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.

An Uncertain Choice - Jody Hedlund
Courage can be displayed in many forms, my lord… Sometimes it’s evident in the knight charging forward with the lance on his steed. But perhaps it can also take the form of a head bowed before the enemy.

It’s a fairy tale. What more could I ask for?

As much as I appreciate author’s reimagining my favorite classical fairy tales, it’s refreshing to see original writings just as well. Lately though, I find myself reading so-so stories in the category. So how lovely was it to find this book?

An Uncertain Choice was one huge surprise for me. It was one of those books I least expected to be as good as it was. Set in the medieval times, Lady Rosemarie’s story of faith and finding true love was well worth the time reading.

Although I have to admit that it was quite predictable, the author’s writing style enabled me to enjoy the tale in spite of already knowing who’s who and what’s what. There is something about her writing that made this simple story an absolute page-turner.

Filled with every cliché one reader might think of: a beautiful princess, a knight in shining armor, a deceiving villain lurking on the side, An Uncertain Choice is every bit the fairy tale one might find simply blah. But Jody Hedlund sure knows how to write an invigorating story, and an original fairy tale at that!

*Thank you, Zonderkids and NetGalley for granting my request to view An Uncertain Choice.
