James PattersonBook Series in Order has the most New York Times bestsellers. He has sold more than 300 million books! He was also the first author to sell 1 million e-books. With a plethora of books, somewhere in the ballpark of 350, I know that it’s tough to keep up with all of them. Below is a list of James Patterson’s book series in order. You can find the stand-alone book list here.

I’m a huge fan of this prolific writer. I admire his writing style and devour his books. I try my best (and I do make mistakes) to keep up and share his works with fellow fans and future fans. With that said, I hope you find this list useful. Maybe you will find something that you may have missed or just can’t wait to read.

His many genres include fiction and non-fiction thrillers, mysteries, true crime, and sci-fi as well as, romance, comedy, young adult, and children’s books. There is something for everyone at every age, therefore, James Patterson’s books make a great addition to any library.

    I don’t read too much, but when I do, I love reading series books. This is very helpful when it comes to series books by James Patterson. I’ve heard of him as an author, but didn’t realize he had so many books. I also will look into the stand alone books and see if those also interest me. Thanks for this useful information.

  • Tracy

    • Tracy

  • Anna L. Henry

    Hi Tracy, thank you for this article and I really enjoyed reading it. I have heard of the Middle School series but to be honest I haven’t much time to read it. However, I am putting this on my wish list for my next holiday. ?

    Hopefully I will see more post like this. Thank you Tracy

    • Tracy

      Hi Anna! Thank you for reading the Book Seris in Order article. I’m glad that you enjoyed it and I hope it comes in handy for many. The Middle School series is a fun read. I hope you enjoy it. After you finish, maybe try out Dog Diaries, it’s a spinoff from the Middle School series. If you have any young ones in your life, it is a good choice for reading with them. With Rafe’s dog (Junior) as the narrator, you will get many laughs. Happy Holidays!

  • Margaret

    Hi Tracy, I enjoyed reading your article on Book Series in Order. There’s a lot of helpful and interesting information about James Patterson.

    James Patterson has a huge selection of books to choose from. There’s something for everyone to read. My favorite books that I enjoy reading are romance, comedy, and thriller.

    Thank you for sharing,


    • Tracy

      Hey Margaret, thanks for visiting! I’m happy to hear that you like the Book Series in Order article. I hope people find it useful. James Patterson does have a huge selection, it just amazes me. Have you read any of his Romance? I reccomend Sam’s Letters to Jennifer, Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas and Sundays at Tiffany’s. I was actually suprised that James Patterson wrote Romance novels, however I believe that he could write anything and make it a bestseller. If you’re ready to start a new series, I highly suggest the Alex Cross series. These books are so hard to put down. I would love for you to come back after reading your next James Patterson book, let me know your thoughts. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Happy Reading!

  • Michel

    James Patterson is a great author and I first read some of his books when a friend lent me the Womens Murder Club Series which i thoroughly enjoyed. 

    Since then I have read a few others but would like to try the Alex Cross Series when I get my next holiday. I didn’t realize he had so many titles under his name, but I believe his first book was published in 1976 so he has had time to build up his lustrious career. 

    • Tracy

      Hey Michel, Thanks for the comment. James Patterson truly is a great author and yes his first book was published in 1976. The Women’s Murder Club is one of my favorite series, I’m glad you enjoyed it. Did you read the 19th Christmas? The 20th Victim will be out in March!! The Alex Cross series is the best in my eyes, I can’t wait for you to read the series. You can get the books easily through my links, come on back when ever you are ready. Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
