Reading Order

orderFrequently, folks ask me what the reading order of my books should be, especially if I hook them and they want to dive into my entire library.

Just a note that on this website, on each series page within the Titles section, the books are listed in the order they were released and should be read. So if you’re one of those people who wants to start at the beginning of a series, you can find on this website where the beginning is.

However, as I was writing (and releasing) these books, I was interweaving among series. Doing this meant folks who found me after these books had been released might wonder if there’s a character whose book they’ve missed or may even lose the impact of some fun reveals and guest appearances!

If you discover me and wish to experience it as it happened, this page gives you a guideline.

Now, if you want to free form your devouring of my novels, go forth and READ!

But if you’re starting from the beginning and want the full Kristen Ashley experience, I suggest the following reading order:

1) The Rock Chick series (Now, this series is a definite first…BUT, I would strongly suggest reading the Colorado Mountain series somewhere in this mix. You’ll need to have read Breathe before you read the finale to the Rock Chick seriesRock Chick Revolution, to get the full impact of something. I shall say no more!)

2) The Dream Man series

3) The Chaos series/the Unfinished Hero series (It’s recommended you at least read Knight of the Unfinished Heroes before you read Ride Steady of Chaos)

4) The ‘Burg series

If you’re really particular about getting the full experience, I suggest you make time to read For You of The ‘Burg series before you read Jagged of the Colorado Mountain series. I know this sounds confusing, but it wasn’t when I was writing and releasing them!

The rest of my books can be read in whatever order you like, however, Heaven and Hell would be more fun to read after the Rock Chicks, the Colorado Mountain and the ‘Burg are consumed.

If you’re new to my work, it should be noted that if you read one, you don’t get the same “feel” for all. For instance, the Rock Chick series is fast-paced and full of humor. There is emotionality to it but the Colorado Mountain series and the ‘Burg series are more descriptive, longer and more raw. The Dream Man series is a spin-off of Rock Chick and follows that same vein but it’s a little deeper. The Unfinished Hero series is like Dream Man but it is much more erotic and it’s important to note this series is about anti-heroes and anti-heroines, it’s an exploration of those concepts, so if that isn’t your gig, beware!

Then of course there are my paranormals with The Three having some fun with vampires and werewolves. And then I took off into fantasy with my Fantasyland series. And spent some time with Ghosts, reincarnation, SuperWitches and genies! However, none of these have crossovers of characters in them (except within the series) so if you’re into that kind of thing, you can just go for it as you like. Though I would suggest you do it as they’re listed on each series page.

I hope that helps to increase your enjoyment of my books since, for me, that’s what it’s all about!

Happy reading and…
