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 Amaranth Enchantment

The Amaranth Enchantment - Julie Berry I liked this book! It was a Cinderella-like tale but not so much... in a good way.The characters were distinct. I liked Lucinda, she may be a bit innocent and too trusting but I can’t blame her since her aunt pretty much locked her up and never let Lucinda out of her sight. She wasn’t very aware of the world outside her uncle’s shop that she has lived in since her parents died when she was five. I was actually annoyed with Peter. He caused most of the trouble that Lucinda got into so I was really pissed at him but in the end I’d gotten to know him and I liked him then. Prince Gregor, as any prince can be, was of course charming and witty. The Amaranth Witch, was at first uncanny and I thought she was the bad guy, but it turns out she's sort of like a fairy godmother but not really. At first I thought that this would turn out a bit predictable but there were parts of the book that surprised me. Just when I’ve already made up my mind that a certain situation would happen, it backslides into something different that makes me want to keep reading.It’s a good light read and I enjoyed the fairytale-ish ending.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
