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.

Once (Eve Trilogy)

Once  - Anna Carey In the events that follow Eve, the first book of the series: Eve has been living in Califia, a sanctuary for women who chose to live outside the rules imposed by the King of the New America. Since men are not allowed within Califia, Eve had to leave Caleb behind to enter in order to avoid being captured by the King’s men. But when word got to her that Caleb is in trouble, Eve is determined to help him out, only to find out that this was a trap. Suddenly, Eve finds herself in the last place she expected to be. The one place she has been fighting off to be held in, the City of Sand; the king’s very home. What shocks her is finding out the real reason behind the King’s determination to locate her and what role she must play in the rebirth of the country. And when she finally sees Caleb, a wanted criminal within the city walls, she would do anything to be with him once and for all...What started out as a simple love story with a mix of dystopia from Eve, developed into a deeper kind of story through Once. I was surprised about who Eve really was to the King. Although that makes better sense to me now over why the King was so obsessed in finding her, since he hadn’t even met her in the first place. I thought Eve’s identity would finally give her the upper hand. Turns out she’s just as powerless as before. I just wish she stood up from the King and gave a valuable argument. Mostly it felt like she didn’t push at all and only got in more than a word or two every time they had a conversation. I was happy to see that Eve and Caleb found each other, and that Eve was doing the best she could to meet him despite the curfews, guards, and all the hindrances surrounding her. Although, I don’t get why she bothers to disguise herself when she’s just as recognizable either way? I’ve seen many times of her being identified by a number of people while she was in disguise. That seemed pretty useless. Anyway, I wish I was given the chance to get to know the villain in this book. I know they said that the King was a ruthless person but I never really saw anything beyond ordering Eve around and being a public figure, and the ever so slightly embellished be-killed-by-the-soldiers/guards-when-you-disobey-the-king. But I didn’t see much of a character that would justify whether I would hate him or not. This book is far more eventful than the first one, but it still looks like there’s a long way to go before Anna Carey concludes everything at hand. I hope the last book would truly give out the answers to all the things that have been occurring.
