Illuminae
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman (3 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Best audiobook I have heard in a long time! I recommend this to anyone who liked the TV series "Firefly"." -- JZivoin, 01/10/2017

"I was up too late every night for days since I could not put this down. Great book." -- RZivoin, 01/10/2017

"This is an amazing, revolutionary book, with the perfect blend of action, space, horror, and romance. Illuminae is told from the point of view of digital texts, audio recordings, video recordings, and recorded diary/journal messages. The entire story has an absolutely riveting plotline, with epic plot turns. I recommend this to any sci-fi fan out there, but the way the book has been written makes you either dislike it or like it immediately." -- VidhurB, 01/12/2017

The Guest Room
The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian (3 Winter Readers liked this book)
"This is not the first book by Chris Bohjalian that I have read. He does a great job with character study during his books. He takes an incident and then lets you look deep into each character to see what they think and what they feel. This was another good book by him. This would make a good book club book, because there is a lot that can be discussed." -- lklugar, 01/18/2017

"Riveting book that takes you into the dark world of sex trafficking. Hard to put down...but it's a fairly good size book, 444 pages, so unless you are the type that can pull an all-nighter, prepare to read this in 3-4 settings as I did." -- Ms Cyndi, 01/15/2017

"Based on the jacket blurb I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book. But since I have really liked several of Bohjalian's previous books, I gave it a try. I am glad I did because it's well-written and I couldn't put it down." -- aisencf, 01/20/2017

The Magnolia Story (with Bonus Content)
The Magnolia Story (with Bonus Content) by Chip Gaines (3 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Wonderful telling of how "Fixer-Upper" came to tv intertwined with the life stories of both Chip and Joanna. They tell their story in a conversational banter, much like they do on tv. Reminds us how everything happens for a reason and that all things work towards good." -- mhpbriton, 01/09/2017

"I was on the wait list for a month. I was so excited when It came in on the first day of the adult reading program. It's a wonderful book I couldn't put it down. It's about the story of Chip and Joanna of how they got to where they are now. They have been through a lot of ups and downs but after patience and perseverance they made it. Can't wait to actually go visit them at the Silos in Waco!" -- rault, 01/13/2017

"This was a really enjoyable view into the life of the hosts of Fixer Upper! I highly recommend it." -- rb91048, 01/09/2017

Commonwealth
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"" Commonwealth" tells the story of two families that become bonded/ detached from one another when the father of one falls in love with the mother of the other. From the 60s to the present, the 6 children move in and out of each other's lives. I really enjoyed this book and felt the relevance of it in today's world of so many blended families. At times though, I almost needed a cheat sheet to remind me of which children belonged to which sets of parents." -- Barken, 01/09/2017

"I liked it, but sometimes had to pay close attention because of the time and locale changes." -- Leslie, 01/20/2017

"This is the 19th book in the Harry Bosch series. In 2016, I began to reread the entire series. This book, like all of the Harry Bosch novels, continues to develop the character. In addition, there is always an excellent twisting of political and police goals. " -- michaeldel, 01/18/2017
