Judy Finnigan said: “We love to hear what people think about the titles we choose - that’s what the Book Club is all about – so please keep exchanging your own thoughts and reviews – and remember to listen to our podcast series to hear our exclusive interviews with the authors.”

The list is exclusive to WH Smith, which today also announced that I Let You Go by debut author Clare Mackintosh is the latest winning title of the readers’ vote for the summer 2015 selection.

Mackintosh said: "It has been such an honour to be part of the Richard and Judy Book Club this summer, and this is the icing on the cake. I'm thrilled to know that so many people have enjoyed my debut novel, and so grateful to everyone who voted for I Let You Go."
