The summer holidays; when that dusty pile of books on your bedside table finally stands a chance of being read.
On offer this year is an eclectic mix; from romance and gripping thrillers to historical accounts and apocalyptic imaginings that will have you glued to your deck chair.
So, if your suitcase is feeling a little light, your bookshelves a little sparse and your kindle scarily empty, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve hand-picked the best reads of the summer – including Harper Lee’s sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, an adult Princess Diaries and, if you’re feeling cheeky, the new Fifty Shades book.
There are so many to choose from, you might just want to consider booking a longer holiday...
