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.

Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle Trilogy #2)

Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle Trilogy #2) - When I finished Rebel Angels, I immediately thought of the TV series “Gossip Girl”. Instead of “the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s Elite”, it twists to “the scandalous lives of Victorian-Era London’s elite society” – with magic to add to that. Rebel Angels is the first book from the Gemma Doyle Trilogy that I have read. As expected, I was a bit puzzled with the story. The characters mention events that happened during the first book that I haven’t yet known. But as soon as Gemma narrated the past incident, I was able to grasp at the plot.The characters are very distinctive and their personalities were quite real. There’s greed, hunger, and deceit; pretty much as scandalous as any society can get. I love the imperfection and the struggle for perfection and everything that goes with it; wealth, popularity, a higher praise in society, the works. Bray’s writing was indeed incredible. It was dramatic and clear. Although, being the impatient reader that I am, I was fretful to figure out everything and I kept screaming, “C’mon! C’mon! Who is Circe?” or “What now?! What’s next?!” I was agitated with the suspense and mystery, yet Libba Bray had a beguiling way of unravelling the mysteries.
