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.

Eve (Eve Trilogy)

Eve - Anna Carey Eve has caught me by surprise. I did not expect to like this book.When I first heard of Eve, there were a lot of speculations about it; lots of mixed reviews so I really didn’t know how to perceive Eve.What I like about this book is how straightforward the approach is. The author, Anna Carey, tells the story, it was definitely direct to the point. No detours and side stories that are not deemed relevant to the characters’ journey.I also commend Carey’s way of creating a post-apocalyptic world that was very realistic that you could actually see the possibility of it to happen in our future… well way, way ahead in the future that is. I do wish the places were more described and visualized. I just felt that it lacked on that part.There’s something that bothered me with Eve’s character though, don’t get me wrong, I like Eve. She’s brilliant in school but naïve about the world and the opposite sex. I just don’t get how easily she can adapt in any given situation. Get this, the only life she’s ever lived since her mom died was in a school that provided her with everything and when she’s escaped into the wild, she struggled for survival a little but then a few pages later she’s capable of surviving so fast and adapts to any environment. It’s just kind of hard to believe I guess.Still, I’m really looking forward to the next installment. The ending of this book just made me want to read the next book and see how Eve and Caleb’s relationship would turn out to be.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
