This month I've made a few changes to my regular blogging practices which has restoked my enthusiasm so I'm especially happy about that. Starting to add a bookishly inspired Etsy Find to each of my Literary Flits book posts is fun and I'm loving wasting loads of time browsing that site for items from around the world. For example, for my Macbeth by Jo Nesbo book review, I found handmade Out Damned Spot soap made by The Mac Bath in Ohio!
Regular blog series:
In June I blogged Bookish Bingo and State of the ARC updates as well as a Cover Characteristics collection featuring Dogs. My 5 Books, 1 Theme quintet are all Road Trip novels to, maybe, inspire your summer holiday adventures. WorldReads featured books from Syria and I will be 'visiting' Portugal for August's WorldReads on the 5th. Unfortunately I haven't got around to reading my most recent Books From The Backlog yet so that's taken a back seat for a while.
Now, on with this Reading Roundup!

My Book Of The Month for July could have been The Murmur Of Bees by Sofia Segovia or Razia by Abda Khan, but after some deliberation I plumped for the first of my three five star reads this month: Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke
