I wanna start reading all the novels but would like to do so going by the actual history/years events are taking place.
You won't miss anything by reading stuff out of chronological order
The Warhammer timeline spans about 6,000 years and there are hundreds of novels/novellas written by a dozen or more authors. The storylines weave in and out of each other as well. Most actually have no reference to a date so they just take place at some arbitrary point in time, usually around the time Karl Franz is Emperor.
Absolutely nothing was published in chronological order, so reading books by release date won't really help.
Your best bet is to look over the timeline of world events and search for books which correspond to them. The main events aren't all covered in the books, they would be focused on in the actual Warhammer army books.
- You'd want to start with the Elves: Teclis, Tyrion and Malekith.
- Then Nagash
- Followed by Sigmar
- And Neferata.
These storylines will take you from the ancient past up to roughly around the present day and you'll have a decent understanding of the big players.
Then there are buckets of stories which take place around the same time, few have dates and many overlap.
Then you can start The End Times where:
the whole world explodes and the bad guys win.
Then you're into the Age of Sigmar and everything is a stupid confusing mess and I recommend you avoid it.
Everyone you've read about in the fantasy books is dead (or might not be, no one knows and BL won't say).
From this forum, a recommended list would be (note that this likely to be opinion-based):
Sigmar Nagash Malekith Gotrek & Felix Thanquol Luthor Huss Sword of Vengeance/Sword of Justice Omnibus Witch Hunter Omnibus
