So, my roommate gave me WIcked to read and I have Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister on the way.  Anyway, I have a question. Is there a certain order I should read these in?

The only books of his in series are Wicked, Son of a Witch and a Lion among Men.  (in that order)

Mirror Mirror, Confessions, and Lost are all stand alones and I'm not sure if his children's stories have an order or not. Lost is the only adult book of his that's not written in the format of a known fairy tale story turned on it's ear.

I read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. I don't think it's related to Wicked.  I think the Wicked series goes: Wicked, Son of A Witch, and then the one with the Lion on the cover. I could be wrong though.

Confessions and Wicked aren't related.  Confessions is an excellent historical fiction book, by the way.  I really enjoyed it.

I tried reading Wicked and I just could not get into it. I gave up after about 75 pages.

Wicked the book does not depict the actual show at all.  I also could not read the book.

I agree, I liked Confessions a lot, and while I did finish Wicked, I thought it was only okay and haven't been compelled to read further so far.

I also struggled with "Wicked".  While I finished it, it was due more to my stubborn nature than enjoymnet of the book.
