      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Looking for werewolf books

Recommended Posts

I have recently strayed from my usual reads and came across 'Shiver' by Maggie Stiefvater, I really quite enjoyed it and have purchased the sequels. Could anyone suggest a similar book? Possibly aged a older age group?

 

Thanks :D

Have you read Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series? The series starts with Bitten and there are thirteen books in all. The main characters in the first two books are werewolves, after which other "otherworldly" characters are introduced, including witches, vampires, sorcerers, demi-demons, and all manner of other supernaturals. The werewolves continue to feature heavily throughout the series and they're all great reads. They are all actually in my permanent collection - I usually give away my books when I've read them, but I have kept all of these ones.

 

Jackson Pearce – Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings 1) is a YA novel with elements of both Red Riding Hood and Snow White ans Rose Red. Well worth a read.

 

The Southern Vampires series by Charlaine Harris, although mainly about the human and vampire characters, does also feature a lot of werewolves and shapeshifters. The earlier books are better than the last few though. Still, worth a look as they're an entertaining read and differ quite widely from the series they spawned (True Blood).

 

Midnight by Dean Koontz is another were-novel with a bit of a twist. I love Koontz, and this one is a pretty decent premise.

 

Hope that's of some help. :)

I haven't yet read any books about werewolves other than Twilight which was okay, but I have some on my TBR. I can't recommend any of those yet though.

 

@ Kell

I call the series by Charlaine Harris the Sookie Stackhouse series, but I think we mean the same one? (it's on my TBR)

I'll second Kelley Armstrong's Bitten.  I'll throw in Robert McCammon's The Wolf's Hour.  Possibly not what you're looking for, but I thought it was a fun take on werewolves :smile:

Thank you all for replying! I have now got a long list of books to read and also lost count of which books I've actually brought! (thanks eBay)

 

I've purchased a book from eBay calked 'the girl with the werewol tattoo' by Alexia Wells and also 'prince if wolves' by Quinn Loftis. Has anyone read these?
