The next book, The Room Service Murders, will be out in March 23 Keep up the good work!

This is the best site for what anyone is looking for, I thank you for your efforts. Is it possible for you to list the Star Wars and Star Trek books in order of publication, there are too many different authors of each series or is there web site to find that? Again thank you for all you have done

We do have listings for both:

https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/star-trek/ https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/star-wars/

Although I know the Star Wars one is out of date. Can be hard to keep up with all those 🙂 I think there are other websites dedicated to it like for Star Wars probably the Wookipedia.

Richman, Julie A Riley, Eugenia Mann, Jeana E Charles, Eva Walker, Ann Marie Romig, Aleatha Holland, Brittany Leigh, T K Roze, Robyn Toppen, Melissa Evans, A K Garey, Terri

And an interesting one – There is a co-writing duo, Brooke Cumberland and Lyra Parish, they write under the name Kennedy Fox. I cannot find any of the three.

I try to look throughly but if I’ve listed one that is already included please let me know.

Thanks! I’m close to being done with my library review so hopefully there won’t be too many more! Nancy

This is excellent Nancy. Thank you so much. Just to give you a little bit of behind the scenes info – I have a spreadsheet of over 10,000 author names still to add (and it is added to by the day). All authors are assigned a priority # from 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest. So when requests like this come in, I do some research on the authors and grade them on a variety of factors to determine who to add first.

Anyway despite having over 11,500 authors on the site we still get a lot of 10s and your list has I believe 6 of them that I classified that way. So thank you. Always surprises me seeing authors out there with such popularity that have never been requested before.

We also add content in advance and just did the data lock for October. What that basically means is those 10s will be added to the audit list in November, audited to get the lists 100% correct in December, and then posted to the site in January. So just wanted to clarify that in case you come back wondering why they aren’t on here yet next month 🙂

Do you have Lindsey Sparks on your author list? I couldn’t find her. Thank you.

Not yet. She is on our list of authors to add so this will help bump her up the priority list 🙂

Michael Gear and Terry C Johnson – western writers

Both already listed:

https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/w-michael-gear/ https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/terry-c-johnston/

How many authors do you havevon your lust to add?Just wondering.

As of this moment – about 6300. And we’re always discovering new authors every day to add.

Some time ago I requested that science fiction author Robert Heinlein be added, but he is still not listed here. Any reason why?

Hi Bill – Robert has been on the site since July 2015. https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/robert-a-heinlein/

There is a Stephanie Tromly so please add her. Don’t know the books she wrote? So far I’ve found these somewhere else… Trouble is a friend of mine Aug 4 2015 Trouble makes a comeback Nov 22,2016 Trouble never sleeps April 24 2018 Thank you

Thanks Lisa. Added Stephanie to our list of authors to add. Cheers

I’m going through all my books in my library app (and all of my books are physical copies) and keeping track of the missing authors here so I don’t bother you too often! Here’s my first grouping:

Winters, Annabelle Zama, Farahad Walker, Ann Marie Saman, J Hollins, Jamie Adams, Noelle Paige, Helena S

If you would prefer them one at a time just let me know.

Thanks!! Nancy

Thanks Nancy. Authors were either on our list and this has helped bump them up the priority list, or they’ve been added to the list 🙂 And it’s totally up to you whatever method is easier for you for submitting.

Jonas Jonasson books are great and I don’t see him. I loved “The 100 yr old man who climbed out the window and disappeared”. There are 2 additional books in that series.

Another easy way to remember these names, is to understand the context in which they were written, or know a little background about the book or its author . For example , the books written by Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Bhagat Singh etc., are often related to India and its freedom struggle. They were written during or just after India’s war of Independence, and that makes their names easier to remember and relate to. Another example is “The Diary of Anne Frank”, which was written by a little girl of 13, Anne Frank herself, who maintained a diary to record her daily life happenings during the time of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the period of Hitler’s atrocities on the Jews. So, knowing such details can help you remember important authors and their book titles.

It is also helpful if you keep yourself abreast with current GK, and know the popular books of the present time.

Their frequent appearance in popular culture makes it easier to remember their authors.

I have ordered some of his books. Same genre.

Hope all is well. Thank you!

