Top 5 Books the Feature Time Travel

As Always Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. All past topics and the rest of March topics can be found on the Goodreads group page.
I hadn't really put all that much thought into it until I discovered that this was this weeks Top 5 Wednesday, but I really haven't read all that many books that contain time travel. So, it is now my goal to read at least three books this year that contain time travel. Hopefully, I will succeed in this task and not forget about it in a few weeks. *crosses fingers* Anyways, lets start with the few that I have read.

  1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3) by J.K. Rowling 
    Yay! Since I read this book this year I have already read one of my three time travel books. One down, two to go. On a different note, this was one of my favorite Harry Potter movies and as far as I have gotten in the book series. Another goal, read the rest of the Harry Potter series ASAP. 
  2. Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #2) by Ransom Riggs
    This book was definitely more action packed and intriguing than book one. I was definitely not expecting it to end the way it did and I hope I can get my hands on the third book in the trilogy because I have to know how it ends.  
  3. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #1) by Ransom Riggs 
    My least favorite book out of these three, but good beginning to a trilogy and I love how Riggs incorporated time travel into the series. The time travel in this series is so unique in how its basically used as a shield, like that's kind of awesome.
Up next, some of the top books on my TBR that contain time travel (I think)! 
  1. Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
    It's terrible that I haven't read this book yet. I am dying to read the whole series but I really want to finish the A Song of Ice and Fire series first. Sadly at Martin's pace, I could probably read the 8 book in this series before the 6th ASOIF book comes out. Hmm. Maybe I can pull that off.  
  2. A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1) by V.E. Schwab 
    I am actually currently reading my first V.E. Schwab book right now (Vicious), and I already love the writing style! It's making me even more excited to pick this book up. I have a feeling that Schwab is going to become one of my favorite authors. 
  3. Into the Dim (Into the Dim #1) by Janet B. Taylor 
    This book actually just came out at the beginning of the month and was even on my most anticipated read of 2016. Hopefully I get my hands on it soon. Bonus, the cover is so freaking beautiful. I mean, the typography is so on point. 
  4. A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness
    Fun fact, I own the third book in this trilogy but not the first two, nor have a read the first two...weird...I should probably get on that. 
  5. Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink
    I honestly had never even heard about this book until my sister pointed it out for me at Target. She raved about it the entire time we were there and for days after, but she hasn't even read it yet. That and the fact that it was actually nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award put it on my radar. Hopefully it's more than a unique cover. 
Outlander (Outlander, #1)


  1. Yes read Outlander!! I bought my bf Welcome to Night Vale as it was based on one of the podcasts he listens to. He seemed to enjoy it. I really want to read a Darker Shade of Magic!

  2. Into the Dim is on my TBR list too! And I so nearly put Harry Potter on to my list this week! It's probably my favourite HP book!
