I was thinking about werewolves. Maybe not your everyday passing thought, but in my world werewolves come up a lot. The first book I ever read featuring werewolves was Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf. I couldn’t tell you now where I came across the book, but I can say it was not mine and I was probably too young to be reading it. The illustrations were the initial hook. Vivid, rich colors pulled me in and I’ve been hooked on werewolves ever since. But like the cycle of the Moon I don’t always read werewolf fiction. My craving comes and goes. Here’s some of my favorites, in no particular order:

Cycle of the Werewolf – Stephen King

Moon Dance – S.P. Somtow

Blood and Chocolate – Annette Curtis Klause

Bitten, Stolen and Broken – Kelley Armstrong

Shiver, Linger – Maggie Stiefvater

Darker than you Think – Jack Williamson (A classic)

Frostbite – David Wellington

Crux, Crossroads (and soon Deadlock) – Moira Rogers

Books I’d like to read:

Wolf Moon – Charles de Lint

Overwinter – David Wellington

Frostbitten – Kelley Armstrong

13 to Life – Shannon Delaney

The Mercy Thompson Series – Patricia Briggs

Alpha and Omega Series – Patricia Briggs

And so many more!
