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.

Warrior Princess

Warrior Princess  - Allan Frewin Jones, Allan Frewin Jones I’ve always found medieval stories interesting. Also, I’m a bit feministic over book protagonists so Warrior Princess seemed to befit my taste. I was curious to know how it would turn out. At first, I struggled with how the story was going on. I felt that it was too slow and Branwen seems totally fixated with her grief for her brother; which was somehow too much to be taken as brotherly love. If I didn’t know Geraint was her brother, I would’ve thought he was her lover. It was just too strange a closeness to be between brother and sister, or maybe I’m not accustomed to such deep relationship with siblings. Another thing I struggled with was the characters’ names; I feel they were a mouthful, or maybe I haven’t been able to read many books with the same naming strategy. With all that in mind, I was hesitant to continue reading. But curiosity is a powerful thing on me so I let it be my strength to continue. Anyway, Jones’ writing was clear and can be easily understood. Jones has a way of making the setting come alive. The plot on the other hand, was somehow too strained. It took quite a lot of time before it reached the end of its journey, which really made me weary. But when the battle scene took place, I was immediately hanging on to my seat. I just adore the power of warrior women! Overall, the book was moderately amusing. The ending though left me with a lot of questions that needed answers so I will be reading the next book, Destiny’s Path.
