About the program
Warm up with a good book this winter at Troy Public Library's
3rd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program: Hot Reads for Cold Nights, from January 5 through March 12.

To participate, submit a brief review of each title you read or listen to during the program period. You don't have to write a novel, but please include enough information for the review to be helpful to someone who is thinking about choosing that title. A short paragraph will do.

Each week, two lucky readers will receive a prize, and a Grand Prize of a Kindle Paperwhite eReader and case will be awarded at the conclusion of the program. Prizes will be awarded by random drawings from all reviews submitted, and are provided by the Friends of the Troy Public Library.

So warm up the long, cold Michigan winter nights with some hot reads from the Library. Stop by the Adult Information desk for suggestions, or check out our Bookletters booklists.

Happy reading!

Althea and Oliver
Author
Cristina Moracho
Review
Wonderful writing and complicated, realistic characters. Althea and Oliver have grown up together, and now that they've reached young adulthood, their relationship is getting more complicated. It is even more difficult because Oliver suffers from KLS, a syndrome that makes him fall asleep randomly for weeks on end. The book is marketed to teens, but the gritty, unflinching take on teenage rebelliousness makes it great for older readers.

Straub, Emma
Review
Author takes readers on a journey of a family and some friends who vacation together and whose relationships are tested by unfaithfulness and other life happenings. Entertaining but predictable.
