For some of the readers, this series meant their entire childhood. They spent their lives reading about this young boy, and finally, they will get to watch their imagination come to life.

But for some of us who never got the chance to read this series in our childhood, this new adaptation means another book series goes on our TBR, which we must read before the TV Series hits the screens. We are eager to read the books before the clock runs out on us. So, if you are like us, then this is your time to read the books before the show releases.

Two spin-off series have also been added to this world of demigods, monsters, and heroes.

Whichever books you decide to read, you can follow this reading order for this amazing fantasy series.
