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.

City of Bones: Mortal Instruments, Book 1

City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare A riveting urban fantasy!I don’t know what this book has to keep me turning every page of it as soon as I started reading. Every mythical creature you could think of are right here in the City of Bones, and seeing how well they could coexist in one tale is interesting in enough for me. I like the plot how things had fallen into place. But what I really loved about this book are the characters. Jace, anyone? Can I get a “Hell Yeah?” ^_^I agree with the lots of girls who found him lovable. Yes, he’s an incredibly conceited, cocky, annoying, arrogant little arse that he is, and he knows it. Unfortunately that doesn’t stop him from being charming and humorous. Clary was a character that’s rare and I love her way of offsetting what Jace has implied. I do have trouble with Simon though, I can’t quite decipher where I place him in my thoughts because somehow he’s a little indistinctive and yet there are times he stands out. Luke’s story was another thing I held on to thoughtfully, it was nice, sad and sympathizing. Alec, Isabelle, Magnus, even Raphael and everyone else spilt out their significance stylishly and I came to either love them, hate them or love and hate them at the same time.Yes, I will agree that this book had its share of predictability, but clichés can be a good thing sometimes; as long as you can throw in something good to counter or add to it, like how Clare has done with this book.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
