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.

Unravel Me

Unravel Me - Well... that was one intense book!I honestly don’t know what to make of Unravel Me. I loved it and hated all at the same time. I love Adam from Shatter Me and I’m solidly rooting for him but I hated seeing him all broken and confused here. I feel like he took a step back from the strong, favourable character that he was before. It’s sad.I loved seeing a different side of Warner; it’s a little uncomfortable for me to think that it makes me see him worthy of Juliette. As much as I hate to admit it, but getting to know this side of Warner made me understand why he too has just as much fan-girls as Adam. He’s still creepy and psychotic though, but still... Sheesh! This love triangle is probably the most intense part of this book. It’s a little exhausting even. I wish Juliette would make up her mind sooner, but I understand that given all that she’s been through, she is bound to be struggling on her decision.See, that’s another thing I find troubling here - Juliette was constantly in hot water. She lost all the confidence she’s come to develop during the end of Shatter Me. She’s back to feeling sorry for herself and at some point it got a little annoying. And yet there are times that I can’t help but empathize with her. Then I got to see her voice this out: “What I really want to say is who the hell do you think you are to tell me that it's awesome to be able to kill a living thing, that it's interesting to be able to ensnare another soul, that it's fair to choose a victim simply because I'm capable of killing without a gun..” And that just made me admire her. What I love most about this book is Kenji. His character just got even more awesome than he already was in the first book. He’s funny and hot. And he just makes everything all the more exciting! Good ol’ honest to goodness, Kenji had become one of the foundations for Juliette to snap out of her moping around and self loathing.As for the infamous Chapter 62... thank goodness it’s not as bad as I thought it would be. Close. But not so. *Whew* Ha! Ha!There are a lot of shocking revelations in Unravel Me that never really crossed my mind, so I treasured and cursed the idea all at the same time. Wow, the craziness of all this is catching up on me! Now if you think Warner was bad... *scoffs* wait till you meet Commander in Chief Anderson. The ending feels a little anticlimactic though. Maybe it’s because I already expected Warner’s decision. I’m also still absorbing the idea of what Adam and Warner are truly capable of and I’m looking forward to seeing them make use of what they have.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
