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.

The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies Series #3) (B&N Exclusive Edition)

The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies Series #3) (B&N Exclusive Edition) - Warning: If you haven’t read the Lorien Legacies series, this review contains spoilers.John Smith/Four is lucky to be alive after braving the hideout of the Mogadorians. In doing so he manages to free Nine from his imprisonment, but in his escape, Sam got left behind. Although tempting to go after him, Four and Nine are pressed forward to find the rest of the Garde, train, fight the Mogs and free everyone on earth, including Sam. But the plan isn’t that simple...Meanwhile, Six has finally found Seven in Spain, along with Ella/Ten and her Cepan, Crayton. After careful research, they’re off to India to find another member of the Garde. As Seven tries to catch up to the training Six already had with her legacies, and as Ten still waits for her own legacies to develop, they get to meet who they’ve been travelling in search for, a peculiar one of their kind, Eight. As these remaining Gardes find their way to each other, they fight off the Mogadorians, as best they could, who are eagerly trying to kill them all. But they know that this battle only comes down to them, the remaining Lorien Gardes, and Setrakus Ra, the leader of the Mogadorians...This is one hell of an action packed book! I haven’t even settled myself in it when Six, Seven and Ten get their first taste of fighting off the Mogs. Four and Nine though are in for a different group of enemies. Enemies that they didn’t know were in league with the Mogs. Four is a lot stronger now from the first time he came into picture. His fighting skills are more of the warrior he’s thought off to be. I can’t say the same for his decision-making skills though. Now I’m not heartless, but thinking of throwing yourself into the Mogs’ hideout without a plan is reckless – not to mention stupid. Noble, yes, because he wants to save Sam, but if he and Nine had a huge struggle to escape the first time, how can going back there – wounded and disoriented – assure they’d get out alive? The gradual rendezvous of the characters that’s happening within this series just makes it all the more exciting to read. And now here in Rise of Nine, it’s an interesting mix of characters – and a lot of hormonal moments going on. Nothing dirty, don’t worry, but a lot of physical attraction. At first it was cute but kind of a little crazy as it went on. It’s like a route map! Six likes Four then she finds Eight interesting, then Eight likes Seven, then Nine likes Six, you see? Crazy, I tell you. Anyway, I most especially like Nine among the characters. Oh, that dude totally cracks me up! He is absolutely hilarious. He’s all bad ass, and the whole fighting that goes on with him and Four was awesome. Okay, so I know they’re not supposed to fight but seeing them go head to head in a “sparring” session (that’s heavily quoted by the way, you’ll see why when you read the book) was definitely entertaining. Moving on. That whole Setrakus Ra moment was unbelievable! Uhm...I guess it goes both ways, good and bad. It was good because you finally get to see what the Mog Boss is actually capable of. Also the fighting scenes were incredibly vivid and will keep you at the edge of your seat. The bad part came when I didn’t get the details on how they fended off his power and the Gardes got their legacies back. I know Ella did something, but what exactly was that exactly? Yup, the authors left it out for Book 4 to explain. Sheesh! The Lorien Legacies series gets really more exciting every time the next book comes out; opening one door after the other to a whole new adventure. I can’t wait to see what happens when finally the entire Garde is complete. Who carries which Loric leader’s power? Who possesses Pittacus Lore’s gift? And how will these seven remaining kids from Lorien save the earth from being ruled by the Mogadorians?
