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 Faerie Path (Faerie Path Series #1)

The Faerie Path  - Allan Frewin Jones I enjoyed reading this book. It’s not the super-ultra lovable story that appeals me more, but I liked how the Faerie Path turned out. It’s simple and a bit of the classic girly fairy tale. At first I thought it was awfully slow. It was excruciating to wait for the whole thing to fall into climax. But then I realized that this first installment was about Anita/Tania discovering herself as the long-lost princess of Faerie; and her return would of course involve her knowing how her life was back before she disappeared into the Mortal World. Yes, that would indeed involve the boring everyday “fun” of a princess in a palace doing stuff like strolling the gardens, bonding with her sisters, playing with animals, singing songs and all that claptrap. There are a lot of things left hollow though, I feel the characters don’t have that sheer ability to stand out or even just be notable enough. I also question the part where her father, the King of Faerie suddenly thought of going back to business just after two days of Anita/Tania returning to Faerie, hasn’t he thought of spending more time with the daughter you yearned for 500 years? Well anyway, it’s just a quick read. It’s not disappointing for me but i clearly saw through the simplicity and starkness of the tale.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
