Order of Anna Todd Standalone Novels
Anna appreciates her small-town upbringing because it sparked her love for books. She has fond memories of ‘The Babysitter’s Club,’ ‘Goosebumps,’ and the classic literature volumes she consumed during her teenage years.
Her husband entered the picture when Anna was still in high school. While some people raised concerns when the couple decided to wed a month after the author’s high school graduation, things worked out for the pair.
Life as an American soldier’s wife was far from easy, but the couple was resilient, and their marriage survived three deployments to Iraq and several migrations. In the end, the love Anna felt for her husband grew stronger, and she found that she couldn’t imagine a life without him.
Although, he was not the only important aspect of her life. When Anna discovered Wattpad, it changed everything. The platform introduced the author to people like her, budding storytellers with a desire to share their fictional tales with the world.
It was the community she had always longed for, and it gave Anna an active audience of readers that consumed every word she wrote. The author kickstarted her Wattpad journey in 2013, publishing a chapter a day for several months.
What began as a hobby took on a life of its own. The ‘After’ series became a hit, accruing hundreds of millions of reads on the platform and turning Anna into a Wattpad sensation. Wattpad saw the value in her talents, and the pair formed a partnership, collaborating to secure a traditional publisher for Anna’s work.
They wanted to turn Anna’s stories into physical novels, and they succeeded. Gallery Books released the first ‘After’ novel in 2014. The series has received dozens of translations since those early days, spreading Anna’s stories to audiences worldwide.
The author gets a kick out of seeing so many different covers of her books. She is grateful to the fans that continue to support her because they changed the author’s life by turning her dream into a reality.
Her publishing journey is far from over. She joined forces with Wattpad Books to start her own imprint in 2021. The imprint (Frayed Pages) will publish the works of other writers, not just hers.

Best Anna Todd Books
Critics have compared the author’s work to the Fifty Shades trilogy because her ‘After’ series began as fan fiction. Anna’s best books include:
After: Tessa knew better than to tangle with Hardin. She was a good girl with a reliable boyfriend at home, and her mother wanted Tessa to stay that way. But she was no longer home. Tessa was a freshman living in a dorm, and she couldn’t get Hardin out of her thoughts.
Hardin was everything she should have hated. Yes, he was cute, and Tessa couldn’t get enough of his cocky British accent. But he was also rude and cruel. She should have kept her distance.
But Hardin was pushing all her buttons, and his prejudice about nice girls wasn’t enough to keep Tessa away. Was this love? Could she afford to abandon her perfect boyfriend back home to pursue a fling with Hardin?
After We Collided: Hardin and Tessa’s relationship was in a difficult spot. But the pair was determined to make it work. However, Tessa was starting to question whether Hardin was worth the effort. The man she fell for was deep and thoughtful.
And she caught glimpses of him on occasion. But what about the cruel exterior Hardin was all too quick to display? What about the many promises he had broken? What about the friends and family Tessa had put on hold to maintain her relationship with Hardin?
She had sacrificed everything for him. Was she willing to add a promising new career to that list? What if she was wrong? What if Hardin refused to change? Could she live with her choices?
