One thought on “Running With the Pack

  1. BWT (Belen)

    I liked it The whole story is very sweet with only a light bit of angst and no real conflict I loved that this positively portrays a poly relationship I absolutely loved that one of the characters, also very positively portrayed, is asexual It s a very sweet YA poly relationship where the only time the characters engage in anything sexual it happens totally off page.What didn t really thrill me was how it all comes out unicorns and rainbowseven the conflict isn t very, um, conflicting I mean, se [...]

    High school can be a confusing time of anyone s life, and Finn has a few extra challenges his family has moved from Texas to Colorado just before his senior year and everything is different, he is not exactly a jock nor has he ever been popular, and he is not interested in girls As he settles in and begins to make friends, he finds out that on the one hand life isn t as bad as he expected, but on the other it is much worse His story is one of dealing with a teenager s everyday obstacles, the rea [...]

    First off, if you are thinking about reading this book you should probably know that IT IS NOT A SHIFTER STORY I don t think I am the only one who saw that cover title and then read the blurb and thought poly ace werewolves, but despite my hopes, it was not to be It is cute and I d totally recommend it for the poly ace angle alone, but I went in thinking werewolves and There are normal wolves, and normal people, and awesome people, and not so awesome people But the supernatural peoplet so much I [...]

    Thank you NetGalley for the copy Such a nice read It was an interesting story, with great characters and an original plot I ve never read anything with a poly relationship before, but I think it was tasteful and respectfully written It was nice to read and also the relationship between the guys was the cutest thing ever, even if at times I thought their closeness bordered on unhealthy clinginess, but that may have just been me My major complain was the conflict I was expecting it to have a littl [...]

    A copy of this novel was provided by Harmony Ink Press for review via Net Galley.Running with the Pack was, in a word, sweet.The story follows Finn, who has just moved to a new and much smaller town, and is a little afraid of not having any new friends at school Enter Ivan, good looking and sweet wolf boy not an actual wolf boy, rather a boy who takes care of wolves Finn decides that he wants to volunteer at Ivan s family s wolf sanctuary after being mesmerised by the wolf he meets at the farmer [...]

    3.5 STARSThis was a very sweet and easy read, however it felt somewhat incomplete Running With the Pack is the tale of three high school friends who find themselves becoming much than just that, in small town Colorado The primary setting of this story is the Wolf Center, run by Ivan s family The setting was unique and snagged my interest instantly I must admit, that it was kind of surprising to read a book involving wolves that didn t magically shift into humans What a novel concept The wolves [...]

    It wasn t that he didn t want Adrian to be happy rather he just couldn t picture it not being the three of them 61,4% As soon as I saw that this book would have a poly relationship with three guys, one of which is asexual, I knew that I needed to read the story And thankfully, it s a very sweet story which portrays asexuality and poly relationships as positive, completely normal things I liked that a lot It s a cute love story.There is not a lot going on and there is only a tiny bit of drama, bu [...]

  8. Emily Seelye

    4.5 starsReally liked this Had positive portrayals of both poly relationships and asexual characters This is YA, so all sex happens off page My only complaint is Finn s sisters boyfriend who starts off bullying the trio, but has a change of heart towards the end seems a little unrealistic Also, I wish it had an epilogue set a few years later.

  9. Free_dreamer

    4.5 stars A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words ReviewFor some reason, I fully expected this book to have werewolves It took me a while to realize that the wolves were perfectly normal wolves and nobody was secretly a werewolf That definitely didn t stop me from fully enjoying Running with the Pack , though.Reading this story was truly delightful The MCs were adorable and were a perfect match The angst level was pretty low and there wasn t a whole lot of drama either, but I was never bored I didn [...]

  10. Jennifer Oliveira

    Thank you netgalley for the free copy My problem with this book was the lack of drama, the lack of big things happening, which is something I don t usually or ever complain about since I feel like a lot of books have too much of it The main evil occurrence wasn t so evil, happened late in the book and got solved pretty quickly.The redemption arc of one specific character I m not sure it can be called redemption was a tad unbelievable and, for me, unnecessary.The thing that kept me going, which c [...]

  11. Toni FGMAMTC

    2.5 starsThis is a really sweet book about three teenage boys having a best friend and romance relationship There are bullies and other teen problems, but mostly everything is fluffy and ideal I like how the authors worked polyamorous, bisexual and asexual characters into the story Although Running with the Pack has a lovely cast, it was unable to keep my attention I think it s a good read for teens copy given in exchange for an honest review

  12. Jordan

    The minute that I found out this book featured a poly relationship, I was interested The minute I found out that one of them was ace, I was sold Plus wolves Bonus points.I began this book with high expectations and a feeling of wariness Not many books feature asexual characters because it is so incredibly difficult to capture an accurate portrayal of what it s like to be asexual without crossing that fine line where it overtakes the entire book Running with the Pack walks right on that fine line [...]

