - she's no smarter, savvier, more cautious or bad ass than she was in the beginning.

I'm a huge fan of this series from Becca Fitzpatrick and bought this as soon as it came out. I neglected my entire family for the whole day and literally could not put this down. This book starts off when Nora wakes up from her abduction by Hank Millar at the end of book 2 Crescendo.

She has amnesia and can't remember the last 5 months of her life. I wont give away any huge spoilers or plot lines. She spends a lot of her time trying to piece back the last 5 months of her life. This book was much different than Hush Hush and Crescendo in theme and plot as far as storyline goes and Becca Fitzpatrick didn't leave me with any disappointment. There is a lot of danger, action, plot twists, and of course romance.

All of your favorite characters and least favorite characters are back, including: Marcie Millar, Vee, Patch, Hank Millar, Dabria and even a few visits from Scott Parnell AKA Scotty the Potty. There are quite a few exciting parts, some parts made me laugh out loud, some had me swearing at certain characters (you probably know which ones), and the whole thing had me eagerly flipping pages which is one of the reasons I'm addicted to this series to begin with.

I enjoyed the first two books but I think that Becca Fitzpatrick really stepped it up with this one. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could and this is the first book I've ever said that about. Which is saying a lot. Thank you so much Becca Fitzpatrick!

I'm thrilled she has decided to add a fourth installment to this series.

17 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Sash & Em: A Tale of Two Bookies on October 7, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This book was an installment that I was eagerly awaiting. And after finishing it, I had to wait a day until I could get my thoughts together enough to write a coherent review. The beginning is incredibly frustrating because you're seeing the world through Nora's eyes and you're just as "in the dark" as she is about what has happened to her. She can't remember back to April (it's now September) and she has been missing (kidnapped) for 11 weeks. Patch is nowhere to be found, and if anyone remembers him, they aren't saying. Hank Miller is dating Nora's mom and you'll be asking WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON for about the first half of the book. But I swear, just hang in there because the last half is like free-falling.

Eventually, we do get some serious Patch interaction but you'll have to read it to see how that comes about. The plot is incredibly well thought out and Fitzpatrick does a good job in keeping you motivated to read even though she's keeping secrets. :)

The ending - well - I was unaware there was a 4th book that was recently announced so I almost threw my Kindle across the room in frustration. If there was ever a cliffhanger - this is it. I stared at the last page for a few minutes before I completely spazzed out and had to text Sash to see what the heck was going on. I thought I would have to fill in the rest of Nora and Patch's story by myself which was devastating, to say the least. I absolutely ADORE this series. Patch is one of my dream guys (he's also A LOT like my boyfriend--minus the whole fallen angel part--so that works out well). I can honestly say that there is NO way that anyone can guess what happens in this book, much less how it ends.

If you have come to love this series as much as I have, you'll be on your knees begging for more, happy about the ending, and completely swooning over Patch and Nora's love story. (Not to mention Nora turns into an even stronger female protagonist than she was in the previous book, Crescendo.)
