Warmer weather is finally here and it varies from baking heatwave to rain and wind week-by-week; it can only mean one thing... we're in the midst of a Great British Summer!

Whatever the weather is doing, you can always transport yourself to a new world within the pages of a good book. 

Discover the multi-award-winning books Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell and Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart. Seek a summer romance with You and Me on Vacation by Emily Henry or curl up with a crime thriller with The Summer House by James Patterson.

Whatever your genre of choice, there are hundreds of options for you to enjoy all summer long!