  13. FantasyLiving

    Despite the title, this is not a shifter story I say this now, so that you, dear reader do not feel the pang of disappointment like I did when the realisation occurred.After I got over myself, and my peculiar reaction, I got stuck into this story, and didn t fully breath until I finished the last page.To say this is adorable and sweet is an understatement Again, don t let words fool you This isn t one dimensional fluff This is a solid YA story, with a sweet plot and some rough edges.Before I get [...]

  14. Lila Hunter

    My View Running with the Pack is a real young adult novel I m not a YA fan for two main reasons First, most characters act as if they were in their late twenties or older And secondly, the sexual content is too much for the story not because teens don t have sex, but because it s written for an older audience.This story changes that Giving us three characters learning about each other, exploring relationships, and sexuality together I have a fifteen year old daughter, and I d feel comfortable wi [...]

    This book was such an amazingly sweet love story between three boys I truly enjoyed how both A.M Burns and Caitlin Ricci was able to come up with story that is both sad because of the issue with bullies but also amazing at the same time because of the love these three boys found in one another.All three of the boys in this story are so very different But the differences in them is what makes their coming together as a poly couple that much special Adrain is just this sweet, shy, asexual guy, I [...]

    copy provided by the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review Two words puppy love.Two words unconventional and unconvincing.I love the unconventional part of it, I like the authors writing style and it s got a pretty good pace going on, but not much else.After I read the first 5 chapters and no memorable quotes, lines, action or anything else happened, I knew I was in trouble Good for Young Adult readers , I suppose.I am sure that there are plenty of people out there who would [...]

    In a word Read the thing This is a sweet one Also it s the first YA book I ve ever read that featured a poly relationship, and an asexual character I don t really know much about poly relationships or how they work, but the one in this book seems accurate enough This is a story about Finn, Ivan, and Adrian, three high school seniors who discover that it s okay to be in love with than one person at a time so long as everyone is onboard The three boys are adorable and so open in their affection a [...]

    2.5 stars i have some issues with this book but i still think its existence is important it is the first book i ve ever read with poly and asexual representation and i dug that aspect but the thing described IN THE DESCRIPTION doesn t even happen until the book is almost over the writing as a whole, seemed somewhat immature i was shocked to find out that both authors have written other books and honestly, it was pretty unbelievable onto the bullet points Characters i didn t really have an issue [...]

    I was looking for some diverse reads and when I saw this one the synopsis sounded interesting to me I m pleased to say that I really liked it and think it would be a great book for teens, both LGBTQA and their straight allies.I thought it was very well written and dealt with the subject matter in such a relaxed manner that made it a very quick and easy read without getting overly technical I ve read other diverse books that read like textbooks, with their overly complex descriptions of gender t [...]

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.The GoodOMG An honest to goodness wholesome poly relationship Most of the books with poly characters that I read these days have unhealthy poly relationships, but this one didn t, and it Was Amazing It was nice to see this relationship start off as a friendship and then form into It moved a little fast, but at the same time, I think time passed with the kids in their friendship stage than was initially let on.The BadIt was a sickly sweet bo [...]

  23. Steph ☀️

    I was happy with the direction that the authors took when writing this book Believe me, they could have made the bullying a lot harsher than what it ended up being In addition, the end point I had in mind, thank goodness is not what the authors had I have to say yeah for being wrong I am sure some of you will understand my what I am saying when you read the book.Following on the same pattern, all three sets of parents were not only accepting of Finn, Ivan and Adrian being gay asexual but eventua [...]

    I got this book from netgalley in exchange for a review The story of how 3 high school boys who fall into a polyamorous relationship What could you want Wella lot actually I did find the subject interesting and the characters likable, but there was something missing There wasn t much angst other than a couple of bully brothers who were mean to Adrian Like how can their parents be like oh yeah best friends turned boyfriends in a 3 way relationship biggie If this were real life it would be a huge [...]

    2.5 5 stars I was sent an ARC of the book in exchange for a review This is an honest review Special thanks to Harmony Ink Press for sending me a copy Running With the Pack is the first book I ve read that centers around polygamy And as interesting as it is to me, it s just not a really good book It s almost as if the main characters are living in queer wonderland, everyone is fine with their queerness, with the exception of 2 bullies Which doesn t reflect reality at all Even then, their conflict [...]

    I don t know where to start from I loved every minute I spent reading this book, I didn t put it down till I was done reading it A poly relationship between three best friends, Ivan, Adrian and Finn Together they discover their real selves and the true meaning of friendship I love how each of their families were open, understanding and accepting of them There isn t too much angst, so if you re looking for a light cutesy teenage m m m poly read with a happy ending, you don t have to search furthe [...]
