Stylist’s ten best reads for the bank holiday weekend

This week, Stylist is on a print break - you may have noticed the magazine wasn't available at stations yesterday. But, never wanting our readers to miss out, we have created a special digital-only edition, based around one of our favourite topics: books.

The heart of this edition is a mammoth list of 100 hottest books to read this summer, with something for everyone, from thrillers to travel fiction to historical fiction. To give you a little teaser, we've pulled out a favourite from each of these categories to start you off.

To read the whole list, download the issue now at app.stylist.co.uk
