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.

Prophet: A Tor.Com Original

Prophet (Struck, #0.5) - Jennifer Bosworth I struggled with reading Struck by Jennifer Bosworth, so I thought maybe reading Prophet after was a good idea to help me appreciate it more. These were the moments when I thought I just didn’t get the whole thought behind the story of Struck. Seeing Prophet, I thought to myself: “Hey! Maybe this’ll help me get to know Rance Ridley and why he’s so villain-ish (Not a word, I know. I tried using ‘evil’ but he doesn’t fit the word exactly).”Anyway, so I read through Prophet. I couldn’t help but notice that Rance too had the same “insta-love” occurrence as Jeremy and Mia had in Struck... and I still can’t get the idea of the romance. Bummer! Is it just me or is there really something off about how it all happened?Now trying to be as optimistic as I can, I let it go; maybe I’ll see where all his bitterness came from because of that puppy-love thing he had. Sadly after more or less 30 pages, the story ended with him getting struck by lighting and onto his condition of having cataracts and presented with a ‘gift’. Now where the heck was the “getting to know Rance Ridley” part? I get that he lost someone dearly, but it really didn’t help me understand Rance Ridley. It’s hard to feel any empathy towards characters when you really don’t get to know anything them in a deeper sense. I know this is just a prequel and it was expected to be a little vague and short on details... but perhaps this has gone a little overboard with its ambiguity.
