Horus Heresy Proposed Reading Order

I have finished most of the Horus heresy series, and thinking back, I wish I knew then what I know now in what order to read it. I personally read it in release order and I find it pretty sloppy and all over the place. While it is generally in chronological order, I didn't like how character arcs are interrupted with other stories and how long it takes for the story to return to said characters, because my memory is so bad. So with my proposed reading order, I decided to focus on characters and events. Also I tried to make the order make sense chronologically, for example the perpetuals' arch. In the end, this proposed reading order is by no means perfect and still probably is an unfinished mess and has much to improve and add, so don't be afraid to make suggestions. Enjoy!
