Review: Crescendo (hush hush #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Description (from Goodreads)
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

I'm not sure why I hadn't read this before now. I think that maybe I was distracted by other series. I remember I really liked Hush Hush, and I remember looking for reviews for Crescendo. I just never got round to it I suppose.

I only remembered about it now because I'd just finished just finished Torment. I just hoped would be better.

I found it a little difficult to get into a first. I couldn't remember why I liked it, and nothing much about the characters at all.
I had to read up on it just to get everything straight in my head. I shouldn't have bothered. Nora is the stupidest person I've ever read about, and Vee is just a pain in the arse. She has to be the worst excuse of a friend ever. I can't believe I ever liked these people. Reading this gave me a headache. I don't even know where to start... oh wait, how about the fact that I just wanted to punch them all in the face all the way through? I've never swore so much reading a book in my life.

The ending was only slightly better as I didn't see it coming (forgive me I had a headache). Although I think the plot was written for 5 year olds who wouldn't question or even notice that nothing made sense.

I could go on about patch, or about the worse love triangle in the history of love triangles but I can't really be bothered. I've had enough frustration for one day.

Rating: 2/6 - Struggled to Finish
