Time Travel Romance Books

Summer is definitely upon us and it is time to pack for our vacation.  I always carry a tote bag containing a few new romance novels to read while riding in the car or reclining on the beach.  

I didn't have to go very far for romance book recommendations before I found two book reviews that immediately grabbed my attention.

Since I don't normally read time travel books, I am really excited to venture into this new area.  After all, I am still amazed that the Hunger Games trilogy fed my romantic books appetite.  So, why not time travel too?

Now I ask you, who wouldn't want to travel back in time and experience a heart pounding romance?



The Time Traveler's Wife



TanjaCrouch wrote the movie review for The Time Traveler's Wife, but while reviewing the movie, she also reviewed and recommended the book.  

When I read her words, "You can feel the love between Clare and Henry which makes some of the scenes truly heartbreaking", I knew I had to read this book.  

Couple that with the idea of meeting your future husband when you are a child and waiting to grow up so you can meet him, well now that is just too romantic!

Fortunately, I will be traveling with my husband and he is accustomed to seeing me cry over books.



Outlander

LNAngel captured my attention and intrigued me immediately with the title of her review:  Outlander: The Only Book Series I Can Read Again & Again.  When someone tells me they can read a book over and over again, I know it has to be a fabulous book. 

I also like history and I love a book that takes place in the past, especially if it is historically correct.  

Ok, a married woman finding love and romance through time travel?  I don't know what to think at the moment, but I was so impressed with LNAngel's review that I have ordered the book for my Kindle and I will be reading it very soon.

    1. After reading the review, I am really looking forward to reading it Mary Beth! I am having to slap my own hand to not pick it up and read it before we leave :)

  2. I must read "The Time Traveler's Wife." It's not often that I see someone spell "Clare" correctly! Great list of books, Cynthia! Thank you!

    1. The reviews were definitely inviting! I am always amazed by the different ways people spell names. I am sure you have seen number of variations for Cindy. (used to drive me nuts!)

  7. Read one and listened to the audio for the other. I must admit that The Outlander is much too long to listen to in the unabridged version. Good choices for romance!

    1. I used to listen to books on tape when I drove to work every day. They are fabulous alternatives when you can't actually focus on reading, but you want the entertainment of a good book.

  8. Diana Gabaldon is one of my favorite writers. I haven't read her books in years--maybe it's time to re-read!

    1. It is so very cool to have so many trusted friends recommend an author! I have never read any of Gabaldon's books so it will be a first for me. Knowing that she is one of your favorites Charli, really encourages me.
