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.

The Hunt - Stacey Kade

“I tried to warn you... You aren’t meant for life outside.” 

The Rules, the first book from the Project Paper Doll series, was more of a paranormal romance story. While The Hunt continues on to where the first book left off, it also opens readers to the sci-fi element that this story has not tackled on before. And wow! Was it an intense sequel? Although I can’t say it surpassed its predecessor.

Although Ariane and Zane’s relationship started off as a high school plot for revenge, it became clear that these two were definitely meant to be together. I love them both for being so dedicated to each other. But there comes a time in every couple’s lives that they have to face issues, and Ariane and Zane are no exception. Truthfully, they’d be the ones first in line given the current state they are in. Oftentimes, I encountered them both voicing out a lot of insecurity over their differences. It was a little disappointing to see them fall hard over the circumstances they faced here in book two. 

The Hunt seemed to overcompensate with the narratives of the protagonists’ thoughts and feelings. But even with that much descriptive view, this book didn’t feel as lengthy and dragging as I thought it would be. It remained a constant page-turner. I can’t say it was a thought provoking book though, in spite of all the scientific theories and experimentations being tossed around, not to mention the new characters introduced herewith in, it didn’t give me the urge to take things in consideration on a deeper level. 

Well, that all changed on the final chapter. Man that blows! I need book three! 

*Thank you, Disney-Hyperion and NetGalley for allowing me to view The Hunt.
