Top 5 Tuesday: Best Books in Space 🌠

Top Five Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm where bookworms get to chat about their top five books based on different topics.

How many times do I have to say it? Space. is. TERRIFYING. 

A place where there is none of that *ahem* crazy oxygen thing we humans need to live? Why am I the crazy one for the getting stressed over this wild world?

*movies are not helping with the dramatic trailers where every time a main character is threatened with being sucked out into a black void

But okay let’s get into some books so we can where we can enjoy everyone else dealing with oxygen deprivation and Black Voids of Doom!

1 (1)
Sky Without Stars (System Divine, #1)

THIS BOOK MY HEART WOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I wasn’t ready. Thankfully all the action happens on the planet, or I might have been obligated to knock off a star. I’m kidding, I’m not that petty and can also sense some space travel coming in book two.

2 (1)Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

Who am I if I don’t include this on my list? I don’t talk about TLC nearly as much as Mandy (I actually have ~thoughts~ on the last book) but this series is where my scifi love peaked.

This is actually the last space book I can include, if we’re just counting what I’ve read, and Feed has the shortest space mention at the beginning of the book. (I mean, two chapters worth, since people can vacation on the moon.)

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

I didn’t read The Illuminae Files but Mandy did recently! (as a re-read) And everyone loves this and it happens in space and it’s on my Tentative TBR. *cue “OMG PLEASE READ THIS ASAP” comments* I knooow I knoww!

Is space spooky? Please agree with me and validate all my fears, thank you.

  1. Space is indeed spooky, but Sha, you must read Illuminae!! Even if you don’t like it, I’m sure I will still enjoy your rant review! 😂 But I think you’ll like it, so go read it now, please. (Also, still sending loving/helpful vibes your way 💕)

  2. Sha I am so HAPPYYYYYY that I am not the only one finding space terrifying! And looking at your list I want to slap myself because I forgot Cinder!

  3. The Illuminae Files are among my favorite space books. I also really loved the Starbound books (there’s Kaufman again!). I lean more space opera than sci-fi, but they are still in space, right? What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy was really good too

  4. For sure Cinder belongs on this list! And lol I don’t read that much sci-fi, but Illuminae is definitely up there on my TBR as well. *cue everyone screaming at me to read it too* (Btw, Sky Without Stars sounds quite interesting!) Terrific picks! ❤

  5. Illuminae is super awesome, but I think my favorite book set in space would actually have to be The Martian! I remember loving that book and recommending it to my friends about 5 years ago! Plus, I think the movie adaptation is pretty great as well!

    1. Oh no, doesn’t someone get sucked into space in The Martian? The trailer looked very stressful. Or lost in space, or trapped on a planet, or *panics about space*. Astronauts are just really brave and I admire them for doing what I don’t even want to think about, haha.
