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.

Things I Can't Forget

Things I Can't Forget - Miranda Kenneally Things I Can’t Forget introduces readers to Kate. She has taken a summer job at Cumberland Creek as a counselor for the art activities of the camp, trying to overcome the guilty feeling that has been haunting her after helping her best friend Emily do something that she finds immoral. This summer, she experiences a life she’d unlikely choose herself to be into… I’m not much of an outdoorsy person so I don’t know what going to camp feels like, but Kate’s days in camp made me feel like it could be kind of fun! It makes me wish I tried it out when I was a kid.I had a few presumptions about this book. I have read Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker, so I assumed that since I got a glimpse of Jordan in Stealing Parker, I’d get a peek at Parker’s life now too with Things I Can’t Forget. Thankfully, I did and I was happy about that. One thing I didn’t expect was to see Jordan make an appearance too – Yay! Spoiler: Another thing I thought would happen was, since the first two books mentioned a guy’s name in the synopsis written at the back of the book, the protagonist would end up with some other guy in the book (he who was not named). I thought it was some kind of pattern. I was wrong. Hahaha! Kate is one of those girls who other people would look at and find self-righteous. Unlike the previous protagonists from Miranda Kenneally’s books, Jordan and Parker, Kate is a prig. She’s always thinking if her actions would cause her to sin or not. So it was a little difficult to like her. But I do understand why she feels that way. Her church and the society she has been accustomed to have really influenced her life deeply and I can’t blame her for uncertainties in life. I’m glad that her summer job gave her the chance to view things in other people’s perspective, whether about faith, spirituality, or simply living.I have to admit that I’ve been a little skeptical about writing a review for Things I Can’t Forget. Religious beliefs are topics that I believe to be too personal and would rather not be talked about in public. This is really a sensitive topic to discuss. But I’ve always believed that there is no perfect religion. I’ve always thought that it’s not important which church you go to, but what matters the most is your faith and devotion to God.
