    I LOVE THIS SERIES!

  • A_Noid

    The movie I liked, so I wanted to read the series, but this site doesn’t really do a very good job showing the order published. They need to be more specific than just the year it looks like to me.

      Hey,

      As we state just before the list – it’s the same chronological order as publication order. So yes despite the confusing titles, you will read them in the order listed by year :)

      • A_Noid

        Unfortunately, since they are listed in the same years that doesn’t help much. Ill have to find the exact release dates I guess.

      I’ll see what I can do about a combined order.
