Summer is a time when some go travelling, so we have selected the perfect books that can transport a reader somewhere else even if they’re not going away. On the list we have a fantasy book based on African history and mythology, a non-fiction book tracing the Ottoman Empire and a sizzling holiday love story to help transport you on some exciting journeys this summer. Tell us what you thought of any of the books on the list by tagging us on social media using #booklist and tagging @readingagency!

And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
