Top 100 holiday reads

When we're on holiday we read in slightly different way. It could be a time to really throw yourself into a classic novel or to read something gloriously trashy without any guilt. We're big fans of 'location reading' or matching your book to the place you're travelling to. The oldest of our collection was published in 1856 (Madame Bovary) and the newest came out last July (Cathi Unsworth's Weirdo). You can follow fish around India and bath toys around the Pacific, take a good long look at Vancouver and Marrakesh or find out how it feels to have your sister elope with a ghost. We'd love to know what you think of these choices and if you do take any on holiday with you.
