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.

Onyx (Lux Novel)

Onyx - Jennifer L. Armentrout As hard as Katy denies it, she has developed deep feelings for Daemon. It’s not helping that he’s trying to win her over, and make amends for treating her badly before. But it seems that there are other things they need to worry about. The Department of Defense is lurking around town, and once they find out about what Katy can do – she’s in for a lot of trouble, worse even for Daemon. And yet, it’s not enough that Katy is juggling her feelings for Daemon, and being careful not to be discovered by the DoD, they suddenly learn of something even deeper. Something that sparked hope – but it might leave Daemon devastated all in the end...Before anything else, let me just say... I WANT THE DAMN COOKIE, DAEMON! Gimme! *drools* LOLWow! Daemon and Katy’s relationship just got hotter with each book. That cookie moment is still stuck in my head up until now. Damn! Can this guy get any hotter? I mean seriously? *fans self*I loved Daemon in Obisidian, even though he was a douche most of the time, but I love him even more with Onyx. I am so happy to see that side of him. It’s almost as if he’s courting Katy, [I am a Filipina so yeah, courtship is a big deal for me] which makes him seem like such a gentleman, and makes all the more attractive. Yummy! What? He is! This book was such a great read. The one thing that bothered me about this book was Katy’s mistrust and stubbornness. I feel like I’m sensing a pattern here with the 2nd instalment of books in a series. I felt it when I read Insurgent by Veronica Roth where Tris was all emo and annoying, then I had the same feeling with Saba in Rebel Heart by Moira Young. And now Katy goes about doing the same thing. What is it with these girls being so stubborn? I know they have their reasons but worse things could have been avoided if they would just listen. I wasn’t expecting all the surprises I got while reading Onyx. I was expecting more from Daemon and Katy, of course, but the whole involvement of the Department of Defense, their spies, the Arum and that big reveal in the end – those just left me speechless. I always thought of the Lux series as more of a love story with the extraterrestrial twist than anything else. So yes, I relished every moment I was caught off guard and I just kept yearning for more.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
