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.

Under the Never Sky

Under the Never Sky  - Veronica Rossi Under the Never Sky introduces readers to Aria, a Dweller living comfortably and safely in the Reverie, an enclosed city where every citizen gets to enjoy the virtual environments called the Realms. Like everyone else, she has a Smarteye that she uses to access the Realms. We are also introduced to Peregrine, or Perry for short, an Outsider with exceptional abilities. But for some reason he seems to be an outcast even in his own tribe. Fate bands them together to embark on a journey that challenges them in a way they have yet encountered. But that’s not the only thing that fate seems to have in mind... I loved the way Aria’s character developed in this book. She wasn’t really an attention grabber at first but as she travelled through their world with Perry, I saw a lot of changes in her. I even found myself rooting and cheering her on during her dire moments. Now moving to Perry... I must say that I have developed a little crush on Peregrine. He’s not the typical kind of hero I used to see, and I find some of his actions a bit annoying sometimes, but the roguish side of him just grew on me. It was adorable. I was completely surprised to find myself reading a love story that actually underwent a slow-building kind of relationship. A good kind of surprise, that is. I got so used to the instant attraction between characters, is all. So when I see a romance that does go through an actual development [in books], I had a little standing ovation commencing on my head. LOL. Under the Never Sky is the kind of book that “grows” on the reader; to me at least, that’s how it felt. I wasn’t that thrilled over the first few chapters, mostly they were just confusing. What is the Aether and why is it there? There wasn’t any scientific explanation about it. Why was Perry so determined to be Blood Lord? Is there some kind of pull to it or something that tethers a worthy person of the title to want him to claim it so badly? How does the Smarteye actually look like? I don’t see Aria wearing it on the cover. However, even though my mind is booming with questions, and even though some aren’t answered in the book, I found myself not being bothered by it that much. Once you get the hang of the idea that the world is as it is (Awesome world building by the way, even with the lack of explanation), and as the story picks up its pace, you get to savour each moment. A very good book!For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
