I have become an avid reader of Star Trek books. I own quite a few and I am always looking for more. I started out buying them on ebay because you can usually get more than one at a good price (I still buy them there). I love them all and I can't get enough. I was just wondering what some of your favorite TNG books are.

I've just started reading TNG books, so I haven't read very many of them. But my favorite one that I've read so far is "Q-In-Law." If you are a fan of Q and/or Lwaxana Troi, than you will absolutely love this book! It's hilarious. I really wish they had made it into an episode.

Q in law - would have made for the funniest ep ever!!!


Imzadi - now why don´t they make this into a movie?


Q Squared - idemdito!


Spartacus - real TNG ep story


Perchance to dream - as a geographer, gotta love a species that shapes their world for fun!


Dragon´s Honour - another great (and funny) ep story.


 


Haven´t read everything though. Not even all of TNG.

"The Captain's Daughter" is good, too.  I also really enjoyed "Sarek" and "Prime Directive".

I haven't read any TNG books, so I appreciate your recommendations.

I love the Destiny series by David Mack and Klingon books, like A Burning House, by Keith DeCandido.

Forgot one of my favourites: Boogeymen. Somewhat akin to the Moriarty problem. For a change, Wesley is the one to get the Enterprise into trouble. Serious trouble... And just before the entire ship is destroyed, the solution comes from the most unexpected source!
Especially you, Crusherfan, will love this one, I think!

I probably would, thanks for the recommendation! I will definitely read it eventually. =) Right now I'm reading "TNG: Debtor's Planet." It's pretty good so far, but I'm not too far into it.

Yeah, that was a rather Wesley focused story, too, as I recall.
A few others that have Dr Crusher as a main character is The Death of Princes, and The Children of Hamlin.
She´s one of the main characters in A Hard Rain as well, but I didn´t particularly like that one. I´ve got nothing against detectives, but this one was far too predictable - before I was halfway through the book, I had already figured out what had happened...

Q-in law is my fave TNG book! But I love all of my TNG books, although some of them make me want to read them over and over, like Q-in law

Yes, Q-In-Law is my favorite too! So far at least. And thanks for all the suggestions Konarciq. I have definitely been looking for some books that focus on Beverly and Wesley Crusher! I have found plenty that focus on Wes, but I can't seem to find any that focus on Bev. She is hardly in the ones I've read at all!

I'm reading Engines of Eternity, it's a two part series, and if you like Engineering then you will probably enjoy it.

I'd be curious to see your list on Wesley. I've been re-watching TNG lately and it's made me want to find some books that focus on him or at least have him in the plot line!

From what I remember, looking at what I have here, Wesley has pretty important storylines in (as mentioned) Q in law, Boogeymen, and Debtor´s planet. Others I recall him in are A rock and a hard place, and Imzadi (as a grown up).

Thanks konarciq. I remember reading some of these as a kid, mainly Q in Law and Imzadi (love Peter David!). Which are ironically 2 of my favorite Star Trek books. I'll have to check out the others.

I've been really bored with television lately and missing Star Trek and so I figured I'd start reading some of the books again (which I did a lot as a teen, but haven't read so much as an adult).
