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.

Delirium  - Lauren Oliver NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!No! No! No!Sorry, I just had to get that out. ^_^I expected Delirium to be focused on a love story but I did not expect how much suspense it would contain. It felt like a modern-age love-tragedy tale of Romeo and Juliet. It was simply heartbreaking.The plot was very well executed. This new world that Lauren Oliver has created was vivid and ingenious, but scary and sad at the same time. It reminded me of a movie I once watched where Nicole Kidman starred in. I can’t quite remember the title of the movie (I suck at that!) but I do murkily remember how it goes. Apparently there’s this town where husbands turn their wives into these seemingly stoic and plain housewives who only care about the well being of their husbands and nothing else. The wives were formerly successful women turned into those because the husbands feel inferior towards their wives occupations; hence making them these smiling, cooing, boring, robot-like ladies.Anyway, back to my review, the life of the cureds felt zombie-like and I couldn’t blame anyone feeling the need to break free from it. God never took away any of His children’s freewill and yet here was a world that took that from you by taking away the feeling of love. Making you nothing more than a living lifeless thing. Living but not really LIVING at all.Moving on, I don’t have much to say about the characters. Each one is copiously established. They’re fitting to what they portray. I like Lena’s voice. I adored Hana. Alex was nice. Although, sometimes he feels too perfect a man. Too calm or something; I can’t quite make it out. When I reached the last 2 remaining chapters, I was holding my breath, saying and fretting: “Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!” *deep breath* “Oh My Gosh!” *pant* “Oh…My…Gosh! Oh my gosh!” *hands shaking book* “OH MY GOSH!” And the last 2 pages made me scream the words, or rather word, you see at the top of this review. With how Delirium ended, I’m eager to read the next book.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
