Top 5 Tuesday: Books set in Space

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This week, I’ll share some great space-themed books with you!

#1 The Martian:

This was the first thing I thought of when I read this week’s topic! The Martian is the super fascinating tale of an astronaut who is left behind on Mars and has to survive on his own. There’s also a really good movie adaptation starring Matt Damon!

#2 The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy:

In terms of all-time favorite space stuff, The Hitchhicker’s Guide to Galaxy needs to be mentioned. There’s a reason Douglas Adams’ novels are so famous. I love his humor, the book is hilarious!

#3 Cress (The Lunar Chronicles):

As you’ll know by now, I love The Lunar Chronicles. The entire series is very space-related but Cress hits the theme the most. The eponymous character Cress is stuck in a satellite alone in space and it’s brilliant! (and I adore the cover image sooo much)

#4 Stranger in a Strange Land:

Well, this is a classic in the sci-fi realm. It’s technically not set in space but it’s about a human who was raised on Mars and now returned to earth. I am not a big fan of the book (read why over here) but it needs to be mentioned for this theme!

#5 Red Rising:

Full disclosure: I haven’t checked this book out yet. However, I couldn’t think of any other space-related novels I have read. This one is on my to-read-list and seems really fascinating! I hope I get around picking it up soon as I’m very excited about it.
