Glass Houses- The first in the Morganville Vampire series

Summary- Welcome to Morganville, Texas. Just don't stay out after dark.

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school's social scene: somewhere less than zero.

When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life. But they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.

Thoughts- I really enjoyed this trip to Morganville, Texas. Claire Danvers has made some enemies in her dorm and she finds herself in the Glass House with Shane, Eve and Michael. While Michael appears to be a normal teenager, he never leaves the Glass House and wakes up only at night. Eve is your typical goth chick with her spiky, black hair and her black lipstick. Claire finds herself in quite the mess with the vampires of Morganville. I loved the premise of this book and it played out very nicely. Eve is a fun character and Shane and his goofy, bad boy attitude will grow on you. Michael and his mysterious ways set up some plot twists that will leave you breathless. The second Morganville vampire book is called Dead Girls’ Dance. I highly recommend having this book available after finishing Glass Houses because it leaves you with a cliff hanger ending. You will not be able to keep Glass Houses out of your mind until you have Dead Girls’ Dance in your hands.

Overall- I enjoyed Glass Houses immensely. It’s a fun novel with enough mystery and suspense to put you on the edge of your seat. I didn’t want to put this book down and when I did, it was all I could think about until it was finished. It’s a very quick read and I highly recommend it.

Cover- The cover is great. Very catchy and draws the reader in. It’s not too plain and the colors are bright.
