Recommended Reading Order
Readers often ask what reading order I recommend for my books. The honest answer is, “Whatever order you want!” But since that doesn’t seem to be very helpful, I’ve put this page together in an effort to make people feel more confident in which book they start with.
Tip 1: Start with a first book.
You can read my series (or stand alone novels) in any order, but you really should start with the first book within the series.
Here are the “first books” you can choose from:
Tip 2: Yes, really, you can start with ANY book one.
As you may have noticed elsewhere, some of my series and stand alones take place in the same universe. However, each series is written to stand on its own and is a complete story with a satisfying ending. Meaning, you can read one, or all of the series or stand alones within a universe and have a different but satisfying reading experience with a full conclusion.
Tip 3: Read in a genre you love.
The books shown above take place in three different universes. Each universe is a slightly different genre. If you love…
Older Young Adult/Adult, Fantasy Romance, Stand Alone – Read A Deal with the Elf King
Young Adult, Epic Fantasy Coming of Age, Sword and Sorcery, Slow Burn Romance – Read Air Awakens or Vortex Visions or A Trial of Sorcerers
Adult, Dark Epic Fantasy, Blood Magic, Deep Worldbuilding, Grit, Steampunk, Gaslamp – Read The Alchemists of Loom
Tip 4: Read the books within a series in order.
While you can start with any first book in a series, you should read the books within the series in numerical order. Meaning, if you decide to read Air Awakens you should start with Air Awakens and not Fire Falling.
However, my stand alones, like the Married to Magic universe, can be read in any order.
Tip 5: If you don’t like a book… try another!
As I mentioned, each one of my universes is different. Even the books within that universe are slightly different! If you try a book one and don’t enjoy it, put it down and grab a different book one. Life is too short to read books you don’t have good chemistry with.
Still Not Sure?
If you’re still not sure what book you should start with, I’ve made a fun quiz to help give you a suggestion of where to begin!
