Stacking the Shelves (3)


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

I only got one book this week, but it's better than nothing!


In Rachel Caine's town of Morganville, "there's always a surprise just around every dark corner" - and it usually involves the undead. Now these secrets come to light in the first two books of the Morganville Vampires series, together in one volume.
GLASS HOUSES

Morganville is a small college town in the heart of Texas that has its share of quirky characters - and some evil ones too. When student Claire Danvers moves off campus into one of Morganville's oldest houses, she finds that her roommates don't show many signs of life. But they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.


THE DEAD GIRLS' DANCE

Claire Danvers has her share of challenges - like living among creatures of the night. On the upside, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear at sunup) and a new boyfriend. Now a fraternity is throwing its annual Dead Girls' Dance and - surprise! - Claire and her equally outcast friend have been invited. When they find out why, all hell breaks loose, because this time both the living and the dead are ready to tear up the night.

I'm excited to read this because I've heard amazing things about this series!

Even though this isn't a book, I thought I'd share it since it is still book related. The Hunger Games came out on DVD today and I just had to buy it!


I also wanted to thank everyone for following me. As of Thursday, I've had 100 followers!

  1. I loved this series up til about book 6, I think I went off it when I found out how the town was ran. Then a few books after felt like they just filled a gap but then I felt they picked up a little again. I've had all kinds of feelings about this series.

  12. The Morganville vampires series is more *ahem* mature. Lol I felt so guilty when I snuck around the house with them. Now that I have my nook sneaking books around my mom is way easier. I hope you enjoy it. I never got to the end of the series because by the 5 or 6 book the plot started to bore me. I really liked the series in the beginning and I hope you enjoy it. I believe this is the first time I've ever heard about you and a book that isn't dystopian! I swear all the dystopian books that haven't come out yet are on your to-read list on GoodReads.
