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.

Endurance: A HeroesandHeartbreakers.com Original

Endurance - Ann Aguirre If you’ve read Enclave, surely at some point you got stuck wondering, what ever happened to Thimble, Stone and the rest of the College people? Did they get slaughtered just like those from the Nassau enclave? How exactly did Deuce’s best friends feel about her getting exiled? Let’s get the other side of the story shall we?WARNING: Contains spoilers.There is unease amongst the enclave. Some feel that their leaders are being unjust, while some side with them and feel that their leaders are only doing what’s best for the enclave. When chaos finally breaks within, Stone is thrown into the combat, fighting for his life. But could a breeder fight like a hunter? Meanwhile Thimble, a simple builder, tries to be brave and takes care of the brats, trying to feed and comfort them amidst all the havoc. After the brutal battle, few are left to defend the enclave from the Freaks. College has fallen. Freaks feast on the dead. Thimble, Stone and Stone’s son miraculously escape. But without a hunter’s skills, how far can they go and how long will they survive?Endurance is a short story where readers get to see what happened to the enclave after Deuce and Fade were exiled. In Enclave, readers see the story in Deuce’s eyes while here in Endurance, readers are shifted between Thimble and Stone in third person view. It was sad to see College fall. It was heart-breaking to find the characters I’ve know from Enclave die for a cause that could’ve been solved in a more peaceful way if only both sides allowed it. And yet I felt a sense of pride over how Silk and the rest of what’s left of the hunters fought nobly until their last breath. I was really pleased to find another point of view over this series. Deuce is a great character, but it’s always nice to find something new. I was glad to get to know Thimble and Stone myself than from Deuce’s eyes, surprised to find that they feel deeply for each other more than the enclave allowed them to. It’s sweet and all but there are times that I feel the narration over their feelings seem a bit redundant. I mean, I get it, I just wish they wouldn’t keep saying it over and over again, just express it already!Endurance was a really enjoyable book for me because it showed me an even deeper side of Ann Aguirre’s Razorland world. Top Side isn’t the only vast place to discover. Down Below, there are still secrets yet to be exposed.
