Review: Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Review: I finally started reading this series after a while of moaning I wanted to. I always set my heart on what book I will read after the one I am currently reading, but this time I wanted to read a few. I did an eenie meenie mynie mo to the ones I was desperate to read, this way it would be fair and I wouldn't be moaning everytime I chose one. But it wasn't fair. Everytime one got eliminated I wasn't happy, so I kept doing it again. I finally came to my decision of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and I've been wanting to read that for a long while too, and even thoough I've only read the slightest bit, it's amazing and so is Erin Morgenstern's style of writing. But I was not in the mood to read it, so I dragged it on to read and I never give up on reading a book because I feel I have let the book down - weird, huh? - but I put The Night Circus down because I honestly had my heart set on Glass Houses, and I am so glad I stopped reading The Night Circus because Glass Houses was addicting. I like Rachel Caine's style of writing because she can put Claire's thoughts in that can really make you laugh. Whereas some books can be quite formal and you don't really get a connection with the characters. But with Rachel Caine's writing you do, and I really like that, it's different.
Shane. Oh Shane, I adore you! Shane is such a sweet character and protecting of Claire, he is the one full of all the jokes and can be the cocky character, but in a good way. He would be an awesome friend - maybe boyfriend if you're lucky ;) - to have in real life. I want a Shane Collins. Micheal, he was a very tough guy when we first met him. He wasn't very friendly at all, but once we got over all that hardness of him, he is a very sweet guy and puts his friends before himself. The same for Shane as well. I like guys like that.
Eve, she just had me cracking up at some of the things she said, and for Claire's thoughts, they did as well.
I have the next five books in the series awaiting me, so I shall now start reading The Dead Girls' Dance. AND OMG, the ending of GLASS HOUSES!!!! Oh dear, damn cliffhanger, but he can't die. He's a main character anyway...right? :)
