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.

Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls Series #1)

Shiver  - Maggie Stiefvater One word that best describes Shiver for me is: DRAMA. I felt like I was watching a mythological soap opera. Don't get me wrong, I love Maggie's novels, her writing is magnificent, but I didn't like Shiver as much as I loved Maggie's other novel, Ballad. The new twist of this werewolf tale was the reason I bought this book. However, I wasn't that fascinated with how it turned out. I guess I was expecting some action when books involve mythological creatures, sort of a little hack and slash, some ripping and fighting, something like that. But it was mainly focused on the love interest between Sam and Grace. I like Grace's character. She's simple yet distinctive, pretty much a real person. Sam on the other hand was too fictional. He sounds way too emo, and was obviously created in a girl's wishful mind of an "Ideal Man". He was too perfect to be taken seriously as a guy. Overall, this book was okay for me. Good writing, nice plot, simple main characters - it's okay. I'm looking forward to reading Linger though, because there is one spunky little character I loved in Shiver and she'll be tousling our minds as she expresses her thoughts in Linger. (Yes, Isabelle, I'm talking about you.)^^For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
