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.

Boundless - Cynthia Hand Just so you know, I do not read book reviews not until I read the book myself. Even though reviewers pointed out that they don’t give out spoilers, I still stay away. I don’t want to be influenced in any way over what I’ll feel about the book before I even begin. It’s also fun to discover that, when I finally read the reviews, I find common presumptions and opinions, or varying likes and dislikes with fellow readers. From the moment reviews of Boundless blasted the blogosphere, I hated the Internet! I wanted to smite thee and smite thee more! My Goodreads friends have been gushing and all about what happened in Boundless. Since I haven’t read it then, the temptation to find out what they were talking about was killing me. Oh, the torture! Finally, the day arrived that I managed to snag a copy from one of my favorite bookstores. I did a thousand cartwheels in my head for being incredibly happy about it. In fact, the moment my hands held Boundless, I texted Maria @ Bookchilla to let her know – and the buddy reading began! I was barely into the story yet but I’ve already felt strongly annoyed with Angela. I even wanted her out of the picture because I really couldn’t stand her. She was incredibly infuriating. To think I already started disliking her in the novella, Radiant, but her attitude her made me feel much worse. I was kind of hoping to see a mellow dramatic reunion between Tucker and Clara after what happened in Hallowed. But instead, I got a huge dose of Christian in majority of the time I spent reading this book. At first I was pissed off. Then over time, I kind of understood why it was set that way. Even though I am all for Tucker to be with Clara, I have to admit that Christian did prove himself truly worthy of Clara. I felt sorry for him over the fact that Clara’s still clinging to the love she feels for Tucker. Alas, my dear Christian, it is not enough to sway me to your side. My heart and loyalty belongs to Tucker just the same, sorry. Haha!I am rather fascinated over the twist and involvement of Samjeeza in all of this. Wow! Truly there is good and bad in everyone… even with angels. I was also surprised over how Clara’s glory can be used vastly, in many forms and in different ways. How awesome is that glory sword, huh?Only Cynthia Hand, and probably just a handful of other authors, can make me sit down and savor each page of a YA Paranormal Romance book. After all, I don’t like sitting still and being kept waiting. But the magic of this book was something I appreciated. As expected, I cried… like buckets of tears. For a moment there I thought I was going to die! Damn that climax! I felt like my heart was being shredded to pieces. Heck, my boyfriend [who was surfing the net a few feet away from me] was shocked about my little outburst. Okay, so maybe it wasn’t exactly little… I did kind of scream like I was in pain, and I had black lines dripping down my face because my tears kept ruining and smudging my mascara. What? I can’t help it. I was having an emotional breakdown. Even though I know this is the ending. I feel like there’s more to be told. Then again, maybe I just don’t want this to end. I always feel that way when a good series reaches its finale. For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