Thanks Karen I have made a note for when we add Derek to make sure we catch that 🙂 Much appreciated.

I don’t know if I’m in the right place or not, but here are a couple of books I really enjoyed reading them, this was years ago.

Hi, my first time doing this, sorry but the info is a bit sketchy. 1. ‘Unbroken’ by Alister Mars (I think?). This is about a British submarine during WW2. The author is the skipper of said submarine. An excellent easy read, similar to “Three Corvettes” by Nicholas Monterrat. 2.Portrait of a bad man.No idea of the author, but an excellent read all the same. The man who it portrays is a ruthless scheming character, and the scrapes he got into, and how he got out them!!

Both books mentioned are true, and really happened.

Can you add Carrie Stuart Parks and Chautona Havig. Both have series as part of their work. Thanks.

I’ve added both to our list of authors to add.

Could Alaric Bond be added?

Yep we’ll have Alaric up in March. Cheers

I have 2 requests. Please add (1) Heather Webber and (2) Amanda Feyerbend to your lists. Thank you!

Will do! Heather is in our database ready to add so will bump her up the list and get her added in March. Amanda may be a month or two after that.

Please consider adding Scott Graham and his National Park Murder Series. Thank you

Thanks Stephen – added to our list of authors to add. Should be up next month. Cheers

You might want to consider adding Steve Higgs “Albert Smith’s Culinary Capers” series.

Thanks Kent will get them added next month 🙂

All Steve Higgs’s books are good. please also add D. L. Keur. Her mystery series with dogs is excellent.

Leonardo Padura! From Cuba, Padura is a highly thought -of author, reknowned for his Mario Conde series, as well as several stand-alone novels. First book is “Havana Blue”, 1991. Essential to read in order, as Conde ages and becomes more and more disaffected with his place both in the Havana police department and life in general. Strong characters, local color, great literary writing, convoluted plots.

Thanks Brian. Both your suggestions have been added to our authors list to add. And good point about the leave a reply box I’ll see about getting that changed.

Missing Authors:

Clifford Simak David Gerrold (The Trouble With Tribbles)

I can provide a list of books

Thanks Richard. Both are in our database ready to add. Will have them both up in April

I love your site. It has been so helpful to me. Please add Emily King to your list. She is worth reading

Happy to have discovered this site but you are missing the author I was searching for. Cordelia Castel. She has more than one series that are interrelated and I would like to read them in order.

Is there any way to rearrange the author’s by last name?

Please consider adding Anne Morice to your list. Her British detective is an actress so lots of fun theatre mysteries!

Some of my favorites not listed Benjamin Black, Kate Stabenow and Spencer Quinn. Hope they will turn up soon. Love this site. [email protected]

My name is Katharin Ridgeway. I have published 2 works, Nutmeg and The Aldens of Dyarsburgh-Nutmeg Book 2

Please add Allan Topol to your authors list. Thanks.

Re Reckoning by John Grisham Terrible book; Part 2 “The Boneyard” about 120 pages is your typical war/prisoner of war narrative. Yes he survives and comes home; Yes there was a reason he committed the murder; Usual legal courtroom dealings that we Grisham readers are used to.

I LOVE THIS SITE!!!! I have already saved it on my Laptop, iPad, iPhone & Smartphone. I’ve also already sent out a txt msg to ALL my Family & Friends AND sent out an email to ALL of my co-workers telling them about this site!!!!

I would LOVE it if you could add more Fantasy Authors and more Fantasy Books to your site.

For instance: Aimee Easterling, Anita Oh, C.J. Pinard, C.M. Owens, Christine Pope, Chrissy Peebles, Claire Farrell, Dale Mayer, Darla Dunbar, J.C. Diem, Jennifer Snyder, K.A. Poe, Kaitlyn Davis, Karen Kincy, Kristen Middleton, Rebecca A. Rogers, Robert J. Crane, SM Reine, Sarra Cannon, S.T. Bende, Stacy Claflin, and W.J. May.

I would LOVE to THANK YOU for making such an EXTRAORDINARY SITE! I REALLY DO APPRECIATE ALL THE EXTRA HARD WORK AND LOOOONG HOURS that have gone into making and keeping up this EXTRAVAGANT SITE!!!! Keep it up!!

