    One thought on “Hush”

    1. (Read using Kindle Unlimited)This was a good sequel, and I’m looking forward to the final book in the series.I liked Bluebell in this book and I felt really sorry for her and the way Aspen treated her. The memory tampering drugs were pretty scary too.The storyline in this was pretty good, although there was once again quite a lot of information in here. I did think that it was presented in a much better way though, and it didn’t feel info-dumpy. Lots of important questions were raised in thi [...]

    2. Actual rating - 3.25This was an okay read, but i didn't like it quite as much as book one.I felt quite sorry for Bluebell. The situation regarding her real mother was tough, and the memory tampering drugs weren't fun either. This one wasn't as slow in the first half as the first one was which was good, but i just couldn't enjoy it as much as i enjoyed Lush.I'm looking forward to seeing how everything ends in book three.

    3. I read and greatly enjoyed the first book, Lush, earlier this year, and so when I realized the second book in the series was out I picked it up right away. I read the book in just over a day, partly because I read very quickly, partly because it was a compelling read, and partly because it was only 150 pages (25% shorter than the first book). I see that the author is noting that this is a "serialized story" meant to be compared more with an episodic TV show than with a movie, but also that there [...]

    4. I wanted to really really enjoy this sequel: but it was much slower paced with good but repetitive world building but the suspense and the characters ended up flat. Why? Nothing much really happens. Good thing it was only 150 pages. Hush is the continuation of a dystopian society known as Concord which is divided into 4 areas: Goverment, Medicine with Drug Development, Business and Agriculture. While there has been great advances after getting rid of illness through vaccination, early and consis [...]

    5. "Hush" is a great follow up to "Lush." Bluebell has experienced a rude awakening. She now knows that as a child she was stolen from her real mother in a power play by Aspen and her grandfather. Aspen or 'Mother' as she demands to be called attempts to erase Blue's memories. However, with the help of her friend, Thorn and her secret tablet.The council has sent Blue on a three week tour of districts 2-4. Cimmaron, her trusty advisor accompanies her as well as her new chauffeur, Gill. While on thei [...]

    6. In my review of Lush, the first installment in this dystopian serial, I discussed how its world was unlike a typical dystopia. The primary difference is that the standard of living is high, lacking the squalor and poverty of a normal dystopia. But like most dystopias, life is far from ideal. In Concord, life appears good, with a healthcare system that provides a long, good life. However, with the government also making many life decisions for the people, maybe it isn’t so good after all.As the [...]

    7. YA DystopianPart two of the Lush seriesWhile on her Lush ambassador tour, Bluebell learns the truth of her birth from those in secret trying to help her as well as bring down the Concord Council. Bluebell finds out her real mother was banished by Aspen, the cold woman who has claimed her right as mother so her own infertility would not be discovered and so her family could advance. Bluebell is forced to cut her goodwill tour short, however, when a so-called rebel bombing occurs. On her way home, [...]

    8. This second installment in the trilogy details Bluebell's training and gala before she starts off on her first work trip. She soon discovers Concord is not all that she once thought it to be, that many of those she once thought for her are against her, and that she's not who she thought she was. Such leads to the fall of many things in her eyes. I really enjoyed this installment; I think I would have preferred it more had she been around those she holds dear. There were numerous errors in this b [...]

    9. Hush left me with many unanswered questions. I want to know what is happening and I want to know now!! But that is what is so great about this series. She leaves you with questions that you have no answers too. Bluebell is such a strong character and I can't help to feel related to her. She is always having to prove herself to her peers, to the other citizens of concord. There seems to be a twist coming up in later books. If you haven't picked up the first book "Lush", you really should. Then gr [...]

    10. Not very good. There are far too many editing mistakes to really enjoy it. Plus the story seemed to meander rather than push forward with momentum and purpose. The once interesting themes did not develop but continued to ask the same questions originally raised without any resolution -- or any in sight.

    11. This book was significantly shorter than the first book and lacked a full plot. I am not sure why this book ended where it did. I almost feel like the book ended as a chapter would and not a book. Nothing was resolved and there was not a cliffhanger to lead into the next book. Very odd, in my opinion. I am however reading the third book now and truly like this series.

    12. The second book was repetitive of the first. I like the writing style and she is better and describing a scene than a lot of authors but on the tour, there so much more we could have scene instead of the same type of people all saying the same thing repeatedly. I would have loved to see the poor, unhappy, etc

    13. Liked this second book. The ending wasn't as rushed as the first book, so that was good. Both were quick reads. Very similar to Hunger Games and Divergent.

    14. You will not be disappointed by the Lush series, such a unique and fresh concept for a storyline! S.L. writing style and characters are amazing!
