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.

Entwined - At long last! I’ve finally got through this book. When I first got my copy of Entwined, I was excited to start flipping through the pages. Being a keen fan of fairy tales and retelling adding up the book trailer, the excerpt, not to mention the book cover, were all so convincing that this was a must-read. Or so I thought.The premise was really interesting and enough to sway you to read the book and find out how it ends. Unfortunately, the book was too long for the story it put out. I liked the world Dixon has created for this novel and every detail she extolled was easy to decipher. But majority of the book talked about dancing, it would’ve been interesting if it wasn’t so repetitive. The love interests between the characters were not shaped up well enough to make you root for whomever. The princesses’ relationship with their father messily progressed from hate to love. There were too much talk and narratives that didn’t seem necessary to fill in too many chapters that it was hard to get caught up in the story.The interesting parts came about a few chapters near the end of the book. Painstakingly long, I tell you. If this was delivered in fewer pages and focused more on the magic, developing love interests, and all the parts near by the ending rather than monotonous dancing activities that were already of sort the obvious hence what the premise has explained, this would have really pleased me.
