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 Queen's Army: A Tor.Com Original

The Queen's Army - Marissa Meyer I didn’t really think much of The Queen’s Army when I first read it. I thought it didn’t really make that much sense in the first place and I wondered, considering how far it strayed from the actual story of Cinder, was this even necessary?When I finally read Scarlet, book two of the Lunar Chronicles. *sigh* that was the only time I came to realize the relevance of The Queen’s Army to the entirety of this series.The Queen’s Army is a very short story told in the eyes of Ze’ev. A young boy taken in to serve the Lunar Queen. He has been chosen, therefore he must oblige. Once Ze’ev steps into this world, he undergoes changes that are deemed necessary to improve his skills as a soldier, and is drilled to do what his master bids. Ze’ev is special. A soldier the queen sees fit to serve her and her purpose, the one she exactly needs to execute all her plans and once and for all be victorious...Ze’ev!!! *fans self*Even without having read Scarlet yet, I had my speculation that Ze’ev seemed like the kind of character that would play a strong part in all that has been going on with the Lunar Queen’s hunger for war and invasion.In my opinion, I think it is best that you read The Queen’s Army before diving into Scarlet. Otherwise, it might feel a little irrelevant to have this short story. It may be a bit vague and at some point you might question its significance to Cinder’s life... but I guarantee – you’ll see it once you read Scarlet.
