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.

Meridian (Meridian Series #1)

Meridian  - Amber Kizer This book has its perks: the premise sounds so intriguing, it has a great cover, and the story itself was catchy. However I felt that it wasn’t fully developed.I guess it needed more work. Let’s set aside the issue of Christianity and/or religious beliefs because in Meridian’s world, it has a different perspective so I totally understand that. But I think the flow of the book might have been overlooked. The establishment of the characters’ lives was an okay phase for me; the training of Meridian’s Fenestra powers was a little unevenly set. And the climax was way too fast and not as eventful as I thought it would be. The characters also needed improving. As much as I like Meridian and Tens, they were underdeveloped, and there are things I do not understand about them. I also feel like I didn’t get to know them that well. Although I do like seeing them together and I kind of get giddy whenever they get all sweet and lovey-dovey. LOL. I also felt that some of the conversations where either non-essential to the story or when cut-off midway to establish intrigue, isn’t continued again at all. That’s kind of a bummer. Still, I was hooked to this book; I really love the romance between Meridian and Tens. I think the whole Fenestra thing was great and the history created for it was very well thought of. I will read the next book and I hope it gets better. I have faith in the Fenestra series! For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
