    Toxic by Lydia Kang is a young adult standalone romantic science fiction fantasy read that has maybe just a touch of horror to it too. When finished with this one it was one of those wow, I didn?t expect THAT moments, but in a good way of course. Seventeen year old Hana awakens ab...

    When you read the blurb for Toxic, you immediately recognise the power and potential of the story. And I think it's safe to say that it delivered on all accounts. "I slumber next to a boy who first saw me as an impediment, who taught me how to fall in love in low gravity." I di...

    A fast-paced action-packed, romantic, sci-fi adventure that grabs hold of you and does not let go. Characters: Hana Fenn Cyclo Portia Gammand Miki Fenn & Hanna Their relationship moved pretty quick, but considering they're in a life or death situation I suppose that's...

    I found Toxic to be a really unique experience: a mish-mash of multiple genres that when put together for me just flowed. I would describe this if I had to clarify as a Romantic sci-fi YA with elements of horror. Set in space on an organic ship it was the original premise put for...

    Toxic reminds me of a cross between The 100 and Passengers. It's a survival story which belongs in the horror genre. It's also a romance read. It's fast-paced and written well. I'm not really a fan of horror and that's probably why I didn't like this more. For the right reader, you wil...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I have read a few books about sentient spaceships, and my favorite thing about this is that it seemed like afresh take on sentient ships. Our girl Hana wakes up to find t...

    4 stars One of the most notable things about Toxic was how readable and gripping it was. I started it (unwisely) on a school night, hoping to read a few chapters before setting it down and going to bed, but I ended up binging the majority of this book very late at night when I defin...

    In TOXIC, an artificially created girl gets abandoned on a sentient spaceship and falls for the mercenary who has to make sure it gets destroyed if he wants to save his sister. So, I'm in love. TOXIC is exactly the kind of light sci-fi I love and cherish. A little bit of aliens,...

    Hannah has been asleep for an entire week on the Cyclo?s matrix. When she wakes, Hannah realizes her mother is gone and she is all alone on a deserted ship. No one on the ship besides her mother and Cyclo even knew of Hannah?s existence. She was never allowed to leave her room on C...

    Cyclo, the first and largest biological ship of its kind, is dying. A small crew of mercenaries have handed over the rights to their life to document the death of the ship, but the abandoned ship is anything but abandoned?one girl has been left behind. This is kind of a sci-fi, ...

    I marked it DNF because I skipped all over the place. I love science fiction. Seriously...love it. But I wasn?t feeling this book. The ?teenagers? were too self aware for my taste. ?Am I acting human enough, oh wait I am human. Or am I?? It was a little too pretentious for me...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! I didn't think, when I first started this book, it was going to be a 4.5 star read. The cover makes it look like a light YA sci-fi romance; instead, it's a delightfully dark, horror-filled space thriller. Requesting t...

    Ranconi and Vikas Adam! What could go wrong? Yes I only chose this book cos f them. Poor Hana, she spent 17 years in one room. Hidden from everyone. Because if they found out she would have been killed. Only those meant to be born are born, and she was not meant to. But she has her ...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/11/25/... When it comes to science fiction, there are few things more irresistible to me than a story about killer robots or rogue AI. This is the premise behind Toxic, a young adult space adventure set aboard Cyclo,...

    DNF @ 30% This book was ok. As I have very little time for reading lately, I don't want to spend it on a book I know I won't feel strongly about. I think my main problem with this book, if one can really call it that, is that I'm not the target audience. I feel like I've outgrow...

    "Toxic" is a creative YA sci-fi that primarily takes place on the ship, Cyclo. Cyclo is actually a living organism which is designed to work like a machine. However, Cyclo is dying, and things are changing. Hana was born on Cyclo and has only known the ship. Her mother, Dr. Um, is the ...

    2.75? She wasn?t supposed to exist so when they left her on the ship they left for dead. His team wasn?t supposed to be on the ship but it was supposed to be abandoned. There starts a romance and basically thats all that happens after that. They start to fall in love and b...

    Finished reading: September 7th 2018 "Funny how, with everything available to us, we still want to learn how to do things the old ways." *** A copy of this bookwas kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Entangled: Teen in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! *** ...

    The most interesting character is the ship. I still don't quite understand the architecture of Cyclo or the science of her matrix, but she's by far the most complex and intriguing character. The story itself is quite exciting once the first death occurs. I was all set to rate this four...

    How many time can I say I love Science Fiction? LOL. This book was light fast paced read about a girl who was only starting to live in a dying world. Unlike a lot of heroines in other YA books where it's already book 3 and they are still whining, I loved how fast Hana learned who she w...

