You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

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: Weekend Reading

I am finally getting around to one of Michael Connelly's stand-alone books.  I'm just getting started, so I'm not real sure what I think of Cassie Black yet.

I finished this book and I really enjoyed it.  I noticed it received somewhat mixed reviews, but I think a lot of people expected another Bosch book.  I admit that a book written from the criminal's point of view is not what we might expect from a typical thriller, but that uniqueness is what I enjoyed about the book.  I just hope Michael Connelly brings Cassie Black back.  I want to find out if she is walking the straight and narrow!

Re: Weekend Reading

[ Edited ]

What's every one reading this weekend? 

 

I just finished 

Abyss  

 

here's my review

 

The world has gone through cataclysmic changes since Tupperman voluntarily gave up his wings to aid mankind. He and his fallen angel brethren have sacrificed much to save the humans and have received many blessings in return. Four years ago when society came out of the darkness, Tupperman once again chose to stay on earth to help the progress of this new world order and convinced many more to shed their wings to help.
Now he sits on a train bound for New Mexico a fugitive for crimes he didn’t commit journeying to what maybe his last mission when an intriguing woman sits down next to him with a proposition.
Kara’s mission to see the Oracle about fulfilling her people’s prophecy has failed, she’s been literally tossed out on her bottom by the angels who refused to grant her an audience. So she’s boarded the train back home to New Mexico a failure in one mission but as she sits next to a handsome man with the purest green eyes she realizes she may just be able to fulfill another.

 

Clair Delacroix’s finale to her urban fantasy romance series is fantastic, she’ll take readers down terrifying dark alleys, wide open spaces and fill the air with angelic voices with her always fluent, sometimes frightening and visual narrative. Her selfless hero and determined heroine are perfect for each other and are perfectly portrayed as they dodge bad guys and fall in love. She’ll catch readers up on her co-stars past happenings as she weaves the intricate web of her current Angel tale.
Novels are best read in order for maximum understanding and enjoyment.
Claire you’ve taken me to turret towers, dragons lairs, from the Middle Ages to the present and into the future and you can be sure that wherever you’re bound next my bags are packed. Brava!

 

And I'm just starting on a book for LibraryJournal review

 

The Collector of Dying Breaths  

 

 And just finished my RT review of 

Random Acts of Kindness

I have recently read WInter People by Jennifer McMahon and it was great. McMahon keeps getting better and better.

I have also been working my way through Mo Hayder's Jack Caffery series and just finished book 4 in the series. Hayder writes a dark mystery/thriller that really gets you involved with the characters.

Reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown, the first in a scifi trilogy. I am really liking Brown.

Hi, Thought I would stop in and see what people are reading.

I am trying to catch up on some authors and try a new author with Red Rising.

Re: Tell us what you're reading right now and what's next on your shelf

The Son  I was in Houston for a wedding and found myself with a bit of a wait for the plane so I decided to check out the bookstore. I thought, "Well, if I'm in TX might as well get the full experience" so I picked up this one. It's three POV story of TX a TX powerhouse family (and not a very complimentary one, at that).  I'm a little over halfway through. It bogged down in the middle somewhat but is beginning to pick up again.
