I spied this book at work today. While reading the summary of the book, I thought this would be a great one to read for something a bit different. Would you time travel if you could? I wonder what happens to Tom in this book!

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he’s been alive for centuries. Tom has lived history–performing with Shakespeare, exploring the high seas with Captain Cook, and sharing cocktails with Fitzgerald. Now, he just wants an ordinary life.
So Tom moves back his to London, his old home, to become a high school history teacher–the perfect job for someone who has witnessed the city’s history first hand. Better yet, a captivating French teacher at his school seems fascinated by him. But the Albatross Society, the secretive group which protects people like Tom, has one rule: Never fall in love. As painful memories of his past and the erratic behavior of the Society’s watchful leader threaten to derail his new life and romance, the one thing he can’t have just happens to be the one thing that might save him. Tom will have to decide once and for all whether to remain stuck in the past, or finally begin living in the present.
How to Stop Time tells a love story across the ages – and for the ages – about a man lost in time, the woman who could save him, and the lifetimes it can take to learn how to live. It is a bighearted, wildly original novel about losing and finding yourself, the inevitability of change, and how with enough time to learn, we just might find happiness.

Here are some books that I want to read:
New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor has joined with Heather Webb to create this unforgettably romantic novel of the Great War.
August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front, she believes—as everyone does—that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafes of Paris.
But as history tells us, it all happened so differently…
Evie and Thomas experience a very different war. Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs to play a greater part in the conflict—but how?—and as Thomas struggles with the unimaginable realities of war he also faces personal battles back home where War Office regulations on press reporting cause trouble at his father’s newspaper business. Through their letters, Evie and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fears—and grow ever fonder from afar. Can love flourish amid the horror of the First World War, or will fate intervene?
Christmas 1968. With failing health, Thomas returns to Paris—a cherished packet of letters in hand—determined to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one final letter is waiting for him…
Sequel to Insatiable!! Vampires…adventures of Meena Harper!
Emma Clayton’s love life is decidedly passionless and predictable.

Trapped in Victorian England, Emma is determined to find a way home, back to her fiancé and the life he’s mapped out for them. That is until she meets the captivating Lord Henry Drake, son to the Earl of Pembrooke. Handsome and gallant, he quickly challenges her understanding of love and duty. But Emma is hiding a terrible secret. She knows of Lord Henry’s untimely death, a date which is fast approaching. And before long, she will be forced to choose between saving the man she loves and returning to a life that seems so far away.
The Librarian by Christy Sloat
He’s from 1892 England, she’s in a small library in 2017. And that’s just the start of their troubles. Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She’d come only to find a librarian for her Gram’s library, a custodian for the collection of mysterious books she’d promised to protect. On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his. When the last page is read he’s gone and Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages…
I have finished this book! I liked the story. It was a cute, fast paced story. It’s a story. Everyone is going to like some things about it and not. I think it was a bit too fast paced and could have been written a bit longer. I think Emme is a character that is trying to figure things out. The other characters that come into play was rather interesting. I think the author kind of squished everything together rather quickly. It’s a story! I am keeping this book on my shelf.
I have finished! I will write a more in depth review soon. I will read her next book! I do have to say that I loved this book a great deal.
I am currently reading right now. So far so good!
I spy a new book to read! While surfing Twitter, someone that I follow posted about this book and I had to put this in my to read pile!
