Since there isn’t an endless supply of Becca Fitzpatrick books to keep us satisfied we thought it would be fun to start something called Becca’s Bookshelf, a place where Becca can share some of the books she pulls from her very own bookshelf. They may be old titles or new titles, even some that are just coming out. While there won’t be a set schedule with Becca’s Bookshelf, we plan on having some fun features from time to time, like chats with the authors, giveaways, interviews, and even chances to chat with Becca herself about the books.
And we’re extremely excited to kick off Becca’s Bookshelf with an awesome, debut, YA fantasy called Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins. Hex Hall will be officially hitting stores next week, but you can Pre-Order your copy today!
Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father — an elusive European warlock — only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
.....Stopped by one of Becca's signings in CA. It's great that they finally got to meet!! We also heard that he signed a few books for some fans while he was there
He's also recently done a Sketchers fashion show & a K-Swiss commercial! We will post pics from them soon !!

While I was Googling, I found a lot of people asking on Yahoo, in forums, and on blogs a question that probably hits a lot of your minds: "What do I read while I wait for Crescendo?" Good Q. When I set Hush, Hush down myself, I had no idea what to follow it up with.
But I just finished a book I think Hush, Hush fans would love. It's called The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, and it has a bad boy who loves killing things with his frost sword. Paranormal, with dark romance and humor. Definitely something I would recommend to HH fans.
And, of course, the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare has that same supernatural, adventurous feel.
What would you recommend to other fans of Hush, Hush, and what have you been reading while waiting for Crescendo? Comment and let us know!
You could even check out some Hush, Hush fan fiction. Weed through to find a good one, or write your own!
And don't forget to check out February's Featured Fiction of the Month discussion in the forums for Raven by Allison van Diepen! Enter to win a copy right on the forum or head to the library and snag it off the shelves so you can participate in the discussion!
And, before I sign off, check out this article about angels trending - it mentions Hush, Hush's sales and popularity, as well as Fallen Archangel.
