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.

The Faerie Ring

The Faerie Ring - I enjoyed reading this book. It has everything I look for in a novel. There’s thrilling adventure, intriguing events, mystery, romance and likeable characters.Our heroine, Tiki, reminds me a lot of Robin Hood and it’s cute to have a protagonist in an occupation that would usually be considered a villain’s job, thievery isn’t really seen righteous, right? But nonetheless, once you find out how she ended up in that life, add the fact that she has this strong maternal instinct to take care of orphans, just makes readers like her more. The Faerie Ring will keep you wondering about a lot of things; what’s behind Tiki’s strange birthmark? Who is Rieker and what does he have to do with all of this? What’s the deal with ring and the royals? You head will be swimming with questions with each chapter.I have a few problems with this book though. I didn’t buy the part where the orphans got to purchase a gown to wear when they scarcely had money to buy food, not to mention that one of them was sick and needed medicine. Also, I assumed this was a book with faeries involved but there really wasn’t much of them in it; just maybe an appearance here and there, then a burst of them in the ending, but for someone who adores stories of faeries, I want more. Overall, I think The Faerie Ring is a good book and a great debut novel for Kiki Hamilton. It’s not exactly one of my favorites but I was not disappointed with the adventure that the characters rode into but I hope with her next book, I’d see more faeries and a much, more exciting adventure.
