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.

Revived (Forgotten)

Revived - Cat Patrick I never really know what to expect in a book when Cat Patrick is involved. The synopsis of Revived is simple enough that I really never thought it to get as deeply as it went through.Daisy is a part of a secret organization that has developed a drug called Revive that brings people back to life. Daisy has died 5 times already. Suffice to say, she is a test subject of the drug. Seeming to be used to having the drug around every time she dies, she never really thought of death as finality. That is until she moves to a new town with a new identity, and meets two of the most important people she could ever have in her life, Audrey her new best friend, and Matt, Audrey’s brother and becomes Daisy’s boyfriend. Daisy comes to realize that dying at this point is not an option; she doesn’t want to start over again and lose what she has now.One profound subject in Cat Patrick’s books is the love story, and with Revived, the romance is just as sweet and emotional. I love Matt and Daisy relationship; they came out as just typical love struck teenagers but then turned into having such a strong and inseparable bond. I was touched as seeing them hold on and support each other through the distressing moments in their lives. At first I only thought of this book as just a love story, surprisingly it was more than that. Daisy not only finds love in this new life, but she also finds a great friend (Audrey), which brings this story into a whole other dilemma. It makes Daisy question things in her life that she never thought of before. What good is a drug that can bring people back to death if it can only work on people who experienced quick death but not those who had suffered in illness before dying? Don’t those people deserve the chance just as much or maybe more considering their condition? I admire how this character-driven book went to the effort of letting Daisy experience a rather realistic development in her personality. I love the idea that she was created in a way that anyone can easily relate to. Revived is a heart-warming story of love, life and loss. A simple tale that makes you realize the value of the people who are a part of your lives. It makes you thankful for the life that you have been gifted. Most of all it makes one think a lot that, unlike Daisy, we’ve only got one chance at life, so make it count. :)For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
