    1. pg 15:"What normal girl loved physics? Abnormal ones. Ones who were not ever going to be hot. And face it, being hot? That was what life was all about."Yeah, well, no thanks. Abandoned.

    2. OK, I tried reading it, I just can't buy into the premiseClaire Danvers is a prodigy student. At 16, she is a university freshman and having awful dorm problems. In fact, in the first chapter, she is beaten by a group of mean girls, thrown down the stairs, and warned that she would be killed next time she is seen around the campus. She is unconscious for a while, and when she is found by another student, nobody calls the police. Even the campus doctor who checks Claire's many bruises, split lip [...]

    3. Alright, so let's do this hmm? Please excuse my language. -___-Oh my ▬ How is ▬ I mean what?! Claire, Claire dear child WHY THE HELL ARE YOU SO STUPID?! I'm sorry let me explain.- Girl goes to school, encounters psycho ass bullies. they make fun of her. - Girl gets punched and pushed down the stairs; suffers injuries.

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestReading GLASS HOUSES is a lot like watching a horror movie. The main character is an idiot, and all plot development in the story line requires that you suspend your disbelief about said idiocy. What makes it hard, though, is that Claire Danvers is branded as a "genius." She's sixteen - "sixteen and a half," she'll be quick to tell you - and yet, got accepted to Harvard, MIT, Yale, and all these other great schools, but her parents don't want her [...]

    5. So. I've always been a lovey dovey vampire lover as opposed to the GRR, I'M AN EVIL BASTARD kind. But, as it turns out.I fell really hard for this book. And, instead of sexy bites shared between vampire lovers (or, rather, a human AND vamp), we had the scary as shit psycho vampires. Honestly, I was disappointed at first. I mean, really. Who doesn't like a little neck biting action? WHO I ASK, WHO?! But as the story progressed, it gave me something.a little more.-and Dad, who was glowering at Sha [...]

    6. I am absolutely in love with this series! For me, it is a really big shame that i did not find it sooner.There is a lot that i could say about this first book in the series, and believe me i would if i could, but i would probably never stop talking and i would go over the word limit for reviews.First of all the story kicked off to a really good start. It was a thrilling and exciting first chapter. When i opened the book i saw that the chapters were like 20-30 pages long. For me, i was really wor [...]

    7. 3.5 Good To Be Different StarsI first read the Morganville Vampires series about four years ago, at the beginning of my experience with Paranormal and Urban-Fantasy. At the time I though Twilight and The House of Night were THE SHIT so this wasn't my favorite because it's much darker. But now, 4 years later, I still like this when I can't even stand to read the first book of the other two series.The Morganville Vampires series has its problems. The writing needs a little effort to like and Clair [...]

    8. Some might really like the story, but there were too many times the plot read as if it was tossed together like a bad salad & cheap tricks were used to get our heroine in & out of trouble. Worse, new issues & fixes magically appear/disappear, while parents conveniently do the same. Worst of all, the end is a super cliff hanger, the kind that screams "Read my next book or you're doomed to never know how it turns out." It's a shame. The book had some redeeming features & could have [...]

    9. So let's talk a little about young adult paranormal fiction. Let's talk a little about suspension of disbelief.For the fantasy writer, suspension of disbelief is your best friend. Your job as an author is to do such a good job creating your world so your reader thinks, "Vampires, werewolves, things that go bump in the night, sure, I buy it!"There are lots of ways to go about doing this, but part of the bedrock of a good set up is that it's completely believable. Part of what makes good horror an [...]

    10. For anyone looking for good, brainless, PG-13 rated vampire fun, this is probably the book for you. The author has a straightforward writing style and tells a straightforward story about an unpopular girl who gets the short end of the stick in a town ruled by vampires, until she makes some oh my god like totally cool and hottt friends. (Yes, "hot" needs three t's--one for each friend.)The book has a slightly juvenile tone, which is ironic since the main character--a brainiac who is sixteen years [...]

    11. Wow! I really, really liked this book! I don't know why it took me so long to start reading them, but I can tell you that once you don't want to stop! If you want an action packed vampire/ghost read with a couple of HOT roommates(Shane and Michael) than this book is it. I also need to mention the other roommate, Eve, who likes the whole Goth thing.Claire Danvers is enrolled in college rearly due to her academic achievements. She's 16, nearly 17 which she likes to remind people. Her fir [...]

    12. Claire is a sixteen year old brainiac, already in College. She got accepted to MIT and Yale, but her parents didn’t let her go because they were too far from home (huh?), so she ended up in Morganville, Texas.Being a brainiac means of course that she’s abnormal. She likes physics. What normal girl likes physics? (huh?)She gets badly beaten by a group of mean girls at campus who threaten to kill her. However, that doesn’t mean that she’ll call her parents and request a school change, beca [...]

    13. That was so much fun, I seriously loved it. If you're a fan of The Vampire Diaries (the show, not sure about the books since I haven't read them) I think you will love this because it has a lot of the same elements: vampires? guys? CHECK. action-packed ass-kicking? LOTSazy twists and turns? YUP.I seriously want to start a campaign to get this series made into a show. I'm really excited to start the next book in the series.

    14. After reading Twilight, I can't forgive myself of buying the expensive hardback set and for the punishment I won't read any paranormal books or vampire related books. But after I met this girl in she recommended a lot of young adult paranormal books and I was like Huh?, no idea of the books she mentioned.I met her last December, face-to-face, and I'm glad she include one of her vampire books. No doubt I grab it and hide it, I know nobody is interested in reading the book except me, the girl and [...]

