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.

Sweet Evil

Sweet Evil - When Sweet Evil was released back in May 2012, it didn’t really catch my attention, even in spite of all the raving about it. I guess I felt that after reading the synopsis, it just wasn’t my kind of story. But then came all the craziness again once the cover of Sweet Peril surfaced around the blogosphere. So maybe it was a sign that I get to this book already? Why not?As soon as I grabbed a copy and posted a photo on Instagram, the lovely ladies who have read this book pushed me to start on it. Supposedly I was to meet a new book boyfriend by the name of Kaidan. So how was my experience with Sweet Evil you may ask? It was great! At first I was skeptical about the “good girl-bad boy” image going on because honestly, who hasn’t seen that before? I even have qualms about Kaidan’s personality. He’s every bit of the image of a guy that would less likely catch my attention. But something about the way he was created by Wendy Higgins that makes all the elements work for me, fictionally of course, that’ll never work in the real world. LOL.The whole guardian angels and demon dispute was really interesting for me. Especially the idea that demons have jobs in our world where they are assigned a specific sin to tempt and/or influence a person to do it. That was very original and fascinating. The most memorable part I found in this book was when Anna got reunited with her dad. It totally made me cry. I am a daddy’s girl (my dad and I are pretty close) after all so it was incredibly touching. My heart also broke for Kaidan when I saw him longing for the love from his father who has never deemed to show any affection towards him. Is it obvious how much I love my dad? Haha!The climax was a little bit of downer for me. Everything was getting pretty exciting and then *poof* – we’ll have to wait for the other books to see when some real epic action finally happens. I am happy though that this didn’t end with a happy ending. Heartless biatch, much? I don’t know, I guess I think there’s just too much to still go around before Anna and Kaidan deserve to be together. Sweet Evil is not entirely oozing with extravaganza but the simplicity and writing was gripping. Sometimes I find myself torn between liking a particular scene and feeling utterly uncomfortable about it; like, I know what Kaidan was doing (not saying which one, but most of everything he did with Anna) was all creepy and Anna giving in to whatever Kaidan-involved thing was slutty, but why the heck do I find them all sexy? What is wrong with me? But maybe that’s just the power Higgins brought into this book.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
