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.

Steel

Steel - Carrie Vaughn I like this book. It has two things I am elated about: pirates and fencing. I’m a frustrated fencer. I wanted to try out in fencing when I was in college. I even had a friend train me for about 2 sessions. Unfortunately, time was a hindrance and I couldn’t get myself to train again, so that’s about all my fencing experience! Ha! Ha! I didn’t even get to hold a sword! Bummer!Anyway, I felt like I was in a class taking up Piracy 101 because while reading through this, I’ve learned a lot about the lives of pirates, their life at sea, the ships, and whatnots. I enjoyed seeing myself suddenly going, “Ohhhh! So that’s what it’s for…” The facts this book has provided was very informative so I really liked it.One of the things I also liked about this book was the show of women empowerment; there are pirate queens that I wasn’t actually aware of. Girl power as we say. I always like that factor when it comes to books.I also enjoyed the action scenes; Jill battling out on the fencing competitions and getting tangled up with the pirate life where she used her fencing skills to fight for her life, and the history behind the feud between Marjory Cooper, the captain of the Diana, and Edmund Blane, the captain of the Heart’s Revenge.However, I will admit that this book is a bit slow and more informative than groundbreaking. I also feel that the love interest between Jill and Henry was a bit shallow and rushed. I would’ve loved to see more romance between them. Still, I appreciated this and it was a good break from all the books that I’ve been reading for the past few months. It was like a breath of fresh air.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
