Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Feature Time Travel

My Name is Memory

My Name Is Memory  by Ann Brashares

The story isn’t exactly about time traveling but it features the main characters at different points in time and history and how they connect each time. This is one of my favorite books of all time. The writing is wonderful, i still remember how much i enjoyed reading this beautiful love story. The end is a bit weird, and many people didn’t like it much, but let me tell you this; the book is so wonderful, i couldn’t care less about how the last two pages ended.


 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

This is the only Harry Potter book featuring time traveling, and sorry if this spoils someone the book, but well, i haven’t read many books featuring time traveling, so it was needed. I will never understand why only this book used the time traveling idea, so many things could have happen in a different way, at least some people could have been saved from unnecessary death…. em19, and to think you save them once but not twice.

sssssssssssssssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, please no spoilers.


 

The Girl From Everywhere

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

I read this book last month, and i have to say the way they travel in time is one of the most creative ways i’ve seen, i mean …. without spoiling, they travel by map, like, to travel to a specific time they need a map of that date, otherwise it doesn’t work.. I found that so nicely done and so clever, i don’t know, i really like the idea, also, apparently a map will work only once so you can’t just travel as much as you want, if i recall it right… Traveling through time got complicated.


All You Need Is Kill

All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka

This book is amazing, to be honest it isn’t much time traveling as a time loop, that the main character keeps reliving and reliving. The book is a lot of  fun, to say that my favorite part is once when he comes back to the day the time loop starts he just takes a gun and blows his brains off, just to come back to the exact same moment and place where the time loo starts, everytime he dies, he comes back…The movie they made was horrible, i couldn’t finish it even, but  manga/light novel is great, and i mean it, it’s short, to the point and one of my favorites, i recommend it a lot!


The Time Traveler's Wife

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Another of my favorite books of all time, this is adult fiction, not YA, which is saying something if i liked it. I remember so many details of this book even though i read it a long while ago, it’s an amazing book, at the time i fell in ove with the two main characters and their relationship. He met her in her twenties for the first time, but she met meeet him when she was little, and they are so adorable and their story is wnderful and no thinking of it i just wanna drop dead. There’s also a movie, i haven’t saw, because i’m too scared, but it’s with Eric Bana (tumblr_inline_n61q9gT5Qa1qhdusl) and Rachel McAdams (tumblr_inline_msh194QAX31qz4rgp) , so i don’t know.. maybe one day I’ll watch it, but first, i think i should reread this wonder.


 Bonus!

This is where i recommend you some movies/shows/anime featuring time travel because i haven’t read many books, but i sure watched a lot of  tv featuring it!

  1. Whoa, it’s a great bonus that you added some shows featuring time travel. I’ve heard about the Girl Who Leapt Through Time and I’m definitely curious about it (reviews say it was indeed a good one).
