As I've mentioned before, I've decided to start doing book recommendations. These will be done at random times. I'll group my recommendations by cover color, genre, or even base them off an author!
This week I decided to do some recommendations based on the time travel genre. I wish there were more time travel novels, so I'm also going to do a discussion post on this soon.
I read this book over springtime and it was great. I really like the cover as well-it appears as if she is walking on the floor but it's really the wall! In Hourglass, we follow Emerson, a girl who can just happen to see ghosts. She doesn't know why or how. All she knows is that people think she's crazy. She's on a ton of medications because of what people think she is "seeing". After she meets a boy named Michael, who claims to need her help, a whole new world is opened up.
Because there are two covers, I just had to show them both. I really like both of them and I don't know which one I like better. In Tempest, our protagonist is Jackson and he has the power to manipulate time. After his girlfriend, Holly, is murdered right before his eyes, he ends up in 2007 by accident. The fact of the matter is: Holly is still alive in 2007.
This is more of a contemporary with a hint of science fiction. This is my kind of contemporary read, most definitely. We follow Annie, who ends up meeting this guy named Bennett. He is the new kid at school and he appears to be different. Annie doesn't know why until she finally meets him. This book was very unique and original because there is a big twist on time travel.
What are your favorite time travel novels in YA? These are actually the only three that I can think of. If you know of any other time travel novels, please tell me in the comments below because I love getting recommendations!
