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.

Retro Demonology (The Demon Trappers, #0.5)

Retro Demonology (The Demon Trappers, #0.5) - Jana Oliver Retro Demonology is a bonus short story from the Demon Trappers series. I thought I’d try this first before starting on the series, just so I can get an idea about what this series is about. This story was about Riley’s first ever solo assignment. She usually goes off with her father but now she must prove that she can handle trapping a demon on her own. I got to grasp the concept of her job and what she and her people do, but I really don’t get what’s so bad about taking care of a Grade One demon where hippies were involved. Is Riley just annoyed with them or what? Speaking of the Grade One demon, well her job didn’t really take on much but reading out loud to weaken it? And that ending... where exactly was it taking readers to? What made it want a reader to look forward to? I’m all puzzled here. Since I haven’t read any of the books from this series, I thought this would help me understand Riley’s world a bit, but I don’t think it did much of a job. I guess that’s the problem with bonus short stories, they’re just too short to get anything deep out of them. But then again, I’ve read some that actually left me satisfied, this one though didn’t. I guess it would have been more interesting to me if I’ve managed to read the first book beforehand. But have no fear, because I’m still eager to read the Demon Trappers books.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com/
