    One thought on “The Rules

    1. Wendy Darling on said:

      3.5 stars In a season crowded with all kinds of YA sci fi thrillers, The Rules offers an unusual heroine: Ariane Tucker, a alien-human hybrid girl who must hide among humans in order to avoid capture.*waits a beat* Oh come on, you're going to have to just roll with this idea! If you can accept the premise and a story that focuses more on the characters than complex worldbuilding or non-stop action, this is a fun, enjoyable science fiction thriller that reads very much like a paranormal story.The [...]

      [Insert Random Political Name Here] Eats Babies 3.25 stars. Just a hunch on my part, but it would appear that this author has an axe to grind with conservatives after reading some of the snide commentary in The Rules. Hey, I'm all for everyone having the right to agree/disagree with whatever's going on out in the "real world," but I'd rather not read about what's distasteful to an author in my books. For a moment, I thought I was in the middle of campaign season and watching one of those "Campai [...]

      Meet Ariane: the alien hybrid that shares a similarity with my dear beloved friend, Carrie (yes, the evil one!). This is one heck of a fun book. Having been raised in a lab her whole life, Ariane now has to live among humans… in high school--how horrifying! Instead of concentrating on the alien conspiracies or sci-fi aspect, The Rules involves mostly a lot of high school drama where Ariane is trying hard to stay invisible, but a certain… she person… is making this incredibly hard. After di [...]

    4. Lisbeth Avery Domus Libri on said:

      Oh eurgh.While looking through the numerous reviews for THE RULES, I came about a review calling this "THE HUNGER GAMES meets THE HOST". I found this hard to believe since pretty much every book is marketed as THE HUNGER GAMES nowadays. But, hey, she had to have come from somewhere right?Yeah no. Not at all. I don't think I'll ever get how this is close to THE HUNGER GAMES, or THE HOST for that matter, unless they suddenly morphed into a teen drama sitcom contemporary with alien elements. Ok, so [...]

    5. Khanh (the meanie) on said:

      More high-school teen drama than the anticipated bad-ass alien sci-fi I was expecting.Ariane was created in a lab, with a combination of human and alien DNA. Her father is one of the scientists, and after a crisis of conscience, kidnaps and rescues Ariane where she was being kept as a lab rat. They lead a quiet existence, doing the blending-in thing quite well compared to some of the other books I've read (like the idiotic aliens in Lux, honestly). Ariane doesn't look like a normal human being, [...]

      Fafa's Book Corner (Wordpress)Fafa's Book Corner (Blogger) I had first heard about this book back in 2013. I had finished reading the authors other series The Ghost and the Goth, and I was pretty excited that she was writing a new series! Before the release date I went through some reviews. According to the one that I read it said that our main character Ariane was a love sick puppy. After that I lost interest. Then a few months back I came across the book series again. Deciding to give it a sho [...]

    7. Katy on said:

      Not exactly what I had been expecting, but I was sucked into the story - mainly because it kept me guessing from the beginning to end.So why four stars? Well, if you were looking something of the sci-fi/dystopian genres, this wasn't exactly that. Because the concept pretty much disappeared for a good chunk of this book. Actually, let me back up…My first thought after reading the prologue was, "Oh crap, this sounds a lot like Beta." A non-human was created to replace a dead girl. But then I rea [...]

    8. Norah Una Sumner on said:

      “That was, in fact, my life. A whole series of reasonable lies.” Once in a while,I like the synopsis of a certain book with bad ratings,so I say "Fuck it" and read the book anyway.Sometimes it turns out that the reviews were right,but sometimes,like this time,it turns out that the book is actually really good and interesting.I really enjoyed reading this.I loved both point of views,which doesn't happen so often,and I really liked our two main characters.The story is so interesting,full of ne [...]

      BookNook — Young Adult book reviews4.5 StarsThe Rules reads surprisingly like a contemporary book, and that's one of the things that made me love it so much. Although it does have sci-fi elements, they don't dominate the story at all. It's more about evil corporations, first loves, tender and hesitant romance, high school drama, and bullies, all with a small sci-fi twist.The story is told from alternating points of view: Ariane's and Zane's. I didn't expect to get a glimpse into both character [...]

