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.

A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle Trilogy #1)

A Great and Terrible Beauty  - Libba Bray A Great and Terrible Beauty opens readers to the world of characters whom you’d love to hate… Seriously! That’s the first thing I felt when I read the book. Gemma was such a brat to her mother, Felicity was a b****, Pippa was annoying and Ann was a suicidal coward. I hated them! But at the same time, it was what made me find them interesting. They had such defined characters, it’s like it was built with much history and foundation. They had solid personality and they become rather funny and intriguing once you get passed the hating part. ^^The plot was good. It’s nice to find a book not having to wither on focusing at a love triangle or having damsels rescued by the love of their lives; there’s the urge of power for women, and that’s something I like in a story. I’m too much of a feminist! Ha! Ha!Since I’ve already read Rebel Angels, I did find this one a bit on the downer side. It was mellow compared to the 2nd book, although I do understand that this book was meant to establish the trilogy, so basically it would start off on a mild course. All in all, it was pleasing to read and I’m rather curious to know how this trilogy would end.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
