Reviews for Crescendo
did not enjoy
I thought this was even worse than the first one, the characters have no morals and I find myself all of them and their relationships, this was just stupid by Naomi Impellizzeri
I agree with Lydia's review - Nora is annoying!! AND what sort of a name is Patch far out! I read these types of books because I enjoy the tormented love story and the ups and downs and escapism they present but this 2nd book was just annoying!
In saying I have to concede defeat in that I will most def end up reading the next one in the hope that the series gets better and we see some real patch (ugh) and Nora action. by Melissa Rogers
Wow. Blood pumping, adrenaline rushing and mind reeling. Oh, angst. Yes, definitely lots of angst and frustration. It has everything. The whole story was shrouded in mystery and it makes you think "Is he really the one?".
Urgh, just when I was finally savoring the delicious make up scene of Patch and Nora, the plot twisted and ended at a cliffhanger. A MAJOR and INFURIATING cliffhanger. I read the last chapter so many times until I think I can tell what comes first.
Dammit, Fitzpatrick is good. Bloody good. by Joy Chuah Xin Yee

Review of Crescendo
I'm in that minority that really was not all that impressed by Hush, Hush. I remember feeling giddy with glee when I saw it was in at the library and rushing home to read it. It was lunch time and I spread the book out on the table and dove in, hungrily devouring every word.
... but then I started to get disappointed. Why? I didn't like Nora. (And don't even get me started on Patch's name).
Time has passed. My feelings of dislike have faded somewhat and Hush, Hush has risen a little bit to a more "okay" place on my list. I lingers there with a few other books that are quite popular and it hovers over some others that I really could not stand.
Crescendo was like a slap in the face. Not only was my dislike of Nora brought back.. but now she's displaying angst and emo-teenage-heartbreak worthy over only the queen of such herself, Bella Swan. The only reason this book rates as high as I've given it is because the rest of the plot (such as it was) was interesting and I liked seeing the bad boys get the spotlight here. But Nora? My goodness, someone needs to slap that girl.
There is probably a 5% chance I'll read the final book. Even the cliffhanger wasn't enough to get me to be interested in reading it. But... who knows, maybe I'll read some truly horrendous YA books between now and then and Crescendo, like Hush, Hush will slowly raise in status as time passes by. by Lydia Presley
