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.

Firelight (Firelight Series)

Firelight (Firelight Series) - I’m having a hard time summing up how I feel about this book. Basically, it’s a mythological Romeo and Juliet kind of tale. The premise was good enough to draw me towards this book and the cover was amazing, those are my weaknesses. The whole draki race and history was very interesting. The love connection between Jacinda and Will, Prey and Hunter, is also interesting; nothing like a bittersweet tale of forbidden love to spark anyone’s interest. With all that in mind, I expected to enjoy this book. I did. But I didn’t devour it as I anticipated myself to. Reading the book was quite fun, but there were times I felt that the characters, namely Jacinda and her twin Tamra, were irrefutably whiny. Both wanting something of the opposite, making things difficult even though it could’ve been solved easily. Will’s personality was a bit vague, as well as Xander, Cassian and Angus. I guess I wanted to know more about them. From the whole fantasy tale of creatures that descended from dragons, I expected more than just a love story, even though I’ve read the synopsis of the book, which eventually held true to its content. It IS a story of romance and Jacinda’s struggle with her draki. For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
