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.

Love Story

Love Story - Jennifer Echols I really got to hand it to Jennifer Echols; her books never fail to catch my interest. Like the other books I’ve read from her, Love Story was a definite page-turner. It’s a light romantic novel with a very nice plot that’ll leave you wanting to read more.I do have to admit that compared to Forget You and Going Too Far, Love Story is on the mellow side. There are several elements that I liked about this book. I particularly like the setting, which is finally not introduced in High School! Seriously, a lot of Young Adult books are commonly set in High School and it just makes me feel soooo old! LOL. I also like the “Battle of the Writers” kind of situation between Erin and Hunter. The side stories written within the book was a very nice touch as well.I wasn’t really in love with the characters like I used to with Echols’ other books, but I didn’t hate them either. It was just bothersome to see them both beat around the bush when it’s so obvious they like each other. But I guess that’s the beauty of this book, you get to the characters actually develop into a relationship rather than the love-at-first-sight cliché.The one thing I was disappointed about was the ending. It’s not really what I expected. I feel like there were a lot of unfinished businesses with Erin’s relationship with Hunter and most especially the feud between Erin and her grandmother. I get the Love Story bit in the end, but I just wanted things left settled already.Even though Love Story isn’t a standout for me, I still enjoyed reading it and I remain a fan of Echols’ books. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for readers next.
