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.

Belle: A Retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" (Once Upon a Time (Simon Pulse))

Belle: A Retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" - Cameron Dokey, Mahlon F. Craft, Renato Alarcao Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” has always been my favorite cartoon of all time. Seriously, up until now at my age, I still cry at the ending when I watch it. Ha! Ha!So, when I saw this book and realized that it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, I was excited to know how this would spin around.Well, it was really good and the story was, like, really there: Sad goodbyes to Belle’s family; Sweet moment with the Beast; Lovely new twist with that Love-Tree and its secret. I was already filled with wonder and amusement. But then there were the flat, dull moments. The anticipation of waiting for Belle to reach the Beast and her somehow naive denial over her feelings for Beast where I felt puzzled then just simply annoyed.But even with all that, still, by the ending I cried. It was a bit tacky and too fast but a nice retelling nonetheless.
