Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: What are some good teen books?

Definetely try some James Patterson like Maximum Ride and Daniel X (I loved those!) other good books are Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr, the Clique series is good but they tend to be a bit repetative

Re: What are some good teen books?

is that a joke! Twilight sucks! there's no plot whatsoever, but if you like reading about pasty emos that obsess over their boyfriends and have nothing else to do but complain go right ahead, but if you have any good taste then you'll stay away

[ Edited ]

-Anything by Tamora Pierce.She writes fantasy with mostly girl heros.

Alanna the First Adventure is my favorite.

 

-The Chronicles of Narnia-these are classics and no one should miss reading them.

 

-Of course Twilight and Harry Potter

 

-Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is one of the best books I have ever read.

 

-A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

Re: What are some good teen books?

Whale Song is very popular with teens and pre-teens.

 

It explores issues like racism, bullying, friendship and family. It's been used in classrooms across the US and Canada as a novel study. A NATO school in Germany recently used it as their Canadian literature novel study.

 

Though there are a few print copies floating around, Whale Song is out of print. It's available as an ebook though via major ebook retailers and should be available on B&N as an ebook in the future.

Re: What are some good teen books?

There is a young adult novel entitled "Takeoffs and Landings" that is simply extraordinary, and for real reading pleasure, the kind you'll never put down and then hate when they end...try the novels of Connie Willis (technically in the science-fiction section, but don't be put off by that, she exceeds the genre into something far more human) most especially her books "Doomsday Book" and "Lincoln's Dreams" (a real heartbreaker, that).
