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.

Legacy Lost: A Tor.Com Original

Legacy Lost (The Syrena Legacy, #0.5) - Anna Banks Now if you’ve already read Of Poseidon by Anna Banks then I guess you’re as curious as I am about what exactly happened between Grom and Nalia before this whole feud between the Poseidon and Triton descendants’ occurred. Well, Legacy Lost is a short but interesting story about these two love birds. As usual, monarchies tend to have war between their kingdoms, leaving a royal family member from each side with the burden to resolve this conflict without shedding blood from both parties; of course the most “reasonable” answer is an arranged marriage. Grom and Nalia, both first born and third generation of their respective kingdoms, are caught up in a similar situation. The reason behind their arranged marriage though, is to preserve the gifts of the generals. I wasn’t really expecting anything too big from this prequel but I was really curious about what did trigger Nalia’s decision in Of Poseidon. I thought that it would be explained here in Legacy Lost. Unfortunately it didn’t even come close to that. It did give me the reason why Grom had gone so stoic and rather kept to himself but the main reason why I read this was to see the reason behind Nalia’s actions. Rather, this was just the story of how Nalia and Grom got together and how things ended between them. Although I found this cute, I think it was too short and a little of a crazy balance on the pacing. By crazy I mean disconnectedly in way that seems hard for me to elaborate... I don’t know, I guess since there wasn’t really much to analyze on, I didn’t bother to give it much thought either.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com/