    10. Abida's Book Adventures on said:

      Surprisingly I didn't give this book a 2 or 1 star, like I thought I would. I gave it a 3.5. It wasn't perfect or horrible. The book had great story line, but one thing that got on my nerves was the amount paragraphs and writing the author used to fill up the pages. Like I understand that detail and background information in a book is super important but that doesn't mean that we need pages fill of it. Another thing was the how slow the book went and, then at the very end the book suddenly every [...]

    11. Mitch on said:

      A lot of the time, reading a book is all expectations - and it goes both ways. In this case, I really liked The Rules, but probably not for the reasons you'd expect, so as a word of warning, I think anyone picking this up expecting a science fiction thriller will be sorely disappointed because it's actually mostly a high school revenge plot. That said, I recently wrote in another review that I'd pay good money to an author who can genuinely surprise me, and well, Stacey Kade surprised me. So bec [...]

    12. Gisbelle on said:

      This book exceeds my expectation. There is nothing I want to change about this book since everything is just perfect. One thing though, I don't know why the series is called Project Paper Doll.Both Zane and Adriane stole my heart. I loved Adriane's sense of humor and her inability to just stand by and watch when seeing someone being abused. She was cool like that. As for Zane, I LOVED him! I guess I enjoyed Zane's POV better than Andiane's, even both POVs were awesome in their own way.When I fir [...]

    13. Jessi (Novel Heartbeat) on said:

      I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. But I was pleasantly surprised! I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. First of all, it wasn’t as much about alien experimentation as much as it was a vengeance campaign against the high school mean girl. That’s what about 70% of this book consisted of. Not that that’s a bad thing – Kade’s writing style was fantastic and very engaging! Despite my aversion to high school drama stories, I found m [...]

      Мне очень нравится серия Стэйси Кейд «Призрак и гот», это одна из тех серий, где интересный сюжет и действительно классные герои. Именно поэтому я решила почитать книгу «Правила».К сожалению, данная серия меня не впечатлила. Она слишком типичная, полная штампов и плюс ко вс [...]

    15. Amber Argyle on said:

      Hunger Games meets The Host. Review posted on amberargyleThe Rules by Stacey Kade captured me so completely, so perfectly, that I responded in the only way possible: turn back to the beginning and start again.Readers read because they love it. There's a journey, an adventure waiting for us between the pages of a book. Simply put, some adventures are better then others. But for those of us who read a lot, it becomes harder and harder to find something truly great. Something that rises above avera [...]

      Escaping the GenTex Labs (GTX), home to the Paper Dolls project where Ariane Tucker was created as a half-human, half-alien hybrid- her only source of survival, with the help of her 'adopted' father, depends on blending in with the humans and following 5 simple rules. But after a cruel joke that gets under Ariane skin, she snaps and loses control and get the unwanted attention of Zane Bradshaw. Zane, the police chief's son and one of the more popular boys at school, starts to see Ariane in a dif [...]

      More of my reviews @ Reading 24x7Okay,I'll be honest. I had some major expectations from this book, and maybe that's why I didn't find it as awesome as I hoped I would. However, I loved the concept. The Roswell incident has always been something I've been curious and intrigued about, so imagine my surprise when this book turned out to be based on that only. That was one reason I got immediately attracted to this book.The concept was compelling and the way the story started off was awesome. I cou [...]

      3.5 stars(Source: I own a copy of this book.)17-year-old Ariane is not 100% human. Instead she’s a hybrid – part human, part alien, and she’s constantly hiding from the lab that she escaped from.Ariane lives by a set of rules that stop her from being discovered and taken back to the lab, but one girl pushes all her buttons – in totally the wrong way, and Ariane can’t help but lose control around Rachel and unleash her alien powers.Is a plan to get revenge on Rachel really a good idea?