I too, have just discovered this web site. Only to wish i had learned of it earlier. Having been a reader of William W. Johnstone for several years, first discovering Smoke Jensen, as the nine foot tall wearing a blue cape, gunfighter for the underdog in the fiction land of the western country, called the wild west. True it was a wild country but only in the sense of unexplored and un-mapped. The storied written of the new Western country is fiction to its best, though I’m sure somewhere in the stories there is a spot of truth how ever small.

I noticed I couldn’t find Rob Jones

I’ve noticed there aren’t many (if any at all) books by fantasy authors such as Jennifer Roberson (one of my favs). Are there going to be lists for fantasy authors here? I’d really LOVE to see her and others on here.

Please add Ashley Farley to your list of authors.

I’m wondering why only some authors are on your website and others are not. I find this site very useful when finding a “new” author, as I like to make sure I read a series in order. But not all authors are on here. Why is that.

Well there’s a lot of authors out there. We add as many as we can but it’s generally based on popularity and requests.

I love Fantasy books and read all kinds. That includes teen and young adult. Any chance of adding books by Obert Skye?

I love this site and have used it many times. Please add author Barbara Wood as soon as possible, Thanks!

How about author Tom Savage?

What about Tom Savage?

Looking for list of books by Ethan Jones

Please add me and my books: David VanDyke, http://www.davidvandykeauthor.com

Great site. I will be using it often.

Please add Calle J. Brookes. I am just finishing her FBI: PAVAD series. Up next is her Findley Creek books. Thank you.

becky wade order of books written

Just found this page, thanks! I’ve used http://www.stopyourekillingme.com/ for years, but it only works for the mystery series. I used https://www.fantasticfiction.com/ for non mysteries, but wasn’t entirely happy with it. I think this site will be perfect!

Thank you!!!

what happened to paullina simons listing?

Was she on the site at some point, or are you asking about a request?

She is so prolific please add her to your list. In order to sort through the Bronze Horseman series an order would be helpful. I so admire her writing that I would appreciate help in watching her style develop. Thanks

Please add Alma Alexander to your list. She has published more than a score of fantasy novels, including two YA series, and an adult fantasy, The Secrets of Jin-shei, now out in 13 languages.

I’d love to see Jack McDevitt’s books – a favorite scifi author!

Organizing author names into 43 random groups identified numerically is incredibly obtuse (they’re not even broken out alphabetically? That’s weird), and the search engine returns sadly disorganized results that rarely help me find what I’m after.

Do you have a list of A.M. Delamonica’s books on your site?

Yep http://www.orderofbooks.com/authors/am-dellamonica/

Holly Chamberlin has written many enjoyable books. Just finished Seashell Season.

I love this site and use it frequently. How about adding Deborah Coonts, and her Lucky series?

A great site! There are two series by me (Nik Morton) published by Crooked Cat (UK) not listed. Tana Standish psychic spy (#1The Prague Papers, #2 The Tehran Text) and Catherine Vibrissae, the ‘avenging Cat’ (#1 Catalyst, #2 Catacomb, #3 Cataclysm).

I’ve looked for Mary Anna Evans before and you still don’t have her Archaeology inspired mysteries listed. Hope you have her listed her soon.

Hi Please add Peter Clines to your list – I’ll get together his list of books and send it to you if you need me to but in the meantime here is this: https://www.fantasticfiction.com/c/peter-clines/ with a bibliography and a bio. I own all of them and this list is current as of today Aug 02, 2016. Great author in many areas, in my opinion.

I use this site often to determine which book comes next in a series that I am enjoying. I cannot find Elizabeth Hunter who writes several romantic fantasy series including the Irin Chronicles, the Elemental Mysteries, and Elemental World series. I hope to see Elizabeth Hunter included soon.

Could you please add the book list for Dianne Duvall and Caris Roane? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

How about James Carol author of the Jefferson Winter series?

I love this site. It’s absolutely the best resource for finding a newly discovered author’s complete catalogue. However, no William Golding, “Lord of the Flies” (for which he won a Nobel Prize) and “Rite of Passage”.

Excuse me. Thank you for your wonderful site. When you are able to get to it, could you please include Mark Hodder? Thank you so much.

