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.

Beauty Sleep: A Retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" (Once Upon a Time)

Beauty Sleep: A Retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" (Once Upon a Time) - Cameron Dokey Well this is new. Most fairy tales I’ve come across, I can somehow predict the outcome even before I get halfway through the book. But with “Beauty Sleep”, I was surprised with the ending. Even though I’m a bit disturbed with whom Aurore ended up with. I guess with my upbringing, it’s kind of awkward to be with THAT person, but I guess fairy tales can be capable of those and it wouldn’t be so bilious. Also, since I pretty much grew with the Disney version of this tale, I was accustomed to think that the prince would battle it out to get to the tower where Sleeping Beauty lays asleep; that didn’t happen. But the twist of it was something I can condone.With the characters at hand, I simply adored a lot of them. I love Princess Aurore, her thoughts were amusing and witty. I mostly loved Princess Aurore’s father King Philippe; a man of few words but deep and poignant. True and wise. Oswald and Ironheart are both witty and likable. Dokey’s writing is astonishing. I love how Dokey made the reader feel like Aurore was simply telling how her day went. It’s like talking to a friend who was just telling you a story that wasn’t such a big deal, even if it was like one of the biggest parts of her life. Such a remarkable story! Just truly remarkable.
