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 Assassin and the Underworld (Throne of Glass, #0.3)

The Assassin and the Underworld (Throne of Glass, #0.3) - Sarah J. Maas Ooooh! This just keeps getting better and better! The first two novellas of the Throne of Glass was indeed amazing adventures. Now with the Assassin and the Underworld, that idea kind of changes a bit. Of course they’re all still connected but this time Celaena’s mission is not a travel away from home but within Rifthold where she grew up and became the deadliest assassin.Celaena has just returned from her trip to the Red Desert where she trained along with the Silent Assassins. She was about to do an “in your face” moment to her master after serving her punishment with grace and dignity, but then she falters. Seeing her master apologize and be all sweet and caring, she goes soft. Ugh! This is one of those moments that I hated Celaena, she can be gullible at times. Then again I guess having that man to be the only father figure she had (at least that’s what I think of him to her, ‘coz if it was something else that would be really awkward, the guy’s way, way older than her, c’mon!) I couldn’t blame her for giving him a chance to make up for what he did to her. The Assassin and the Underworld is milder on the action part compared to the other two but doubles on the deception and betrayal experience so you won’t see me complain. Add the fact that the romance brewing between Celaena and Sam has finally come about. Yehey! I totally approve their relationship. This may be a slower story than the first two novellas but I could say this is my favorite among them. Let’s see if that’ll change when the fourth novella comes out.I’m still playing with the title of this book in my head; why is it called the Assassin and the Underworld? I mean I get the Assassin and the Pirate Lord and the Assassin and the Desert, they both speak for themselves but Underworld? I expected it to be the mythological thing we commonly know and not the… sewer? O well, at least we had a good story out of it. And the scene where Sam desperately wanted to save Celaena when she got locked there… Priceless!
