What Are Your Thoughts on Werewolf Romance?
The other day I went to our Facebook page and asked you guys what you want me to write about – and I got a lot of responses. The answers that surprised me the most though were the romance ones. Some of you asked me to write about werewolf romances! All this time I thought that was such a taboo subject on this site. I thought everyone here was obsessed with gore and horror. But it turns out that some, not all, but some of you want a little werewolf lovin’ in your lives. And that got me thinking and wondering and all that. I couldn’t up but wonder how the rest of you felt about werewolves in romance novels. Then I was struck with the need to create another poll. So it’s poll time!
Personally, I like it… on occasion. I refuse to read only ONE subject or ONE genre. That would get awfully boring awfully quick. So yes, I do read grand romance novels on occasion, just like I occasionally read violent and gruesome novels. I like a mixture. I know many will say “werewolves are supposed to be scary!” But please, tell me where that law is written. There is no right or wrong werewolf. Plus, who says a werewolf can’t rip someone to shreds one minute and have sexy times the next? No one! Fuck rules! Werewolves can do it all!
But enough about my opinions. What are yours? Do you like werewolf romance novels or films? Do you think it’s ok for a werewolf to be in love? Let me know in a comment below.
Also, going back to the Facebook thing – if you ever want to shoot me an idea or request, send me a message here or on Twitter. I may just pick up your idea.
