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.

Fury (Fury (Hardcover - Trilogy))

Fury - Elizabeth  Miles I am lost for words with Fury… and not in a good way.For starters, I find the synopsis and the book cover deceiving. When I read the synopsis I thought I was going to read from the Furies’ perspective and that this would focus on what they do. Instead, I ended up with alternating POVs of Em and Chase, whom I found as not very likeable characters. To make matters worse, you only get to see the Furies every now and then; the most you’d see of them would be on the last few chapters of the book. I would have loved to know more about the Furies. The idea of taking revenge or the idea of karma was invigorating. It would have been nice to know the history behind it and why they’re doing so, also how they choose who should pay for their mistakes but sadly, I didn’t get any of it. One thing I think of the Furies: they’re just morbid heartless girls.There are a lot of things I question about this book. I most certainly cannot condone the way they pick their victims, for the lack of a better word. I mean, I understand why they chose Chase, but I don’t see the justice over picking Em. Why wasn’t Zach chosen first instead? He did much worse didn’t he? In fact, I don’t see the justice in what they do at all, they eventually just end up killing the people they chose. I would’ve accepted the idea if they let them learn what they did wrong and change for the better… but no, they must die! Ugh! That’s just horrible.I also thought this was a typical paranormal, urban fantasy, young adult novel. But by the end of the book it turned into a light horror story, which I have never been a fan of. And I cringed at the creepiness of it.I’m still undecided if I’d read the next book because I felt that there isn’t much to look at with this first installment. I hope it gets better though.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
