- The Game of Love And Death by Martha Brockenbrough. This was such an interesting book! I really enjoyed it, but I did find it hard to get into, so 4/5 stars.
BOOKS I BOUGHT:
Okay so I didn't buy any books, but I did win an ARC of Missing by Kelley Armstrong at her book signing. However, since the book doesn't come out until April 2017, and the cover hasn't been released or anything, I won't be taking a picture of it.

As for what I've been listening to this month, nothing new. Just a lot of Cherri Bomb, 5sos, Green Day, and My Chemical Romance.
ALSO: I will be going on hiatus for around three weeks, because I'm going on holiday. I might post occasionally, but don't bank on it. I will continue to update Gearbound every Friday, however, because I'm not THAT mean as to leave ya'll wondering what happens for three weeks.
AND THAT WAS MY JUNE! WHAT WAS THE BEST/WORST BOOK YOU READ THIS MONTH? WHAT SONGS HAVE YOU BEEN LISTENING TO? ANYTHING FANDOM RELATED THAT YOUR REALLY EXCITED FOR? LET ME KNOW DOWN IN THE COMMENTS!
