11/22/63 by Stephen King
I had never picked up a Stephen King novel before, so this was a new one for me! I also haven't read many time travel books over the years since they're usually over the top and whatnot. However, the fact that this book was centered around the JFK assassination drew me in and did not disappoint (history nerd!). As far as time travel goes, I think this was the most realistic way to approach a story and I actually ended up loved the switches between modern day and the 1960s. The only downside to this novel is that it's pretty long and could have been condensed to 500 pages or so.
(The second half of the story takes place in a small Texas town where people eat pie at local diners while catching up with their neighbors. I desperately want to experience that. ;)
