The Blair Book Project

Hello! I'm Janus. I am a 3D Graphics Artist by profession, and a proud Book Addict - i mean Enthusiast, and Blogger. I'm very much into Young Adult and Fantasy genre but I open myself to reading other genres from time to time. I run a blog launched as The Blair Book Project on Blogger, where I post entries such as my book reviews and other book related articles. I obviously got the name of this blog for the movie "The Blair Witch Project," why the name you may ask? I have no idea! I just thought it had a good ring to it. Ha! Ha! I post reviews twice a week and I regularly participate in book memes and features that readers and blogger all over the globe share their book interests (i.e. In My Malibox, Top Ten Tuesdays, etc). I have 230 GFC Followers. My blog has over 37,000 pageviews history and have roughly 200 page views per day. I have written over 267 reviews since my span of blogging. I am also an avid Instagram user, with over 350 followers, where I post pictures mostly of books I'm currently reading, books I got for review, galleys, purchased from bookstores, etc. (Statistics as of March 2013). My book reviews are not exactly "reviews" in a sense because I simply just type down what I feel about the book. What I write is solely my opinion and should not be taken as a definite basis of how the book is to be judged entirely. We all have different likes and dislikes so please do understand that although I'm very optimistic about the books I read, there will be negative comments towards those that I don't find suiting for my taste.

Prodigy (Legend Series #2)

Prodigy - Marie Lu I’ve been delaying myself from writing this review. Why? Well, every time I see, hear or think of Prodigy, my heart aches and breaks into a thousand pieces! Damn that ending!I have been hooked to the story of June and Day from page one of Legend, the first book from this series. I loved every minute of reading it. It was fun, fresh and exciting. My experience with Prodigy is quite similar, that is until Marie Lu crushed my heart and soul over that awful cliffhanger. Why must protagonists always suffer?! *Bawls*When I met June in book one, she was every bit the strong, soldierly girl that I look for in a true kick ass heroine, exactly the image of the Republic deems as its prodigy. I love how June didn’t stray off of this persona even after being on the run, and considered a wanted criminal. I love that June’s ever-observant self does not falter no matter the circumstances. It was cute! As for Day, well… as much as I am smitten with the dude, it’s kind of sad to see him struggle with his self-esteem when it comes to his and June’s differences in economic status. Ah, yes there’s no other spot-on test for commitment and a relationship than a problem bordering over your likes and dislikes, similarities and differences, and issues concerning money. It’s sad but I can’t deny that it happens in real life, which just makes June and Day’s relationship all the more believable.And as if that wasn’t enough, we have other parties trying to get involved. There’s the Patriots, which although I’ve come to appreciate at some moments, I wasn’t comfortable with how bloodthirsty they were over their mission. I don’t enjoy witnessing that kind of eagerness over killing someone. Except when I really, really hate the person. LOL. Speaking of hating a person – Tess, you’re in my list. You bitch! That’s another one of those things that keeps June and Day’s relationship complicated, along with the appearance of the new Elector. Tsk, tsk, tsk!I love how this book is paced in a very even way. It’s not too fast, and it’s not too slow either. And since there were a lot of action scenes, I’m a happy camper, right here, even though I wanted the throw the book after reading the ending. I obviously can’t get over that.Prodigy is a breathtaking follow up to Legend and book three, Champion is definitely a book to watch out for.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
