Channel's 4's TV Book Club has released a list of eight must-read summer titles ahead of the programme's return to the small screen.
The show, which features a celebrity panel of reviewers including Jo Brand and Ade Edmondson and is viewed by over three million people, has recommended The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson and Dennis Lehane's Moonlight Mile in its Summer Read campaign.
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, Kristin Hannah's Night Road, The Book of Human Skin by Michelle Lovric and Camilla Lackberg's The Hidden Child are also recommended.
The list is completed by Emma Henderson's Grace Williams Says It Loud and The Radleys by Matt Haig.
Amanda Ross, creator of the TV Book Club, said being featured on the Summer Read list can turn a good book into a bestseller.
'We trawl all the new books published to ensure we're introducing our 3.5 million audience of book lovers to great quality books. They trust us, and certainly won't be disappointed with this year's Summer Reads,' she added.
