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.

Bones of Faerie

Bones of Faerie - Janni Lee Simner I didn’t understand the world of this book at first. The usual Faerie books I’ve read would be in a world either during the late centuries of the past or within the present state, since the fair folk are told to be really old. I didn’t expect a post-apocalyptic era so I had a bit of a hard time grasping what kind of environment this was.When I finally understood the setting, I was able to relish the adventure that Liza was undertaking with Matthew. I really appreciated Liza and Matthew’s journey on finding Liza’s mother, but I have to say this isn’t one of the best books I’ve read. It was good but not as memorable as I thought it would be. There are several things that I got a little confused about. First of all, I couldn’t relate to Liza or maybe I wasn’t given the chance to get to know her more. Although I did love her faerie magic, now that was cool. Matthew on the other hand merely looked like just an ordinary werewolf other than a human touched by faerie magic. I wish I knew more about how the magic spread among the humans in a more elaborate explanation. It would have been a very interesting subject.I would’ve loved to see some romance with the characters but unfortunately this book lacked that part. Also it appeared a bit too short and too slow. I also think this was a bit too dramatic for me. I didn’t see any humorous events in this book, which I would’ve loved to get a whiff of. Regardless, I will read the next book and see how it fares.
