I grew up with stories and these stories shaped my life - the ones I read and the ones I wrote. Stories still continue to inspire my life. Here are my thoughts on reading, writing, and life.

Book Review - Glass Houses
Book Review - Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Glass Houses is the first book in the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, about college freshman Claire Danvers and her arrival to Morganville Texas, a small college town with many secrets. Claire starts in the college dorms, but after being bullied there, she is forced to move off campus, and that's when the secrets of Morganville start revealing themselves to her.
The story revolves around vampires, but also has strong attachments to young adult themes like moving away from home, first love, and finding one's place in the world. Eventhough it is Young Adult, it has strong crossover appeal into the adult market as well.
This book is a great read that will delight fans of Twilight and Vampire Academy - highly recommended read for fans of young adult paranormal/romance.
