If you have played the videogames you definitely have to give these books a chance. Five Nights at Freddy’s is an indie video game series designed, created and published by Scott Cawthon.

In the games the player takes the role of a nightime security guard who has to check the security cameras in a pizza restaurant (Freddy’s) known for its animatronic fluffy robots. It would seem like an easy job, if it wasn’t for the fact that five of these animatronics will come to life during the night, and they will try to kill you. Which you might agree is quite a nuisance.

However, this does not imply that you can enjoy these novels if you haven’t played the videogames. The premise of this story is quite simple, there’s a pizzeria that is sort of haunted, in which there are some animatronic robots that get alive during the night and have quite a killer instinct. By knowing this you are more than ready to go.

Now that you have Five Nights at Freddy’s books in order you can start reading this series. Also, if you like fun books you can check the Dog Man books in order.

We collected all the Harry Hole books in order by Jo Nesbo, this incredibly popular series by author Jo Nesbo tells us about a Norwegian detective who is as brilliant as willing to self-destruct. This international bestseller has been translated into several languages and has sold millions of copies worldwide.

The good news is, that there are many crimes to solve by this flawed detective, so you’ll have plenty of entertainment. let’s see how you should read these novels.

Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole books in order

Here you have the Harry Hole series in order of publication (which is how we recommend you read these novels). You can get any of these books by author Jo Nesbo by clicking on their cover:

There’s quite a lot, don’t you think? and there’s more to come! there’s going to be another book in the series. We already know its title, Killing Moon, and its release date (May 2023).

Also, if you want to start reading the novels by Jo Nesbo then this book set might be a great starting point:

It’s worth mentioning that the books included in the box set shown above are not the first 8 volumes in the series. In fact, this is just a compilation of Jo Nesbo’s books, which means that not all of them belong to the Harry Hole series. Despite this, it happens to be quite a cheap set, so it might serve you as a base to start collecting the books by this author.

Now that you know the order of the Harry Hole books don’t miss these series

There are never enough crimes to solve, don’t you think? we do! that’s why here are some series that have a similar tone to the Harry Hole books by Jo Nesbo:

No products found.

One of our suggestions is Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar series, people who enjoy the Harry Hole novels usually enjoy these books as well so make sure you give them a chance. It also happens to be quite long and is composed of more than 10 volumes.

We also believe you’ll fancy the popular novels by author Lee Child, so here’s a list with the Jack Reacher books in order.

Harry Hole series in order
Harry Hole series in order

The Harry Hole series by Jo Nestbo tells us about a young brilliant detective from Norway. He is a tortured man who has an interesting backstory (you’ll have to read the books to know about it). In summary, he’s just a mess, however, he has a talent for solving crimes.

Funnily, the first two novels in the series don’t take place in Norway but in Australia and Thailand respectively. However, in both cases, the crime to solve is related to a murder of a Norwegian citizen.

While the general opinion is that the first 2 books are not the most compelling, and knowing that all these novels are self-conclusive, it might be tempting to skip those. However, we strongly advise you to read the Harry Hole books in order of publication, therefore, not skipping The Bat and Cockroaches, this way you’ll see how the main character’s personality develops along the series.

The characters in the story are usually relatable, however, there’s a high chance they will end up dead in the next chapter so don’t get too attached to any of them. Additionally, the plot in the Harry Hole novels is usually complex and well built, Jo Nesbo has an innate ability to create intricate thrilling stories with plenty of mysteries that will gradually unravel.

List of the Harry Hole books in order by Jo Nesbo

Here’s a list of the Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbo in order of publication, as said before, it is not concluded and so far it’s composed of 13 volumes. However, since each of these books is self-conclusive, you don’t have to wait for the next installment to start reading it.

We have a list with the Devil’s Night series in order, the incredibly popular dark romance series written by author Penelope Douglas. The first couple you will meet is Erika and Michael, yes, you guessed it, each of the novels in the series focus on a different romance, however, all the characters are introduced in the previous books.

Do you hate cliffhangers? great! because there’s none in the series. Each of the novels are self-conclusive, so they can be read as a standalone (keep reading because there’s a big but here).

Devil’s Night book series in order by Penelope Douglas

Here you have a list with all the Devil’s Night books in order. You can get any of the novels in the series by clicking on their cover:

Dark covers, don’t you think? they look a little grim indeed. Also, they may look kind of misleading, because there are no paranormal events taking place in this series. Also, it might be worth mentioning that out of the 6 covers shown below two of 2 are not books but novellas (Conclave and Fire Night)

Now that you know the Devil’s Night series order don’t miss these novels

Are you craving for more romance stories like this? fear not, here are 3 great book suggestions:

If you love Penelope Douglas’ writing then your next read should be The Fall Away series, which is quite similar in structure to the Devil’s Night books. That is, each of the novels also focus on a different romance, however, their events are connected.

