Now that summer is here, it is time to start thinking about your summer holiday reading. And, when it comes to deciding what books to take on holiday for most of us that means looking for books to download to our eReader.

The great thing about electronic readers like the Kindle, Nook and other tablet devices is that we don’t have to worry so much about the weight of books in our luggage.

The next question is deciding which books to will make it on to our Summer Holiday Reading list.

This is Part 1 of a two-part series of my summer reading suggestions. The focus today is on fiction. Part 2 will focus on non-fiction:

The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes. A time travelling serial killer and a victim that would not die.

Deny Me Not by Margaret Hawkins. An Irish novel about secret babies and the people who make them.

The Moment by Douglas Kennedy.  Bittersweet love when ‘happenstance’ brings a man and woman together.

Three Graves Full by Jamie Mason. It can be awkward when there are bodies buried in your garden.

Amity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley. Escaping from a cult is just the beginning.

Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge. A woman wakes in cold water with no memory of who she is or how she got there.

The Racketeer by John Grisham. Legal thriller about a lawyer who uses information about the killing of a judge to trade his way out of jail.

A Possible Life by Sebastian Faulks. A collection of five related stories exploring what makes and shapes human lives.

Whatever you choose, it is worth bearing in mind that sand, sea and sunlight can get in the way of reading eBooks so having a standby paperback or two might still be worth considering. And the great thing about print is that the battery never runs out.

Happy reading!
