Book Review: Until The Death of Me by Shaunessy Blu


I usually don't read Street Lit, but I have to say that I enjoyed reading this. So much so that I went right on to the next book, because I just had to know what happened!

We have the main character Asha. A good person who just happened to have children with the absolute wrong man.

Then we have Prodigy whose a street boss with a good heart, and he wants to get out of the game.

It's a like/strongly dislike for me with the character Izaak. He rubbed me the wrong way, but he had some, if very few, ok qualities about him.

The book takes place in the projects of Illinois. It's written from the point of view of just about every character in the book, which is a nice setup to help the story move along.

Asha is awesome in the beginning. She has two kids and two jobs, and is an all around hard worker to make sure her and her babies get by. The father of her children, Brian, is beyond a total scumbag. Both physical and verbal abuse. I don't see how she put up with it for as long as she did! Her character is strong, and prideful.

Prodigy saves her when she is getting pounded on in public by Brian. Prodigy is the man your Mama tell you to stay away from, and on the other side of the coin, he's also the man you want to bring home to Mama. If that makes sense 😁 Drug dealer, but educated. Helps in the community. Good guy dealt a lifestyle he knows since being a kid.

So, Asha and Prodigy are the two main love interests, but it doesn't stop there. The love triangles in this one is a doozy. Does money and a good lifestyle really make people completely 180 their personality?  Do genes really run that deep? Can Asha and Prodigy maintain their love while he's in prison? The ending kept me guessing, because I thought for sure he wasn't the murderer! I didn't even feel like he had it in him to kill.

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
