Blogtober Day 9: Favourite Vampire or Werewolf

Not to be That Person, but my favourite werewolf is of course Remus John Lupin, whom I love with all of my heart. But he doesn’t need more popularity, and I have fallen in love with a series about a wolf pack this year, so I really wanted to share my review of Wolfsong by TJ Klune for today’s blogtober prompt!

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS

Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road, the boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.

Ox was seventeen when he found out the boy’s secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.

Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.

It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

CWs: death of side characters, torture/assault/violence/blood, mentions of rape, abduction/taking hostage, past emotional abuse by a parent, a few graphic sex scenes

Rep: bisexual MC, gay love interest, asexual side character, queer side characters, Hispanic side character

Wolfsong (Green Creek, #1)

I recently read Wolfsong by TJ Klune for the first time, and Oh. My. God. I love the Green Creek series so much! After reading a mere 4 pages, I was ready to give my life for Ox. He’s just that precious.

It took me almost three days to read this book, not because it’s a slow read, but because I wanted to savour it. Is it technically a perfect book? Quite honestly, no. But it’s so special, and it made me feel so much, which means it’s most definitely a book I’ll be rereading a lot. In a way, this book reminded me of The Foxhole Court. It’s a completely different kind of book, but both are character driven and messed up, with so much heart. I think if you enjoyed that book, you’ll likely enjoy this too!

  1. Definitely Remus. As for vampires – no competition there either; Baz!

    I do want to get hold of this series, though – I’ve seen loads of people really loving it. Sadly, it’s not one my library’s going to have, so I’ll have to wait.
