Ideas for summer reading

If you have the lovely prospect of some holiday reading time ahead and are looking for inspiration, The Guardian has listed its top 100 summer reads at The list is divided into fiction and non-fiction, and there's also a selection of books for children and young adults. The list recommends some old favourites as well as some relatively unknown books, and this year's top literary prize winners are included. The novels are broken down into 'page turners', 'comedy', 'alternative realities', 'modern life' and so on, and each is presented with a short summary. There really is something for everyone, although some of the more doom-laden tomes in the non-fiction list - featuring Brexit, global warming and surveillance capitalism - might not be quite the thing for your precious hours on the sun-lounger.