William Deverell, Canada’s top crime writer and onr of most honored

Does anyone know this book and/or author: A man goes to see his father who has cancer. His father asks him to go to Mexicali to find a prostitute. It is a mystery/thriller book. My husband wants to read it and lost the link.

am now reading jane thynne and just found out there are more than the secret of scents…..

can you add Julie Carobini?

Author Robert Marcello please. For example, Check out ” The Einstein Prophecy”. It’s got late WWII, Egyptian tombs, hidden forces of good and evil, secret Einstein stuff. What’s not to like!

Nicholas Guild please.

We just found this site! thankyou! it’s great. We are readers of Juliet Mariller books but could not find her listed here. Does she have another name perhaps?

Thanks for the suggestion Chris – we’ve added it to her list and will have her up soon.

Just read a Wishcraft Mystery by Heather Blake-pretty good! Could you please add her to your author list? I would like to be able to access these on Order of Books. Thanks, Kay

Thanks for the suggestion Kay. We’ve got the list of her books all written up and added to our database. Just have to write up the bio and get it posted hopefully within a week.

Please add Denise Grover Swank. She has several series (about 6) and is a great author!

On our list – will get Denise up soon 🙂 Thanks for the suggestions

Could You add Dorothy Eden, Charlene Weir and M.D. Lake to your To-Do List? Thanks!

Have been enjoying the Poldark series by Winston Graham and would love to see his books listed in Order Of Books. There has been an increase of interest in his books since the Poldark series was recently on TV.

Just found and bookmarked this site. Spending a little time everyday searching for favorite authors especially the ones with hard to find books.

I just discovered Thor Heyerdahl and his book Kon-Tiki: across the Pacific by raft. I know he has written a number of books, but I do not see his name listed on this website. I was very happy to see all of Robert Parker’s books and have read most of them. Did not care very much for the ghost writers which his wife and family had employed to continue the series. There are still many of his books I have not read yet, so I will stick with him. Thank you for setting up this website. It is very useful and user friendly.

Still not been able to find author Gunther Lutz included in your authors list. James Hadley Chase is now available thank you.

We’ll do our best to get him up soon.

No, Jack Higgins?

Please add C. L. Bevill.

Great site. I also use KDL.org for their “What’s Next” link.

e.e. Doc Smith ? Lensmen series

Please add Tracy L. Higley to your list. Thanks.

Please add Michelle Diener to your list! She has a short series about a real man and woman from the era of Elizabeth I; and some set in Regency England……they are good, and I highly recommend them!

I use “order of books” very frequently to try to read books in the order in which they author published them and in which they were meant to be read! Great site!

I just found about the Canadian “Hercule Poirot” character Emile Cinq-Mars. The books are written by John Farrow. I’d like to see this series added to the list.

Thank you for listing the Making of America by Lee Davis Willoughby! It’s so long I despaired of ever finding a complete listing of it. You should add more of the “produced by Lyle Kenyon Engel” series–they all tend to be lengthy. Also J. T. Edson (if you need help on that, I have one), not great literature, but quite popular and still collected by Western lovers; Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna (old but fondly remembered by many); Janice Holt Giles (Cooper-Fowler Family and others).

Is it possible to search by name of series? Some users might not be able to remember the name of an author.

Oh my goodness, my heart gave an extra beat when I saw the name, Jalna. I am homesick to go there, at least one more time. I didn’t know there was anyone left to relate to the WhiteOaks.

I am a fan of Tony Park and hope to see him here soon.

Can you please Author Hope Callaghan to your list? She writes women sleuths cozy mysteries. Her info http://www.hopecallaghan.com Thank you!

Looking for Peter Straub Books

How do I add my books here, please?

You’re doing a fine job. Keep up the good work!

James Hadley Chase is missing!

Please add Helen Hanson, thriller writer to your list when you can. Author of 4 books and 1 more on the way, she is very good. http://www.amazon.com/Helen-Hanson/e/B004FD2MR2/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1 Thanks.

How about Emma Jameson-I couldn’t find any of her books listed here.

Author Marne Davis Kellogg, would love to see her books here.

