Adult Winter Reading Program: Most Popular Titles

The Martian
The Martian by Andy Weir (3 Winter Readers liked this book)
"I absolutely loved this book. This was very intriguing and I just kept on reading because I wanted to know what happened. There is a lot of scientific terms of being in space that got a little confusing, but fantastic plot and book overall." -- blue15, 01/13/2016

"A not-so-science-y science fiction novel that is equal parts Robinson Crusoe and Apollo 13. Loved all of it except the math parts. Yes, there is math in space! " -- crazycat66, 02/23/2016

"I saw the movie first and still could not put this book down. Excellent!" -- bjam, 02/02/2016

A Girl Named Zippy
A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"This memoir is full of laugh-out-loud moments along with sad and sweet moments. It was very easy to get through this book because the author's memories are all entertaining. " -- EBeliles, 01/30/2016

"I'm stumped for how to recommend this brilliant little book without gushing too much. It's a great book, in fact it is a wonderful book. Read it." -- crazycat66, 02/05/2016

All the Bright Places
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Great young adult book!" -- lekoenigs, 02/10/2016

"This is a Young Adult title, exploring the delicate topic of Bipolar Disorder. It would lend well to book club discussions. Even though it was somber, I enjoyed all of the Indiana related nods. " -- lisaannmcintoshsmith, 03/02/2016

And Only to Deceive
And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"The first book in Alexander's Lady Emily series. A nice little historical mystery with a bonus of romance tossed in to make it the perfect winter afternoon read." -- crazycat66, 01/28/2016

"Widowed after only a few months, Emily begins to learn more about her husband through his journal and an intriguing mystery. I look forward to reading more by this author. " -- Lynx, 03/05/2016

"Great book. " -- jaredrodell, 01/21/2016

Boys in the Trees
Boys in the Trees by Carly Simon (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"good book, interesting especially if you are a Carly Simon fan. She is quite revealing, perhaps too much in some parts of her book." -- marie, 01/11/2016

"i could not figure out why Carly Simon wrote this book. At first i thought it was to vindicate her father but as I read further it seemed like she needed the money. Looked up he bio and found that she had lost thousands of dollars in a Ponzi Scheme." -- Kathie, 02/10/2016

Brain on Fire
Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"incredible" -- ddougherty, 03/03/2016

"This book was a true story about Susannah Cahalan, a girl in her 20s who had a rare brain disease that caused her to be psychotic for a month. It was an interesting journey of self-discovery." -- hawaiigirl22, 02/15/2016

Circling the Sun
Circling the Sun by Paula McLain (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"I would recommend this book. It told the story of Beryl Markham who was an extraordinary woman, one of the first women to break role barriers. Her life in Africa was quite an adventure." -- Duckyb, 02/03/2016

"Enjoyed this book very much. Interesting look at an interesting time and amazing woman. Liked Paris wife, but liked this book better. " -- arose, 01/17/2016

Cross Justice
Cross Justice by James Patterson (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"The next installment of the Alex Cross series. Alex Cross returns to his hometown and learns about his parents." -- Nancy, 01/29/2016

"Another great Alex Cross book that keeps you guessing to the end. I like the fact that they went back to Alex's childhood years and hazy history." -- 21690200273848, 01/30/2016

Dead Heat
Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Love this series almost as much as Mercy. Briggs is a very fun and interesting author and I enjoy all her books." -- realvamps, 02/13/2016

"I have read all of the Alpha and Omega series and Mercy Thompson series. I have enjoyed them and re-read them again before a new book comes out. This book is fun. There are fey, witches and werewolves plus a mystery that must be solved. " -- sblanchard76, 02/13/2016

Everything I Never Told You
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"I really enjoyed this book. This had a really good balance of mystery and romance. I really enjoyed following the characters. The development was really interesting and I would recommend this book." -- blue15, 02/17/2016

"I like the story even if I got lost at times in this back and forth time changes. It's sad how so many of the problems of this book wouldn't have been if everyone had just talked to each other. But I guess that's the whole point." -- nephillips, 02/06/2016

Finders Keepers
Finders Keepers by Stephen King (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Mr. Mercedes and the sort of sequel, Finders Keepers, are not Mr. King's horror supernatural stories. They are thrillers. His writing has gotten better and it was terrific, to begin with. If you thought Stephen King was too scary, these books might be palatable to you. There is almost nothing supernatural." -- PilatesJim, 01/13/2016

"Mercedes killer is back. Creepy and very good!" -- realvamps, 02/13/2016

Flesh and Blood
Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"A hard read, with a strange ending. Not Cornwell's best." -- lmoulder@ymail.com, 01/11/2016

"You know that point when you talk back to the book, I was there a couple times with this book." -- Jacque, 01/24/2016

Go Set a Watchman
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Having read To Kill a Mockingbird, I realize that Lees writing is best when she's writing in flashbacks. I enjoyed this book for its message, but the writing was not as smooth as in her first book. " -- jaytinaemma, 01/18/2016

"Didn't quite hit the mark like To Kill a Mockingbird, but it was a good sequel, since I had just finished the prior." -- attakquak, 01/15/2016

If This Isn't Nice, What Is?
If This Isn't Nice, What Is? by Kurt Vonnegut (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"A selection of Vonnegut's commencement addresses (which often seem fluid and steam of consciousness in style) introduced by Dan Wakefield--two Hoosiers for the price of one!" -- Indysteve7, 01/16/2016

"Charming and hilarious, I loved his insights on life. " -- 21690200435595, 03/01/2016
