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.

The Candidates (Delcroix Academy)

The Candidates - Inara Scott This book felt X-men-ish with all the Delcroix agenda and the talents of its students. It was very intriguing to read… at first. I have to admit that I expected more from this book. With having discernable characters and a nice plot to begin with, it fell short for me. It was mainly focused on information about what Delcroix is. I get the idea of trying to let the reader understand the background and history of it all but it was a little too much for me. The characters were okay, but some of their personalities were a bit predictable and it was obvious that the author was scheming on a love triangle between Cam, Dancia and Jack, but I like how it’s going on. I just hope it won’t be like the Edward-Bella-Jacob kind of relationship when it progresses.Moving on, I found the pace was a little too slow. I don’t like it when mysteries and questions get to be repeatedly mentioned in several chapters and reading this book had every question on Dancia’s mind repeated more than I can bear. It’s not worth the wait anymore if all that happens is anticipate on when it would actually all be revealed then end up with just a smidge of the entire content, leaving the rest to be discovered on the next book. Cliffhangers are good to keep a reader going, but this is like a film that suddenly got cut exactly when the climax is happening. I won’t deny that I do want to read the next book. I want to find out what happens of course, but I do wish that it would be worth the wait.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
