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.

Juliet Immortal

Juliet Immortal - Stacey Jay “The greatest love story ever told is a lie.”That catch phrase was enough to make me pick up this book. When I read the excerpt, it just made things a lot more interesting. And thus, I began reading the story of Juliet and her Romeo in a different kind of light.So the first part of the story takes us to where Juliet and Romeo are at present. Of course, they’re already dead but their souls jump in and out of different bodies for centuries now. They do this to accomplish their missions; Juliet, working as an Ambassador of Light, saves true love/preserves soul mates and Romeo tries to win one of them to the Mercenaries’ cause, where one has to sacrifice his/her soul mate’s life, just like what he did with Juliet. Juliet is in Ariel’s body while Romeo inhabits the now dead body of the boy who made a fool out of Ariel. Oh, Juliet, nothing tastes as bitter as the grudge of woman scorned! LOL. Juliet had a lot of hate-issues in her. I really pitied Juliet on how her fate ended up at. Not that I can blame her for falling deeply in love with a boy she thought would give her the world, she was young and naïve; and I hated Romeo for what he did. But as I progressed through the book, I realized that Juliet wasn’t the only one who was gullible, Romeo was just the same. They were both young after all. I felt how Romeo, despite being a total jerk, regretted his actions.I wish I got to know more things about the Mercenaries and the Ambassadors of Light though, since they seemed so significant in Juliet and Romeo’s present lives, but there weren’t much of them to be seen around. I was very much surprised about the ending. I don’t know if this book has a 2nd one from the way it ended but I cringe at the idea of what happened. I’m not going to say what it is, but it seems that no matter how the author tried to make it seem like a happy ending, it was still tragic. Although, I have to say; I’d give Stacey Jay a pat on the back with how beautiful her writing style is!I really enjoyed reading this book even though it’s not particularly my type of stories. I’m not one to go for the somewhat-dramatic kind of books but I’m happy I gave this a try.Juliet Immortal is a story that teaches us that in spite of all the pain, we can learn to love again; and that in more ways than one, we can learn to forgive others but mostly, forgive ourselves.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
