Book Ending Autumn – Monster Mash

Hey everyone, second to last day of my prompts, I’m sure you’re excited to be rid of me -just don’t tell me or it’ll hurt my feelings lolol, jk, I’m ginger, I have no soul and therefore no feelings-

Thanks to Sam and Clo for putting together such a fun and awesome even as BookEnding and I am so happy to be participating in BE Autumn!!

Today’s prompt is MONSTER MASH

What does this mean?

DANCE FOOLS, DANCE

Jk.

I mean, you can dance if you want to…you can leave your friends behind…

But this Monster Mash is for telling everyone your favorite monster/creature and giving us book recs to go with it. [Feel free to give movie and song recs, whatever recs you want!]

So, without further delay let’s get this mash started. [Please feel free to use the featured image if you like!]

 

Monster Mash Pick
Werewolf

 

I can’t help it, I have always loved werewolves, wolves are my favorite animals and so, I gravitate toward the monsters inspired by them and men.

For book Recs, I’m not going to lie, I have not read a lot with werewolves in it and I would LOVE to change this, so if you have any recs for me, please let me know!

Anyway, I have a duology rec and a standalone/series rec [you could read it as a standalone or as part of the series!]

Duology:

Camille

 

Standalone/Series Rec:

A Bad Breed
[Gaslamp Gothic #3]

 

I admit I did like what Meyers did with her werewolves in Twilight I thought thwas probably the most creative part and really enjoyed it. I also love almost every werewolf movie I have ever seen, whether because they’re good or they’re so bad they’re good.

I think I’m probably drawn to werewolves because they show us that there’s an animal inside us all. We forget we’re part of the animal kingdom, that we’re not above the other creatures. Somewhere inside us, we all have these base instincts. What separates us is how we resist those darker/wilder survival instincts. The fun about werewolves is watching them unleash that darkness, I have a fondness for it, there’s something beautiful as well as horrifying about it.

Anyway, there’s my monster mash pick, I can’t wait to hear what recs and monsters/creatures you all have to share!
