Top 5 Books Set In Space

I LOVE SCI FI. ESPECIALLY SPACE. If galaxy could be classed as a colour it would be my favourite. I am always drawn to space sci fi before any other kind in all mediums. Books, TV, Movies, pin badges! So, this was hard as the options are wide and I am so excited for everyone else’s recommendations!

This idea was originally created by Mandy @Devouring Books big thanks to Mandy for hosting and introducing me to so many other book bloggers and this tag! Please see the September prompts below.

Empress Of A Thousand Stars by Rhoda Belleza


Set in the Desuco Quadrant, we follow Rhiannon, a princess soon to be queen. Her family were murdered in a plane accident and she is now of age to take the throne, but when there is an attempt on her life she flees her kingdom in search of help and answers. With fast moments, excellent dialogue and world building, this duology is a quick, easy read set in an enormous solar system.

The Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams


Minutes before the Earth is destroyed Arthur is save by his friend, Ford and finds himself in space travelling the universe with a random bunch of companions and a guide to hitch hiking. I am yet to read this, however it has been on my TBB forever.

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kauffman


This I will read this year without fail. 1. It’s one of the books for my reading challenge and 2. From reviews I’ve seen, it’s a quippy fun, Firefly-esque story with a great cast and the greats Jay & Amie behind the pages. What more does your sci-fi nerd want… maybe a space corgi… see below.

Elysia by C. C. Francis


I can honestly say I picked this up thanks to this ‘a corgi mascot’. My book wife, Narah Quinn told me about this book, then gifted me the paperback and y’all gotta know. I am so excited! It has everything I could possibly want, Corgis, Pirates, Space. WIN! (I have no idea what else this book is about) Apologies.

Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell


Les Mis in space. I can honestly say those words are the reason I bought this book and ravaged it when it turned up in March. So, the Les Mis part isn’t wrong, however it goes a different direction to the original text, probably because it’s based in space. It’s a little slow to begin with, but it is creating an atmosphere. Also, it’s kinda hard to not be slow when you’ve launched Paris in to space, you kinda got explain yourself, ya know?

  1. Great post! I hope you enjoy AR when you read it. There are so many mixed reviews and actually a lot of people have been disappointed with it. But I loved it! Gave me similar Illuminae vibes, but on a lesser scale lol also, that cover for Sky Without Stars is amazing 😍 I would buy it just for that cover?! And Les Mis in space!? I’m very curious lol

    1. It worked, I dont know how, but I really loved Sky Without Stars, I pre ordered it after I heard that phrase. Les Mis in Space. Absolutely sold! I feel like I’ll love AR, I really dont know how it’ll disappoint me tbh. Space, fun characters, silliness and funny quips! I’m easily pleased 😉
