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.

The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle Trilogy #3)

The Sweet Far Thing  - Libba Bray First of all, I have to admit, when I picked up The Sweet Far Thing, I immediately checked the number of pages I’d be reading and asked myself: “What could possibly be in this book to use up over 819 pages?” I winced at the thought that this might be slow-paced. And unfortunately, it was.Bray’s writing was indeed beautiful. But more than half of the book was a drag. It was only kept interested by a few stolen moments between Gemma and Kartik. Every other chapter just showed why I loathe (and love) the characters; they threw their wrath at each other; they were greedy and selfish, annoying and deceitful. One other interesting thing that went in between the chapters was the revelation of Felicity’s identity. The whole lot of the story was thrown in at about Chapter 60 (Page 687), imagine the long wait! Although, I do understand that it was meant to give the reader time to absorb and mould the idea of the tale. Still, I wish I could’ve been at least a bit lesser than 819 pages.As I reached page 777, I was starting to feel edgy and by the end of the book, my face was sleek with tears. The ending was heartbreaking. It seemed unfair, since I’m a sucker for happy endings. I didn’t expect how it turned out, yet it was rightly fitting. Despite being torn from what happened, The Sweet Far Thing has brought me a bittersweet tale that is well to be remembered.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
