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.

Shattered Dark, The (Shadow Reader Novel)

The Shattered Dark - Sandy Williams Ms. Sandy Williams! How. Dare. You?! You... you... I can’t even... *sighs heavily* Okay, okay. I’m keeping my cool. *inhales deeply*....... *exhale*... Nope, not working – WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT?!Alright, let me back up a little on this. I oh so loved The Shadow Reader that I just had to read The Shattered Dark immediately – as in right after I finished the last page of the first book. It was a good thing I purchase these two books at the same time. Else I would have had to painstakingly wait for my copy of the second book, and we all know that’s just torture. Anyway, I was very enthusiastic about stepping into McKenzie’s world once more. Especially now that she’s considered trying out a relationship with Aren. I expected things to get really interesting. Not that The Shadow Reader wasn’t as interesting mind you, but I really expected this book to take this series to another level.The Shattered Dark was a mess. Nope, not in a bad way but rather a mess with all the war, emotions and all things crazy in between happening to McKenzie’s life. Ah, our poor little protagonist. Not only is she dealing with a complicated relationship, which by the way is rather cute that she and Aren may be from different worlds but they go about with problems just as any typical relationships go through; but she’s also dealing with the war between the former Rebels and the former Fae King’s men; add in the predicament that McKenzie’s best friend, Paige has been kidnapped by the opposing fae. As if that’s not enough, our lovely author, Ms. Williams here decides that McKenzie just had to suffer a little bit more. Pardon me, but I will not mention what this was about. I swear I have mixed feeling about this matter, I feel distraught over what befell McKenzie, Aren and Kyol. Seriously, that is just sick! Okay, I may be a bit over reacting; it’s just that I love them all that it pains me to see them go through that.And yet, I have to admit that’s one sneaky, awesome trick. As much as it pisses me off that Kyol did what he had to do, I can’t get myself to be angry at him, same as I can’t begrudge Aren for his decision in the end either. The thing I like so much about this series is that there’s always so much going on in every chapter. Although, this was a little slower compared to its predecessor. Still, I’m eagerly anticipating The Sharpest Blade. For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
