Welcome to the 2013 Teen Summer Reading Program. This program is open to Haverhill teens entering grades 6 - 12 in the fall and those who graduated from high school in June. You can record books June 24th through September 1st.


For every book that you record, the Friends of the Haverhill Public Library will donate $1 to the Haverhill Gazette Santa Fund. If you submit a short book review (why you liked, or didn't like the book) the Friends of the Haverhill Public Library will donate another $1 to the Haverhill Gazette Santa Fund.


For each time you record 4 books, you will win a free appetizer from UNOs. (Check out UNOs appetizer menu here. Yum!)


Read an interesting review and now you want to read the book? You can go directly to the book's listing in the library catalog by clicking on the book cover at the end of the review (click on view all reviews if you do not see the book cover).


In between the time you're reading all those great books, come visit us at the library too! There's lots of neat summer reading programs at the library. Don't miss the fun, prizes and excitement of summer reading.

Leviathan
Review
Leviathan is a wonderfull ride with artistic illustrations that give the reader a fantastic portrayal of characters, machines, and the beasties of World War One. The story line can become a bit confusing if you know nothing about this time period, but the kick butt characters make up for it. Deryn and Alek are smart, fiesty, and brave twists that add to the excitement of the book.

The Silver Linings Playbook
Review
I watched the movie before I read this book, and I enjoyed the movie greatly. This novel is vastly different from the film, but I actually appreciated both equally, but for different reasons. The movie concentrates more on Tiffany and Pat's relationship, making it more of a romance, while the novel chronicles the entirety of Pat's experience after leaving the "bad place." I really enjoyed Pat's inner monologue throughout the book, and the author/character's style of writing. Although I knew the ending before I started reading the book, I couldn't help turning the pages.

Scarlet
Review
Scarlet is a twist on 'Little Red Riding Hood' with a bit of cyborg mixed in a futuristic novel. It was interesting, if a bit of a cliche.
