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 a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
