Time Travel Reading Challenge

I found another reading challenge that is perfect for me! This one is run by Alyce from At Home With Books. Ever since I read Outlander time travel has been one of my very favorite genres. I'm going to commit to reading six time travel books for 2010, but I'm sure I'll probably read more than that. Some have been on my TBR list for a long time, so this is incentive to finally get them read! Others I've just added, but I'm always looking for good time travel stories!

The Rules:

Decide how many time travel books you want to read and then read them before the end of 2010 - that's it! (The challenge goes from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.)

My List:

For the challenge I am planning to read at least six of these books.

1. Secrets of the Highlander by Janet Chapman
2. Lady of Hay by Barbara Erskine
3. The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde
4. The Legend MacKinnon by Donna Kauffman
5. A Dance Through Time by Lynn Kurland
6. Pirates by Linda Lael Miller
7. Return of the Highlander by Sara MacKenzie
8. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis
9. Replay by Ken Grimwood
10. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
11. Green Darkness by Anya Seton
12. From Time to Time by Jack Finney
13. Twilight in Babylon by J. Suzanne Frank

January, 2011:  Well, I didn't finish 6 by the end of 2010, but I did read Replay and The Legend MacKinnon January 8th, 2011, so I came pretty close to completing the challenge.

Overall, I was a bit disappointed with my choices, but my two favorites that I read on the list were Replay and A Dance Through Time, which you can read about from my reviews here on my blog.

I just knew you would be up for this challenge! I've heard raves on other sites for The Lady of Hay and I'm going to try to get my hands on a copy. (I think it's out of print).

Yes, Lady of Hay is hard to get hold of I hear, but I'm pretty sure my town library has a copy of it, or so their website says, so that's where I intend to get it from. I hate it though when I go to the libary thinking they have the copy and then - they can't find it! I'm crossing my fingers. Usually, they're more apt to have it if it's hardcover, the paperbacks are much more unreliable, and they have the hardcover.

What a great list of books! I look forward to seeing which ones you choose to read. Good luck with the challenge!

Alyce, yes I'm looking forward to finally getting around to reading some of these too!
