2012 Time Travel Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!

Since I have a few time travel books on my TBR list, I thought I would sign up! This challenge is being hosted by Laura at  Library of Clean Reads.

Here are the details copied from Laura's blog:

2012 Time Travel Reading Challenge


Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31st, 2012. You can join anytime.

Books from other challenges count as long as they are about time travel.

Books can be children's, middle-grade, YA or adult fiction.

Write a post and link it below including the URL to that sign-up post.


Surprise Trip: 1 to 3 time travel books.
Great Adventure: 4 to 6 time travel books.
Fantastic Journey: 7 to 9 time travel books
Mind-boggling Voyage: 10 to 12 time travel books.

Linking your reviews is optional but I encourage it so that we can discover what time travel books you've read and I can add them to the growing list that Alyce started. Here is the Link Review Page.

Not sure what to read? Here is the list to give you ideas. Please note that Library of Clean Reads is not endorsing any of these books as we have not read all of them and cannot vouch that the content is clean. For those we have read, we will include a link to our review. If you know of other time travel books not mentioned here, please leave me the title in the comment section.
