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.

Beautiful Chaos

Beautiful Chaos  - Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl I am disappointed. I started reading Beautiful Chaos with a huge smile and ended up with a frown on my face.After the great adventure I experienced with Beautiful Darkness, I expected Beautiful Chaos to surpass the excitement and thrill of the 2nd book of the Caster Chronicles. Sadly, it just dragged on; and to think that I was really, really eager to see a lot of great things from this book. There were several elements that bothered me while reading Beautiful Chaos, and they are as follows:THE PACING. It didn’t bother me that the first book, Beautiful Creatures, started out slow; I get it. There were a lot of things I needed to sink my brain into. Then came Beautiful Darkness that blew me away with such a thrilling adventure, which up until now, I could still not get over by the way. Unfortunately Beautiful Chaos came out slower than the first and just happened to be even less eventful too.CHARACTER INTERACTION. None of the characters wanted to tell anybody anything. They’ve always been so secretive during the first and second book, and it’s obvious that keeping secrets just gets them deeper into trouble and yet they keep doing so. I really wanted to jump inside the book and slap each character senseless. When will they ever learn??? PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. Another thing the characters don’t seem to learn or improve at. The constant “I don’t know” and “We need to figure out soon” is really getting old. They keep saying they’ll figure it out and yet ‘till the end, they still haven’t. They keep trying to find a way to solve it fast but then end up with something else to worry about. It’s an endless cycle.THE NUMBER OF PAGES. 500+ pages of all of talk and worry and not much going on is a pain. There are some chapters that I felt asking myself if they were really necessary to the story or not. CLIFFHANGERS. Another endless matter. How many moons will it take for anything to actually happen that’ll push me off my seat? NOT ENOUGH LINK. Seriously?! He turns into a quarter-incubus and that’s when he gets pushed aside? I had seen him in a more significant role as a mere mortal than now when he’s got more power in him. Not cool.So there. I feel so bad for ranting out but I really had such high hopes for this book. I’m a little skeptical about reading the next after this. I don’t know if it would get anywhere at all.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
