If you’re not aware of Reddit or just think it’s a place for nerds to talk about World of Warcraft then you’re really missing out. Recently I found the incredible subreddit /r/suggestmeabook, and quite frankly, it’s my new favourite place to get book recommendations.
/r/suggestmeabook is a feed on Reddit where anybody can put in a request for a book recommendation along any line. If you’ve just read a great series and want something similar, this is a great place to pose that question; if you want to get into a certain author but don’t know where to start, you can get a suggestion; or if you just have a hankering for a very specific storyline, you can ask away in this subreddit also.
One of the big posts on there recently was by Chekov-Antosha who asked people: “I’m open to anything right now but I’m probably more interested in ones that have plenty of travelling around rather being rooted to one time or location. But I might be surprised depending on the story.”
This led to a lot of people giving their best suggestion as to where he should start based on some of the best time travel books they’ve read. What I thought I’d do, to save you lovely lot the trouble, is go ahead and list some of the very top suggestions below so you can get your time travel on.
11/22/63 by Stephen King
Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Timeline by Michael Crichton
So there you have six of the highest-rated books on the r/suggestmeabook subreddit. These were the top books that people posted as responses and then received the most amount of upvotes.
To make it easier for you, here is the list of books:
- 11/22/63 by Stephen King
- Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
- This is How You Lose the Time War by Amad El-Mohtoar and Mac Gladstone
- Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
- Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
- Timeline by Michael Crichton
