I am very late for this tag hosted by the brilliant Sophie @ Blame Chocolate but here is my great selection of books including Time Travel! I realized I do not read a lot of books about time-travelling, but this tag made me discover so cool books! Hope you enjoy!
Books I’ve Read
The Edelstein Trilogy/Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
Summary: Sixteen-year-old Gwen lives with her extended – and rather eccentric – family in an exclusive London neighbourhood. In spite of her ancestors’ peculiar history, she’s had a relatively normal life so far. The time-travelling gene that runs like a secret thread through the female half of the family is supposed to have skipped over Gwen, so she hasn’t been introduced to “the mysteries,” and can spend her time hanging out with her best friend, Lesley. It comes as an unwelcome surprise when she starts taking sudden, uncontrolled leaps into the past.
She’s totally unprepared for time travel, not to mention all that comes with it: fancy clothes, archaic manners, a mysterious secret society, and Gideon, her time-travelling counterpart. He’s obnoxious, a know-it-all, and possibly the best-looking guy she’s seen in any century… (Goodreads)
I LOVED THIS TRILOGY SO DAMN MUCH. It’s incredibly well-written, the characters are spectacular and the plot is amazing! The books are initially written in German, which makes them even cooler. Go check it if you haven’t yet! They have been adapted to the scream and the cast is incredible! My favourite movie of the three is Sapphire Blue, but my favourite book is Emerald Green.
Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
Since Hermione has the Time-Turner in this book, which allows her to travel back in time, I figured it counted as time-travelling. Also, this is my favourite book out of the Harry Potter series, so there’s that.
Books I want to Read
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Summary: The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord…1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. (Goodreads)
I heard the TVshow was very good and the book even better! What more do I need? Oh, right: TIME.
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Summary: Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her. When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts…(Goodreads)
Bonus TV show
Doctor Who (2005-present)
Okay so I don’t read a lot of books involving time-travelling but I sure as hell watch Doctor Who! What better show for this tag than a thousand-year-old alien called The Doctor, who travels aboard the “it’s bigger on the inside” Tardis
which he stole, with his companions, throught time and space?! You’re right: nothing. Also for some weird reason, Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is my favourite, though David Tennant’s is very emotional and Matt Smith’s is the best and I loooove Jodie Whittaker’s performance.
