Waiting on Wednesday #20 - Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick...and Competition Winners!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.

 
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Simon & Schuster
Hardcover, 432 pages.
Release date: October 14th 2010.
Target Age Group: 14+

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 definitely eagerly awaiting this one. I know lots of my fellow bloggers have already read this one from all those IMM posts a few weeks back where it seemed like the whole world (except little old me) had been sent this for review! I'm not bitter, I swear! :-D So, those of you who've read it, is it as good as I think it's going to be? Do share your thoughts & WoW links in comments.

  7. I just watched a great promotional video about this book over at Inkcrush, you should check it out. Me I haven't read Hush Hush yet and am not sure I am going to, but I know a lot of bloggers really liked it.

  8. I got lucky enough to be on an ARC tour for this one but I haven't read it yet. I probably won't get to until it's released, hahahaha!

  9. I know that everyone loved Hush Hush but I wasn't too thrilled with it! I know, I'm one of the few :) I didn't like it, but I didn't not like it... Confused? Me, too ;) Anyway, I have to admit that Becca knows how to write, she's really good, but I just didn't like the characters & the only reason I continued reading was her style of writing which it kept me going, but it was still too predictable, but I guess that's just me ;)
    Lol, sorry, I forgot myself, but bottom line, I'm not planning to read this one, although I think that I read a review in which the reviewer said this one is better than the 1st one!

  12. Congratulations to the winners! I'm not bitter, but I think that's because I'm one of the last persons who haven't read Hush Hush yet. Yet!!! I have it here beside my laptop. Going to read it asap!! :) lOVE THE COVER.

  13. Everyone's waiting for Crescendo I think (those of us that didn't get ARCs, of course :P). The covers in this series really are very pretty, I loved the cover of Hush Hush. Great pick and thanks for sharing.
