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!

Title
No Second Chance
Author
Harlan Coben
Review
Coben has a talent for telling a story with many twists and turns. Every chapter adds another layer of suspense and intrigue. No Second Chance involves murders, child kidnapping, and ransom money. Our characters have troubled pasts and that reflects on their current actions as the hunt for a missing child is underway.

Fables: Legends In Exile
Author
Bill Willingham
Review
This is volume one of the Fables comics. It's a very interesting take on fairy tale characters and I like that it's often very dark like many original fairy tales were. The art style and pace is great. Sometimes I still felt I was missing things here or there but I'm hoping that will get cleared up as I continue with the series.
