    1. Get a grip, Jenna, I tell myself furiously People s lives depend on you tomorrow, and all you can think about is snogging Max.As a child, I read almost the entire Baby Sitter s Club books Almost 20 years later, I am rather bemused and amused to realize that I ve essentially just read another story about babysitting Sure, the premise is different, there s a dystopian future and by dystopian, I mean the let s throw random dystopian element crap at a wall and see what sticks , but really, this is a [...]

    2. Oh my word, this ended up being one big disappointment At first I thought for sure I had another winner, and was planning on giving it five stars, but then I got to the second half of the book and almost rage quit I ll be discussing the plot in depth though I wouldn t consider it too spoilerish , and any spoiler tags will true spoilers, so don t open the tags if you don t want to know what they say The first partThe book opens with our protagonist as an inmate in prison, and one thing that I can [...]

    3. Nose Graze Young Adult book reviews2.5 ish starsOh, ACID You could have been amazing You could have been wonderful With a cover like that and a badass main character, you could have been the love of my bookish life But, alas After a glorious start, you kind of crashed and burned.I have a handy dandy enjoyment graph to illustrate my thoughts ACID starts out strong with a 17 year old badass who can take on fully grown, perverted men, and an epic prison break I LOVED how Jenna kicked some serious a [...]

    4. She is in an all male prison o_O Don t know if I should jump up and down or bite my fingernails Review to come,maybe.

    5. EDIT The book is now out here in the US, but I am not getting a Nook copy, and certainly not another physical copy BUT There is an audiobook, which I am going to POUNCE on like a tiger Gah I can t wait WARNING THERE WILL BE A LARGE AMOUNT OF CURSING IN THIS REVIEW IF YOU DO NOT APPROVE OR LIKE CURSING, PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW, OR IGNORE THE WORDS THANK YOU.Oh My God This book is fucking amazing I m sorry, but that s how I feel language included This book is fucking amazing, and I am so so [...]

    6. 5 Words Wow.Freaking wow.I loved this Absolutely loved it.Full review to come I can t even think right now so it may take a little while.

    7. Slightly Spoilerish I wanted to like this book so bad Maybe my expectations were too high, but when the blurb talks about a girl who has survived in an all male prison for 2 years, it s hard not to expect awesomeness.At the start, Jenna was everything I was expecting She was smart, tough, didn t take crap from anyone, and would kick anyone s butt who so much as looked at her wrong Then she gets broken out of prison and that s when things started going downhill for me Jenna changes a little too m [...]

    8. This fast paced dystopian has a very 1984 big brother feel, but definitely with an updated kick ass heroine The world building is great just like with any good dystopian you can see how society became the way it did I also loved the plot progression everything flowed along really well from one tense situation to another It also wrapped everything up nice and neat with a hint of trouble that could be a second book.

    9. Akjnpijpojpinpi08077 0iklknlk Bourne Identity meets The Hunger Games Bring a brown paper bag for inevitable hyperventilation.

    10. Being a dystopian standalone it s fair to say I had my doubts To include world building in a way that wasn t just annoying boring info dumps , plus character development, plus world destroying with a satisfying conclusion looks to be an impressive feat However I needn t have worried because Acid managed it all flawlessly.Dystopias are hit or miss for me If it works and captures my attention from start to finish I can rave about it all day, but if I m bored or doubt its authenticity then it can k [...]

    11. Ugh, why do I continue to do this to myself First off, I fully blame the cover Look at it I was all ready for a hell raising ginger to kick some ass Then I read the first twenty pages and find out our heroine s in an all male prison, fully capable of defending herself with some awesome ninja skills and was like HEELLSSS YEEAHHH It went downhill quickly after that What we have here is some really shoddy dystopian world building with a lot of implausible situations, and a Mary Sue save the day but [...]

    12. I loved acid What a cracking story and kick ass heroine I couldn t read it quickly enough and was hooked from page one Acid is set in a future Britain and is the story of Jenna Strong Jenna is 17 and has just broken out of a high security prison that she was put into for murdering her parents Throughout the course of the book you get an insight into a corrupt totalitarian world where the people are watched every minute of every day and any slight disoriented is punished harshly I loved several t [...]

    13. Originally posted on serendipityreviewsI was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the most anticipated UK debuts of the year when I attended a blogger brunch at Random House I feel like I have been waiting forever to get my hands on this book, so I was really pleased when I got the opportunity to read it early I wasn t disappointed.Emma Pass has created an excellent dystopian perspective of the UK in 2113 Alongside Claire Merle, she has shown that UK authors can write excellent dystopian YA ju [...]

