Time Loop Books For Readers Who Love Loops

Browse this book list filled with the best time loop books. Today’s list includes new release books, thrillers, mystery, young adult, and holiday books.

Time loop books can be the trickiest to engage readers, but they can be one of the most comforting kinds of books as we contemplate how characters can fix their past mistakes to break the loop. 

I know there are many moments in our lives that we wish we could do again, and in those ways, these stories can be incredibly therapeutic. 

What Are Time Loop Books? 

Time loop books are stories where characters repeatedly experience the same events or day, often without initially realizing it.

While many time loop books can fall into the science fiction genre, we wanted to showcase all the other ways time loops can happen in our stories.

In this time travel story, the characters are trapped in a repeating cycle of events that they cannot escape.

These are often called Groundhog Day stories and are among the trickiest to keep readers engaged.

If you missed the Book Gang podcast, we discuss the beauty in these time loop stories through new books that recently hit store shelves and a few great backlist recommendations to get your book stack started.