I have just found this site and like others, wish I’d found it sooner. I love it and bookmarked as one of my favourites! I am always on the look out for new Authors to read I’d love to see an option for Authors to be listed in genre’s, rather than having to click on each one to see what they write?

Kent Haruf is missing.

No Amanda Ashley?

What about Cassie Laurent? She has quite a few books and the different series can be quite confusing. Thanks.

There are a bunch of excellent authors here. I’m surprised that Fredrick Manfred, Vardis Fisher, Harvey Ferguson, and John Neihardt aren’t included. They were great Western writers.

Just discovered this site. Great resource for staying up to date on my favorite book series. Just finished an excellent book that came out early last year: The Devon Proposition by D.R. Braddy. I recommend it to anyone who’s into action/adventure.

Love your site. Please add author John Mortimer and his Horace Rumpole books. Thanks.

Now that said, I can’t find Sax Rohmer, (real name, Henry Ward) a prolific English novelist. He is best remembered for his series of novels featuring the master criminal Dr. Fu Manchu, but he wrote others too. I’ve looked under both Sax, Henry, and Dr. If I’ve overlooked it somehow, would you please steer me to it?

We’d love to have every author ever available on this site, but unfortunately we can only do one at a time (if we’re expected to have any sort of quality whatsoever). Your request has been acknowledged and Sax has been moved closer to the top of our “to do” list!

Thank you, Brandon.

I can’t believe I’m the first to say this, and I’m sorry to feel the need, because I really do appreciate all you’ve done on this site. For those who love serial books this is awesome. But when your listing authors or books alphabetically, it would make a whole lot of sense to give us A – Z links to jump nearer to what we are searching for, than simply giving us a numerical page list and making us guess as to how far in our author or book might be, thereby having to wade through pages and pages of stuff to get there. Like the example below.

Sorry to say, but you’re not the first person to say that. 🙂

We’d love to add a system like this in the future.

Looking forward to that day. It’s really isn’t difficult to do, just requires a bit of time, some shifting, and renaming of pages.

Great site. I go to it often. Can you list Jess Walter? Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion!

I’d like to see Kristina Ludwig’s series of Amish fiction novels. I think the first one is Amish Baby. I’d like to see her novels on this site. Thank you!

Thanks, Nancy!

Is there a reason that author John Wayne Falbey’s series Sleeping Dogs and Endangered Species are not listed? I just discovered them and at first found it difficult to figure out the sequencing of the various series due to similar titles. Thus I came to OOB for guidance only to find out they are not listed. That was disappointing! Otherwise, I love this site although it has made me a bit lazy!

The only reason would be not enough people have requested him, as you just have. Thanks!

What a useful site and tool. Now on my favorites list.

Could you please add Cassie Laurent?

Added her to our “to do” list! Thanks! (And sorry for the delay in response.)

Please add https://www.goodreads.com/author/list/167605.Guillermo_del_Toro He is probably best known for his movie directing now but is a very good novelists, best known for the Strain Trilogy. I looked under G and T, and under Strain Trilogy with no luck. Thanks for considering my request

Moved him up our “to do” list thanks to your request. Sorry for the delay in response!

looking for William Lashner, a terrific author

He’s listed! http://www.orderofbooks.com/authors/william-lashner/

found him, thanks

What about JS Scott? She has quite a few books.

You are missing Mary Coneally; fab christian romance writer, women have a can do attitude, men are dimensional, good, bad, real. Turn of the century, old West.

This is a wonderful site. Where is Robert Silverberg?

Just discovered this marvelous site. Thank you. Thank you

I love this site! I have found it most helpful over the past year. I was wondering why I could not find any listing of Pulitzer Prize Winner Alice Munro?

Thanks for the comments, Nadine! Alice was one tier down from being added to the site, so you can take credit for getting her added very soon!

I would like Robinson Wells on the site. Thanks! Your site is very helpful.

No Todd McCaffrey?

How often does ORDER OF BOOKS update authors booklists? Thank you!

Thank you! I try to finish at least one book a day, and absolutely love series, where my favorites will keep appearing. Wonderful site, and will follow and access via Facebook.

I use your site constantly. Would you please add Qiu Xiaolong’s Inspector Chen series and his other works?

I shot him right up there for you. Thanks for the request!

