Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Does anyone remember Piiiiiiggsss innnnnn Spaaaaaaccceeee from the Muppets? I don’t know why that struck me when I was sitting to do this topic, but it did! I’m not a HUGE fan of space books, mostly because I associate them with Star Trek and bleh… but there are some pretty awesome ones that include space and space travel!
Here are my Top Ten* Books Set in Space:
Chaos Walking Trilogy – So this doesn’t really take place IN SPACE but it does take place on another planet and Viola sort of travels in space….
Under the Never Sky – Again… not in space but it does have a spacey vibe.
Cinder – Maybe I should have picked a different topic… this one isn’t in space but it involves others FROM space… and I think the next installment, Cress, does take place in space!
*And here I start a new topic with spacey-futuristic worlds because my “set in space” topic wasn’t working!
Starters – This world totally creeps me out.. but in kind of a good way. I love the idea of renting bodies. Don’t ask me why.
For Darkness Shows the Stars/Across a Star Swept Sea – I am IN LOVE with this world more than I’m sure is healthy. Seriously, they’re both beautiful, beautiful settings and so imaginative that it was easy to be smack dab in the middle of both settings!
Icons – If you haven’t read this one yet, I highly suggest you do. The world is scary, filled with some kind of life-force that controls your own.
Alright… hrm… I know I’ve read more “spacey” books…. but for some reason can’t put my finger on them!
