message 1: by Killthepopular (new)

Killthepopular I've not heard of any of these books except for The time travellers wife which is the worst book ive ever read. My votes: Replay and the end of eternity are the best time travel romances ive read.


message 2: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth I have been reading all the books and just love them all...


message 3: by Linzy (new)

Linzy Are you kidding me!!! I dont care for most of these books, but I have to say that The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon are my FAVORITE BOOKS to read! You will cry, laugh hysterically, throw something at the wall in anger, and the characters will become part of you. If you read none of these, read those. You will not be disappointed!


message 4: by Robin (new)

Robin I have NEVER read better romance books than The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon! I totally agree with Linzy (message 3) Laugh, cry, anger is so true! I laughed so hard I almost p**d my pants & cried so hard I couldn't see the pages & had to stop to get myself together! I've never read a book that made me SO angry I could have hit something and yet was so full of love it makes you believe in it all over again.
You begin to think of these characters as your family & each book as a diary of their life. Never is there enough, your always left wanting more & to me THAT'S a great book! Diana Gabaldon is the absolute best historical romance author I've ever had the privilege to read and I hope she will continue to write more about these characters!

Ohh and if my history books in high school would have been this interesting I would have payed attention, learned a LOT more & gotten A's! LOL


message 5: by Eleanor (new)

Eleanor For people who like time travel books - read Ferney by James Long .. I read it long, long ago but it has stayed with me all these years, so I figure it must have been pretty good!

Please forgive my inability to write an appropiate comment. This is my first on line comment...however very mouthy in person so figure I'll catch on. Now then, I loved !!!!! everyone of the listed books, which I have read, except The Time Traveler's Wife. But, was thrilled to see Ferny, which is wonderful!!! I just came upon it browsing through used books on a sale table while on vacation in Maine several years ago. I have never heard anyone else mention it. I loan it out with a chain attached to it and add and delete people by their response to reading it. I was very disappointed with the couple of others he has written, just not up to Ferny.

I am thrilled to have found you all and hope I will be able to get back in the future to 'hear' more of your comments. Totally agree with Robin and Outlander series. Even got my husband (yeah, really!!) to read them. Diana is keeping him alive- he says he has to live long enough to finish the story. We've had our own romance for 46 years and believe me, even though he is a voracious reader of history novels-Cornwell, etc. romance fiction was never an option!
Again, love finding you!! Suzanne


message 8: by Krawlins (new)

Krawlins I have read all the books in the Outlander Series - I got hooked approximately 3 years ago - I am NEVER WITHOUT ONE OF HER BOOKS - I grew Up in England, so I am very familiar with Scotland, I highly recommed Diana Gabaldon.

message 9: by Bridget (new)

Bridget I started Outlander....... AND it was melting my brain so I stopped. Time Traveler's wife is a good book. A good time travel book is Kindred. It just celebrated 25th anniversary reprint. Good book.


message 10: by Meghan (new)

Meghan Time Travel Romance is one of my all-time favorite genres to read. They're so much fun and fantastical, you can't help but wish you were there.

That being said, Outlander is hands down the best book I've ever read- time travel or no. It pulls you in and sweeps you up in the story. It's not hokey but believeable and you empathize with every single character that appears on the page.

It's a very long book but when the 800 pages are over, you can't believe it was so quick of a read. I've read Outlander twice and I'm currently reading the rest of the series.

Visit my blog, www.bitchinbooks.wordpress.com for more reviews and fun book "stuff!"


message 11: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly I really wish there was a way to add a few more to this list! I absolutely LOVE Time-Travel romances. Especially the one's with the big hunk of Scott that is in some of them! To be placed in Scotland's history would be terrifying but to have a big sexy highlander just might make it worth the trip...lol!

I totally agree! Not to mention the historical details..so well done. I read them all!


message 13: by Piratemolly (new)

Piratemolly Since I have read all seven of the Outlander books, I am desperately searching for something else I can really get into. Any suggestions?


message 14: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Schoer A new time travel book that I really loved was "Marking Time" The Immortal Descendants, by April White. It is very well written, fast paced, lots of humor, and best of all, characters well drawn that you want to see again and again in years to come in many more books!

message 16: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Stuebben Why is the Girl with THE dragon TATTOO on here? Its not time travel at all.


message 17: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen Absolutely Yes! Diana Gabaldon has mastered the art of writing this genre. I could never get enough of Jamie & Claire. When will the story continue?


message 18: by Amy (new)

Amy I discovered Susanna Kearsley and her time travel romances are incredible- I highly recommend Winter Seas. I also adore the Outlander series

Totally agree with Linzee and Robin. Outlander series is by far the best I've ever read. I just hope I live long enough to read the end of the series...lol

message 25: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Maybe one of Karen Moning's books?


message 26: by Natalie (new)

Natalie Wipf Can any of you help me find a series... several books. Time travel. The books cross characters. If I remember correctly in one books there is a present say and an alternate universe with doppelgangers. A witch can bring people forward or send them back. In one book the female character is brought to the alternate world and the lesser of the tribe wants her so he fights members of his tribe trying to claim her as their own. She and the leader fall in love and she gets pregnant with twins, a boy and girl. Anyone know the series I'm taking about?
