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.

Vanish (Firelight Series)

Vanish: A Firelight Novel - Sophie Jordan Absolutely beautiful! A lot of changes have happened since Firelight, the first book of this series. If you’ve read that, then you know that Jacinda, Tamra and their mother went back to their pride, with Cassian of course. So on with what I found changed, it’s mostly on the characters:Jacinda, didn’t come out to me as a striking character from Firelight, but here in Vanish… Ugh! She is annoying. I don’t like the fact that she’s pining over both Cassian and Will. Stick with one guy, girl! Not cool! But at the same time, I totally feel sad for her, being separated from Will and dropping to the lowest of low and being distrusted by the pride, it was just so much for her to bear. Tamra, who was the annoying one before is now so lovable! She’s not so bitter anymore. And I like that she and Jacinda are now bonding, as sisters should be. I didn’t like Cassian from the first book but that hasn’t changed. Of course, I appreciate the way he looks after Jacinda but most of the things he do to help her benefits him more. And don’t get me started on his sister. She’s absolutely aggravating! Despite the fact that I didn’t want her hurt, she totally deserved what happened to her.I adored Will before but sadly he wasn’t much of a standout here, except during the last few chapters where there’s another mystery to be solved over his connection to the draki world. Although I did find it sweet of him to beat the odds to find Jacinda, but still, I already know that of him. I would’ve wanted to see something new from him. Yet, I really am intrigued about where all his draki connection would lead him to. I love that Vanish was more quick and adventurous than Firelight. It’s nice to see a lot more of the draki world and know more of what the hunters do to the draki they capture.As much as I enjoyed Firelight, I enjoyed Vanish even more. It’s amazing how Sophie Jordan was able to create a story that has so many possibilities. I’m really excited to read the next installment because I know there’s so much more to see.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
