So, what happens on a full moon?
My only advice - don't get bitten.
But, if you do get bitten by a werewolf then these are a few books that could help you.
1. Sisters Red by Jackson Pierce.
Scarlett March is ruthless, bloodthirsty and lacking one eye. She lost it when a Fenris (Werewolf) attacked her younger sister, Rosie, and Scarlett protected her. Now, they hunt the Fenris saving young girls from an awful fate.
Essentially a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood considering that Scarlett wears a red cape when she hunts.
2. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.
Grace is fascinated by the wolves behind her house, particularly a certain yellow eyed wolf who is more than what he seems. In summer this wolf is a boy named Sam and then winter comes and he becomes a wolf again. When Grace and Sam meet they realise that they cannot be separated, but during winter what will they do?
This is the book equivalent of ice-cream and Netflix. Wonderfully indulgent.
3. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
Before I'm lynched for either loving or bashing Twilight this is the book that initially got me into reading so of course I'm going in include it.
4. Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith.
Same deal with Twilight!
5. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer.
Calla Tor is a werewolf that has had her life set out for her for years. After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll is destined to become the mate of Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But, when she disobeys her masters' laws by saving a human boy, Calla questions everything she has ever known.
Just plain awesome.
