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.

Enclave (Razorland Series #1)

Enclave  - Ann Aguirre In the world of Enclave, Top Side, where cities used to stand tall and proud, is unsafe. The angry sun burns any human flesh in sight, and the air poisons the lungs. It is safer to stay Down Below, in the tunnels. It may be pitch black down there, reeking of cannibalistic Freaks, but better than dying within seconds Top Side – or so the College Enclave leaders say to Deuce and the other citizens. Deuce has always seen herself becoming a huntress. When the time finally arrived, she finds herself paired in hunting with Fade, the outsider amongst her people, and yet one of the best hunters of the enclave. When Deuce and Fade learn that the neighbouring enclave, Nassau, was destroyed by the Freaks, they try to warn their leaders, who in return, refuse to listen. Suddenly, Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, and forced to go Top Side, where they find themselves facing more danger, witnessing new discoveries, and hoping for a land they aren’t even sure exists... The marker saying that Enclave is “For fans of The Hunger Games,” made me want to pick up this book. I thought to myself, “well, how daring!” It’s kind of hard to live up to that kind of expectation. Many have tried, but not many rose up fulfilling and accomplished. Thank goodness, Enclave was amazing!Deuce’s world is like no other dystopian world I’ve experienced recently. Imagine people living in the subways were have at present, only trains no longer work, and nobody bothers ascending from these tunnels. Ann Aguirre’s world building skills is astounding, definitely deserve two thumbs up! And a standing slow clap. LOL.Deuce’s character is attention-grabbing. She’s strong, brave, and curious – even though that last part might get her in trouble. I love her, although sometimes she can be too confident for her own good. I’m glad she has Fade to look after her. Now speaking of Fade, he is, of course, a very interesting character. And no, before you say anything, I am not swooning over him – yet! Ha, ha! You see, he may be dreamy and all, but I kind of toned down over focusing on the characters here. I’m more transfixed over the adventure; the journey that these characters went through. The scenes were incredibly gripping that I barely had the time to think deeply of Fade, much less anyone else. So yeah, I truly praise that adventure; the characters’ discovery of what exactly goes Top Side, everything they have been through is incredible. And the action – Oh! Sweet, blood pumping action scenes! Thank you, Ann Aguirre! You have quenched my thirst of action in dystopian novels, really, much appreciated!!!As you can see, I really like this book, and I can’t wait to read Outpost. Since Enclave is a little short on the romance side, I’d be expecting more from Book II. Please don’t let me down.
