Top 5 Wednesday - Books That Feature Time Travel

This is such a fantastic topic to discuss about this Wednesday because I love time traveling. Whenever I watch a time traveling related movie, I always have a great discussion with my best friend, as he too was really into this. We would often pause the movie in between to talk about the time jump, the kind of butterfly effects it would cause. I really miss those days and unfortunately I would not have that chance to discuss with him ever again. So we both always agree that writing about time travelling is tricky because the author has to be able to cover all the loopholes and have butterfly effects that made sense. Because of the concept being so complicated, there is only a handful of movies and books on the topic. Hence I've only read one trilogy and a standalone novel that involved time traveling. I did my research so I've included 3 books that are in that topic and it's listed below:

Ruby Red Series

This is one of my favorite series of all time. The author incorporated the concept of time traveling so well that I couldn't find any flaws. I read this in English and apparently it's a translated version. I think the translator did a fantastic job because I didn't felt that the sentences were weird or the grammar was wrong anywhere. If you want to know more about the series I've written reviews for all 3 books. A brief summary of the series is there is this girl who had been born into a family that can time travel and a society actually governs the travelers. Apart from her, there is another family who shares this bloodline, together they both need to go on missions to complete an object.

Sapphire Blue
Emerald Green

A Tale of Time City

This book is written by one of my favorite authors Diana Wynne Jones. It's a story about a girl who was mistaken as someone else as she got kidnapped by two boys. Together 3 of them go on a quest to save the city that the boys are from. This book is considered in the middle grade genre but because she's my favorite author I decided to read the book. It was quite an adventure for the threesome and I quite enjoyed it. The time travel factors were written quite well without any flaws that I could spot. I've also written the review here.


So this is a recent release that I've not purchase. I've done my research looking at Goodreads and BookTube where there were many good reviews for it. I'm quite excited to get this book soon because I'm impressed with Alexandra Bracken's writing. Although I've only read The Darkest Minds it was a very good book. As I know this book has time traveling in it and it involves a girl who time traveled to a time far away from home. I'm really looking forward to reading this.

The Girl from Everywhere

Another new release this year, this book is about a girl who is aboard her father's ship her entire life where they travel across the world and different time lines. After reading the summary and knowing that it has time travel in it, I'm sold.

The Love that Split the World

This book was released last month in February which unfortunately for me I've not gotten it yet. I've heard so many good things about it and it has been featured in so many bookstagrammer's pictures. The story is about a girl who is trying to save a boy and in order to do that time travelling is invloved. By reading the title it has already gotten me intrigued and I'm pretty sure that I will love this book.

So there you have it my top 5 even though I haven't read 3 of it but I'm quite confident about those books. It has gotten such great reviews and I trust those reviewers. In the next few months I hope I would be able to to get my hands on the books, read them and then review them. Is time travelling a topic you love to read about? What books do you recommend me besides the ones mentioned above?