We also recommend you take a look at this post with the Briar U series in order, this is also a romance story (not dark, though) that centers on the characters of the same high school.

Also, do you like erotic novels? if so, don’t miss this post with books like The Crossfire series, you’ll love all the recommendations.

What is this story about?

devil's night series order
Devil’s Night series order

This story begins telling us about Erika (Rika), she sent 3 boys to prison a few years ago and she’s oblivious that they are waiting to take revenge. To make things worse, they happen to be the best friends of her ex boyfriend’s brother… disclaimer: this series has lots of sex scenes.

Three years ago, Erika “Rika”, did something bad and sent Michael’s three best friends to jail. Now they are out, and the four men want payback. Rika has left the safety of her relationship with Michael’s younger brother and their small town and transferred to a new college in the city where Michael lives. This puts her exactly where the four men want her, in their grasp.

Do you want to become a know-it-all of this series? if so, you shouldn’t miss the bonus content. Author Penelope Douglas provides a lot of interesting info such as a timeline, a family tree, deleted scenes, and even a map of Thunder Bay.

Also, while it’s true that these novels can be read as standalone, we recommend you read the Devil’s Night book series in chronological order, and that includes the 2 novellas. Each of these stories centers on a different romantic relationship, however, the events that take place in each have a heavy impact on the subsequent books, that’s why it is important that you read them the way we suggested you.

Fun coincidence (or maybe not as coincidental as we think) book 3 in the Devil’s Night series is 666 pages long. As you may know, that is the Number of the Beast, which in the Christian religion is widely considered the symbol of the Antichrist (the devil).

Also, here are some popular quotes from the first novel in the series, in case you are curious about the way it’s written:

A list of the Devil’s Night series in order of publication

Here goes a list of the Devil’s Night series in order of publication:

As said before, there is a total of 4 Devil’s Night books and 2 novellas. The series is concluded, however, seeing how successful this series has been it is hard to imagine that there won’t be more books, maybe a spin-off series? who knows, so far author Penelope Douglas has not issued any news regarding this, but we’ll keep you posted. Would you like this series to have more books or are you satisfied by how the series already ends?

Also, did you notice that this series is self-published? yes! despite the fact that indie publishing makes it tougher to authors to get recognition and reach a wider audience this didn’t prevent author Penelope Douglas to become a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Congratulations to her!

Are you thrilled about authors who became successful despite not being backed by a big publishing company? the same happens with fantasy author Michael J. Sullivan, here you have a post with the Riyria Chronicles in order, his most popular series.

We hope you enjoy this dark romance! also, tell us if you are going to read Devil’s Night series in order of publication (as we suggested) or if you are going to read them your own way. Additionally, tell us which one is your favorite character!

Once you have finished checking out the order of the Miss Julia books you can also take a look at the Lady Hardcastle series, a story about a widowed old woman who moves to the country so she can find a more relaxing environment and ends up solving mysteries.

Our second recommendation, the An Aurora Teagarden Mystery series, is written by bestselling author Charlaine Harris. Does that name ring a bell to you? it might be because one of her series serves as inspiration for the True Blood tv series, here’s a list of the Sookie Stackhouse novels in order in case you want to read them.

What is this series about?

Miss Julia series in order
Miss Julia series order

The Miss Julia series tells us about a widowed woman of the same name, her life will change drastically the day that Hazel Marie Pucked shows up at her door with a 9-year-old kid, a child that comes with a harsh revelation: the boy is the bastard son of her, Miss Julia’s, late husband.

As happens with lots of these mystery series, each of the novels is self-conclusive. Therefore, it is not mandatory to read the Miss Julia series in order. However, we do recommend that you start with Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, because in this you’ll get an introduction to the characters and the setting. If you decide to read them at your own will then we advise you not to read the back covers of these books, because they may spoil the ending of the previous one in the series. Be careful so as to not ruin the fun!

In case you were wondering, Miss Julia is not based on any person Ann B. Ross knows, but the character is rather a combination of mannerisms of people she has known throughout her life.

This story takes place in the south of the United States, during the 1950s. One of the most appealing aspects of this series is the quirky humor of the main character, the rest of the cast is well built as are the dialogues, which are rich and entertaining.
