Hit Em Up - Jus Blaze (book review)


Book: Hit Em Up
Author: Jus Blaze
Genre: Action, Crime
Published By: N/A
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Having been sent a copy of this book and not knowing much about it I was excited to discover a new book and one that sounded different from the books in which I normally pick up. As a result I gave this a read and it surprised me with how much I ended up enjoying this book.

Hit Em Up is a novel which is abut a group of three friends who after one of their pregnant sister's gets murdered is determined to get revenge upon them.While doing this the mafia in which he is taking on is trying to find him and kill him before he gets real damage done.

I thought that this book was a good read and I liked how this was fast paced which did keep me interested throughout it. I also found that this book stayed on topic throughout and all the information within it was relevant for the book which is something that I did like as it helped to show more of the characters and discover more about them and what motivates them while keeping the reader wanting to know what was going to happen next. The violence in which was written in the book was also well done and I liked how the main villain of the book loved the violence in which she was committing and how much she enjoyed it as it helped to show just how evil her character was, reading some of her past in the book however does make you understand why she does love the power she has and why she is so determined to keep it.

However, I didn't like the language that was used in some of the book such as the word which I thought was overused and made me feel rather uncomfortable reading it. This did also annoy me as it felt like certain language was overused and not for any specific reason other than to be there. Not only this but some of the structure towards the end of the book didn't really make sense and with grammar and wrong words in place it did leave me a little lost at times towards the ending.

Overall, this was a good book however and one that I am thankful to have read. As it isn't my usual style it was good to read out of my usual comfort zone and a book I did enjoy and will need to read more of the gang/crime genre. I would recommend this book to those who are looking for a crime novel to read which doesn't involve higher authority. This is a book personally I wouldn't read again but it was something in which I did enjoy even though it did make me rather uncomfortable at times.



My Rating: 3/5

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
