“Messy” Book Series Checklist

Happy Easter, fellow book readers! I hope you’re having a marvelous day whether you celebrate “Zombie Jesus” day or not. 🙂

I’m sure we all have a favorite author or two who likes to make their book series “messy.” By that, I mean the series is difficult to keep track of. There are novels, sure, but then there may be novellas and short stories published in multiple anthologies or even on their website. Sometimes these “extras” go back in time, or even forward. Sometimes authors write multiple series that are interconnected and happen concurrently. Some of my favorite authors have created graphic novel additions to their series.

If, like me, you enjoy rereading series, preferably in their entirety and in chronological order, then these series can be hard to keep track of. They are for me. So one of my quarantine projects was to make a list of all the series I think I might want to reread and all the works in the series in chronological order. That way, when I go to reread them, I have a checklist to follow so I read the complete series in the right order.

Since I know I’m not the only obsessive reader out there, I thought I’d put this checklist in your Easter basket as well as mine. Click the Download button to get the spreadsheet.

This checklist spreadsheet contains over 100 series, mostly urban fantasy, some paranormal romance, a few sci-fi and historical fantasies. Some of the series are messy and some are pretty straightforward. I gleaned the order of messy series from Goodreads, author’s websites, and author notes in various anthologies. I also included in the list whether the work was available in audiobook, since I listen to audios frequently.

Now folks, I made this spreadsheet for me, based on what I’m reading. More than likely, that one series that you just LOVE won’t be on the list. That’s okay. One reason I’m sharing this checklist is to inspire you. You can download the spreadsheet and add a tab for your own favorite series using my template. Heck, you can do anything you want with this spreadsheet (other than claim it as your own and make money off it, natch). Customize it to your heart’s content.

For me, this spreadsheet is a living document. I’ll probably find formatting that needs fixed, errors that need correcting, series that I want to add or delete, and information I decide to add later. But hopefully, sharing it with you will introduce you to a new series, clue you in to a short or novella you haven’t read, or just inspire you to make your own list. However you decide to use it, I hope it brings you some enjoyment.

TitleWild Sign
AuthorPatricia Briggs
SeriesAlpha & Omega #6
Release date:  March 16, 2021
Description: In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It’s as if the people picked up and left everything they owned behind. Fearing something supernatural might be going on, the FBI taps a source they’ve consulted in the past: the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham. But Charles and Anna soon find a deserted town is the least of the mysteries they face.

Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous — and it has met werewolves before.

Series:  SPI Files #7
Release date:  March 9, 2021
Description:  As an agent of Supernatural Protection & Investigations (SPI), I know that evil doesn’t take a vacation, but this time it made an exception and followed me on mine.

I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI, and I’m taking my boyfriend, goblin dark mage Rake Danescu, home for the holidays to meet my family.

Weird Sisters is a small town in the North Carolina mountains that was built on a network of ley lines that magnify psychic and paranormal energies. It doesn’t show up on Google Maps, was named after the three witches in Macbeth, and the first word of the town name perfectly describes most of its human and supernatural citizens.

A stranger has come to town, bringing with him a dormant source of primordial evil. Soon, magically gifted locals start vanishing, and the power of the ley lines is turned against us, cutting us off from the outside world and any source of help.

For a town and its people steeped in magic, and my family sworn to protect both, it’s a race against time to use a local winter solstice phenomenon to free the town from its prison. But first, I must trust a father I’ve never known to fight and defeat an awakening evil that’s existed since the beginning of time. If we fail, and it is unleashed, the wor

It’s been a tough year for Lisa Shearin – like all of us.  She’s had a book release, Covid restrictions to adhere to, surgery, recovery and getting another book written.  If you haven’t read her last release The Entity Game, Aurora Donati #1, it’s really good and I enjoyed it.  The series that I really enjoy is the SPI Files, starring Makenna Fraser.   It’s hard to wait for the next book in a series for us readers, but just consider the author who runs the whole man show.  She is the author and runs the publishing company that publishes her stories.  It’s a big job, but totally worth it from my end of things (as a reader).  The news that I have is exciting to me because it’s a new release of the SPI Files series called The Solstice Countdown.  I have it on good authority (the author) that it will be available on March 9, 2021.  It’ll be awesome!
