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.

Impossible  - Nancy Werlin This was a little creepy for my taste but I definitely enjoyed reading Impossible.When I first read the synopsis of this book, I expected it to be full of fantasy; with all the talk about an Elfin Knight who wants to own every one of the Scarborough girls, I expected some mischief from him or something now and then. Unfortunately the Elfin Knight, although making an appearance, didn’t do much but taunt Lucy to give up or hypnotize those around him to get information about his current victim. Also the fact that he hasn’t done anything to disrupt or interfere with any of the circumstances going on, noting that he’s a very powerful fae, is kind of a rip off. Not that I don’t want Lucy to succeed and all but there wasn’t anything shaking up the chapters from our antagonist. The only time I saw him do any damage was when he possessed Gray and raped Lucy.Speaking of chapters, I got a little confused with all the shifting of point of views. It’s not that hard to understand and catch up once you get how to identify them but a little forewarning would help a lot. I love Lucy and Zach’s romance. They’re perfect together and I like the chemistry between them. Although I didn’t buy the whole “we’re friends now then suddenly I’m in love with you” thing, totally forgivable since I find their relationship so sweet.What I appreciated most from this book was the values it provides readers. I’ve always been Pro-life, in which of course, abortion is a big no-no. I admired Lucy for not even having the slightest urge to have her baby aborted, even though others gave her the option. I also like the idea of showing that life does not end with one heartbreaking event. Of all things, I also admire the idea that when faced with hardships, family and true friends, will always be there to help you out; no one is ever alone in times of trouble.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
