Welcome to the Bookish Time Travel Tag! I am somewhat obsessed with time travel books and movies. In the 1980s, one of my favorite shows was Voyagers! The interest in time travel has been in the forefront of my mind since then.
Fun Fact: The kid from Voyagers! is the sibling of Punky Brewster. (Actual names –Meeno Peluce and Soleil Moon Frye)
A few years later, I read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells. The obsession has never stopped. I still read time travel books whenever there’s an opportunity. If there’s a show with time travel, I have probably watched it or will be watching it ASAP.
I found the tag on Zezee with Books. The tag was created by the Library Lizard. Please visit their blogs to see their very cool content.

SPOILER TIME: DO YOU EVER SKIP AHEAD TO THE END OF A BOOK JUST TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS?
No. I don’t skip ahead because I don’t want to know.
IF YOU HAD A TIME TURNER, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
I would go to the fall of 1991. In 1991, I was 17 years old. I would have not gotten back together with my then ex-boyfriend. Ever. . . The focus would have been on self-improvement and education instead of boys.
I would have chosen a different college so that I could major in journalism instead of English. The course of my life could have taken a totally different path.
FAVORITE BOOK (IF YOU HAVE ONE) THAT INCLUDES TIME TRAVEL OR TAKES PLACE IN MULTIPLE TIME PERIODS?
WHAT BOOK/SERIES DO YOU WISH YOU COULD GO BACK AND READ AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME?
I don’t usually re-read books. I would re-read The Hunger Games if I had nothing else to read.
