In light of the fact that the clocks go back in the early hours of tomorrow, I thought I would do something a little bit different. Time is literally going back an hour – so what better way to celebrate this fact than having a look at Young Adult books that feature time travel?
I haven’t read all of these series but they definitely intrigue me…
Series featuring time travel elements:
This series is considered one of the definitive works of Young Adult fiction so it is only fitting that it is featured here. I haven’t read it personally but it is definitely something I want to experience for myself (it’s just a pity I didn’t discover this when I was a kid – I would have been over-awed I think).
I remember reading this series when I was younger. I cannot remember a great deal of what happens in it save for the fact the protagonist goes back to the 19th Century and falls in love with a boy from that time, but I do remember really liking it.
This series has been on my TBR list for ages – it looks wonderful and time travel is a key plot point. It is about a girl born into a family of time travellers who goes back into the past. It looks really intriguing and I really must get to reading it very, very soon!
I bought the first book in this series a few years ago and still haven’t got round to reading it yet. I am not sure why – it looks like it has a killer plot that definitely puts a new spin on the concept of time travel.
This is a series I am incredibly excited to read. The time travel element is very different in this – it’s about a character who can see her potential futures depending on what path she chooses – sounds awesome!
Other series/books that contain time travel elements:
Well, that is an impressive list of books about time travel – but I would need a Time-Turner to be able to read all of them methinks!
