During the month of October, I asked a few of my friends, what their favorite Monster is (some are not so scary) and what book(s) they read that they loved that associated with the Monster they picked. The answers are great and the recommendation are even better! Enjoy!
Werewolves and Bitten
Shifters are one of my favorite paranormal creatures to read about. I always thought there was something magical and amazing about being able to change your shape and experience life from a different point of view and shape. I image it would be nice to change into an animal shape and no one know that it’s you, the places you could go and how the world would look different. It just seems it would be cool to change into an animal and I like reading how different authors write werewolves or shifters. I also like seeing how shifter characters usually aren’t fully human and have some animal traits as well and how that shines through in their human personality as well.
I’ve read a lot of werewolf and shifter books over the years, but when asked for my favorite werewolf book or series, I would mention Kelley Armstrong her Otherworld series. Bitten is the first book in the series and after reading it I was hooked and read a lot of the rest of the series soon after it until I caught up and had to wait for the next books to release.
I love how Armstrong writes her werewolves. I can’t even pinpoint one thing about how she writes them that works for me. It’s everything. How the characters have a bit of their werewolf nature even in human form, how she describes the shifting, how the shifting takes time and the scenes that she writes from the wolf point of view are always amazing.
Bitten will always have a special place for me, as it was one of the books that introduced me to shifters, urban fantasy and Kelley Armstrong. And all three of those are some of my favorite books to read. I also remember fondly how I read this series during my university study and how I devoured book after book until I had to wait for the next one to get released.
