Silence Book Trailer--A Review

It's been a while and I wanted to get back into reviewing book trailers, so I thought today would be a good day to start doing it again. Why? Because the third book in one of my all time favorite series is coming out tomorrow!!  Yes, I am VERY excited.

I love me some Patch.

But first! Did you see that I hit 300 followers?? I feel like I should celebrate in some way. What do you guys think? Should I do a giveaway or another blogfest/contest with amazing prizes?

Let us ponder on this while we watch the trailer for Silence, by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Don't forget to come back here for the review, though. :)

From Goodreads:

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever

My Thoughts:

All the trailers have been essentially the same. There's the same feather falling from the sky and the same music. And to be honest, I like the continuity. When watching them consecutively, the tension increases and you really get a good idea of what the relationship between Patch and Nora is all about. Plus, the music is great and I don't think anyone can watch this trailer and NOT know it's about a fallen angel falling in love with a girl.

That being said, I don't know if I like seeing Patch and Nora's faces. They'd always been pretty hidden in the previous two trailers and they don't really look like how I'd always pictured them, so it's kind of disappointing. Of course, they could also look exactly how someone else pictured them because this stuff is all very subjective. But for me, it's disappointing.

What do you guys think? If you'd never read the Hush, Hush series before, would you pick up the first book today based on this trailer? Or if you'd read the first two books and weren't blown away enough to really be anticipating the third one, would you change your mind after seeing this?


  1. Apparently I'm not allowed to see the trailer because I'm not in the US -_-... Anyway, I totally agree with you about seeing their faces, Emily.

    I loved "Hush, Hush" but I was disappointed with "Crescendo" (I'll post the review in the next days) so, I'm really hoping to find the magic of the previous book in "Silence" again!

  2. Weeelll, to be honest, I didn't really like Hush Hush. I picked it up because of the gorgeous cover and because I hadn't yet read a fallen angel story. I have heard good things about Crescendo, though, so maybe I'll try the series again.

    Yeah, not a fan of the faces. Maybe that was because the books kind of left the actual faces up to the reader? I imagined Nora MUCH differently. Patch looks...fallen, lol.

  3. Congrats on the 300. That is awesometastical. If you want a copy of my book to give away, I'll send you two. :)

  4. Very nice on reaching 300 followers :) I'm adding Elemental to my goodreads list.

  5. i haven't read this series, but based on that trailer alone, i wouldn't even consider picking it up. the music was admittedly awesome, and i love the falling feather, but other than that, it's like a bunch of shots of bare man chest, and faces. :( not too excited for that.

  6. Yay, congrats to you on hitting 300 followers!! The trailer was cool, although not much diff from the first one in the series, if I remember right. It's not too informative, but maybe they're going for a "mood" instead. :) I haven't read HUSH, HUSH, no.

  7. I don't like YA and modern fantasy (for female and teen readers) so I'm not the right person for this question :)
    Congrats on 300 new minions :)

  8. This book is amazing and suprising. Just like Hush Hush and Cresendo i couldnt putit down! I liturally would wake up extra early on the week days just so i could have time to read it. And on the weekends I would stay in bed and read all day. I LOVE patch


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