    19. Becky on said:

      I started off not having a clue about this book. I didn't really know what in the world it would be about or what the "Paper Doll Project" was. All I knew was the rules printed on the back of the book jacket I will also confess to being a MAJOR cover snob and if I hadn't agreed to read this with some of my GoodReads friends, I never would have picked this book up - because I HATE the cover. But that's not the Author's fault and I am SO GLAD I did the "buddy read"!The book started off kind of bla [...]

    20. Jenni Arndt on said:

      I’ve never been a big fan of sci fi, I have to admit that up front. When I look back at movies that I have watched and liked in the genre it’s more so the ones that come across as predominantly horror more than sci fi. There’s something about other beings living out there somewhere that absolutely frightens me. Then when you add in the fact that they are possibly much more advanced than us and could be lurking in places we don’t know, yikes! What I am trying to say is that I am fascinate [...]

      This review and others are posted at Read, Rinse, Repeat.The Rules has pretty much everything this sci-fi fan could want. A human/extra-terrestrial hybrid? Check. The hybrid, named Ariane, was locked in a top-secret government laboratory and subjected to inhumane experiments? Check. Ariane breaks out and now must attempt to blend into society to avoid detection and capture? Check.Ariane's attempt at a normal life begins at home with the laboratory's security guard who helped her escape. He poses [...]

    22. Damaris (GoodChoiceReading) on said:

      So good!!! One thing I love the most about Stacey Kade’s writing is that she can create characters that seem very believable, and that readers can relate to in one way or another. I am a huge fan of her GHOST AND THE GOTH series because of this and she pulls it off again in The Rules. Ariane isn’t exactly human and she knows it. She’s been trying to live a normal life as a human for years. She has it all down pat and follows every rule that her father gives her. She’s been off the radar [...]

    23. Becca on said:

      Originally posted at OMFG!BooksWell, that was intense! I wasn't quite sure what to expect from The Rules. All I knew was that I loved the cover and the concept. I don't read many alien-y novels so I thought why not!?There were two main characters and we got to see both of their POVs; Ariane and Zane. Ariane is the alien/human hybrid in hiding from the government and Zane is just a human boy going about his life. Sort of. Ariane, though having been in the Outside as she calls it for years, is sti [...]

      За что я люблю Стейси Кейд, так это за абсолютно нормальных, адекватных героев. Во время прочтения этой книги у меня ни разу не возникла мысль "что за бред, почему подростки так себя ведут?". Это история о наполовину инопланетянке, которая оказалась вне лаборатории и в течени [...]

Even so, I put off reading the rest of the trilogy for the longest time.but not today. I'm going to finally finish this trilogy.2/17/17: Finished with reread. Afterthoughts: eve [...]

    26. Trisha on said:

      This one was okay - not amazing but not bad.I didn't think anything stood out. The love was a little close to instant love. Ariane didn't sell me on her uniqueness or her selflessness. She's fiery and fierce but only in ways that made her feel very squeaky clean and not necessarily added depth or personality to her.Rachel was way over the top and Zane.well, Zane was a little too good to be true. It was okay. I might keep going on the series.

      To see full review visit Howdy YAL!Aliens.It's the one PNR YA tropes I never get tired of. I think because there are so many ways you can go with it. Honestly, I'm usually not a hard core sci-fi fan for the most part. It's true I like watching the occasional movie about aliens taking over the world and that I like to read about aliens and watch Ancient Aliens on TV, butokay, I'm obsessed.But aliens in YA?Sort of mixed.Sure there's the Lux series which I liked (used to love up to the last install [...]

I've been really busy, so I don't have a lot of time to check .The Gist: Ariane, an experimental hybrid between human and alien genetic material, follows "The Rules," restrictions to keep her head down, at great personal cost, because if the lab she escaped from recaptures her, she'll be forced to use her powers to kill for the highest bidder.

      Пожалуй, не совру если скажу, что для меня Стейси Кейд быстро стала одним из любимых авторов этого года. Ее легкий и приятный стиль сразу увлекает, простые герои не раздражают,вызывают сопереживания, а милые любовные сцены вызывают улыбку и умиления. Итак. "Проект Бумажная К [...]
