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.

Elixir

Elixir - Hilary Duff, Elise Allen If some people were sceptical about this book, I was actually very curious to read it; I mean we’re talking about Hilary Duff here! C’mon it’s intriguing!The book wasn’t bad. In fact, I found it pretty good! The writing was clear and very descriptive, although I did find some of the parts a bit too descriptive. I guess Hilary was trying to let the reader know Clea well enough to relate to her, but I guess that went a little too much. The plot was put together very well and I admire Hilary Duff’s creativity. However I think she needed to add a bit of excitement in between events. I’m saying this because I found the story a bit too forward. It’s like taking a trip across the country without any pit stops or side trips to add a little fun. Almost more than half of the book was focused on Clea’s thoughts pondering with which decision to make; followed by a sudden pouring of everything that has to do with Sage then BOOM! The end… I felt a bit frustrated there because after revealing Sage’s plan, the mystery of the disappearance of Clea’s father (which was the actual reason for everything in the first place) suddenly didn’t matter. It was left out so plainly in just a snap. Also, the ending really just left me hanging. But then again, there’ll be a 2nd book, so maybe my questions will be answered there and I’m looking forward to it.I’m eager to see Hilary Duff grow as a writer and enhance her writing ability. She’s brave enough to step in world were she knew people would doubt her and I would like to see what else she can offer us after Elixir.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
