I’m back for a new Theme Thursday! This month’s theme is Werewolves.
Theme Thursday is a new monthly feature created by the wonderful and sweet Sophie @ Blame Chocolate where bloggers can share recs and newly found books featuring that month’s theme.
- There will be a different theme (genre, trope, etc) every month. You can check the theme calendar here.
- Those participating have to list titles that feature that theme in some way (doesn’t have to be the main theme of the book).
- You can choose one of the four (or five) Thursdays of every month to post.
- You can use the three main categories: Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading, Books I Want to Read, and Other Books That Fit The Theme but this isn’t mandatory.
- You can repeat books in different themes, if they apply, and choose as many as you want.
- You don’t have to take part every month! Just when you feel like it.
- You can use #BlameThemeThursday on Twitter and other social media to make TT posts easier to find.
- Finally, use this boxed text (or similar) in your post, as it doubles as a pingback.
Books I’ve Read
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Okay hear me out: Fenrir Greyback is one of the cruelest and greatest villain. How I would love to have a little bit of a back story on him. He’s the one to who bit Remus as a child just for payback, he’s the one who bit Bill Weasley and maimed Lavender Brown (and nearly bit Hermione). He’s not even a Death Eater but serves Voldemort to have more victims. He prefers attacking children because they’re easier to corrupt. AND he’s a wizard too which makes him a double threat. He makes for a very intriguing character.
The Vampire Diaries series by L.J. Smith
The series that started it all. Vampires were “the good guys” and Werewolves were the “bad guys” but I still enjoyed reading about them.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Wolf is more of a hybrid but so are werewolves so it counts. He’s incredibly loyal but still questions where his loyalty lies and he’s protective of his loved ones. I loved reading about him.
Mate Me [If You May] (The Millennium Wolves, #0.5) by Sapir England
This was self-published and had a lot of typos but it was very entertaining nonetheless (I read it in a day!). It’s the verycliché: Strong female werewolf is still a virgin, despite the Haze which pushes every werewolf to find a partner to relieve the sex craze…until she meets the Alpha who marks her as his partner for the season. Very very steamy scenes and likeable characters.
Books I want to Read
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I’m probably the only person on Earth who’s not read those two books. But I don’t know if I would enjoy them now as I would have as a teen. I’m still going to give those books a chance…someday.
Bonus: TV show
How could I not feature Teen Wolf here? It was such an amazing show when it came out and my sister and I were obsessed! I stopped watching it at some point but it stills holds a special place in my heart.
What would you recommend?:)
