Why do you think the Nazis were so worried about what books people read? Are book dangerous? If so why? To whom are they dangerous? Conversely, can books be liberating? How? Share your thoughts on this subject.
In my opinions there’s no way for a book to be dangerous unless its hurled at your as a projectile. Books share information and opinions about a topic. The Nazi party probably looked at the information some of the books said and say it as against there vision or spreads false information. If a book were “Dangerous” it would only be dangerous to your vision or purposes your trying to accomplish. What is liberating freeing a place or people from enemy occupation. So for a book to be liberating it would have to convince people that these people are good and imprisoning them is bad. If your worried about the kind of books people read then your worried about your vision being seen a evil or peoples opinion changed.

Quote: “If I sacrifice my blood, Patch live and you’ll die.”
Context: Nora and Patch have been chased around there school by the main villain of the book and Nora is stuck up on the rafter of the gym the only escape it to jump and die so Patch can live or get killed my the villain so Patch will be tortured for eternity.
This makes me think: What would you do in this situation it seem obvious doesn’t it, but would you really do it. Consider how painful it would be to sacrifice your blood for someone. If your answer is still yes I would then who would you do it for. Family, friend, stranger. I think it would be reasonable and easy to sacrifice your self for someone you know well but for someone you have no idea who it is would it still be as easy for you.

Quote: “I know how to get your wings back.”
Context: Nora is looking deeper into the back story and private life of one of the other big characters. She finds a record of sorts of the last 8 months of this character and there interactions with and angle named Dabria.
This makes me think: How would it feel to finally learn the background of some you’ve searching into but its not what you expect to see. How would It make you feel to learn someone you know or love is not who you think, but is actual what you feared. How would it feel to be told that that person was a fallen angel looking for a way back. I think that it would be kind of creepy to find out that someone you thought you knew pretty well is not what you thought at all.

Quote: “Did you follow me?”
Context: In this point in the book Nora has had some creepy and disturbing interactions with shadowy figures and people in her life and believes Patch has a connection to these interactions as each time she has one of these it was either before or after seeing patch around.
This makes me think: Why would you confront someone you believe to be your stalker. You would have no idea how they would take it and why would they ever admit to being your stalker. If I had suspicions of someone being my stalker i wouldn’t confront them about it I would them my parents and get the authority to keep a close eye on the person I have suspicions about. Confronting someone like that could be potently dangerous and they could try something very stupid to try to though you off.

Quote: “Looking at the car now, it seemed impossible. No, t seemed crazy.”
Context: In the book the main character ,Nora , was driving her friends car when she hit someone on the road. The person the stood up and proceeded to destroy the driver side door. When see returned to her friend the car was completely fine.
This makes me think: How would it feel to run someone over with a car and have them get up and walk. Not only that but for them to start destroying the car to the point of bending the door of the car you don’t own. I would be completely freaked out that not only did they survive but have the energy to destroy the car but when you show someone else the damage doesn’t exist. That would be all sorts of scary and make me question my sanity.

What I read: I read Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Hush, Hush is Romance Fantasy book, it has 391 pages and I would give it a 9/10.
How it starts: The book starts with Nora Grey ,the main character, walking in to biology and the topic being human reproduction.
How it gets complicated: Upon the class starting the teacher makes a stunning comment. A new seating chart. This new seating chart introduces us to Patch. The class is assignment to get to know there partners better and report on it. Once Nora starts asking Patch questions Patch started to name facts about Nora that he shouldn’t know and it leads her to start searching more about him and try to find more about his private life.
What I liked: I really liked the growth of the characters and the twists of the story and mystery involved with it. The growth of the relationships of the characters is also really interesting.
What I disliked: The book plays around with your brain and the brain of the characters fairly often. The book also makes events that seem short take extremely long and long events short.
Who I recommend the book to. I recommend this book to any one who likes romance books, or interested in mysteries, or look into view of different religion.
