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 Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

The Hunger Games  - Suzanne  Collins I wasn’t planning to read this book because I hated to feel the regret of books widely popular but turn out to be disappointing for the readers. But curiosity has taken its toll on me so I ended up buying the Hunger Games box set. And now I know what the fuss is all about!At the first few pages, I was immediately at awe with Collins’ writing. The plot was something I rarely encountered in books, although it seems to remind me of a movie that had the same killing game agenda. I just totally forgot the movie title and the actors’ names but I foggily remember that they were convicts and big, brawny, wrestler-type of men fighting for their lives and their freedom on some island. Anyway going back to Hunger Games, as I said, the plot was rare and I found it to be incredibly detailed and well-thought off. Usually, books would have their fair share of slowness; either to let the readers brace for what comes next or just to give them time to get to know the characters. But this doesn’t, it leaps you immediately into action (which I love so much!), getting you hyped and in spite of the many busy adventures occurring throughout the book, Collins gives the reader enough time and detail throughout the book to understand Katniss’ personality and know her history. She’s a very strong character with solid qualities. I love that she’s no damsel-in-distress. I love that her relationship with Peeta is conspired differently and is being moulded into something true and unyielding. Despite the cliff-hanger at the ending, the Hunger Games is unquestionably a great book to read and I look forward to know what comes next!For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
