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:
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:
Having not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
