The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry

Once Upon a Kiss by Robin Palmer

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen by Katherine Howe

Wes met a beautiful girl named Annie while filming a seance in the East Village, but he can’t help but feel that there’s something strange about her – almost as if she belong to another place…or another time.

Popular by Maya Van Wagenen

Ok, there’s no real time-travel in this book, but it’s pretty close: This is the heartwarmingly delightful true story of Maya Van Wagenen, who followed a popularity guide from the 1950′s and discovered the true meaning of popular.

 

Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher
