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.

“I’m a type A girl. I prefer things color-coded, organized and within my control. Unfortunately, sometimes life sucks, and it rarely goes according to plan.”
I’ve always looked at Rachel Harris’ My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century as a light read. The contemporary time travel was interesting but there never was much to think about it other than watching the characters develop and learn some valuable life lessons.
I guess that is why I find My Not Super Sweet Life (what’s with the long titles by the way?) quite surprising since it brought about a factor in Cat and Lucas’ relationship that I never considered in the first and second books from the series. I mean I know Cat had issues, but I never thought things were just as complicated on Lucas’ side. I also thought that, after Cat went time travelling, she was content with the case she has with her biological mother. So I really didn’t think it was necessary to build a story that is this book. I couldn’t be more wrong.
I can’t help but feel that Cat reminds me of a part of myself once in a while. That line (quoted above) just stung a bit since just a few weeks ago, I’ve been my worst obsessive-compulsive self. That’s kind of a long story but it involved a wedding [mine], last minute arrangements, and some not-so-helpful people, which brought about, well… bridezilla. Not a pretty picture. So, when Cat was having her meltdowns, even though I cringe over the way she acts, I can’t help but empathize.
It’s a really sweet story. Although no time travelling occurred for our protagonists, which I must say I am missing, readers still get to see another issue in Cat’s life unfold and yet again bring about another growth to her character.
While I love Cat and Lucas and I’m happy with how things went on for them, I am much rather interested in another character that was introduced in this book. And judging by that epilogue, I believe we have a male protagonist for the next book… there is a next book, right?
*Thank you, Entangled Teen and Netgalley for allowing me to view My Not So Super Sweet Life.
