Time Traveling Books

On this page of my website, I will try to provide you with information about the various time traveling books available. Many writers have based their work on this concept and I think each one of these books is worth reading.

Journeys into the past and future have been made for various reasons. Sometimes the characters in these stories travel for a positive reason, for example wanting to save humanity or loved ones, or just to make some other changes in a good way.

Examples.

“The End of Eternity “by Isaac Asimov or “Woman of the Edge of Time “by Marge Pierce are good examples of this concept. A wonderful journey in the past, Middle Ages , for scientific reason, but also for saving a loved one( father, teacher, mentor) you can find in the amazing story‘Timeline’ by Michael Crichton.

Also, in Stephen King’s great time travel novel “11/22/63” the main character wants to prevent the death of the President of the USA at that time, Kennedy. What would today be like if this incident had never happened?

Time Travel

In other novels, time travel has been portrayed for negative reasons. Hurting, killing, revenge, or even monetary gains have been key story lines. A lot of these stories can highlight the dangers of making changes to the past and how they can affect future events. A perfect example of this is in “The Shining Girls” by Lauren Beukes, a serial killer.

Time travel books are not only about journeys into the past or future but also to parallel universes as in the novel “Transition” by Iain M. Baukes.

Time traveling is not only found in Science Fiction books but you can find this concept even in romance books. Examples are “Outlander” and “Dragonfly in Amber” by Diana Gabaldon and “Unhappenings” by Edward Aubrey.

In most of these fictional categories of time travel books, the reason for these journeys is to find true love. There is a large list of books in which the characters time travel to find their love in the past, future or parallel worlds. “Believe” and “Promises to Keep” by Victoria Alexander or “Legacy” and “Nell” by Jeanette Baker, ”Stargazer ”by Patti Berg and many others can be found in this genre.

“Time Machines” by Paul J. Nahin show us how time travel is understood in physics, metaphysics, and science fiction too, so it is not only about storytelling.

Scientific books have also been published with regards to time travel and paradox. If some of you are interested in real facts I will try to bring them here for you as the website develops.

Books and TV

Some of these books have inspired filmmakers to create some great movies too. Good examples are “The Time Machine” by H.G.Wells The Time Machinewhere the character George travels back in time and finds love. Also “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur s court” is another great example.

As you are probably aware a lot of writers have had their works put onto the screen with some amazing results. I will dedicate a section of this website to some of these works too.

When we look at the above lists and great ideas, is it any wonder why we are excited that humans may one day find a way to travel in time in the years to come?

Many resources have proved that it is not impossible sometime in the next decades or centuries, for progress to be made in order to make time travel possible. Also, who knows, maybe these kinds of journeys have already been made in the past, a long time before we even thought about the concept.

I am sure that the reason people love these Science Fiction stories, be it from books or film is different for each individual and I will provide for you on this site as much different choices and information as I can.

Summary

At some point in our lives, I think all of us want to make this journey, to answer the ultimate question – what if it was all possible?

Reading these books I have mentioned will open your mind and I hope will give you the inspiration to learn more. One thinks we know for sure – at the moment we cannot change history but IF we could, a chain of effects would surely follow. Sometimes these changes could create a Parallel Universe.

More information will be added to this website and all the books mentioned and many more will be covered in the days, months and years to come.

If you have read something that you found interesting or if there are some other books that you would like to read or share with us please let me know.

Your comment is always welcome.

Thank you.

    Hi Christina!

    Time travel is a fascinating subject indeed! I truly believe we will be able to do it one day. I would love to visit parallel worlds, but not really go back or forward in time though.

    I have not read any books on this. But some movies I like is ‘Back to the future’. It’s a classic! And let’s not forget about ‘Terminator’ ;-).

    This is very interesting site and I am interested to see what is in store for the future.

    Cheers Erica x

    What An Interesting Site!

    I have to agree that the possibilities of time travel is no joke! There are most certainly things yet to be discovered just have things have been from the time of existence! We as mere mortals do not know all that is yet to come, some do and it those few that make these discoveries and present them to the world!

    I Love your Header and would love to see more visuals and color, showing the beauty of outa space to get the imagination going, could address that, there are some awesome images out there!X:-).

    I wish you well on your journey with this fascinating subject!

    I have always been fascinated with time travel. I think we all have had times in our lives that we’d like to go back to. Whether to change something or just to relive a magical time in our lives.
    I have to check out some of these books you’ve mentioned here. Especially “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”. That sounds like something I’d really enjoy.
    You have a great site here. A good friend of mine would love this. I have to share it with her.

    I’m interested in books and audiobooks when they somehow can improve my life. In other words I love to read the books that I can right away apply to my own life. Is it possible with these time travel books?

    I don’t like studying history in general very much if there is nothing clear connection to today. Of course from the history I can learn from other people’s mistakes or success. What kind of inspiration and ideas time travel books can provide more specifically?

    Hey there,

    Fascinating topic! Some of the greatest stories or movies include time travel.

    One of my favourite Michael Crichton books, Timeline, even describes the fictitious technology behind it very well, and also has a very unique take on time paradox. But then, he’s not my favourite techno thriller writer for nothing.

    Enjoyed reading your post!

    This is an Amazing site Christina!
    I personally love movies and tv series that involve time travel. Because I am a trekkie fan I loved the StarTrek movie called “First Contact” and also the TV series “Once Upon A Time” I just loved the way they utilized all the Disney characters in this series.
    I know we can’t go back in time and change history but we always can learn from the mistakes and accomplishments made in the past to improve our future.

    i am glad you mentioned 11/22/63. I think that’s one of S. King’s best books, but sadly it is also one of his most ignored books. May I suggest also exploring the works of Harry Turtledove? I think you will find his various series fairly interesting,

    Hi there. This is another great article on time travel. There are some good reading suggestions here, thank you. My all time favorite is H.G. Wells The Time Machine. I really enjoyed the film version with Guy Pearce too. It’s a great story!

    Personally I don’t think there are enough time travel books and movies. There are a few classics but I think there is certainly room for more!

    Thanks again,

    Andrew

    Hey, just came across your website, it’s a very fascinating topic, and funny thing is Iv’e been watching a TV Show ” the Outlander ” it’s about someone who goes back in time from WW2 to Medieval time.

    Guess people will always wonder if it will be possible one day to go back or forward on time !

    Loved you site, keep it up!

    Hi Cristina,

    This is a great post and I am fascinated with stories that involve time travel. I really want to read some of the books you mention when I get a chance. I’m particularly interested in the Stephen King novel as I have not heard about that one before.

    You mentioned that you will be reviewing some films on time travel as well – I’m really looking forward to that as I love watching those kinds of movies!

    Great site – I wish you all the best with it!!

    Hey there Christina. This is a gem of website. I’ve always loved time travel. It’s just so appealing. You could go back and visit yourself, or see what really happened in the past. For that last reason I’m thankful time travel isn’t available.

    I’ve read most of these books, but they’re still great time travel resources. Although I love books like ‘The Time Machine,’ my favorite time travel media are cartoons, and TV shows and video games. The outlandishness of them provide extremely entertaining stories. But I also recommend ‘Guns of the South’ by Harry Turtledove. Or anything else by him.
