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 Pirate's Wish

The Pirate's Wish - Cassandra Rose Clarke Ananna and Naji just couldn’t catch a break, can they? It seems the curse brought upon Ananna saving Naji’s life during the events of The Assassin’s Curse has just made things more complicated than it already was...In The Pirate’s Wish, we find our protagonists trapped on an island where no man dares to venture into. While waiting for help to arrive, Ananna and Naji are living off in a small shack not far from the wizard they visited recently who told them about the secrets to breaking the curse. As if Naji’s enemies from the Mists, and the Pirate Confederation on Ananna’s tail isn’t enough trouble for them, they come across a creature – a deadly, vicious, yet graceful manticore named Ongraygeeomryn (And no, I did not randomly press letters on my keyboard, nor did I just make that up, I swear that’s a name) to top it all off. And if that wasn’t too much to handle already, we have Ananna and Naji’s relationship to add up to all the complications involved to breaking this damn curse. And have I mentioned how infuriating the personalities of these two are? And yet, I couldn’t deny how much fun it was to watch them tick off one another – Wow! What is wrong with me? Haha!Oh, Naji, Naji, Naji. You should know by now that Ananna would never keep still even if you ask nicely. I mean, since when does she ever stay put? LOL. If I thought Ananna was aggravating in book one, she a little more unnerving here. She’s always been hot-headed but she wasn’t this tense before. Maybe it’s because of all the confusion going on in her head? I feel sorry for her though, even I couldn’t figure out if Naji’s feelings towards her are true or not. I can definitely understand the doubt building inside her. The shifting and build up of the romance seemed kind of off to me: first they’re fighting, then there’s some spark-ish love interest scene, then the next thing I see they’re making out – and maybe more! It’s kind of uncomfortable that they hadn’t bothered with talking about their feelings for each other, or maybe they have with the whole blood-bond thing? There is truly never a dull moment with these two. Whether it’s seeing them getting pissed at each other, trying to solve the puzzle to break the curse, or fighting for their lives, there’s always something to keep you on the edge of your seat. I honestly thought this was a trilogy though. And with the ending part, I kind of felt it wasn’t enough to give me the kind of closure I expected for any story. * Thank you Angry Robot, Strange Chemistry and NetGalley for the copy of The Pirate's Wish.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
