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.

Angelfall (Penryn and the End of Days Series #1)

Angelfall  - Susan Ee *Sigh* Where do I even begin?I’ve been rather picky when it comes to books about angels nowadays, unlike when I was a newbie over these kinds of stories; I gobbled them up once I hear about them. If you’ve been in the loop of the books in this genre, sometimes the details seem to blur into one another and turn out just the same as always. I guess that’s probably why I only picked up Angelfall just recently. I thought it was just another one of those forbidden love stories. And if my bookish buddy, Maria hadn’t pushed me to read this I would have read it even later. Heck I even complained to her that the font of the texts was too small, and I feared it might turn out to be a much longer read. When I finally started reading Angelfall I wanted to slap myself for all the things I said beforehand!The moment I was greeted with an epic action scene from the beginning, I knew I was going to have the time of my life reading Angelfall. Oh yeah! This was terrific!Do not be fooled by that simple synopsis that Penryn and Raffe, our protagonists, are just in for a sure-fire, struggling journey to wherever. There’s more to it than that. While other books go for the Nephilim-are-heroes kind of tale, here you find them dangerous, gruesome and downright bad monstrous creatures. And if you think guardian angels are there to keep you safe, think again. In this book, they are your worst nightmare. Not to mention that if politicians in our world are blatantly ruthless and power hungry, wait until you see how angel politics go. Now is that unique or what? I don’t know if I’m just starving for something new on the table, or that my sense of entertainment has just evolved from somewhat dark to weird, creepy, and utterly disturbing. Well, let’s say it’s the former just so I don’t scare you away. I love how Ms. Ee’s execution of a rather twisted world that even though I had found scenes alarming, I find myself seeing reason and understanding the logic behind what was created. Like the scene where Penryn accepted the kind of behaviour her mom had regarding a dead body at this building; she stately claimed the “I am crazier than you” battle to be sensible to me. Wow. I don’t know what is wrong with me. Haha!Angelfall truly has the perfect blend of action, adventure, mystery and the twist of a romance. The pace of the book is just as well laid out smoothly, making each chapter worth anticipating. This was an incredibly breathtaking story, although a dark and grotesque one, and is probably the best angel book I’ve read.
