“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Top Five Books I Have Or Want To Read Set In Space

Top Five Books I have Or Want To Read Set In Space

 

From Devouring Books (Linked In Title Above):

This Top 5 series started back in October and I kind of lost motivation for making it every week. But it’s back! This is a series of books that I want to read that all have a common theme. Previously on the blog I have focused on witches, werewolves, thrillers, faeries, fairy tale retellings and high fantasy. I am going to try and bring this series back for every Saturday. 

The upcoming schedule is:

 

8/24/19 — Books about Dragons

8/31/19 — Books with a Road Trip

9/7/19 — Summer Reads 

9/14/19 — Set in Space

9/21/19 — Over 500 Pages 

9/28/19 — Books with Maps

Rules!

  • Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.
  • Tag the original post (This one!)
  • Tag 5 people

  1. A Wrinkle In Time By Madeleine L’Engle

Yes it is.

A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet, #1)

 

Released: 1963

Publisher:  Yearling Books

Synopsis:

Out of this wild night, a strange visitor comes to the Murry house and beckons Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O’Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure – one that will threaten their lives and our universe.

Winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in Madeleine L’Engle’s classic Time Quintet.

2) The Martian By Andy Weir

I really need to read Artemis…

 

The Martian

Released: February 11, 2014

Publisher:  Crown

Synopsis:

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills — and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit — he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

3) Sanctuary (Review) and Containment (Review) by Caryn Lix (Q and A From Summer Fling)

Containment Release Date: July 24, 2018

4) The Disasters (Review) – MK England

 

The Disasters

Release Date: December 2018

Publisher: HarperCollins

Synopsis/Review See Above

 

5) Spellhacker By MK England

 

England returns and I couldn’t be more excited! The Disasters was a BLAST (pun intended, ok?! #rimshot)! I expect nothing less from England’s sophomore effort!

Spellhacker

Released: January 2020

Publisher:  HarperCollins

Synopsis:

From the author of The Disasters, this genre-bending YA fantasy heist.

In Kyrkarta, magic—known as maz—was once a freely available natural resource. Then an earthquake released a magical plague, killing thousands and opening the door for a greedy corporation to make maz a commodity that’s tightly controlled—and, of course, outrageously expensive.

Which is why Diz and her three best friends run a highly lucrative, highly illegal maz siphoning gig on the side. Their next job is supposed to be their last heist ever.

But when their plan turns up a powerful new strain of maz that (literally) blows up in their faces, they’re driven to unravel a conspiracy at the very center of the spellplague—and possibly save the world.

No pressure.
