For Timeslip Tueday--links to all my time travel reviews, sorted by time period

To celebrate having reviewed 75 timeslip stories since I first began Timeslip Tuesday, I've created a page where links to all my reviews can be found, sorted by the time period travelled to. I've also given the audience age for the books. I hope this a useful resource, and I hope to keep adding to it!

I think it absolutely fascinating that times of presidential popularity (Eisenhower, 1953-1961, Reagan, 1981-1989, Clinton's first term, 1993-1997 ) appear to coincide with low periods in time travel book publishing. If this is true (and I know it's silly, of course, to make any sort of argument from the small amount of data I have, but I find it amusing), it doubtless implies that times of perceived prosperity lead to a smug complacency about one's own place in history. Or something like that :).

If you have any time travel/timeslip books to recommend to me, I'd love to have them! My list is really middle grade heavy, and I'd love more YA and adult books on it (although the adult side of things seems daunting....)


  1. To Say Nothing of the Dog (My favorite time travel book...)

    Thanks for gathering all the reviews together on a single page. It makes navigation easier, and I can easily scan for what I have/haven't read. :)

  2. There's a book that I quite love: "The Vision of Stephen" by Lolah Burford. Our main character travels from the Middle Ages to the 1820s when thing become to hard for him in his own time. I think it's an absolutely lovely book. I don't know if it's adult or YA - but it's worth giving a try if you haven't read it, and if you come across it:



  3. I didn't see The Root Cellar by Janet Lunn listed. I really liked that book as a child. Time travel to the Civil War era via root cellar.

  4. My favourite Australian book is a timeslip book--Playing Beattie Bow by Ruth Park. I can't recommend it enough.

    And thank you for the congratulations!!

  5. Thanks for the recommendations! I feel better having books on my list of future post prospects!

    And you're very welcome, Rhiannon! So exciting!
