Why I don't like Werewolves

So...I was flipping through my library's 25 cent bin when I run across the paperback shown down below and I'm like...naaaaahh.

Yeaahhh, but NO
I do love me an ol' fantasy book and I did make an effort to read the back but as soon as I see an animal on the cover my face just cringes and I repel it immediately like a vampire exposed to garlic.

It's not that I don't like animals...I just don't like reading about them, which would include all werewolf literature.

"So does that mean you're team Edward and not team Jacob? I don't see you complaining about Vampire Hunter D!" you might say.

Nope, any inclusion of werewolves automatically disqualifies the piece of vampire fiction. No offense to you, Jacob, but I don't particularly like Edward either. It's not you, it's me. In fact, the entire Twilight series is just below my mental age.
Rudimentary, my dear Watson

"Why are you so mean to werewolves? They are part human too!" chime the werewolf PITA.

I guess it all boils down to personal preference or something deep within my psyche. You see... I just don't like hairy men.

Wolverine: I am so hurt by your words!
I don't know, for some reason I just equate animals to children's fiction so anytime one uses animals as a main character, I just find it hard to relate. In fact, the last novel I read about animals was probably, like, Charlotte's Web or something.
It was Black Beauty, dumb dumb

Which is sad, because I'd probably miss out on some great fantasy novels, such as Redwall.

This story does have a happy ending, though. At the end of the day, I picked up the 2 parter Kingmaker, Kingbreaker novels by Karen Miller for 25 cents each! And I don't even know what this fantasy series is all about! But at least it doesn't have animals on the cover.

So cute, though...
