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
The Darkest Part of the Forest
Author
Holly Black
Review
There were things I loved about this book and things I really did not love. This is about magic and faeries and a girl hero. The world was intriguing and enjoyable but the plot was sort of chaotic.

The Cure for Dreaming
Author
Cat Winters
Review
I thoroughly enjoyed this. This was about women's rights and hypnotism and it was at times weird but entertaining. The only reason I gave this a rating of 4 not 5 is because there was some insta-love/infatuation though I suppose that could be partly attributed to the characters "magic".

Title
The 6th Extinction
Author
James Rollins
Review
A well-researched, riveting, action-adventure book involving the Sigma Force team, Antarctica, bio-engineered life forms, Brazil, a heroic dog, Nazis, and possibly the best made-for-Hollywood story I've read! The idea that we humans are in the process of extincting ourselves off the planet makes perfect sense after reading the various (all interesting!) story-lines that tie together real science and a really dramatic plot. Do NOT tour the South Pole. Ever. Just sayin'...