    14. Originally posted at Daydreaming Bookworm I received an Advanced Reading Copy Uncorrected Proof of this book from Random House U.K in exchange for an honest review With a bad ass heroine like Lara Croft and a fast paced plot like Anthony Horowitz s Alex Rider series,ACID is one debut that you definitely must keep an eye on when it comes out Dystopia has now become quite a dangerous genre to base your story on,given the rise in competition on that particular genre.At least,that s what I think.Eve [...]

    15. This review has been posted on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Reminiscent of the TV show Alias and the movie SALT, ACID is a futuristic dystopian featuring a kickass main character assuming multiple identities throughout the novel, with nonstop action, romance and constant twists and turns.Jenna Strong is serving a life sentence in prison for killing her parents Despite being the only female, she can take on even the most hardened criminals with a flick of her wrist One day, her trus [...]

    16. Based on the ARC I loved this book Jenna Strong is not only kick ass, but she is very likable, too Pass the author does a fabulous job of giving enough information to create tension and curiosity, but not so much as to overwhelm and not so little as to confuse The world building was stellar Although I ve never to London or the future, I felt grounded in the setting Oh, and did I mention the non stop thrill ride Yes, your heart will pound until the last page and beyond Just clear your schedule be [...]

    17. I m actually surprised to see so many negative reviews for this, because I thought it was pretty entertaining Sure, lots of farfetched things you have to accept at face value in this dystopian world, but this is the sort of book I d enjoy as I would an action movie anyway.So not spectacularly outstanding, perhaps, but it s not nearly as bad as I d been led to expect.

    18. I got a copy of this to review through the Vine program Honestly I was drawn to this book because of the awesome cover and the synopsis that promised an action packed novel Then when I figured out it was another YA dystopian read I was a bit worriedI am kind of sick of that genre right now However, I was pleasantly surprisedI really really loved this book It was incredibly engaging and very fast paced.In 2113 ACID rules the world, they are a military police like organization that is ruling what [...]

    19. You know what I want to avoid bashing Acid, because a lot of you loved this book, so in my third attempt to review it I ll try to keep it short so it won t dissolve into a rant.I felt disappointed in this book because Emma started as this strong young heroine who fights against all odds despite the improbability of succeeding in all male high security prison, but as soon as she is whisked away that drive goes out of the window.Emma is impulsive and makes stupid mistakes throughout the whole book [...]

    20. Unputdownable is an overused word, but in this case it s true As soon as I opened the first page, I couldn t stop reading ACID It has all the hallmarks of a great thriller a feisty heroine, non stop action and a dark conspiracy at its centre Set in a near future UK that s scarily realistic, the story follows 16 year old Jenna Strong as she tries to stay one step ahead of the law, and in doing so, learns the truth about the government and herself Anyone who appreciates a truly kick ass MC and can [...]

    21. Review to comeCloser to pub date but let me just say that THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2014 I mean PHENOMENAL Emma Pass is an author to watch for SHE ROCKS

    22. Smart, sexy and sleek is what the cover tells you the novel will be A dystopian set in London sounded something that I would like even though I am not too much of a fan of dystopians And there is a reason I don t like them very much well, than one actually The first reason is that they scare me with their probable reality, I mean, some of the things we read about in dystopian novels is far too realistic for me They give a glimpse of a possible future, a future I hope I am not alive to see The o [...]

    23. I was excited to receive ACID that I started it within a few days of receiving it, and while the story had such a strong start, after a few chapters it slowly started getting weaker And so in the end, it was impossible for me to love it, but I certainly didn t hate it.As I said before the plot started off strong but no sooner than things getting interesting, I started to lose interest It was pretty easy to figure out what had happened to Jenna before she did, and because of this there was no exc [...]

    24. She s out for revenge She s on the run She s their worst fear.She s the key to ACID s destruction.But as evil as ACID are, they hold the key to Jenna Strong s pastcrets that have been locked away, secrets that could change everything Jenna thinks she knows In a race against the clock, Jenna must bring down ACID and their hold on her world before it s too late, whilst managing to uncover the truth about why she s being hunted Why she has blood on her hands And why she is so highly coveted by both [...]

    25. When I picked it up, I mixed up the blurb of this book with another dystopian book but I wanted to read this one too so it s fine Overall, I enjoyed reading Acid, a YA standalone It was easy to get into and I liked the plot about Acid It was fast paced even though I thought the beginning and the end were the best parts of the book I wish we had of Max and Jenna About the ending, I m content to have a HEA instead of having doubts on the future of the characters I ll forget about the mention of v [...]
