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.

Nobody's Princess (Princesses of Myth Series)

Nobody's Princess (Nobody's Princess, #1) - Esther M. Friesner Nobody’s Princess a fresh new intake on Helen’s life. Yes, that Helen; the face that launched a thousand ships. The girl who lead two capitals to war and lead men to their deaths. But this story is set before this all happened of course. Readers are introduced to our heroine, Helen. A spontaneous and temperamental girl who wants to do more than just sit and embroider, and other lady-like work, she wants to go out to and explore the world and do what men are only supposed to do like hunt and use swords.At first I felt like the book was a bit stereotypical, being very sexist and all but I guess that’s what the author was trying to portray. And the situation seemed vital to the idea that Helen wants to break free from the categorizing of what men and women should do. I like Helen. She’s not exactly the kind of person who follows the rules and during her time, she’s seen as a girl with too much spunk that is deemed unladylike. Although I noticed that there are several chapters where her voice seemed too mature for her age. There were times that she feels a bit too fictitious and yet there are times that her sarcasm and wittiness just makes me adore her.There really isn’t much to go around with Nobody’s Princess. I liked the story and the sense of adventure, along with the knowledge about the gods and goddesses, but I have to say that it’s not much of a standout. It was good but I guess it wasn’t as groundbreaking as I expected.
