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.

Pure (Covenant Series #2)

Pure - Jennifer L. Armentrout Warning: Review contains spoilers. I couldn’t help it as of the moment; I need to express some things that would definitely give out some major scenes in Pure.Pure launches our protag, Alex, to a whole new adventure. She faces a different of challenge from what she stumbled upon in Half-Blood. While she had to deal with ending her daimon mother’s horrific condition in the first book, Alex must now face the consequences of the situation, she has to appear before the Council to give out her statement on what happened. Although it seems, the Minister of the Council has something else in mind...Wow! Did this book have so much excitement or what? A whole lot of events have occurred and we are yet to be left with closure to any of the things that happened in Half-Blood, the tension and mystery just keeps building up. I felt my heart leap and soar, as well as tumble and fall while reading this. At some point I even felt a little annoyed. There were a whole lot of emotions to go through.I’m used to seeing Alex all worked up and bratty, after all who is Alex without her smart-mouthed persona and inability to follow the rules? But to some extent I guess it went a little overboard. I understand that her kind has been given less rights and privilege than the Pures but I don’t get the kind of reaction she had over a curfew and a physical exam. Seriously, has she never gone through an annual medical check up? I know it’s a little awkward but nothing to get all feisty about. I’m even pissed she picked a fight with Aiden over that. It kind of sounded, well... lame. Sorry.Moving on, I’m kind of upset over the fact that Seth gets the upper hand here. I am after all team Aiden through and through, so seeing a side of Seth that is “likeable” makes me cringe. No way am I letting this arrogant dude get in the way of my Aiden’s happiness, I mean Alex’s Aiden that is. What? Is it that bad I want him myself? LOL.I’m still grieving over that one of Grandma Piperi’s visions came true. *sighs heavily* When you’re a protagonist’s best friend, not only do you usually get stuck in the “friend zone” but you also get the impending doom scenario where you die, just so readers can see the protag experience an emotional turmoil. Authors can be cruel. Hahaha!I really love the action scene as a finale. Wooh! That just blew me away. And boy do I want to see Telly die so bad. JLArmentrout is transforming me into one morbid individual. I’ve experienced this with her other book, Opal from the Lux series. Why are you doing this to me, Ms. Armentrout?What I thought was a simple story from Half-Blood grows into an even more interesting plot with Pure and I’m really excited to get to the rest of the books from this series.
