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

I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude
