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.

Forest Born (Books of Bayern)

Forest Born - Shannon Hale Of course, I'd never miss the 4th sequel from the Books of Bayern for anything in the world!However, I have to admit that I struggled with reading Forest Born. I read over some of the parts 2 or 3 times before moving forward just to create my own image of how it actually happens. I cannot imagine how well Shannon can picture every scene she creates with her characters.Rin, the protagonist, wasn't as captivating as Isi or Enna; but I love her gifts. I was mostly amused with Razo(as always), Tusken(I can't help but coo when I think of him), and Dasha(sweet and funny, Dasha). I think they stood out more than Rin even though this was her tale. I also kind of expected Rin to develop an insightful romance with another character, but instead it was focused mostly on her gifts that she needed to learn to control.I was pleased reading Forest Born but I don't believe it surpassed the prominence of River Secrets. I do hope there's more Books of Bayern after this. For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
