Here we are with another great monthly motif- time traveller! I really love this one because there are so many different directions you can take it (I think I said that last month too). I can’t wait to see your creativity with your book choices…
“Read a book set in a different dimension, a book in which time travel is involved or a dystopian or science fiction book where reality looks very different than what we’re used to.”

In March I read two books that fit the challenge.
Parallell worlds/time travel: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray: http://kingmagu.blogspot.no/2017/04/cbr9-book-29-thousand-pieces-of-you-by.html
Dystopian science fiction: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness: http://kingmagu.blogspot.no/2017/04/cbr9-book-33-knife-of-never-letting-go.html
I read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness at a friends insistence and then by chance it had time travel towards the very end so not a deliberate find but an amazing one nonetheless – Definitely recommend!

I actually read two books in March for this category – ‘The Rest Of Us Just Live Here’ by Patrick Ness where reality looks VERY different to what we’re used to and vampires, alien threats, zombie invasions etc. are just another day for the local teens plus ‘Blood For Blood’ by Ryan Graudin which gives a small glimpse at what the world could look like if Adolf Hitler had won WWII.
Well I didn’t finish it before the month was up but I really liked this story. Marking Time by April White. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17283418-marking-time
I read “The time-travelling cat and the Tudor treasure” by Julia Jarman 🙂
I’m in, just under the wire! I read Stephen King’s book 11/22/63.
I had intended to read Outlander, but I couldn’t give it the time it required. I’ll get back to it, though, as I enjoyed the first 100 pages. So for this month’s challenge I read ‘Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks’ by Terrance Dicks. It was okay, but not as good as Outlander would have been, Here is my review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1956455082
I read this one as it has been on my TBR pile for a long time – very glad I did read it too!
Thanks for this month’s motif challenge – just the kick in the pants I needed to finally pick this one up.
I read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. That’s a very frightening dystopian future!
Here’s my review:
I read Love Beyond Time
I didn’t get to read much this month. Mom had surgery to remove a growth onher thyroid and a couple weeks were taken up to making sure she didn’t talk too much or overdo things as she tends to do. At least the news was good. No cancer. I re-read Clockwork Orange and hopefully I have time for one more book before the new motif starts.
I read The Fold by Peter Clines, sadly it was a bit of a disappointment, but I’m really enjoying all the reading challenges.
That’s too bad. I usually like Peter Clines books.
Well, sounds like I had the same idea as Julie, although I didn’t even know of Doomsday Book’s existence until recently. http://www.molibrarian.com/2017/03/book-review-doomsday-book-by-connie.html
I read Unwholly, the second book in the Unwind series. Set in a world where after a second civil war debating the abortion/life issue, parents can retroactively abort the child once they reach the age of 13 with the belief that they are still alive, just in a “divided state” since all parts go to implants for others. Begs the question: at what point are you truly dead, and when are you not you?

I read Doomsday Book by Connie Willis. I’d read it once years ago and it’s still a terrific read!
@Julie Looks like you enjoyed it so yay!
