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.

Wondrous Strange

Wondrous Strange - Lesley Livingston I first saw Wondrous Strange on the net while searching for good YA books to read. As soon as I read the excerpt, and being a sucker for faerie books, I just had to get a copy.When I finally got the chance; well, I like the story. But I did not love it as much as the other faerie books i've read. First of all, I have to admit that there are a lot of faerie books out now that start off with a long lost faerie princess thing and it wore me down a bit. However, I like how this turned out to be, because usually, faerie princess I've read are half-human and half-faerie. Finding Kelley on the deeper side of the Faerie Realm made it far interesting. I admire Lesley Livingston's manner of making even the minor characters stand memorable roles throughout the story. I was also delighted to see Lesley incorporating the classics and looping a little mythology into her book, where in fact that the Janus Guards(by Janus, being my name - loved that one! and Janus in mythology, the God of Doors and Gates), absolutely true to their roles and the name itself, guarded the gates between the mortal world and the faerie world. Overall I enjoyed reading this book. The writing was striking, the characters were most likely REAL; one of the few books in which characters had real reactions & emotions towards what they face. A great debut novel! ^^For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
