Yes, this is totally going to be one of those reviews that is 60% gifs, 30% incoherent screaming and caps locks, 5% me demanding you go out and buy it, 3% analogies made of pure nonsense and 2% coherent review. Now that you have been warned, let's get this party going!!!

What's a guy to do?
If his mom's a police officer and his next door neighbor is some kind of retired government operative (spies tend to be vague about their personal history), he fortifies his suburban neighborhood and turns it into the last bastion of sanity amidst a dying civilization. Obviously.
If that ...more

I liked Adam. I'm pissed we never found out what Herb did for a living. Also: what happened to Adam's dad? I kept expecting him to show up. Frustrating. Even more frust ...more
I'm not sure how to begin talking about it. And I don't think my review will be all that long, because when I think about this book, I don't have any positive things in my head. ...more
For Adam Daley, it's no different. On one day, all technology shuts down. At first it seems like a normal power outage, until kids discover that cellphones are down, municipal utilities are out of commissio ...more

World Building- 8.5/10
Quickie Review- This was not a good book. 2.5 stars is generous, actually. I tried so hard to get into this book. Really. I saw it at the library and went, OMG THAT'S A SICK COVER. And the blub on goodreads was pretty cool. HOWEVER, there were numerous flaws with this book. First of all, the plot never got interesting until page 350. NO action, just a whole bunch of planning and talking. In no way was this a g ...more
As I mentioned before, I joined Red Maple because of my passion of reading. After recently the layed back, How to Outrun A Crocodile With Your Shoes Untied, I felt the urge to read an intense ...more
What I liked about this one is that unlike so many post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels out there that take place 100 years or more in the future, this one takes place in present day. It made the disaster and the subsequent consequences much more relatable for me. I could actually see something like this happening toda ...more
It’s not that it was bad so far, but it was the same old dystopian/survival story. I’ve read it before…a gazillion times.
But if someone who is new to this genre read this, they’d probably have a fair chance of enjoying this.
The Rule of Three honestly reminded me of a less epic, washed out, YA version of The Last Light series, without the lovable characters and awesome action and suspense. I didn’t bother to finish it though, so maybe it picked up? I just didn’t want ...more

Part of a Dystopian/ Post Apocalyptic future series, The Rule of Thre3 will grab readers from the very first page.
This book is targeted at young adults, but is captivating enough that adult readers will love the story as well.
I rate this book as 5 OUT OF 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So it's time to start another dystopian series. I found the cover really catching and it is quite similar to Monument 14 also their texture is the same ( because they have the same publisher, at the paperbacks at least).
After reading they synopsis, reading other reviews and reading a lot of dystopia or post-apocalyptic novel, I find this book boring. Also, there is a similar tv show: Revolution, even though I haven't watched it.
So it started when Adam and Todd is writing an essay then the whole ...more
