I'm still having fun sharing my lists, so here's another one. I have a few more in the pipeline, and not all of them concern books so you have that to ponder while you're taking a look at my favorite time travel novels.
Once again, I suppose this list proves that I don't always need to have both feet firmly planted on the ground when I read. Once in a while, I do like to ponder "what if..." and I think that's how I use time travel novels. They give me a chance to imagine what life was like in other eras while still keeping me tethered to the life I have now.
As in my other lists, the books are in no particular order other than the one in which they popped into my mind. Let's take a look to see if any of these are familiar to you! (Click on the caption below each cover to be taken to Amazon to read more about it.)
|Originally Bid Time Return, the book is much better than the movie.|
|The best time travel novel about being black and a slave.|
|A young woman experiences life as her grandmother.|
|The book that started a fascination with Scotland.|
|The Plague? Count me in!|
|What would you do if you could live your life over again?|
|What if you had the power to change the course of history?|
|The book that started my love of time travel.|
|Three short stories by the Master of Time Travel.|
Most of the books on this list have been favorites for decades. My reading in this particular sub-genre has really slackened off in recent years, although I have read and enjoyed the first book in Jodi Taylor's The Chronicles of St. Mary's series, Just One Damned Thing After Another. Speaking of which, I need to move on to the second book now, and... I recently purchased Melodie Winawer's The Scribe of Siena, so there's another time travel novel that I need to read. When will it ever end?
So... what did you think of my list? Is time travel anything you've ever read and enjoyed? If so, is my list missing any of your favorites? Which ones? You know I'm always on the lookout for books to read! Please share!
