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.

Opal (Lux Novel)

Opal - Jennifer L. Armentrout Katy and Daemon are back, better than ever, for another blazing adventure. Now hold your horses, this is not just about Daemon... – oh who am I kidding it’s all about DAEMON! *squeals uncontrollably* Okay, okay, I’ll calm down now. Sorry. As I was saying, Opal, the third book from the Lux series gives readers a new insight on Katy and Daemon’s relationship. While Obsidian and Onyx went off with these two love birds having the constant love-hate relationship, and the ever brooding push-and-pull, hiding feelings and do-not-associate-with-humans/aliens interactions; Opal gives readers exactly what they were finally waiting for, the ever blooming, you-and-me-against-the-world, sweet moments of Katy and Daemon. Can you say HOT?!Opal is probably my most favorite among the three (for now) books. I guess I was tired of seeing Katy and Daemon fight off their feelings for each other, it was a relief to see them go into the mushy couple phase. Of course, there’s no lack of the witty, snarky, obnoxious yet sexy Daemon that we all know, but I love that I got to see an even more sensitive side of him. Boy, can this guy make a girl’s knees wobble (I hope that didn’t sound bad, I meant that to be sweet thing).Aside from all the sweet Daemon-Katy moments, I relished the hilarious scenes here and there that came up while reading through this book: the zombie movie scene between Daemon, Katy and Dawson; meeting a very surprising rival for Daemon (the rival has purple hair – go figure. Not saying anything else about this but trust me, this was hilarious. I swear.); the prom and after prom scene; Andrew’s timing that sucked to an epic level (Daemon’s words, not mine)... and a lot more. I really love every minute of reading Opal, but I have to admit it didn’t have as much action scenes as the previous books... although I did get some other kind of “action” and I’m not one to complain *snickers*. What? They were intense and sexy? I can’t help it. Ha! Ha!So I was serious when I said this wasn’t just all about Daemon, okay he’s somewhat part of it most of the time. Anyway, there’s Dawson who happens to be lost without Bethany – that was just sad; the DoD still being a pain; then the deal Katy and Daemon made with Blake... and of course there is Blake who I pitied during the first parts of this book but want him so badly to die a horrible, brutal, gruesome death by the end – didn’t happen though (yet), but I’ll be waiting and JLArmentrout better give justice for his crimes!I have not read a book that had me eagerly want to curse so badly as much as Opal did with the ending. I do curse (I try not to though), just not as bad as what went through my mind during those moment. Well, it looks like I have to wait a while longer to see what happens next. Ms. Armentrout, you are cruel! But I love you. LOL.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
