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.

I wanted to read some good YA Science Fiction and Fantasy over the summer. Anybody know of some good novels/series that would be a good read?

Re: Suggestions!

Oh geez I just got done with a science fiction course lol, but I'm not going to recommend any of those to you. They were horrible with the exception of Frankenstien which is a all time classic so you might want to give that a go.


Some good science fiction/fantasy that I'm reading is:



Storm Thief


Wild Magic

Survivng Antartica


Inside Out

Incarceron (I think this would put under this category)

The Maximum Ride Series (again, not really sure if this is put under this category)


Some that I have already read and loved!


Unwind (highly recommend since I read it last summer and absolutely loved it!)

The L.O.S.T series


Gemma Doyle Trilogy


maybe check out my libray? I've already rated all the ones I've read
