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.

Half-Blood (Covenant Series #1)

Half-Blood - Jennifer L. Armentrout I’ve prolonged reading Half-Blood for quite some time now. I think I did so because the moment I got a copy of this, I was having a bit of a fantasy-genre overload. That time, I’ve been reading YA Fantasy books back to back and I kind of got weary about them that nothing seemed surprising anymore. So I thought I’d set this aside for a better time in the future. And I think I read it at just the right moment, because I enjoyed this book so much that I immediately ordered the next two books in the series online. I relished every minute of reading Half-Blood; I finished it in just about less than 6 hours. There are still a few interruptions in between reading such as texting, bathroom breaks, snack time, etc. Plus, I had to sleep and go to work the following day so, 3 hours before bedtime then the remaining was from the next day after work. Anyway, it was really gripping that I just had to read on, and it pained me to put it down to do other things.I love Alex’s smart mouth. She’s a little (make that a LOT) hot-headed, and her temper always gets her into trouble, but I still love her either way. There’s just something about witty characters, although they can be annoying sometimes, that makes me adore them. So sue me! As for Aiden, well he’s kind of the typical leading man/hero. But if you would ask me who I’d choose between Aiden and Seth, I’d go with Aiden. I don’t know, but there is something off about Seth, I just can’t figure it out yet. I still like him though, but I have a bad feeling about him, I have yet to see what his role is in all this with the coming books.I’ve read several reviews about this book saying that it was a rip-off of Vampire Diaries, but since I haven’t read that book (I don’t think I ever would, I’m a little fed up with Vampire books so...) it didn’t bother me. Half-Blood is a fast paced, witty book that any mythology-fan might come to enjoy. Although I have to admit, it’s not a very original story. It has those standard rudiments incorporated in a typical YA novel: female heroine, forbidden love, a love triangle, and an otherworldly dilemma – nothing special, BUT IT WORKS. Only the brightest authors can actually pull off basic elements and still come out strong and stand out from all the other ones out there. Is that the power of Jennifer L. Armentrout? So you might have guessed that I will be watching out for the next books. For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
