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.

Wolfsbane (Nightshade Series #2)

Wolfsbane - Andrea Cremer This is an intense and very informative book. I think I’m still a little overwhelmed as Calla was on discovering the history and truths about the life she thought she knew. I thought that Nightshade, the first book of this series has already provided me with enough background to understand the mythology and fantasy of this tale. Little did I know that there was more to it than I already learned?Wolfsbane isn’t as action-packed as the first book was, it was more focused on all the planning to rescue Calla’s pack mates and gather forces on the Searchers’ side, knowing the truth behind the Keepers’ lies, and finding out more about Shay’s importance and the history of the Searchers’ and Keepers. It’s quite a lot of talk really. I’m not really a fan of that sort so I did find it slow and dreary. But the new characters that had come into picture caught my interest. There were a lot of personalities to take in from all the new characters, but I enjoyed getting to know them all.At first when they all gathered up on a supposed meeting, I was annoyed for being so confused at not understanding any of what they were talking about. It was only later that I realized that Cremer was showing the difference of the Searchers from the Keepers. In Calla’s eyes, the Searchers were given much freewill to express their opinion and emotions. Despite how confusing they can get and how well off topic they could end up at, they show respect to their leader and in return their leader treats them equally. Something Calla has not experienced in her life at the Keepers’ hands. She was given what to do, and she does it, no questions asked. I don’t have a say on the Shay-Calla-Ren relationship, I was torn between who to bet on for Calla during Nightshade, but now I’m still on information-overdrive that I hadn’t thought about which team to be on. Even though I said that this book dragged, there were lots of surprises too. The last few chapters took in every ounce of action it may’ve lacked in the beginning. I was sad to see some of the characters I’ve come to love change or get killed. I was also shocked with the revelation near the end. Boy, did I not expect that! Just when you though you knew everything, here comes something new to think about! I expect Bloodrose to be pouring out with action and surprises that will have anyone following this series on the edge of their seat.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
