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.

Devoted (Elixir)

Devoted - Hilary Duff, Elise Allen I’m a little overwhelmed with Devoted. It was a good and all, definitely a step up from Elixir, the first book. But I guess the vastness on how this series has progressed into was not something I was prepared for. What started out as a simple love story morphed into a world where the story of the Elixir of Life has more to it than it seems and the tragic love story between Clea and Sage is just one of the few misgivings when the Elixir is involved. Devoted introduces readers to whole new set of characters that will either disgust you, awe you or make you sympathize with. There are so many things the Elixir could do that the characters are unaware of until disaster strikes. I’m kind of a little disappointed with Clea and Sage’s actions. Even with the whole narrative and history about them being soulmates and how strong and rare this bond is, what they did spoke louder than what history projected, and trust me their actions did not speak “we’re soul mates.” I admire Hilary for creating this book; even though she had help, the storyline is still commendable. Although I’d have to say that the stretch Devoted has introduced me to made me feel that I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it either. It may have been a bit too much for me to take in but I definitely enjoyed reading this.The ending has unwrapped this series to endless possibilities and it is what I may call an "open" ending. I don't even know if that makes sense but I’m certainly looking forward to the third installment.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
