Summer Read reveals 2010 shortlist

15th June 2010

The eight books that will constitute More4's Summer Read have been announced.

Kathryn Stockett's The Help, The Man Who Disappeared by Clare Morrall, Katherine Webb's The Legacy and The Bed I Made by Lucie Whitehouse will feature on the show, which is the seasonal spin-off of the TV Book Club.

Other titles to be included in the series are Stone's Fall by Iain Pears, Kate Kerrigan's Ellis Island, The Devil's Acre by Matthew Plampin and Heather Gudenkauf's The Weight of Silence.

Amanda Ross, managing director of Cactus TV, which produces the series, said she is passionate about choosing the right books for the show, although she claimed the process becomes more challenging each year.

She added: 'The Summer Read list is all about pleasure; a book can make or break your holiday. I'm confident that we are delivering one of our most gripping shortlists to date, guaranteed to keep readers entertained whatever the weather.'

The series will start on June 27th and be presented by Jo Brand and Dave Spikey, while a number of celebrity guests will appear each week.

Cactus TV also produces the ITV3 Crime Thriller Awards, which seek to recognise the best modern crime fiction.
