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.

Fairy Tale Fail

Fairy Tale Fail - Mina V. Esguerra Fairy Tale Fail introduces readers to Ellie. A girl in her twenties who believes life is like a fairy tale, and she falls in love with the idea of a happily ever after – oh girl, are you in for a huge reality check! Fairy Tale Fail kind of reminds me of the movie, Legally Blonde. You know, the movie where this blonde girl gets dumped by her boyfriend, and she goes into law school where the guy is at and tries to prove herself so that he’d take her back. But in the end the guy’s a douche and she realizes she doesn’t want the guy anymore – something like that.I think (and correct me if I’m wrong) that this book is the shortest one I’ve read from Mina Esguerra. I guess that’s one reason I find myself speechless over reading this book – uh, dumbstruck (?) might be more appropriate (since I’m typing all this). It doesn’t have the kind of foundation or character development like the other books have.Ellie is a good character, but she’s not as memorable as the rest of the protagonists from the author’s other books. Same goes with the leading man, Lucas is okay. But I didn’t get to know him that much so I can’t really say I like him. But if I had to choose between him and Don, I’d say Lucas all the way. I’ve been with someone like Don, and I hated the way I was told I’m not ready for this and that because I’m not “dedicated” enough to the job at hand. Dude, seriously, lay off! Been there, done that! Trust me, they always think they know better on how you should live your life.What stood out for me while reading this is the way Ellie portrayed a strong kind of woman. She never really needed to change in the first place just so she could find true love. I think that’s one important matter that women should come to realize. So yeah, it was good, just too short. But I say, “Yay!” to women empowerment. :)For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
