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.

“What brought you out here Aria?” he asked. 
She looked up, right into his eyes. “I needed to find you.” 
“I know,” he said. “The second I left you, I felt the same way.” 

There are only a few couples that can make me swoon so much, even with just the tiniest details, as Perry and Aria. I’ve read Brooke’s novella beforehand and it got me really excited to read about Perry and Aria once again. And I must say I am so glad they did not fail me. Err… with regards to their relationship, that is.

I have no qualms over this lovely couple’s connection. The kind of love they have for each other is so gushy and sweet and all things colorful (I know it sounds like I’m describing Sugarland with lots of rainbows all around, but it is how it is). I love the moments that Perry and Aria had, even the times where my dear, sweet Perry was in pain. 

What I do feel a little disappointed with, as my reading buddy, Maria @ Reading is the Ultimate Aphrodisiac has brought up in her review, is the anti-climactic events that befell our villains. I mean, come on! Perry had suffered so much in this book, not to mention all the heartaches he felt in the other books. And yet villains get sudden, almost-instant death? Hey! They put our heroes through hell and all, dammit! Seriously, Ms. Rossi, which side are you on anyway?

Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky trilogy has the kind of world-building that would garner uncertainty in the mind of any reader. No matter how much of a veteran reader you think you’ve already become, this world was overwhelming, and not exactly an easy environment you can get settled into. This is probably a kind of breaking point for this series. I’m glad I stuck through with first book because not only did I adore it in the end, I came to love book two even more, and now I got to witness a sweet ending for my two favorite characters. I can’t say that I absolutely loved this book, but I can’t argue that this finale had given me closure.
