Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: Werewolves

While putting together this week’s Listed post, I realized that I have read a whole lot more books with werewolves than I had thought. Which is surprising as I don’t always particularly enjoy werewolves. I mean, Lupin from Harry Potter is pretty awesome. As is Luke from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments book… but for the most part, they aren’t my favourite monster. Odd that I’ve read so many then.

Anyway, this week, I bring you ten books/series with werewolf characters!

  1. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. First book (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) Originally Published 1997. LT
  2. Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. First book (Bitten) Originally Published 2001. LT
  3. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. First book (City of Bones) Originally Published 2007. LT
  4. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. Originally Published 2006. LT
  5. Prowlers series by Christopher Golden. First book (Prowlers) Originally Published 2002. LT
  6. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. First book (Twilight) Originally Published 2005. LT
  7. Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause. Originally Published 1997. LT

    slightly off topic: this weekend I drank like I was 17 again. I’m not 17. If I think this is ever a good idea again, please remind me that it’s not.

    I’ve read many of these series too! There is one that you didn’t list that is fabulous, well, two actually: Wolfen (cannot remember the author, Whitley Streiber before he liked aliens, perhaps), and my all time favourite werewolf book, Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar. You have got to read that one at least!!! It is so good.

    I LOVE the Mercy Thompson series, agree that Lupin is HOT from both the books and the movies, and enjoyed the first novel in the Parasol series. Fun post!
