"Strangers from the Sky" was a good read for me. I think that it's connections to WNMHGB were well done and I liked the period in which it was set, though "First Contact" changed that whole scenario. I liked that movie and realize that there was a need to set the movie for TNG, but I wish that the movie had been based on the former book.

I was quite partial to some of the Peter David books back in the day, but looking back a lot of them had pretty flimsy plots. He lost his touch a while back though.

Favourite book(s) are probably still a choice between Q-Squared and Imzadi.

Diane Carey's Final Frontier (NOT related to ST V) is excellent! If you really want to see how the voyages of the Enterprise started BEFORE Nero altered the timeline, read this. The Kobayashi Maru (Gotta love Kirk's cheat on this and Sulu's story was especially touching.), Diane Duane's My Enemy, My Ally is fantastic and Howard Weinstein's Covenant of the Crown is another early winner.

Kirk's cheat was used in Starfleet Academy as well
