The Long Story ? - It's no secret that Vampire fiction overpopulates the YA genre, two years after the success of Twilight and we are still getting new take ons of Vampire every single year. Whether it be sparkly vampires or super powered vampires or vampires who get sick of being vampires and turn human, every author has a new take on the definition of a vampire.
So when Morganville re-visits the classic take, the Dracula take. It was more than refreshing to read! As crazy as it sounds, it's actually a nice change to read about vampires who aren't all good-looking and who aren't all about falling in love with Humans!
The concludes my first pointer about how awesome Glass House. It's not original but it's refreshing because it's how vampires are supposed to be opposed on the new take ones where vampires are harmless and sparkly ( I love Twilight). Another reason why it's so awesome? The characters.
The relationship between Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael is really touching. I have never had room mates before but the relationship between the four is what I would imagine it to be. The friendship and more-than friends ship between them four is amazing. Each character has a different personality, they might hate each other at times but they still friends and care about each other.
Then, there is the plot. So at the start Claire was pretty pathetic, she was bullied and cried alot. Then she meets her three new roomies who introduce her to Morganvilles not-so-secret secret, the vampires. From there it gets really interesting whether it be fighting the vamps or fighting the undeniable attraction.Fats-paced and filled with quirky and comfortable writing.
Overall, I loved it. it was addictive and refreshing. I couldn't stop turning the pages one after another. Whether it just me or not, I find it hard to find a book that I can turn the page one after another without losing interest, I found it in Glass House. This one goes on your TBR pile, lovelies!
