Halo canon

So im looking to get into the books a bit and would love some sort of order or a list that i can go by and get as much lore as possible. Anybody got this for me? please and thank.

My favorite line of books to read is:
Fall of Reach
The Flood
First Strike
Ghosts of Onyx
Thursday War
Mortal Dictata
This list is in order timeline wise, and they all relate to the one before at least to some extent.
Also Contact Harvest has good backstory and lore into the UNSC, as well as the Covenant.
I hope this helps! =)
