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.

Falling Kingdoms

Falling Kingdoms  - Morgan Rhodes I have two major weaknesses that I never got to overcome – my stupid sense of direction, and my inability to remember names. Falling Kingdoms has tested me on both. I have never really been good with remembering names ever, so imagine my struggle to keep up with all the characters. Thank goodness there was a list of them up front. But it was kind of embarrassing to see myself going back and forth whenever I needed to recall who this character was in the first place. As for my sense of direction, well there was a map up front as well but wow, was it hard to picture which was where... I’m telling you, it was embarrassing - complete and utter shame! Falling Kingdoms was a rather challenging book to read for me because [aside from the above mentioned], the multiple points-of-view were a lot to take in. It was harder to get to know the characters since, well; there was a lot to go around. Some of them were a bit bewildering, and yet some were quite predictable. It was hard for me to find a character that I’d root for. And the one time I actually find a pleasant character... he dies! Crap! I was a little impatient about waiting for the action scenes – how long before all hell breaks loose?! And yet, when it finally did, it wasn’t as much as I expected and yearned for. What I enjoyed most about this book were the background stories, the myths and legends that were spurred here and there. These bits and pieces of their history was what kept me reading even though I came to the point that it felt like this wasn’t going anywhere anymore.Falling Kingdoms had a promising story. It was nice and interesting, but it just took too long for anything to unravel, some were still even left unanswered until the end, obviously to be continued in book two, Rebel Spring.
