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.

Wings (Laurel Series #1)

Wings  - Aprilynne Pike Yes, this review has spoilers.I didn’t know what I would be expecting from Wings when I started it. Mostly I thought it would involve faeries. That’s about as much as I gave it any thought. True enough, it was about faeries... but there’s a very creative twist to it. We’ve always believed that these supernatural beings are living creatures much like humans only immortal and magical. But have you ever thought of the fare folk to be plants? Well, seeing how the author created a new way to look at these creatures... I have to say I was impressed! The characters are okay. I don’t find anything extravagant about them, except for Laurel’s lifestyle, and the mystery behind Tamani’s obsession with her. Honestly, at first I thought it was weird, but finding out the history behind his motives, I can definitely understand it now. I’m sorry I was judgemental, but you gotta admit it was a little peculiar.I’ve seen so many others who have read this book liking Tamani, so is it wrong that I like David more for Laurel than him? Although I’m not sure I’ll stick to that over the next books – we’ll just have to wait and see. But I do have to point out that whoever she ends up with, it’s no excuse to see Laurel kissing two guys behind each other’s backs. No matter how hot you are girl, that is wrong.The story itself was pretty simple. Like I said, I didn’t expect much from it so I was surprised about seeing some action scenes here. I like a good action scene, so –Yay! I still have to admit that since I’m so used to the dark kind of fey stories, this one seemed a bit tamed and petty, even considering the trolls and what Tamani had to do to save Laurel and everything. The verdict: I like it. Simple and creative, added with a hint of science and logic. It was pretty nice.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
