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.

Nightshade (Nightshade Series #1)

Nightshade (Nightshade Series #1) - Nightshade = Predictable? NOT!This book is absolutely dynamic. The plot is not something you would normally encounter. The whole mythology and history was greatly in-depth. I think Cremer had gone through real painfully long hours of research to pull it off that immensely. I love that, from start to finish, I hadn’t gone weary (not one bit!). With every flip of a page and with every passing chapter, there’s just always something gripping you to keep reading.The characters are noteworthy. Calla is an alpha wolf. Yes! Finally a female pack leader. Ha! Ha! Ren, a male alpha, had really proven his dominating personality, both in good and annoying ways. Shay is one of kind, although I am still wondering why he’s throwing himself all over Calla. Everyone else involved, Bryn, Ansel, etcetera, they all stand out, and I admire Cremer’s ability to have created them in such a way. I did find some things puzzling though. I don’t get how Calla and Shay even started having feelings for each other. Don’t get me wrong, I like Shay and Calla’s relationship, it’s sweet and funny but how did it even begin? At the opening chapter, it just kind of whacked into the scene without anything solid to define it. On the other hand, Ren and Calla’s relationship seemed vague. I mean it was clear that Ren’s in love with Calla, but how did it actually start anyway? He’s a ladies’ man, what exactly did Calla have to pull him to her? I’m not questioning Calla’s personality; I just want to have something to grasp at to be able to understand how it all occurred.I can say that this is a spectacular debut novel, still every book has its flaws but Nightshade’s blemishes does not surpass the aptitude that this book has to offer. Up until the end I’m torn between Ren and Shay, so I’m very eager to know how it’ll turn out. I cannot, and I mean CANNOT, wait for Wolfsbane.
