Welcome to Books Reading Order

Discover new authors

Find new books to read next

Follow your favorite authors' new releases


We help you find authors, books and series with all their novels in proper reading order by known and new writers.


Some of the popular authors on Books in Reading Order are Lee Child, Harlan Coben, Larry Niven, Orson Scott Card, Robert Heinlein, and Jim Butcher. You will find the list of books based on their series, main characters, and genres.


Along with the publication order, you will also find the chronological order of the books to read. Some stories that take place earlier than others are written a few years later. Often this is the case with various prequels in the series.


Since there are literally thousands of authors who write book series across many genres, this list will be ongoing.


We will add new series as long as authors publish them. Series are added based on the author's popularity as well as based on readers' requests.
