Why this book?
The Morganville Vampires Series was one of the first series I read with more than three books to it's name. You could say it sunk it's teeth into me.
Glass Houses centres around Claire Danvers' need to strike out on her own, to step out of the college dorms and away from the harsh treatment of the popular kids.
It's such a normal situation. We all know that living in the real world is nothing like the shiny bubble of a college or university campus. But, what would you do if you discovered that your new home, and housemates, weren't quite what you thought?
What makes this book is the quirky characters—one of which inspired one of my own characters—that are equally hilarious and insane. The story really pulled me in and made me feel like I was uncovering the towns secrets.