What about adding Red Phoenix as an author?

Thanks for the request!

Where are the Charlie Steel books?

If enough people are looking for him, I will add him to the site!

Very helpful site… perhaps you could include Carol Davis Luce in your authors list.

Ivan Doig writes superb novels, but is not in your authors list.

KATHRYN LE VEQUE. I’d love to see her books listed here. She has written so many Historical Medieval romantic adventures.

Would like the “Midwife” books by Sam Thomas listed. His third one is coming out in January.

Craig Russell should be in there, gentlemen

Is there a way to search out authors who write action suspense on your site?

Besides writing it in a search box, not really, unfortunately. I’m not sure I’ve ever used that term for a genre, but you can look up an author in that genre and maybe there will be others listed with it under “If you like…”. Adding a genre section to the site is one of my goals, but to properly index them would take a long time.

Very helpful site! Gillian Roberts’ Amanda Pepper series isn’t represented, though. You may want to consider adding. Thanks!

I didn’t see this post until now, but Gillian is now up and Amanda will soon follow.

Love this. wish could have found it sooner

Love the site! Opened up a whole new world. Thank you very much

Would like Sean Black to your list. Most of his novels are 4 star

Just came across this site …..my! Am thrilled to see all my favorite authors and new authors to read, wish I had this years ago! It is sometimes hard to remember who wrote which character ? Just great to get on here and surf for hours! I am a voracious reader, 7 books a week! Sometimes, So always looking for new (to me) authors to read! My favorite is Alex Cross. Michael Bennett Series! I don’t normally read books with co-authors with the exception of Lee Child and Douglas Preston, so I am glad I tried Michael Bennett series… Otherwise James Patterson is my favorite when he writes alone! MC Beaton’s Hamish Mc Beth Diana Gabaldan ( only historical books I have read ) Jan Karon Andrew Greely Both Kellerman’s Ian Rankin Robert Parker Could go on for hours! Like all kinds of books except Western, Sci Fi and Histerical Romances! If a book makes me laugh? So much better! My favorite is Mystery Novels , but I like series where characters come alive ! Learn new things about new places, places I will never. Visit but can visualize through books !

Was looking for a list of Jeremiah Healy books. Especially with his obituary in today’s newspaper.

Looking for books by Chris Knopf with main character Sam Acquillo please

He just happened to be at the very top of our list, so he’ll be added very shortly.

A very Scary Author Malachi Martin, Exorcist for the Vatican, unfortunately is not list. Will just keep an eye on Orson S. Card, Dan Simmons, and Jeff Sharra for new releases.

Thank you for the request!

Unfortunately, you have none of the authors or series listed on your website I’m currently interested in. Boo-hoo!

Tell us what you want to see added!

Richard Stevenson, John Morgan Wilson, Joseph Hansen, Mark Richard Zubro

I would like to see Joanna Campbell-Slan added to list

Hi, Brandon! Please add Joan Johnston when you get a chance. Thanks! Love this site bunches … I can’t seem to do without it on a daily basis.

Would like to see Grant McKenzie on the list. Thanks, Paul.

Fabulous site – just found you and am so happy!! Thank you very much for your hard work! I have a great author for you to add – Clinton Mckinzie. His main character is Special Agent Antonio Burns and he is a rock climber and a bit of a rebel. Have read them all – suspense, action and legal thrills – great reads!

Okey doke, here are some more you might consider for your list: Tonya KAPPES Terri REID Regan BLACK Irina SHAPIRO Cynthia SAX Thanks

May I suggest that, instead of page numbers, you list the pages as Ray-Robert M, Robert R.-Simon, etc. Looking for an author whose first name comes in the middle of the alphabet is a guessing game to find the correct page. Thanks.

This is an excellent suggestion. If there is a way to do this without having to do it manually, we’d strongly consider it.

Another author add request: Jane K. Cleland and her series of Josie Prescott antiquarian mysteries. Thanks.

Would you consider putting the following authors up on your site? Ella Price, Felicity Heaton, Lisa Renee Jones, Jasmine Haynes, Azure Boone, JM Madden, JS Luxor, Amy Cross and Rita Hestand. More to come.

Thanks! Send as many requests as you like. They all count.

