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 Dark Divine (Dark Divine (Quality))

The Dark Divine  - Bree Despain Finally! I got to finish the Dark Divine. Yehey! I can move on to my next to-read book. But wait! I need to write my review while the story is still fresh on my brain.I turn on my computer and open Microsoft Word. I rested my hands on my keyboard and looked at the blinking cursor and then… nothing.I had a staring contest with my iMac for several minutes before I got my fingers moving. I couldn’t come up with anything to say about it. I could only think of three things about it:- There were werewolves.- It’s a paranormal romance.- It was okay…… and then I go blank.Why is my brain dried out all of a sudden?So, as you can see, I ended up typing in what I started with. I see that Despain had put a lot of thought in creating the mythology of her tale. I like that she gave religion and faith a part in an idea that uncommonly included such. However, I got anxious with all the suspense and repetitive narrations of what Grace wanted to know, what she felt, where did Daniel go, why he disappeared, why’d he come back. The same thoughts she had in one chapter came back up in another. I got a bit annoyed. The characters were okay. Grace being a pastor’s daughter and all the righteousness she was bounded to was interesting though, Jude was confusing for me before I got to the climax but I can fathom the necessity of his personality. Daniel could’ve been a good character but there was a part of him that reminded me of Sam from Shiver, emo and whinny. I was surprised with the ending though, I didn’t expect the twist in it. It was nice to have some action inserted even if it was at right about the end already. The book shows a lot of potential but I guess the whole waiting of how it would end was much too long a waiting so that messed up my mind with how I’d picture the book’s totality and ended up with being blank and thinking it in-distinctive.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
