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.

Shadowspell (Faeriewalker Series #2)

Shadowspell - Jenna Black Okay, I can’t help but ask, was this really intended as a YA novel? I mean, yes I can see there are no intimate scenes, just lots of kissing, but there are some trifling cases of corruption of minor here. LOLAnyway, when I started this series, with Glimmerglass of course, I thought it was a good book. It was fun to read but didn’t give me that much to think about. It was enjoyable, but not very striking. So with that in mind, I was caught off guard when I started reading Shadowspell. I couldn’t wrap my head on the fact that this book has just kept me guessing and guessing with the events and yet I couldn’t come up with a good prediction on what would happen. It was THAT unpredictable. So when everything was revealded… BAM! It was totally unexpected.I liked that I saw growth among the characters; one in particular is Dana. Dana may be all naïve and ignorant but she knew what she was getting herself into but she tried her best to weigh things as well as she could, even if both choices had an awful future ahead. If you’re reading this book, you may feel like you want to slap the senses out of her, but I still empathize with her, she’s still just a kid after all. Getting to see more of Keane was another thing I liked because I didn’t see much of him from the first book. It’s also nice to see more of Finn, Kimber and Ethan as well so I wasn’t disappointed. I also applaud that the author didn’t create an all-too-perfect leading man. Ethan, to my eyes, is an a**. He’s a player and he knows it but wants Dana all the same. But I like that despite the fact that he’s not boyfriend-material, he wants to be so with Dana. I also am very much intrigued about the Erlking, Arawn with his great powers and needing to take Dana’s virginity and all, so I want to find out more.Overall, this book is pretty good, bit on the mature side, but a good installment among the Faeriewalker series.
