Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. 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.

" I am a man," he told her, "and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone, woman, and bring me something brown."

"Brown?" Isabella made a face.

"Brown is a manly color," said Jace, and yanked on a stray lock of Isabella's hair with his free hand. "In fact, look--Alec is wearing it."

Re: What are some good books to read?

His Dark Materials Series by Philip Pullman and Isabel Allende's City of The Beasts Series is also good if you're into fantasy , If you're looking for something a lil bit more serious then you should try Stieg Larssons books.

Re: What are some good books to read?

Ohh I loved Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series and enjoyed Isabel Allende's City of the Beasts as well. I still need to read Forest of the Pygmies, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is currently sitting on my shelf waiting to be read... can anyone recommend something like Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials to read? Loved that series, and am waiting for the Book of Dust.. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What are some good books to read?

Sorry if I repeat any books people have already suggested. This is one of those rare moments when B&N allows me to sign on lol so yea.

 

Here are some books although idk if you've read any yet.

 

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper
His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
The Heir Trilogy by Cinda Williams Chima

Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

 

And another series but it's not really teen. More like adult fantasy and I do say if you're not at least 16 then I don't reccomend them. Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. It's very detailed and graphic and stuff. They have a show based on the books called Legend of the Seeker.

 

But yea

 

Oh and I Love You Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. xD Happy reading!

The Book Thief is also pretty good I liked it a lot , the Charlie Bone series is also good some people may say that Charlie Bone is a lot like Harry Potter but I really liked them
