Bon Voyage: Time Travel Book Recs

I'm so excited to be dedicating an entire week on the blog to celebrate the fabulous novel Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. It's a time travel novel like nothing I've ever read before, written with Alex's fabulous storytelling skills, and I'm head over heels in love with it! Rachel of Hello Chelly and I are going to be sharing posts inspired by the novel all week. Today, we're sharing recommendations - I'm doing books and Rachel's doing movies - so be sure to check out our posts! (Don't forget to enter the giveaway!)

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill | It's very scientific in the way it explains time travel, but good golly, this novel is such a fast-paced, exciting read. I was blown away by Terrill's management of the characters, their relationships and the plot, and I always recommend this one to readers in search of more time travel tales. (P.S. You can also check out the five reasons you should read this novel that I shared on Andi's ABCs!)

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone | In complete contrast to the previous book, this book (first of a duology, and second novel is excellent as well) keeps time travel simple. It simply is, and this story is heavily focused on the characters and their relationship. (One is a time traveler, and one is not.) If you're in search of a lighter time travel read, this duology is great!

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly | I love the way this book is written! This one also handles time travel in as simple a manner as possible. The primary focus of this story is what happens to the main character when she's thrown back in time, and I loved that. Time travel was barely involved (except to change up the character's situation), but it's definitely still a part of this story.

Loop by Karen Akins | This one is like a combination of All Our Yesterday and Time Between Us, but manages to stand all on its own. I was drawn in immediately after I started, and I couldn't set it down because I was dying to see how it would end. It's funny, and it's got a very sweet romance, and I really enjoyed it. (I've got to read the second!)

Tempest by Julie Cross | This is probably the first time travel YA that I read after I started blogging, and I really liked it! It's another one where the process of time travel is scientifically described, but it wasn't done in a way that felt overwhelming. Instead, it was pretty easy to follow. What makes this one so good is how exciting and fast-paced it is, with stakes that are high enough to get your heart pounding. (I've got to finish the series!)

I need to read more time travel books! I really have loved all the ones mentioned in this post, and I sincerely hope you give them a shot if they're new-to-you or that you've loved them to. Which is your favorite of the ones I've mentioned? Which ones would you want to read? Feel free to give me your best time travel book recs!
