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!

Be Cool

Elmore Leonard
Review
Set in Hollywood, this story is about actors, musicians, managers, and record companies. Leonard throws in some mobsters and pimps to add some interest. I was disappointed in this book, but I usually like his work.

This is the first book in the series. Harry Potter finds out he is a wizard and attends his first year at the Hogwarts school. He meets several witches and wizards, and has his first real adventure in the series. In the end, with help from friends Ron and Hermione, he is able to defeat the attempts of Voldemort to come to life and wreak havoc.

Title
The Husband's Secret
Author
Liane Moriarty
Review
The story makes you think, is there a reason for everything that happens to us?! And is life really not fair. Are we distant by fate, or things could have been different if circumstances changed. The author leaves us with a few (what if) questions at the end, that make you think of your own life!
