Novels in Order

Welcome to Novels in Order

We list series of popular books in order, aiming to help you avoid confusion, spoilers and general frustration.

The site was prompted by the experience of walking into a book store and seeing piles of interesting novels, and then being confronted by the realization that they formed part of a series and then having to find the first book to read.

It seems more and more authors are taking to the “franchise” approach to writing, no bad thing in our mind, but making it hard to keep track of what to read and when.

You can find links to books in order by Author, Character, Genre, and Series

In addition, we try to help answer the “which book should I read first?” question
