Thematic Sunday: Books about Time Travel

So Daylight Savings Time is once again upon us. I'd thought in honor of that, I'd do books about time travel. As always, I'll be doing a variety books from classic, to YA to adult fiction books to classics on the subject. I'm also going to go ahead and include parallel universe type books as well as groundhog day scenario type books.

1) The Time Machine by H. G. Wells

Why: If you're doing time travel, this is the book probably everyone thinks of first.

2) Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

Why: if more romantic time travel is your thing, this series definitely fits the bill. Another good romantic one would be The Time Traveler's Wife.

3) All Our Yesterdays series by Cristin Terrill

Why: A great start to a new series about teenagers time-jumping in order to stop the creation of a time machine.

4) A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain

Why: This classic about a guy time traveling to King Arthur's time and changing things is also a time travel classic. In fact, it's had at least three movies based on it (that I know of).

5) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Why: A girl who dies is forced to relive the night she died over and over again until she gets the full story on what happened.

6) Timeline by Michael Chrichton

Why: A group of archaeologists learn that the government has created a time machine and needs them to study it.

7) 11/22/63 by Stephen King

Why: About going back in time and stopping the assassination of JFK and the consequences to the world that it brings.

8) A Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones

Why: About a city that oversees all of history that is in danger.

9) Unraveling series by Elizabeth Norris

Why: Excellent series about parallel universes colliding.

10) Tempest Trilogy by Julie Cross

Why: A little bit like Jumper, this one has a guy who jumps through time who is on the run from a shady organization.
