Camp Nano is nearly over! :(

With the end of the month nearing closer and that 50,000 mark only about a thousand words away i thought i'd share with you guys a really important extract in my book, mostly because it is one of the most important parts so it needs to be just right, it is a very touchy subject too but I argued with myself on whether to include it and it is just way to influentional to my charecters to not be included, so I'm hoping that you haven't already got bored and decided not to help me as I'd love it if I could get some feedback on it. Here it is:) :

She laughed and we left the ally way slowly being sure to not draw any attention to ourselves in the process. I gave Elsie my jacket so she could hide her dress, it looked too much like the swing kids and they'd spot us a mile away. She held my hand tightly the whole way home; I kept praying that none of the SS would spot us or at least that I wouldn’t see Josef lurking around, but my prayers weren’t answered just as we turned around a corner we saw Josef with some young teenage girl who he had pinned against the wall, I could hear her crying and I looked at Elsie quickly, I knew she was going to say something and Josef hadn’t noticed us yet so I covered her mouth with my hand and pulled her back round the corner, I could hear her making small screams for the girl who was with Josef, I knew exactly what was happening behind the corner, I remember Josef bragging about it to me when we were just teenagers.
“She was helpless” He would tell me “Couldn’t even stop me, she hardly even put up a  fight everything worked out perfectly, and I got exactly what I wanted.”
I listened to Josef around the corner as he attempted to get what he wanted from her.
“You’re just a worthless Jew, this is your fault that I have to do this to you, you forced me to.” Josef shouted at the girl.
She begged for mercy for him to just take her to the gestapo but he wasn’t listening to her, there was only one thing he wanted from her and he wasn’t going to let her go without getting it. We had to stay there while he violently violated the girl, I had to keep my hand over Elsie’s mouth as it happened, and she kept covering her ears trying to block the girl’s screams out. She was obviously failing as I felt her tears dropping on my hand. Every now and then she’d try to get away from me, to go help the girl but I held her back because I knew that if she did, She kicked me a few times in the crotch but I kept holding onto her through the pain, she wouldn’t save that girl, she’d just get herself into the same position.
After Josef had gotten what he wanted from the girl I heard him throw her to the floor.
“That’s the only thing you’re good for, remember that when the gestapo get hold of you.”
When I was confident that he’d left I let go of Elsie and she ran around the corner as quickly as she could and sat by the girl’s side, who even though she didn’t know who Elsie was still took hold of her and cried big tears onto her stomach.

Hope you like it and please it would be incredibly helpful if you could leave some feedback in the comments:)

Book Review: The Hunger Games - Catching fire.

I finished catching fire and have moved onto Mocking jay. So here's the review for you. if you haven't read the first Hunger games book you may not want to read this as there will be spoilers.Here's the cover:

So Katniss and Peeta have escaped the Games the first time, but not without recieveing capitol's hatred for the both of them, they are about to go on their victory tour when president snow warns Katniss that if she can't convince everyone that she acted of love for Peeta that everyone she loves will be killed, because she has set off something that she can't even comprehend ending - A rebellion against Capitol in most districts.
Every part of this book shocked me and made me want to read more, Everything right up until the end was Amazing and I would recommend this book to anyone ( especially those who have read the first one) I liked it so much that i hunted around my house for an hour after i finished it for the third one. This Trilogy is defiantly my favorite even though it isn't the type of thing that i normally read and i can't wait to see how they put it into the film.

  1. If adventure beckoned, would you accept gladly or decline the offer?                                                                  I'm a wuss so i'd probally say I would decline

  4. Are you intuitive (follow your gut feeling and inner self) or sensing (follow your senses to what is logical)?                                                                                                                                        Sensing
  5. What do you want to be as an adult and why?                                                                                 Well in a perfect world i'd make a living as an Author but Author/Journalist will do:)
  6. If you had to choose when you die, when would it be?                                                               When i'm old and have lived a long and happy life:)
  7. After you choose when, how would you prefer to die (gosh, this is morbid of me...maybe I AM crazy!) D:                                                                                                                           In any painless way... i hate pain:(
  8. What is your favorite mythological creature?                                                                               Unicorn! ( which is weird as i'm scared of horses...hmmm)
  9. Do you have a unique talent or feature? What is it and do you like it?                                         I don't know, i guess writing could class and if it does then i love it.
  10. Are you excited to make up your own questions? (It's harder than it looks)                                                        No i'm really not, i can't think

Book Review: The Hunger Games


To start this post i'm going to do a little bit of bragging about Camp Nanowrimo, I've kept to my daily word count every day and am now up to 19922 words in just 12 days - I'm so proud and i'm really enjoying the experience too. Anyway on to the review. Here's the Cover:

I finished the first of the Hunger games trilogy only about an hour ago and i was so excited that I ran to my nearest Asda's and bought the next two because I couldn't wait till tomorrow to get them! I'm sure all of you already know what it's about but I'll tell you anyway.
When the annual hunger game's reaping day comes Katniss everdeen didn't ever think that her or her little sister would get picked to be tribute but when Prim does get picked even though she only has one entry Katniss wastes no time to volunteer herself in Prim's place, she promises Prim that she will try to win for her and with her fellow Tribute Peeta attempts to get sponsers and survive capitols annual torture.
I seriously could not put this book down, Every time i ficked the page the words made me feel exactly as I imagined Katniss to feel, from the fauxmance to the fear every little bit draws you in and leaves you guessing until the very last page, the will she survive aspect of it keeps the suspence going until the last chapter and leaves you wanting to read the next book!
I would 100% recomend this book and I really could not say anything bad about it.