Thank you Brandon. My first ever posting on your site was a bit curt and I apologize for that.

Can’t believe Jacquelyn Mitchard is not included on your site

There’s a lot of authors that I can’t believe are not on this site yet! But I usually add authors based on what the visitors want to see, so Ms. Mitchard is now one step closer to being added. 🙂

I notice you’re in high demand and a bit backed up, whereas I am an unemployed librarian who loves your site and would treasure some online work. Just sayin’ ….

Unfortunately, we’re not currently hiring, but please send your contact info to us at [email protected] incase that changes.

suggesting michael ridpath, who writes thrillers

Can you add Anne Tyler and Kazuo Ishiguro please. Love this site. I use it all the time.

I appreciate your work and your list but I think both titles should be shown to avoid confusion. I have The Mysterious Aviator and no where does it mention a second title. I have just read Wikipedia and I see the American version is TMA; the English version So Disdained.

Why is THE MYSTERIOUS AVIATOR not listed with other Neville Schute books?

Because it’s listed under its other title of “So Disdained.” There’s a note at the bottom.

I would love to see Barbara Hambly’s books added to this page. Awesome site!

Just stumbled onto this site and made my day. I love Evelyn Anthony and noticed she is not listed. Thanks!

I’d like to see “Blood Coven” Novels by Marianne Mancusi

Thanks! She’s just moved closer to the top on our “to do” list.

I’ve just discovered this terrific site, and wish I’d discovered it a lot sooner. Thank you!

James carlos Blake ?

I would like more info on Zoe Sharpe A Nottingham UK writer

Great website! Use it just about every day! Please add Catherine Anderson when you get a chance. Thanks!

David Handler

Looking for Robert Harris (Enigma; Fatherland)

Looking for Ally Condie

I’m a fan of Sharyn McCrumb, particularly the Ballad series and the Elizabeth MacPherson novels. Hope to see her here soon. Thanks.

She’s not far down our “to do” list and she just got closer to the top!

I love this site! Creating a lending library for my sorority. Could you please add Karen Harper to the list? We love romantic/suspense. Thank You!!!!

Jim Kelly please.

I don’t find Anna Quindlen. Am I missing it or can it be added? I , too recently found this site and it is indeed excellent and fills a real need for the many book lovers that want to read titles in order. Thanks, Carol

Why no listing for Colin Cotterill?

There’s no reason why we don’t have any author on the site other than not enough people want them up yet (and we can only put them up so fast). However, Colin is almost at the very top of our list of authors to add, so he should be up very soon!

Toby Neal’s “Lei Crime” series

Please could you add Anne Bennett, I am so confused with her books as she has written 6 that link in together about the sullivan family, have read most of them but didn’t realise their significance till I had given them away, now collecting them again and would love to read them in order. This is a fantastic site and really useful, thanks for all your hard work!!

I can add her to our to do list, but until then, I think I can help out with a more immediate solution. (And thanks for the kind words!)


Thank you for this link, do you have any idea why there are 2 books with the same title but different pictures on the front included in the 6 books? Could it be that there are in fact only 5 books in the Sullivan series?

I apologize for the delay in the response. It would be an alternate cover of some sort.

Also, the “Good Reads” site shows publication dates: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/368018.Anne_Bennett

Hi could you please add Stephen Harding? Thanks!

While our focus is fiction, I’ve added him to my list.

I like your site. It’s great for chasing down SciFi books. But I didn’t see Jasper Fforde who writes the Thursday books and others.

Jasper was right on the brink of being added before your recommendation. Expect to see him added soon. Thanks!


Could you add Lauren Willig?

Please consider adding Greig Beck

What a delightful (and useful!) surprise to find your site. Would you consider listing Amy Tan?

Thank you so much! She’s actually at the top of my to do list here, and with your request, that puts her at the very top. She’ll be up in the next few days.

Excellent site … but where is William Makepeace Thackeray? I also don’t see Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.

They weren’t even on our to do list until you mentioned them. Happy to add them to it though. Thanks!

Thanks for all your hard work added to favorites

Love this site…please add Ivan Doig

The instant New York Times bestseller featuring everyone’s favorite family—the Baxters—in a deeply emotional novel “faithful fans will no doubt relish” ( Publishers Weekly ).

