Reread: Glass Houses - Rachel Caine
Just don't stay out after dark.
Morganville is a small town filled with unusual characters - when the sun goes down, the bad come out. In Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows - one that will spill out into the bright light of day.
For Claire Danvers, high school was hell, but college may be murder. It was bad enough that she got on the wrong side of Monica, the meanest of the school's mean girls, but now she's got three new roommates, who all have secrets of their own. And the biggest secret of all isn't really a secret, except from Claire: Morganville is run by vampires, and they are hungry for fresh blood...

My Second Opinion:
Before I started blogging I was always rereading my favourite books but now I find I have so many new books on my to read pile or wish list that I very rarely have time to pick up something I've already read. Since I'm taking part in the Morganville Vampires reading challenge hosted by Jo at Ink and Paper I thought I should probably start off by rereading Glass Houses though. To be honest it was probably a bit too soon to reread the story and I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I did the first time around. As I only read it for the first time last November I still remembered what happened too well so there were no surprises and I found myself getting a bit bored as I was reading.
Please don't take that as a negative against the book though, I really enjoyed Glass Houses the first time around & think I'd have loved it just as much if I'd waited until I had forgotten more of the story before my reread! I'm having trouble thinking of anything else to say about the story that I didn't include in my original review which you can read here and shows just how much I enjoyed it. Now I'm looking forward to continuing the series and spending more time in Morganville with Claire and her friends.
