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.

Bloodrose (Nightshade Series #3)

Bloodrose - Andrea Cremer Alas! We’ve come to the end of the Nightshade series. I’m surely going to miss Calla and the rest of the guardians. Bloodrose, the third instalment of the Nightshade series, is definitely a breath taking book. It’s full of adventure, suspense, and romance and I loved every page and scene… except for one in particular which I believe a lot of team Ren members out there would definitely agree that that part was really an oh-you-didn’t-just-do-that-to-Ren moment. I’m not really torn over the Ren-Calla-Shay love triangle because I think I found it obvious that the author was already reeling the romance bit between Calla and Shay. So am I happy about Calla being with Shay? Up until the end of this series, I still don’t know. It’s just not something I found myself thinking about. I guess I just settled in with what the author provided and just went with the story. Plus, I guess I was so focused on the mythology and history of this book that I hardly noticed whom would fit better with Calla as a co-alpha. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Well, you decide. Anyway, speaking of mythology and history, I’ve got to hand it to Andrea Cremer for such a unique creation. I mean I can’t imagine how much research and devising she had to go through to create something so artistic and beautiful! Did I mention that I love the action and adventure? Well, let’s get into the details. So Shay’s supposed to find all the pieces to assemble the Elemental Cross, and of course the task comes with going into restricted and dangerous territories which eventually have booby-traps, puzzles, killer-guards and all that riff-raff. I thought this was going to bore me out because I was thinking that the obstacles were going to be not so surprising. You can’t possibly make the obstacles any different from the usual ones we see on TV, right? This is one of those moments that I’m thankful I was wrong. Another round of applause for Cremer please because that was one heck of an adventure! Every area the characters went to really tested their abilities and there’s not a time that I didn’t feel my heart pound with tension and excitement. So I guess you can say that I loved this book… yes, but not entirely. The surprise by the ending wore me out a bit. It wasn’t something I expected but in a sense I guess that part was fitting to the story, and I’m glad to see many of them happy. Still not okay with the Ren part though… *shakes head in dismay* The verdict: Two thumbs up! If you’re looking for a unique and action-packed series, the Nightshade books are your best bet.
