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.

Winter's Child (Once Upon a Time (Simon Pulse))

Winter's Child - Cameron Dokey So where do I begin? I find this book rather strange. Weird. I don’t know. Usually, when I finished reading a book, I’d hear myself utter a word or two about what I felt about the book; like, “Wow” or “That was fun.” But there are moments, once in a while, that when I turn over the last page, I find myself speechless. It can mean a good thing or a bad thing, or sometimes I just don’t know what I feel.At this point, I’m still undecided about Winter’s Child. It was interesting and definitely a new twist to the classic story of The Snow Queen, but I don’t know whether I liked it or didn’t. It’s just really strange. This retelling started out with the introduction of the Winter Child’s life. Followed shortly by the life of Grace and Kai. Then Kai asks Grace to marry him, assuming he thought that was the best idea at the time. Grace says no, and he goes of following the Winter Child, Deirdre, back to her kingdom. So this is where the adventure begins. Grace goes out to find Kai and apologize, and supposedly to take back her refusal to marry him. She comes across obstacles and meets new people; make new friends, as well as enemies. On particular friend she found tagged along her journey, a falcon. So on she goes, blah blah blah… This is where it gets all strange. Also, if you’re planning to read this book, stop reading this review at this point, it gets a little spoiler-ish. She comes across a house with an old woman, this is supposedly a test but the solution to pass this test was just really weird. I don’t get it with just simply THAT (can’t say what it is, sorry), you can break a powerful curse or spell. The other parts that followed after this event just left me puzzled. I didn’t know what to think about it. I didn’t get the idea of what it had to do with this retelling. So overall I think this was good. I’m in neutral territory on this book though, I didn’t hate but I didn’t love it either.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
