Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

   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 judgment.

   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.

I absolutely loved this book! A lot of people have told me that it was good and man they were not lying! Okay first off I love Patch. He is a very mysterious person. Throughout the book I was questioning who was who. If they are good or bad. I thought for sure Elliot was the one in the ski mask trying to kill Nora. But it was not. Nora is crazy to be living all alone in her house. At first she hates Patch because Nora and Vee do not sit by each other anymore. Patch seems to be everywhere that Nora is. I thought that it was odd that every time Elliot, Vee, Nora, and Jules were suppose to hang out or do something, Jules always had something else going on. Patch and Nora start to get closer and she knows she is not supposed to like this. That something is off about everything. Nora knows that she is not supposed to trust Patch but some how she does. She keeps everything that is happening between them a secret from Vee. Elliot starts to threaten Nora if she doesn’t show up to the party or play hide in go seek with them. Nora finds out that its Jules, he’s the one that is after her. He is stopping at nothing to get to her. Even if it means killing her best friend Vee. Although Patch is still a mystery cause you don't really know who he is. Or if he loves her more than he want to kill her. I loved this book and EVERYONE I mean EVERYONE should read it!

Give up the Ghost by Megan Crewe

   Cass McKenna much prefers ghosts over “breathers.” Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable, and they know the dirt on everybody…and Cass loves dirt. She’s on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school.

   But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass’s whole scheme hangs in the balance. Tim wants her to help him contact his recently deceased mother, and Cass reluctantly agrees.
   As Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim’s life, she’s surprised to realize he’s not so bad—and he needs help more desperately than anyone else suspects. Maybe it’s time to give the living another chance….

I must say that this book was addicting! I loved the connection that Cass had with her sister Paige and at first I did not realize that Norris and Bitzy were really ghosts! That was stupid on my part! I really liked this book. I thought it was sweet that Cass could talk to all these people and learn new things about everyone. And she put that information to good use. Cass was a strong person and does not let anyone get in her way. She did not have a strong relationship with any living person. Her mom was always gone, Danielle and her did not talk, Cass talked to Paige and she was her best friend. Until Tim came along. At first it was weird. Tim knew something was different with Cass. The more that Cass and Tim hung out the closer they were getting. At first Cass thought she was using him to get more information on Paul and Danielle. But that’s not what it ended up being. No one really gave to hoots about both of them. They each had lost someone in their life that was important to them. In the end Cass is there for Tim. And she is not just there to help him talk to his dead mother, but to save Tim. This is another good book that everyone should read! =)

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever's power increase, Damen's begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.
   Depserate to save him, Ever travels tot he mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen's past--the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden--but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With approaching blue moon hearlding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them--or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker by the day....

I have to many favorites now that I can't even count! This is another book by Alyson Noel. I really enjoyed her first book Evermore of the immortals series. I couldn't wait to see what happened with Ever and Damen. I would reccomend this book! Its was a slow start a first but i liked it. Throughout the book Ever and Damen are fighting to be together. But when Damen is growing weaker and ignoring Ever she knows hes not doing it on purpose. Hes not the same Damen and she fights for him and has to make a difficult decision between him and her family. I felt that Ever did a really good job dealing with everything that any normal person probably wouldn't be able to handle! My favorite part would have to be when Ever is finding everything about her and Damens past in Summerland. There were many intresting parts that kept me hooked on the book! 

The only thing that i didn't like about the book was when they introduced Roman into the book. It took me at least three or four chapters to understand why he was siginificant into the book.

Blue Moon is a GREAT addition to the immortal series!
