The 50 best summer reads

Big Girl by Danielle Steele
This is Arifa's suggestion for the beach or the plane this summer. Two sisters, one large one - although in Steele's world this is a mere 10 to 15lbs overweight - and one perfect one. A story about self-acceptance.
Publisher Corgi
How much £7.99
The Butterfly Isles by Patricia Barkham
'A quintessential summer read that follows one man's quest to see all 60 species of British butterfly in one summer,' says Greg Eden. 'Informed, inspirational and occasionally deeply personal, this is a lovely piece of natural history writing.'
Publisher Granta Books
How much £9.99
Victory by Joseph Conrad
'The best introduction to Conrad,' says David. 'A romance and thriller set on an island that ends with, essentially, a shoot-out on the sand. It's sublime.'
Publisher Penguin
How much £6.99
