The best reads for summer unveiled in Richard and Judy’s WHSmith Book Club list
S ummer reads, beach reads, holiday reads … at this time of year, the publishing world works itself into a sweat trying to force its novels into our carry-on luggage, or over the ether on to our Kindles. There are more books sold in the summer than during any other season: the well-established publishing calendar tends to see hardbacks released in the autumn to be given as gifts at Christmas, then repackaged as paperbacks in late spring. Generic labels, though, are the terms that booksellers and publishers think in and for literary novels, the chances of summer success are still relatively slim. Tom Tivnan, managing editor of the Bookseller , points to Nielsen BookScan data that shows that of the top bestselling summer fiction titles in only seven were literary books. Precise numbers for previous decades are hard to come by, but in the s, for example, it was almost unheard of for a literary novel to cross over into the mainstream.
