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.

Wildefire - Karsten Knight This is definitely one of the wittiest books I’ve ever read!Wildefire is such a fun book to read. Karsten Knight presents readers with a story that is unpredictable, captivating and entertaining. I absolutely LOVE it!So why do I love Wildefire? Let me count the ways:MYTHOLOGY. I’ve always loved Mythology. Back in high school, when we studied Edith Hamilton’s Mythology in English class, I was one of the few students who looked forward to it, and yes it did print a “nerd” sign on the back of my chair. I found Mythology to be really interesting so I’ve been that student who eagerly raises her hand to recite in class, and also landed me the role of being the “coach” to my classmates who are called to answer the teacher’s questions a few times… or maybe a lot.Okay. So going back to Wildefire, I love the mix of culture and lore that it offered readers. The rich variety just made this book even more interesting. THE CHARACTERS. I only need two words to describe them fully: memorable and fascinating; most specially Ashline. When she was defined as a human mood ring, I totally get it. To all the guys complaining about your girlfriend or girl friends’ mood swings, be thankful you don’t get to see Ashline Wilde’s. Seriously! And who ever though sarcasm could be such fun to hear? I loved every other response she gives the other characters.THE PLOT. I already said it was unpredictable, and who doesn’t love surprises? Well… the good kind that is. It was exciting and I love the mystery and the idea that there are more things in store for readers as this series progresses.THE PACING. Flawless!THE ACTION. Something I always look for in a book.THE WRITING. I love, love, love Karsten’s writing style. It’s simple, amusing and will have you gripping every word. And last but not the least…THE ENDING. What the…?! ‘nuff said.Of course, Wildefire is not perfect. I do have a few issues like: how the other girl Ashline has visions/dreams about is suddenly out of the picture or pushed aside by the ending when she seemed so vital to Ashline’s life; also I kind of wanted to know more about why Eve was so evil, not much background story about why she ended up that way… but the hell with it! I’m sure I’ll get some answers next time; I love it all the same.So to those who love mythology, I suggest you give this book a shot. Hopefully you’d love it just as much.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
