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.

Best of Archie Comics, The (Archie and Friends All-Stars)

The Best of Archie Comics - Archie Superstars You know those moments when you find stuff in your room that relates so much to your childhood and you feel the sudden pull of nostalgia? Well, I kind of felt that way when I saw the Best of Archie Comics while I was visiting a local bookstore near where I live. Archie comics were one of the biggest influences for my reading habit... okay, scratch that, I’ll admit it somehow grown into an obsession. A good one, not a bad thing I swear (yeah, keep telling yourself that!). I started reading Archie when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It happened when our family was residing in Riyadh (my parents were OFWs back in the 90s). Since my parents had work in the middle of the day and being the kid who stays at home most of the day after school, I guess you can say I was bored (cartoons were of short supply back then and I’ve never really been much of a couch potato). One day, my dad took us to a book store. While my older brother went through the comics section for some Marvel and DC stuff, I came across some Archie Digest Magazines. I don’t know why I decided to pick them up, but when my dad asked me if I wanted to buy them I said yes without even missing a beat... and the rest is history.Yup, I have been a fan ever since my first issue and here I am, in my twenties and still haven’t outgrown it. Back then, I always thought that the issues I pleaded my dad to buy me more (I’ve been a constant whiner to get new ones after I finish each) was too small and thin. I kept complaining to myself that they were too short and they’re just not enough. Now you can probably picture how I got all crazy-eyed when I saw a 400-paged issue of Archie. Imagine Kaa (the snake from the Jungle Book, Disney cartoon) and you’ll get the idea. LOL. The Best of Archie Comics showed me how much this comic has developed in matters of story and most specially the artwork, which I never really noticed before how huge the changes it went through over the years. Also, I never really thought of how the whole Betty-Archie-Veronica love triangle started out and I’m happy to get a brief history on how it all began. I really enjoyed reading this book and the trip back to my childhood just left me very grateful for discovering Archie, because reading has definitely taken a huge part of my life. I don’t think I would have grown into the reader that I am now if I hadn’t picked up my first Archie comic and that’s something I deeply cherish.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com/