When John Baxter is asked to relive his long-ago love story with his wife Elizabeth for his grandson Cole’s heritage school project, he’s not sure he can do it. The sadness might simply be too great—after a storybook romance that lasted almost thirty years, beginning when the two were in college, Elizabeth tragically died of cancer. But John can’t say no to his grandson and in the process of telling his love story, he finally allows his heart and soul to go places they haven’t gone in decades. Back to the breathless first moments, but also to the secret heartbreak that brought John and Elizabeth together…

Cole’s report on his grandparents touches the hearts of the entire family—and causes Cole to better understand his own beginning.

Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, Love Story will stir your heart and remind you of the generational impact of love and the eternal bond of family.

With perfect pacing and riveting characters, Serle’s adult and YA novels alike deliver poignant heartbreak and exciting triumph. All of her books deliver some truth about the human experience, but in particular, The Dinner List manages to hit all spots on the emotional spectrum. The story follows a woman named Sabrina, who turns up to her 30 th birthday to a huge surprise. Prior to the dinner, she made a hypothetical list of the five people, living or dead, that she’d want to have dinner with — and magically, that list comes to life. She’s surrounded by her best friend, three significant people from her past, plus Audrey Hepburn. This tender, thoughtful book shows the way people shape our lives, for better or worse, and what we can learn even when they’re no longer with us.

Rooney follows the pair through their lives and lets us in on the most intimate part of them as they navigate trauma and experience, never quite able to hold on to each other.  You can also find Rooney’s short stories, essays, and poems in places like the Dublin Review and the New Yorker .

Lisa Jewell: The queen of domestic thrillers, Lisa Jewell is known for her bestselling novels that are the definition of page-turners. Jewell’s ten novels are all equally captivating, but her blockbuster hit , Then She Was Gone , or her latest, The Family Upstairs , are great introductions to the riveting world that is reading Lisa Jewell.  The Family Upstairs is as much a contemporary drama as it is a thriller, as we follow Libby Jones on her journey of discovering her birth parents that involves secrets, terror, and disappearing children. If you’re a fan of Ruth Ware and haven’t yet read Lisa Jewell, we highly recommend that you start now.

Kafka on the Shore

Haruki Murakami: Japanese writer Haruki Murakami is a prolific bestselling author whose books have been translated into fifty languages and have sold millions of copies outside of Japan. Murakami is noted for his somewhat absurdist humor in his writing, as well as many traditional elements of Japanese literature. Among his many notable novels, Kafka on the Shore follows two distinct plots. In one, a fifteen-year-old boy named Kafka goes on a journey to escape an oedipal curse and find his family. In the other, a cat-finder named Nakata realizes that his path is changing. Murakami’s writing blends so many elements of literature—like humor, magical realism, suspense, and more—and he is truly one of the most groundbreaking writers of our time.

books author name list

Kafka on the Shore is powered by two remarkable characters: a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long-missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons that, like the most basic activities of daily life, he cannot fathom. As their paths converge, and the reasons for that convergence become clear, Haruki Murakami enfolds readers in a world where cats talk, fish fall from the sky, and spirits slip out of their bodies to make love or commit murder.

The book follows two families in New York City during the financial crisis; an immigrant family from Cameroon, the Jonga family, and their wealthy employers, the Edwards family. Mbue is a smart writer with a background in business, and her understanding of the system is clear as she explores how American bureaucracy works to protect the wealthy and keep away “outsiders.” Mbue is an incredible writer, which is evident in her short stories and essays as well, all of which are moving and feature her signature prose and social commentary.

As the story alternates between Jende and Neni and speeds perilously close to economic disaster, they learn about privilege, pride, and impossible choices.

In Mongrels , Jones tells the story of a young boy who lives on the outskirts of society in a world that shuns and fears him. This coming of age book makes us question what it means to be ordinary and puts Jones’ talents as a horror writer on display- the book is sometimes grisly, but it is often poignant and emotional, and makes the supernatural seem very human. Luckily, you have lots to read if you become a fan of Stephen Graham Jones; to date, he has published 22 books and counting—his next novel, Only Good Indians, is highly anticipated and publishes this May.
