It's coming to the end of June as I'm writing this, so it's time for my wrap-up! June really wasn't a successful reading month. I only finished reading two books as things were a bit busy It is only the 25th as I'm writing this, so this could change, but it probably won't. I've had a lot going on this month and I just haven't been in the mood to read. Basically, this is going to be quite a quick wrap-up, haha.
Let's get into it!
Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare
Date Started - 9/6/2017
Date Finished - 16/6/2017
Synopsis: If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it?
The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose.
Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.
Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.
This month I finally finished TID and woah. this trilogy has got to be my all time favourite. I love everything about this series from the writing to the characters. I was on the verge of tears throughout reading this and I did finally cry at the ending. It now means so much to me and I don't really care how late I am to reading this. I can't wait to read CoHF and see what else this world has in store.

The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
Date Started - 17/6/2017
Date Finished - 17/6/2017
Synopsis: Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella Riosse dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped.
When her closest friend disappears into the island’s Forgotten Territories, she volunteers to guide the search. As a cartographer’s daughter, she’s equipped with elaborate ink maps and knowledge of the stars, and is eager to navigate the island’s forgotten heart.
But the world beyond the walls is a monster-filled wasteland – and beneath the dry rivers and smoking mountains, a legendary fire demon is stirring from its sleep. Soon, following her map, her heart and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers the true end of her journey: to save the island itself.
My Mum actually picked this up for me when she was in Waterstones as she saw it was the winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for 2017. I went in to this without knowing too much and I honestly think that made me enjoy it more. I loved the story and how it was such a journey, physically but also the journey you see Isabella go on as she tries to deal with everything going on. She has to overcome a lot and has to face up to a lot of things. Overall, I really enjoyed the storyline and the depth to it and I'd definitely recommend it
