About the book:
(Taken from
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 come out fighting when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood...
Omg! Glass Houses is addictive! I was unable to put it down from start to finish and only to immediately pick up book 2!
Possibly the best book in a series I've ever read in a long time and I cannot wait to read them all! Rachel Caines writing will leave you wanting or quite literally craving more and more!
New student Claire is getting hassled by quite an evil girl Monika plus her Monickettes! I HATE HER! Although it is obvious some are only doing it for their own protection but others for enjoyment.
Shane... I LOVE HIM! Protective, boy next door, sexy, loving, caring! A perfect guy but I did get confused about him wondering if he was a vampire or something else? hmm... No idea but I've no idea why I'm thinking a wolf or something I think it was the *little pup* comment made towards him. But omg! what was with his dad? and that like electric shot type thing? hmm...
Eve! You just have to love her! She's awesome! Although I so want to know more of her story as she's really interesting.
Michael.. Is it possible to have two perfect male characters in a book? There has just got to be some sort of change or something so him and Eve can go out in the day time and live happily ever after!
Shane and Claire... sooo cute! I <3 them together! But... I'm loving the slowness between them.. It seems real and their connection is real!
I need to read on in this series NOW! I absolutely loved this book! Everyone needs to read these now if they haven't!
Have you read Glass Houses? What did you think?


  1. *reader girl squee* I LOVED this one too. It was incredibly addicting and it doesn't ever let up. I flew through them and was like stalking my bookstore a couple times waiting for them to open. LOL

    All those things you said... yup. Awesome read. Glad you enjoyed it Kerry-Ann!!

    Happy reading!

    1. Omg!! The very same! I've been looking everywhere for the latest book then forgot about ONLINE! I couldn't believe all the time I'd bn searching it lol. The series really is amazing! :) Thank you so much for your comment. :) (And sorry for late reply.!) xx

    2. LOL I was so stubborn about buying online but finally did for a couple of them. I still have I think the last 3 to go. I keep putting them off though because I know I'll FLY through them and then be out. ::snort::
