(For the first time, I read the Tolkien books in this order, but that’s just me):
- The Hobbit
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Silmarillion
- The Children of Hurin
- Unfinished Tales
- The Tolkien Reader (Features On Fairy Stories, Leaf by Niggle, etc, mix of Middle Earth, ME and non ME tales)
- Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (A series of poems, not a ME tale)
- The Letters of JRR Tolkien (where you’d find a lot of his inspirations of the works)
- Tales from the Perilous Realm (Children’s tales) – Roverandom, Farmer Giles of Ham, Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Smith of Wootton Major, Leaf by Niggle
- Beren and Luthien
- The Fall of Gondolin (released then)
- Currently the Histories of Middle Earth (- 2/12 volumes!) – currently on #3 (The Lays of Beleriand)
- The Nature of Middle Earth – the time and space of Middle Earth, foundational matters like lifestyles and free will, and the systems
- A Secret Vice – on Tolkien’s invented languages and resources, and how they are related to his mythology
- Letters from Father Christmas – the Christmas letters that Tolkien wrote to his children.
And here are the guides read by me:
- Literary Converts by Joseph Pierce (not meant to be entirely about Tolkien, but contains snippets)
- Walking with Bilbo and Walking with Frodo by Sarah Arthur
- The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings by Philip and Carol Zaleski
- The Worlds of JRR Tolkien by John Garth
