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.

Legend - I came across Legend in one of my favorite bookstores to visit. The copy was sitting on the shelf all by itself and since I’ve had this book plotted on my TBR far long before its release, I grabbed it off the shelf before anyone else did. Mine! Also, one of the staffs there that I befriended, informed me that their copies of Legend just came the morning before the day I was there. Lucky me to get the last of the new release batch! Yeah!!!Okay, way off topic. So yes, review.I LOVE IT! That’s all for my review…Kidding! Alright I’m going to stop fooling around now. Sorry. LOL.I really do love this book. Legend is one of the reasons why I’m growing to love dystopian novels more and more. A part of the summary written on the hardcover sleeve says, “Full of nonstop action, suspense and romance…” It truly lives up to the description, maybe even surpasses it.I’ve encountered alternating point-of-views before but never have I truly loved and looked forward to each of the shifts as much as I have with Legend. Both Day and June’s perspectives were interesting and very entertaining. They’re both broken but strong-willed, characters any person can easily relate to and empathize with. I also like that the story did not revolve around love interests but gave just enough affection and emotion to satisfy a romance-junkie’s desire.The plot and pacing was truly astonishing, no boring parts and the sequence of events was equally delivered in an entertaining and smooth flow.When the truth was uncovered, I knew there was something manipulating about the government but I was caught off guard with some of the revelations. The unexpectedness just made me devour this book.Of course, seems like a book is not part a series if it ends without a cliffhanger so Legend is not short of that. I also feel that there’s a lot more that I don’t know about the government and details that will seem to be exposed over the next books of this series so I am totally looking forward to them!
