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 Name of the Star (Shades of London Series #1)

The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson This book was not something I thought I’d see myself reading; simply because it’s outside my comfort zone. I don’t really read books with ghosts and gruesome murder in it since I’m too much of a scaredy-cat when it comes to stories like that.Thankfully, The Name of the Star didn’t strike any awfully, nauseating gruesomeness or horror-ish scenes. It’s a little spooky and mysterious, but not something that kept me awake in the middle of the night. Anyway, I’ve heard of Jack the Ripper before but I didn’t really know any more details other than he’s a killer. Maureen Johnson’s intake of this legend was well enough to help get a few more elaborate details on Jack the Ripper. Although the facts are still murky and I still have a lot of questions in mind. I’d probably get more answers as this series progresses.Surprisingly, I found the Name of the Star a very enjoyable book to read. It may be on the slow side but the way the plot was executed and all the history behind how this all began was something I very much appreciated. It’s a little scarce on the romance side and I kind of didn’t get the whole Rory and Jerome relationship. I feel like it didn’t count as the romance part since I didn’t get giddy over their make-out sessions. I sort of picture Rory to be better off with Stephen, they seem to have more in common in all this. So all in all, I really liked this book and anyone who likes paranormal stories and mystery should definitely give this a try. Plus the ending would certainly make you want to read the next book.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
