Contest: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick!

Now that the Twenty Boy Summer contest has concluded (winners posted soon!), I have another contest for a book that I LOVED! Hush, Hush lived up to all of my very high expectations... I was lucky enough to get a copy before it came out - and now I'm passing my luck on to one lucky reader out there! :)

For those of you who live in a cave and don't know what Hush, Hush is about, here is a summary:
"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."

This contest is only open to followers of The Hiding Spot. So if you want a shot at winning, head over to my sidebar and click the follow button! If you are already a follower, you're set!

For your entry to count, you MUST answer this question:

Patch, one of the main characters of Hush, Hush, is definitely swoonworthy. Who is your current character crush? (Don't forget to mention what book he/she is from and why you like that particular character!)

  12. Ooh who is my current swoonworthy. I still haven't found anyone to top Edward from the Twilight series. Seth is cool in Wicked Lovely, but no it is still Edward.

  13. I would have to agree with Kelsey about Owen from Just Listen. He was so adorable, and so sweet. Understanding, mysterious, bad boy, come on! And Edward from Twilight, of course!

  24. I usually crush on bad boys. They are so.. BAD, so I think that Patch and I will get along very well..
    But in this moment I got a crush on Peeta, one of the main characters of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. He is so sweet,so cute, so tender.. such a good boy!

  25. Okay, I have two crushes -- one is Eric Northman from The Southern Vampire Series, and the second is actually a TV show character, Dean Winchester, from Supernatural. I LOVE Eric Northman because he is a viking vampire who is the bad-boy-gone-good! I love Dean Winchester because he is a hot, demon-slaying dork!

  26. Btw, my email is: geekettesarbear(at)yahoo(dot)com

  27. Honestly, my current book crush is Edward Cullen. But since that's rather overdone and self-explanatory, I'll go with Peeta from The Hunger Games. He's really sweet and protects Katniss and still loves her even though she doesn't love him back.

    Thanks a lot!

  33. Aah, I'm sorry I can't choose a more dangerous/edgy swoon-worthy crush... but mine would have to be Eli from Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. He's got the haunted, brooding thing, but he's so complex and likable.

  39. I totally adore LJ Smith, and I always had a thing for Ash from Daughters of Darkness.. I'm a sucker for a tormented soul :L
    + Ed Westwick, aka Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, is seriously swoonworthy (:
    I think I squealed when I found out he's to play Heathcliff in the movie of Wuthering Heights (another of my literary crushes)
    Chace who? =)
    But for me the main one's gotta be Jace of Mortal Instruments fame - serious green eyes at Clary Fray! =L

    Thanks for holding this contest! I really really hope I win:)

  41. I have to say Jasper Hale from the Twilight books. He was a charming, charasmatic, skilled soldier with a quiet, stoic demeanour. He chose to break free from the violent life he was living after turning vampire by not drinking human blood. So we have a gorgeous, compassionate vampire with golden eyes and the ability to sense and manipulate your emotions -le sigh- AND HE'S FROM TEXAS! Texan accent, oh my! LOL

  43. Character Crush? YAY! My current fave is Marcus from the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. Oh my, he's definitely swoonworthy. I was squealing with delight when I was reading the last one of the series! I don't want to give much away...but all I can say is that he sang Barry Manilow's "I Can't Smile Without You" so whenever I listen to it, I SWOON!

  46. +1 I don't really have a book crush. I mean, when Twilight came out, Edward did seem pretty hot. But after they made the movie...I just don't feel that Rob is Edward, and once his picture is in my mind, or any of the characters, it's hard to get out. So, I guess I don't have a favorite at the moment.

    My current character crush is on Dan Devlin from Sleepless by Terri Clark. The reason for this is because he seems a little forbidden, he's caring, and he's least, it feels that way in the book. LOL!

    My Answer:

    Right now I have a crash on Michael from The Morganville Vampires series. Even being a vampire, he has all the kindness of a human being, and also, he's mature boy that cares for his friends, making all kind of sacrifices.

    (I'm the same from above, sorry!!)

  64. Dave the Laugh from Louise Rennison's "Confessions of Georgia Nicolson" series. He has a great sense of humor, is confident, definitely cocky (but not to the point where it makes him obnoxious. it's more of a silly cockiness), and just has such a fun personality. And he's not made out to be this gorgeous and perfect god which is one thing I loathe in YA books (I'm looking at you, Twilight).

    I also kind of love Ranulf from Claudia Gray's "Evernight" series. He may be one of the oldest vampires at Evernight but he's completely clueless when it comes to modern technology. My favorite part is when their teacher Mr. Yee is trying to explain what an iPod is and Ranulf is completely baffled. I find it so endearing.

    My most recent character crush would be Quentin Jacobsen from Paper Towns by John Green. Quentin has loved Margo ever since they were little. In their high school years, Quentin still hasn't told Margo. Then Margo leaves the school and Quentin sets out to find her. I love Quentin because even though he has no idea who Margo really is, he still sets all his time and effort towards her.

  67. My current crush is Peeta from The Hunger Games and Pudge from Looking for Alaska. Peeta is just sweet and really, truly loves Katniss. He's so nice. And Pudge..can't explain. :D I just love Looking for Alaska and I like all the characters. It would be too long to explain.
    Also, I must agree with ahoy-sailor, Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl is totally swoonworty! :D

    I love your review and I can't wait to read Hush Hush!

    My crush is with out a doubt Damen from Alyson Noel's Evermore. Come on, a hot, mysterious tall and dark stranger... a rich one at that with dark secrets... it's a no brainer for me. If he was real, I would look into his eyes and realize that I would do anything to lessen his pain!

  70. I forgot my email because I was so wrapped up in Damen! It is

    And hmmmmmm, that's a good question, does it have to be just one?
    I really like Peeta from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins because he'd been in love with Katniss from age 5, and that's just sweet.
    I also liked Dante from The Hourglass Door, being Italian and mysterious and an artist...
