Adult Winter Reading Program: Most Commented Titles

A Dog Gone Murder
A Dog Gone Murder by Elaine Viets (Mystery/Suspense)
Josie Marcus, Mystery Shopper books are perfect waiting in car pool lane reading. Car pool reading requires even less concentration than beach reading. -- Added by CFA on 01/31/2015

I hope you are not the driver waiting in the car pool lane. :-) -- pittsburghpolish on 01/31/2015  
I like this series also. I am a couple books behind, but have read most of them. -- kannasoup on 02/18/2015  
Dark Places
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (Mystery/Suspense)
This was a suspenseful book! From the same writer of Gone Girl - it was every bit as good, in my opinion! -- Added by samps on 02/26/2015

Just finished this one - GREAT BOOK! I've read all three of her books and this one was actually my favorite - couldn't put it down! -- rocknwife68 on 02/26/2015  
I loved this book. Its masterful how Flynn tells this story from different perspectives and keeps you guessing as to "Who Did It?" I was on the edge of my seat till the very end. -- Katzda2014 on 03/12/2015  
Gone Girl
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Other Fiction)
This book is on the best seller list but I wonder about the author's mindset. I think author needs psychiatric counseling. -- Added by Kathie on 03/02/2015

Yes, I also found this book disturbing. The author seems to have serious issues and a lot of bitterness. I won't read any more of her books, nor will I see the movie. -- pittsburghpolish on 03/02/2015  
It is disturbing. Thats the whole point. She is taking you to that moment of uncomfortableness to make you think and squirm. Its pure escapism as she takes you away to that place we don't go to in our real world. Its not light reading and its definitely not for everyone. -- Katzda2014 on 03/12/2015  
The Black Book
The Black Book by Ian Rankin (Mystery/Suspense)
When a close colleague is brutally attacked, Inspector John Rebus is drawn into a case involving a hotel fire, an unidentified body, and a long forgotten night of terror and murder. Pursued by dangerous ghosts and tormented by the coded secrets of his colleague's notebook, Rebus must piece together a jigsaw no one - perhaps not even he - wants completed. -- Added by Judy on 02/03/2015

I've read almost all of Rankin's Inspector Rebus books--they are great! This is an oldie but goodie. Try the others! -- ElizabethR on 02/04/2015  
I went to fictfact.com to see the list of books in the series. I'm trying to read them in order. -- Judy on 02/08/2015

I agree! It was one of my favorite books in 2014. -- Cindy on 02/14/2015  
Beautiful Redemption
Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
I like the way the authors have broken this by writing in Lena's voice in addition to Ethan's. -- Added by readymcbookerson on 02/27/2015

I thought the last two books were better then the first two. Have you read any of the spin off books about Link and Ridley? -- Katzda2014 on 03/12/2015  
Cress
Cress by Marissa Meyer (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
This is the 3rd book in the Lunar Chronicles Series. It is by far the best of the four books out there. It has a lot of action, adventure and suspense. Also, you absolutely are rooting for this group of misfit characters to save the day and save the world. This book is a mixture of Science Fiction and Fairy Tales and is absolutely not to be missed. Find it in the YA section of the library. -- Added by Katzda2014 on 03/12/2015

Cannot figure out how to respond to your question Regarding Beautiful Redemption. I had no idea there were Ridley and Link spin-offs. Must read! Thanks. -- readymcbookerson on 03/20/2015  
Enigma
Enigma by Robert Harrus (Mystery/Suspense)
Fast-paced mystery with plenty of history (WWII)thrown in, plus a little romance. Set in 1942-43 at Bletchley Park, where thousands of civilians, government employees, and members of the armed sevices are struggling to break the Enigma codes the Germans broadcast their military orders on. And in the middle of a particularly grueling week of work, a young woman goes missing. Great fun, kept me guessing to the end. -- Added by EmilyS on 02/14/2015

Have read this separately of the reading program and would highly recommend. This book is a good primer to the movie "imitation game" which is out now and i think up for an oscar. -- grace lilly on 02/15/2015  
Guardians of the Night
Guardians of the Night by Alan Russell (Mystery/Suspense)
This is the first book I've read by Alan Russell and I'm happy to say it won't be my last. The story was engaging and kept me on my guessing. I'm also a huge dog person, so I could relate to his feelings towards his dog. -- Added by Redwings4life on 02/06/2015

The first book in the series is Burning Man. I enjoyed that book and am looking forward to this book. -- Judy on 02/08/2015

Left to Tell by Immaculée Ilibagiza (History/Biography)
True story about hiding from the killing spree during the Rwanda genocide. Quick read that you will never forget. Great book! -- Added by Bernadette on 02/12/2015
