Bitten
Bitten | Kelley Armstrong
An erotically charged, addictive thriller from the future queen of suspense.Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart. Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape.But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one.An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman's body.From the Paperback edition.

A reread from long ago, chosen to check off a prompt, and because I lost my way around book ten of the series and need a restart to power through. I had a hard time with Elena and Clay‘s relationship, but I know over the series it will evolve. I prefer Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews‘ series, and other of Armstrong‘s series, but it‘s still good. As I recall the series gets better. I‘d call this a pick minus.

Any werewolf book recommendations? I love the idea of them but have yet to find one I actually love!

I've read Bitten and felt that Clay was toxic and could NOT stand the way that relationship played out. I've also read one Patricia Briggs book and felt it was overly romantic... all the "mate" language made me roll my eyes a lot.

Anything else out there?! I'm not ready to give up. Ginger Snaps is one of my favourite movies!!

KathyWheeler Red Moon by Benjamin Percy. It‘s a really different take on werewolves. In it, werewolves are discriminated against — it‘s a civil rights issue. https://smile.amazon.com/Red-Moon-Novel-Benjamin-Percy-ebook/dp/B008TU2592/ref=m... 5mo
erank58 I haven't read it myself, but I know there's Wolf Moon by Charles de Lint (one of my favorite fantasy aythors). It has some mixed reviews ( lots of super high, lots of super low) but may be worth checking out! 5mo

I loved this book. I had watched The series first, not realizing there was a book, so when I stumbled across it at the library I was pleasantly surprised. The series definitely followed the book pretty well and changed only a few details. I am looking forward to reading more from The Otherworld series.
Book 26 for 2019

anissaannalise @LokiDokey great pick! i enjoyed this one & also came to it because of the series (it crossed my mind last week & i must still kinda miss it) 😃 7mo

Cailey_Mac I think this is why I love Spring so much; it‘s a resurgence of color, of life, of fresh scents; it‘s more sunlight than you‘ve been used to for almost half the year, it‘s like feeling the Earth breathe for the first time since Fall; at least that‘s how it feels for me😅🌱 8mo

Really struggled with this one....does the rest of the series get better?

blurb

Bitten | Kelley Armstrong

I think I am on episode 6 season 1 now. If i hadn't read the books it honestly would be good.
But having read the books...
Clayton still doesn't have a southern accent and now he is calling Elena "darling " and it just sounds wrong
Elena is still wearing too much make up. I mean who wakes up from bed with a fully made face?
And this romance with the Toronto boyfriend is dragging on and on
Little surprised at all the nudity. Lots of eye candy

blurb
booklover76
Bitten | Kelley Armstrong

A coworker of mine has challenged me to watch the TV series. 2 episodes down. Meh. Opinion still out (and I have a very strong opinion about Clayton Danvers because he is a book boyfriend).
So far Elena is too pretty for me. Too much makeup and heels
Clayton is not blond and has no southern drawl.

Elena Michaels is the only known female werewolf, but she grows tired of spending her life pursuing rogue werewolves and trying to control her temper and violence. She decides to leave her Pack and live in Toronto as a human, but the Pack leader calls in a favor, which leads Elena to try to help quell an uprising.

#junebookbugs day 24: #urbanfantasy
Some urban fantasy series I've enjoyed.
I recently read an old post on Carringer's website on whether her Soulless series can be categorized as "urban fantasy" http://gailcarriger.com/2009/07/27/soulless-urban-fantasy-historical-paranormal/
And here's a list of completed urban fantasy series
https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/sci-fi-fantasy/16-complete-urban-fantasy-ser...

DebinHawaii I was thinking of picking Souless & Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series for this prompt because I don't read a lot of urban fantasy. Interesting discussion--I would have placed it in that category too, even if it has historical elements. 🤔📚 2y
rubyslippersreads @DebinHawaii @RealLifeReading I think of Carriger's books more as steampunk. 2y
DebinHawaii @rubyslippersreads @RealLifeReading Oh definitely it's steampunk but I think that series in particular fits under several categories with its different elements. 👍📚 2y
Crystallinegirl Thanks for the link to completed series! I've read several, and the Parasol Protectorate has been on my TBR list for ages, but I added at least four more series to my TBR list! 2y

Love this series!! Bitten entangles you in a world where women are a force to be reckoned with! Followed by a male team smart and sexy enough to bring any women to their knees with perfect villains.

Elena Michaels from bitten is described as slender and athletic with white blonde hair and blue eyes. Although a bit of a tom boy, it isn't just the fact that she is the only known female werewolf that makes her attractive! Maybe not quite a #BlondeBombshell but definitely a very attractive blonde 💕

Photo is from the series. It's okay, but none of the characters are as I imagined (especially Jeremy) and it diverges MASSIVELY from the books!

#booklove17 #day9 #puppylove Do werewolves count as puppies? I think so. This is the first three books in the werewolf arc in Kelley Armstrong's Women Of The Otherworld series. When Elena Michaels falls in love with the wild Clay Danvers, a professor at the University, she has no idea that he is also a werewolf. When he bites her, scared of losing her, she becomes the first and only female werewolf. Unable to forgive Clay, she runs from the pack.

I finally read it. It was pretty good. I had some issues with world building and Elena is one stubborn heroine. I felt the end was rushed. I have no desire to read the next book but I l had heard so much about this book I figured it was time to read it. Clay I felt was mistreated by Elena. I had a hard time with getting over that.

#octphotochallenge #vampireorwerewolf #werewolf

For today's photo challenge I am going with the werewolves in Women of the Otherworld, namely Jeremy. He puts up with a lot as alpha of the pack. Yet he still treats everyone like family, and had so much patience for Elena after she was turned. However he still is willing to fight for the pack and deserves to get a happy ending in the series ❤️

AmandaL Great choice! It's been years since I read this series, but I loved Jeremy! 3y

I love Kelley Armstrong & was thrilled when I found out that Bitten was coming to TV. I tried to watch it, tried to like it, tried to care about it even a little bit but I just couldn't! It was just all so wrong, & bad. I felt like it didn't respect the source material at all. I was only able to sit through 4-5 episodes before I bailed. One good thing, though: it prompted me to reread the Otherworld series! #Ruinedbythemovie #OctPhotochallenge

Kelley Armstrong, Stephen R. Donaldson, & Terry Brooks are a few of my favourite writers. Of these 3, Donaldson is the only one where I started with his first novel. With Brooks, I read Landover, the Word & the Void, & some Shannara prequels before finally reading the original Shannara trilogy. I read Armstrong's Dime Store Magic & Industrial Magic before realizing that there were earlier Otherworld novels. #Booktober #DebutNovels