    DNF @ 30% This book was ok. As I have very little time for reading lately, I don't want to spend it on a book I know I won't feel strongly about. I think my main problem with this book, if one can really call it that, is that I'm not the target audience. I feel like I've outgrow...

    "Toxic" is a creative YA sci-fi that primarily takes place on the ship, Cyclo. Cyclo is actually a living organism which is designed to work like a machine. However, Cyclo is dying, and things are changing. Hana was born on Cyclo and has only known the ship. Her mother, Dr. Um, is the ...

    2.75? She wasn?t supposed to exist so when they left her on the ship they left for dead. His team wasn?t supposed to be on the ship but it was supposed to be abandoned. There starts a romance and basically thats all that happens after that. They start to fall in love and b...

    The most interesting character is the ship. I still don't quite understand the architecture of Cyclo or the science of her matrix, but she's by far the most complex and intriguing character. The story itself is quite exciting once the first death occurs. I was all set to rate this four...

    How many time can I say I love Science Fiction? LOL. This book was light fast paced read about a girl who was only starting to live in a dying world. Unlike a lot of heroines in other YA books where it's already book 3 and they are still whining, I loved how fast Hana learned who she w...

    When you read the blurb for Toxic, you immediately recognise the power and potential of the story. And I think it's safe to say that it delivered on all accounts. "I slumber next to a boy who first saw me as an impediment, who taught me how to fall in love in low gravity." I di...

    Toxic reminds me of a cross between The 100 and Passengers. It's a survival story which belongs in the horror genre. It's also a romance read. It's fast-paced and written well. I'm not really a fan of horror and that's probably why I didn't like this more. For the right reader, you wil...

    Read my NetGalley eARC. Opinions are my own Did you love Annihilation and wish it took place on the Nostromo? This book was written specifically for you. Seventeen-year-old Hana has lived on a bioship named Cyclo until a crew of criminals shows up to do some research. Cyclo is dying...

    Behold my heart, cause my universe has just shattered apart! Last year I read and loved The November Girl ( read my review here), so I decided to have Toxic on my most anticipated books to read in 2018, and I wasn?t disappointed. The world building blew my mind. I think Lydia Kang...

    Rich with creative sci-fi worldbuilding details, this book was a fascinating read, and the tension kept building as the time grew shorter and shorter for the characters to survive on the ailing bio-ship, Cyclo. For readers who prefer their novels less graphic or violent, this might not...

    "Toxic" is a creative YA sci-fi that primarily takes place on the ship, Cyclo. Cyclo is actually a living organism which is designed to work like a machine. However, Cyclo is dying, and things are changing. Hana was born on Cyclo and has only known the ship. Her mother, Dr. Um, is the ...

    How many time can I say I love Science Fiction? LOL. This book was light fast paced read about a girl who was only starting to live in a dying world. Unlike a lot of heroines in other YA books where it's already book 3 and they are still whining, I loved how fast Hana learned who she w...

    DNF @ 30% This book was ok. As I have very little time for reading lately, I don't want to spend it on a book I know I won't feel strongly about. I think my main problem with this book, if one can really call it that, is that I'm not the target audience. I feel like I've outgrow...

    Toxic by Lydia Kang is a young adult standalone romantic science fiction fantasy read that has maybe just a touch of horror to it too. When finished with this one it was one of those wow, I didn?t expect THAT moments, but in a good way of course. Seventeen year old Hana awakens ab...

    When you read the blurb for Toxic, you immediately recognise the power and potential of the story. And I think it's safe to say that it delivered on all accounts. "I slumber next to a boy who first saw me as an impediment, who taught me how to fall in love in low gravity." I di...

    A fast-paced action-packed, romantic, sci-fi adventure that grabs hold of you and does not let go. Characters: Hana Fenn Cyclo Portia Gammand Miki Fenn & Hanna Their relationship moved pretty quick, but considering they're in a life or death situation I suppose that's...

    I found Toxic to be a really unique experience: a mish-mash of multiple genres that when put together for me just flowed. I would describe this if I had to clarify as a Romantic sci-fi YA with elements of horror. Set in space on an organic ship it was the original premise put for...

    Toxic reminds me of a cross between The 100 and Passengers. It's a survival story which belongs in the horror genre. It's also a romance read. It's fast-paced and written well. I'm not really a fan of horror and that's probably why I didn't like this more. For the right reader, you wil...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I have read a few books about sentient spaceships, and my favorite thing about this is that it seemed like afresh take on sentient ships. Our girl Hana wakes up to find t...

    4 stars One of the most notable things about Toxic was how readable and gripping it was. I started it (unwisely) on a school night, hoping to read a few chapters before setting it down and going to bed, but I ended up binging the majority of this book very late at night when I defin...
