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.

Eon  - Alison Goodman An incredible fantasy book! What an adventure!This book tackled on a lot of issues that are commonly talked about in our everyday lives: politics, greed, prejudices, and survival. I love how Goodman has created a world that, despite being solely made for the book itself, we could relate to with the problems we have in real life. I also like the Asian atmosphere of the setting and the descriptions of the places were so vivid that I wanted to experience seeing it in the flesh. Although, I will admit that there are terms in this book that I didn’t know and I found myself flipping a dictionary to find its meaning. Eon or Eona, the protagonist, is kind of annoying. There are times that she seems to be very smart and yet there are moments that she doesn’t have a clue on what to do when it’s obviously easy to be done. I guess there are valid conclusions to her ability, or at this instance, inability to comprehend the matter. She’s been through tough times so I guess I couldn’t blame her since she’s probably jaded. Most of the chapters may be a bit of a drag to others because it’s mostly focused on Eon’s life in the palace and learning her role as a Dragoneye, but I didn’t feel the boredom because each chapter gave me something new to look forward to. There are parts that seem to give you a piece of a puzzle that you’ll hope to get another with the next chapter to come, so I really enjoyed that Goodman didn’t leave me hanging on for so long just to find everything pouring out at one final chapter.I do wish to have seen a bit more romance to Eon’s life but overall I find this as a really exhilarating experience and I strongly recommend this book to fantasy-loving bookworms out there. May I also say that with how this book ended I’m really looking forward to the sequel!For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
