A Month in Books - July 2017


My July reading tally is sixteen books including the new David Grossman novel, A Horse Walks Into A Bar, which surprised me with its brilliance, and Paule Marshall's 1950s masterpiece Brown Girl, Brownstones. I added a third book to my Jane Austen Challenge 2017 and started the month with a special book for Plastic Free July. Plus I blogged five books authored by American women for July's WorldReads.

Literary Flits hosted two Guest Reviews this month. If you have an indie author, small press or global literature book review that you would like to share please do get in touch. It doesn't need to be exclusive content and you can check here to see if a book has already been reviewed. I look forward to hearing from you!

Do also get in touch if you want a Spotlight post. These are just £2.50 each and allow authors to showcase their own book to my Literary Flits audience. Further details through This Link. You could win a Spotlight post by following me and retweeting my pinned tweet on Twitter! June's winner was Kelly Florentia who chose to promote her novel The Magic Touch.

Keep up daily on Literary Flits or I will see you here at the end of the month for another round up.
