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.

Tomorrow Land

Tomorrow Land - Mari Mancusi Who would have thought a zombie book could turn out to be cute? I certainly didn’t. That is, until I’ve read Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi.I’ll give you a brief overview of the book: Peyton and Chris are living in 2030 where technology is literally used in people’s everyday lives. Like, for example, there are no more good old-fashioned basketball games, players need only to log in to the virtual world and let their minds do all the playing while they sit back and relax in their homes. It’s not hard to imagine a future like so, given how vast technology is developing. Anyway, Peyton doesn’t see Chris for anything but a stalker and she doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. Then the apocalypse came and left their world with zombies wiping out the rest of the world’s population. All the survivors, who have earlier went into hiding before the unfortunate event, are struggling to keep themselves alive from hunger and diseases, and not to mention trying not to get bitten and killed by zombies.Peyton and Chris are few of the survivors. They find themselves crossing paths after a very intriguing event in the past that left Chris hurt and dejected by Peyton while Peyton now longs to be with Chris. Fate doesn’t seem to be on their side...Tomorrow Land shifts between the point of view of Peyton and Chris/Chase, and each chapter interchanges from past to present. I love the trip back and forth and even though there were hints her e and there about what happened between Peyton and Chris before the apocalypse, you still get that element of surprise and the surge of empathic feeling towards these two love birds. I love the relationship they have. It’s the normal kind [in spite of the circumstances] that makes me feel the “love” that’s truly there. It’s really cute! I love the actions scenes and the fact that Peyton is no damsel-in-distress needing Chase to be there to protect her. In fact she can handle herself pretty well, if she wasn’t running out of time to get to where she needs to be. Speaking of the place where she’s going to, the Disneyland bit made me chuckle every time it was mentioned, it’s a little out of place considering the scenario but I’ll bite since I like the story.I relished every page of this book; the ending was a little bit of a downer though. I expected one last fight-to-the-death since the place was practically crawling with zombies and the way it came out uneventful, except for the revelation of Peyton’s purpose, was a bit disappointing. But I guess this was really more of a love story in the end anyway, so I’m just glad these two got their happily ever after.*Thank you, NLA Digital and Netgalley for the copy of Tomorrow Land.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com/
