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.

Unremembered - Jessica Brody Unremembered’s premise showed a lot of promise of mystery and romance. With a protagonist who does not remember a single thing about her past and a boy who claims to be in love with her once, the warning of danger and the confusion of who she must trust and how will she get her memory back... seriously, it was leading me on to think it was going to be epic. Meh... not so much.I’ve seen this all before.Apparently I’ve been muttering that for the most part of reading Unremembered... The time travel thing and the on-the-run drama – I’ve seen them all happen in Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin. The only differences are: this is way shorter, a lot more romantic, and much easier explanation on how they did the whole time-travel situation. Before I started reading Unremembered, I allotted an entire page of my journal to write down my thoughts on this book as I read through it. Sadly, I didn’t get to write much. By the time I finished the book, I had only written down nearly half of the page I provided. So what does that tell me? It’s not as stimulating as I expected. Usually when I read a book, I write down every thought I get that I want to look back on once I start reviewing the book, but with Unremembered... There just wasn’t that much to think about.I’d like to think that I somehow enjoyed reading this book, but honestly, I just went through waiting for something exciting to happen but everything just came out boring... The characters do not stand out and some of them seemed to be laid out conveniently for our heroes when they need them. Oh, they just happen to be there? Seriously, who buys that? The only character that I have come to admire was Rio. He’s the only person I found interesting enough to let me grow as sense of emotional attachment with. I’m not sure if I can think any way to say this could have been better but, like I said, there isn’t much in this book to think about. It's a fast paced story... but nothing really extravagant.*Thank you, Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR), Macmillam and NetGalley for the copy of Unremembered.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
