Welcome to the first Wolf Reads post of 2019! This week, rather than traditionally published books, here are some interesting stories you can find on Wattpad.
Now Wattpad is notorious for stories about “billionaire boys” and “bad boys” and cliched romance stories. BUT there are quite a few gems. Here are some of my favourites. The titles have been hyperlinked for your comfort. (You’re welcome.)

Who doesn’t enjoy fairy tales? Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio–you know, the ones with the happily-ever-afters and good looking people. Now, be prepared to rip out all those expectations about classic fairy tales in these revamped twisted tales.
This book is hilarious. Each tale twists and turns so much with every word that you never know what will happen next. It’s absolutely wonderful. Also, Rob Thier, the author, has a very eccentric writing style which will draw you in from the first sentence. I guarantee it.

Theodosius is a necromancer who lives at the End of the World. This is the story of how he got there. It also features cats! (Although I do prefer dogs.)
I’m not a fan of romance but I do love fantasy books! True Love and Necromancy is the perfect blend of both. It’s a cute, whimsical story about a grumpy necromancer who falls in love. It really tugs at your heartstrings.
Aliens have invaded the planet and it’s up to Dick Sanchez to face off against their leader.
This is a short story so I can’t say much without giving away spoilers. BUT if you love Rick and Morty (a TV show which you should definitely watch) and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (a book series which, if you haven’t read, need to, like, right now), you will definitely enjoy Win-vasion. It’s witty and quirky, and it’s really short too, so nothing to lose!
The good thing about Wattpad is if you’re ever just really bored in class, you can always read one of these books! Although, you’ll probably get into trouble for that. (I take no responsibility for students reading in classes. 🙂 )
