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.

Heist Society (Heist Society Novels)

Heist Society - Ally Carter I read this book because I wanted a break from all the dark, brooding, thick books I’ve been reading for the past weeks. Since I noticed that this book had only less than 300 pages, and the premise seemed really interesting, I gave it a shot. Who would’ve thought I’d come to enjoy it so much!Ally Carter has mad writing skills! A great plot, charming characters and well execution made this book a real standout for me. I kind of want to see more of the characters in this book since I feel like I didn’t get a lot more time to get to know them better. For instance, Kat is a character that I want to get to know even more. She’s cunning and one of the best thieves around but I like that despite how well she is on this; she wants something more of a normal and lawful life. And yet she’s the type of person who cares about her family very much. Even with all that, I feel like there’s got to be more to her that I’d appreciate greatly. I also want to see more of the Hale/Kat relationship. I hated that I didn’t see anything more than them just holding each other’s hands when it’s obvious there’s chemistry between them. I don’t know much of paintings and the artists behind them but I like the fact that I learned something new from this book. Heist Society was a really fun book to read. It was cute, light and engaging, not to mention witty! I also enjoyed the fact that Kat and the other thieves get to travel to and fro around the globe and I’d like to see more of what’s in store for Kat. I’m sure there are a lot more jet setting to go around, new plan-of-actions to come up with, and more priceless art to steal.
