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.

Beautiful Creatures (Beautiful Creatures Series #1)

Beautiful Creatures  - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia Beautiful Creatures was written, shall we say, “Beautifully”. Garcia and Stolh’s writing technique really made this paranormal romance book into an immense page-turner. It was a catchy read, so now I know why it became widely popular. The plot was good; a bit stereotypical, it was somehow Twilight-ish only with a caster goth rather than a vampire. I like the mystery in it. I like how the anonymities unravelled and how it was sequentially revealed in the right moment at the right time. Moving on to the characters; Ethan mostly reminded me of Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. He was obviously created and moulded from a girl’s imagination, but compared to Sam; Ethan is manlier and less emo. Lena is, well, not much of memorable character. First, she was weird, next she’s in full-paranoia, then suddenly sarcastically annoying. She’s practically crazy, but then she has this gooey, girly mind where she wants to go to the prom, receive jewellery as gifts, etc and that was funny. I mostly like the minor characters, Ridley and Link. Link is hilarious, while Ridley may seem like a bitch on the outside but a sensible and caring person on the inside. They were fascinating and intriguing.Overall, the book was good. I like how well it was created and it was enjoyable despite a bit of cliché in some events.
