If you love Outlander, the epic book series written by Diana Gabaldon that has been adapted into a hit television show, starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan on Starz with Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore at the helm, we’ve got a list of books that will keep you entertained during these pandemic times.
The Outlander series centers around World War II nurse, Claire Randall, who accidentally falls 200 years back in time. Landing in Scotland, during tense times between the English and Scottish, she meets a group of Highlanders, one of whom is Jamie Fraser, an 18th century feminist with a kilt to boot. Their love story is at the center of this Scottish drama. If you’ve read the robust 8 books in the series, Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow & Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, you’re probably waiting for Gabaldon to finish the ninth book.
Outlander isn’t just a simple time-travel romance. It kicks off with a love triangle between Jamie, Claire, and Frank (though many will argue it wasn’t really a love triangle). Some of the best parts of the series are the steamy love scenes, impending war, pregnancy, epic couple drama, and of course, time travel.
The Outlander books have it all, a strong female lead, sci-fi, and a lot of sex. So, if you love Outlander you’ll be sure to love these 10 books — and since we all can’t leave our homes right now why not time travel through paper?
