Time Traveling

Since we jumped ahead in time this morning I thought I’d talk about some of my favorite time travel novels. 

Cover ImageMy favorite time travel series is by far the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.  A WWII nurse walks through magical stones and finds herself in Scotland 200 years earlier.  This book has it all – love, war, death, hatred, jelousy, political intrigue…and yes, time travel.

Cover ImageI just read this book in January and loved it.  The narrator jumped ahead and saw what the world would become.  My review is here.

Cover ImageThis book, and series, is a childhood favorite.  The world of Meg, Charles, Calvin, and Mrs. Whatsit had me reading this book more than once as a kid.

Cover ImageI loved this outrageous book.  Arthur  and Ford’s galaxy tour was a laugh out loud riot.  I read the first few books of the series, but never finished it.  Maybe I should.

What are your favorite time travel novels?

    My son loves the last 3 books you mentioned – I wonder if he’d like the Outlander books. I’ve never read them, but always assumed they were kind of “girly.”

    The Outlander series is at heart a love affair, but there is so much action that it satisfies men too. My husband liked it and I recommended it to men all the time when I was a bookseller.

    My favorite time travel novel as of late would be Laura Viera Rigler’s Confessions Of a Jane Austen Addict — the heroine wakes up in nineteenth century England! Really interesting and fun.

    Great idea with this list! I’ve never read any of these books, I’m sorry to say, but I’ve heard a lot about Diana Gabaldon. I’ll pick up her works someday… the individual size of each book intimidates me a little!

    I’ve heard good things about Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict. I’ll have to check it out after I’ve actually finished a Jane Austen novel!

    I remember reading and enjoying A Wrinkle In Time – but now I don’t remember a thing about it! I need to re-read some of these titles from my youth.

    I thought the same thing when I added it to my list 🙂

    It certainly doesn’t top the Wrinkle in Time series, but I read Timescape while in Germany and really liked it, even though I got headaches dealing with the paradoxes.

    On a recent trip to Germany or in high school? I looked it up and it sounds really interesting. When I get some of challenges closer to being finished I ‘ll have to look for it.
