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 Human (The Eden Trilogy, #2)

The Human - Keary Taylor I was highly impressed by Keary Taylor’s The Bane, the first book in the Eden Trilogy, so when I received an invite for a chance to read an ARC of book two, The Human, I immediately jumped for the opportunity. Who wouldn’t want to get the chance to view stories they enjoyed firsthand before its release?Apart from the impressive predecessor, I was intrigued with The Human because of its cover. Ever since I saw it, I was curious to find out why Eve had a shaved head. Last time I checked she had long blond hair, and now it’s gone – what gives?The Human starts off rather slower than The Bane. Just like Eve, I was used to her and the people of New Eden constantly have their guards up and tense at protecting themselves from the Bane. Now that the people are trying to re-establish a semblance of normal life before TorBane came about, Eve has nothing to do, and it’s making her depressed without her knowledge since emotions are relatively new to her. It’s a good thing she has Avian. I don’t think Eve can handle such without someone supporting her, also considering she’s still suffering from guilt over what happened to West, it really is a lot to take in for someone like her. Speaking of Avian and West, I have to say this is one messy love triangle. Not that there are any non-messy ones but this whole Avian-Eve-West love affair puts a lot of the others to shame. Although I find West a jerk here, I can’t blame him for being bitter. In the first book, we have the killing machines called the Bane as our antagonists. Here, we have a group of humans, from another part of the country, who causes the harm. Wow... this woman who leads them is even worse than the Bane. At least the machines had an excuse for being killers. They are emotionless and corrupted beyond repair. Unlike this woman, she may have gone through hell, but her actions make her less human than the Bane. I would have been all glad to see her die a horrible death, especially after what she’s done to Eve. Oh, poor, poor Eve. It already sucked that she was experimented on while she was young, for it to happen again is awfully cruel! *sniff* Although The Human takes a lot longer to get exciting, it’s just as eventful and as action-packed as the first. Just when I thought I already knew everything about Eve, here comes another revelation that makes me asks another series of questions. Also, is it just me or does Eve have a knack for passing out several times in each book? Bet you it’ll happen in The Eve, the third book, as well. :PEven if this book ended with a cliff-hanger [which was unexpected since Keary didn’t end The Bane in such a way], I’m looking forward to seeing how Eve would finally save the human race. *Thank you, Ms. Keary Taylor for the copy of The Human.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
