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.

Angelfire (Angelfire Series #1)

Angelfire (Angelfire Series #1) - This is by far the most action-packed book I’ve read! As soon as I stepped into the first chapter, I was turning page after page after page almost non-stop! And to think I had a ton of work to do. Ha! Ha!On reading Angelfire, I instantly noticed how effortlessly creative this book is. The plot was well contemplated. The characters are striking and every scene is brutally narrated. Yes, brutally since readers will find Ellie, the protagonist, hacking and slashing every reaper on her track.There’s never a dull moment with this book, each chapter provides either a ruthless ass-kicking scene or an interesting funny fragment of Ellie’s normal human life. Surely you’ll notice the clichés, there are a lot I’m telling you, but Moulton throws it right back at you with a smashingly ingenious twist that makes you forget the inanity. There are a bit of too much talk in some events, like when Ellie kept asking Will questions of this and that. It’s a bit ridiculous since it seems to be just a cynical way to inform the readers of the facts about the story, but not something one could not tolerate.The characters are of course, lovable for me. Ellie is funny and has the curious, bubbly, and sometimes annoying spirit of a typical teenager. Will on the other hand is sooooo serious! If you’re looking for someone to ruin the fun, he’s your man! Ha! Ha! But despite that, he’s noble and loyal. He may be too fictional a character so it’s hard to think of him to be realistic and as someone you could relate to. Also, he seems to have been molded from the Final Fantasy series, he appeared to have Squall’s (FFVIII) mood and looks, and Cloud’s (FFVII) sword at hand. The secondary characters and villains are also those that would intrigue readers. And they provided more flavor to the tale. There was a certain part that got me stuck on. When Ellie met her nemesis Bastian, she asked him where Cadan was. I don’t know if I just forgot he was mentioned or I hardly noticed him in the other chapters but I really think that was the first time he was revealed and there wasn’t anything describing his relationship with Bastian or Ellie before he came into picture, or even when he was already in picture. So, that’s a bit confusing to me.Anyway, with all things considered, I really savored this book. Despite the flaws, I think this is a really great debut novel for Moulton. Hands down to her vivid creativity. I can’t wait for the next book! For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
