If you thought 2009 was a pretty good year for our furry friends (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and Twilight sequel New Moon), 2010 is shaping up to be another decent year in Hollywood for the wolves.

Benicio Del Toro stars in The Wolfman , which opens Feb. 12. (CLICK HERE to read an interview with him.) MTV is making a TV show based on the 1980s movie Teen Wolf. And TV shows True Blood and the BBC’s Being Human will shift (no pun intended) their focus from vampires to weres.

Interesting werewolf side note: New Year’s Eve will feature a blue moon, which you can see if your skies are clear. CLICK HERE to read a post that explains a blue moon and how to view it.

Also, CLICK HERE to check out this Web site (werewolves.com) I found for all things werewolf. (There are many other nifty sites but this one caught my eye. Let me know if you have any other faves!)

Of course, there are a lot of fab wolf books out there. I’m looking forward to the release of Patricia Briggs’ SILVER BORNE on March 30. It’s book No. 5 of the Mercy Thompson series.

I really like the Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. And I even like LKH’s werewolf characters in the early part of her Anita Blake series. There’s also Kelley Armstrong’s Otherwold series. And also Keri Arthur’s series with heroine Riley Jenson, who is part werewolf/part vampire!

I’ve read the first book in Briggs’ Alpha & Omega series and enjoyed it. I haven’t read the Mercy books yet. I’ve also read the first two books in Armstrong’s Otherworld series and enjoyed them greatly, because they focused on weres. I haven’t yet read further in the series because the third book focuses on witches, I believe. And, you know, I love the Riley books! I like reading about weres just as much as vamps. 🙂

One YA were book that’s been out for several years — but I haven’t read — is Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause. My sis read it a while back and liked it. re Briggs’ Alpha & Omega series — that is good, too! I pretty much like just about anything by Patricia Briggs. But her heroine Mercy Thompson is just one interesting character! (And her male counterparts are interesting, too!!!!!) But she’s tough. And once again — I love the world that PB has created. She’s got weres, vamps, witches, the fey — some real nasty types in there! She knows how to tell a story.

I have the second Alpha & Omega book in my room on one of my TBR piles. I watched the sub-par film version of Blood & Chocolate when it came out to dvd, but I’ve never read the book.