    15. I found this one quite entertaining and engaging. More so than I expected to. I thought the story was an interesting concept and I love that the ending left me wanting to delve right into the next one-- literally ending in the middle of an action scene. I really like Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael as characters and I'm eager to see what happens to them next! I wish Claire wasn't quite so young-- I think that would be a little easier to swallow although nothing unsavory happened. There were quite [...]

    16. 5 Stars: I know my reviews are usually non-descriptive this one may obtain spoilers in my rant. However, do not get me wrong I enjoyed the book and the colorful cast of Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve and the turmoil that seems to find them.It took me forever to locate this series. I was shocked to find this series in the YA section of my local library. Everyone that had recommended the series to me was adult. I was expecting something completely different. After reading the first Chapter, I was [...]

    17. Wow, what a beginning. This story, these characters; they've totally hooked me. It is another vampire story, but it doesn't seem rehashed to me at all. Maybe it was the characters, the creepy twists, or just the fantastic narrative voice. Claire Danvers is having a heck of a time at her crummy dorm. A smart, ordinary girl trying to rough it at her Texas college away from home, she is constantly harassed, sometimes to the point of serious injury, by the vicious cliques of popular girls. So when s [...]

    18. There's math to these stars.Here goes:+1 for being written by Rachel Caine, right off the bat. I genuinely enjoyed Ill Wind; it was a creative, rip-roaring five-chapter venture into a new kind of urban fanatasy, and it was cool. I didn't even mind the hot tub scenes, and the ending was acceptable. I've also read one of Ms. Caine's short stories set in Morganville, in an anthology, and thought it was interesting and that I'd like to know more about the series.+1 for rendering fairly logical vampi [...]

    19. 3.5 It was cute stars So, I'm not sure if I've ever divulged this on , but my career goal is to one day become a Young Adult Librarian. Because of this I try to read a wide range of YA so I know what to recommend to teens. Glass Houses is one of the books that I normally wouldn't read, but decided to anyway. You know, for the teens ;-)Glass Houses is about Claire, a teenage genius who finds herself in college at the young age of sixteen. Claire is being bullied in the dorms by some fairly sociop [...]

    20. Η πλοκή είναι αφελέστατη, αλλα η ιστορία είναι διασκεδαστική, οπότε περνάει αρκετά ευχαριστα η ωρα! Αυτά!

    21. Why Glass Houses is a good book and you should give it a tryLet me start by giving thanks to my dear friend Alk who forced me to give this book a try. If it weren’t for her I wouldn’t have given this book a second glance. You can probably blame it on the cover and on all those negative reviews that are going around .Speaking of which, I need to clear out a few things. There are many people in my friend list who absolutely love this book. And there are others who loathe the mere sight of it. [...]

    22. This was a really quick, fun read and whilst it may not have technically ticked all the boxes I enjoyed it immensely. It's engaging, dark and tense, kind of 'Mean Girls' meets supernatural world. Claire is a 16 year old brainiac attending college in Morganville Texas, a small town where vampires rule the roost, and there's nothing 'nice' about these vamps. When Claire gets on the wrong side of Monica, queen bitch bee of college, and her life is threatened she desperately seeks off-campus housing [...]

    23. Actual rating: 4.5 stars.It seems I read a lot of vampire books these days. In fact, I'm going through my TBR pile in order so it's not my fault I had three vampire books one after another. I really liked two and third is currently being read, so we'll see. I liked this book very much. Claire wasn't annoying like I expected, though she seemed like it when I first started reading. I liked most of the characters and everything went smoothly. Though it did end on a major cliffhanger, which I really [...]

    24. I really like the whole idea of the glass house and the protection it offers. I think I'm pretty much Team Michael. Love the head vampire lady. The scenes she was in were really riveting!

    25. I am hooked on the Morganville Vampire series! No, no, no you don't understand that's not a good thing. Now I'm compelled to run off and invest in the other 6 books that are waiting for me at the bookstore! Very much a predicament when you have so many unread books sitting on your bookshelf, but that's just how good this series is. It's the kind of book that clears a path on your TBR list and shoots straight to the top. I loved it! The characters were engaging and interesting, the writing was bo [...]

    26. I'm addicted. It's official I LOVE THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES. I need to admit something though I am awful at sticking to series But I truly believe that I will read all of the books in this one. I loved the characters, plot, and everything else involved in this delicious book.

    27. QUICK OVERVIEW: If you love books that have dangerous vampires around every corner, a quick moving and realistic plot, and characters that will have you packing up your home to move in next door to them, then you will love Glass Houses. Heck, even if you don't love all of those things, I'm pretty sure you'll love Glass HousesVIEW: Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! How did I not pick this series up sooner?I fell in love with this series after the very first page, and I'm not entirely sure why. [...]

    28. This book convinced me that I'm not a fan of Rachel Caine's style of storytelling. She's very hard on her protagonists (killing them, mentally and physically abusing them, etc), and she loves cliff-hanger endings. Both are negatives for me. The timeline irritates me as well - maybe a week? It reminded me of House of Night, which I hate. I was equally irritated by the one and a half books I've read of Weather Wardens, so I think I should give up on this author. Too bad - the premise of the Morgan [...]

    29. This book was just awesome!I love the instant chemistry the four friends have! Claire, Eve, Michael and Shane are all great, great characters!The writing is stylish and the plot and wit of it all is so much fun!I love finding new series to love, and The Morganville Vampires Series is just the blast that I needed!
