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.

The Iron Knight (Iron Fey Series #4)

The Iron Knight - Julie Kagawa After reading the final installment of the Iron Fey series, I woke up with puffy eyes the next morning. Never had I read a book that made me cry as badly as Iron Knight did. I feel that it is an incredibly fitting ending for this series. The Iron Knight dove into the deepest part of a story I have come to love so much.When I first started reading through this book, I was shocked about the first part. I was beginning to feel my heart break with the idea that, given the current circumstances, Ash and Meghan might never be together anymore. As I sunk deeper into reading, I felt so helpless. I didn’t know what to feel about Ash’s given situation. And there came a point where I was having second thoughts on the Ash-Meghan romance. Of course I wanted them together but could I let my hero sacrifice that much? Nevertheless, even with everything that happened, I was thankful for the ending. This I believe was Ash’s greatest and hardest fight ever.I really loved the surprises Julie Kagawa has thrown into this book. I love the adventure and the complexity of the Iron Knight. But what I loved most about this book was how it gave readers a whole new perception on the Winter Prince’s heart and mind. I thought I knew more of Ash in the Iron Queen but turns out I didn’t have a clue on who he really was before he met Meghan.Also, Iron Knight reminds me of the song “Warrior is a Child” (I like the Gary Valenciano version of it), which always makes me teary eyed when I listen to. Particularly the lyrics below: “Lately I’ve been winning battles left and rightbut even winners can get wounded in a fight…”“But they don’t see inside of meI’m hiding all the tears…”It strongly reminds me of the Ash I came to know here in this book; strong and brave but also vulnerable. He may be Fae and a fictional character but possesses traits any typical person has, which pretty much makes him more likeable to Team Ash fans even for his flaws.I extremely recommend YA fans to read this book and the entire series because if you haven’t, then you’re missing out on one of the best stories ever created.….and now for a little surprise of my own.I was supposed to post this along with this review but sadly I’m not done with it yet. So, without further adieu here’s a glimpse of the FAN ART I’m working on…So, hopefully I'd be done with it in a few weeks. I really, really hope so!!!
