One in three Brits have turned to reading since March, with paperback book sales jumping through the roof during lockdown according to The Reading Agency. However, with bookshops and libraries closed, finding enough reading material can be challenging. Thankfully for bookworms, supermarket Aldi has announced its first ever Summer Reading range filled with great reads at everyday prices.
The range is available to pick up in stores from 7th June, as well as available order online from 4th June.
Aldi’s Summer Reading range has something for all the family. From chilling thrillers and nail-biting crime dramas for Mum and Dad and paperbacks perfect for book-obsessed teens to reimagined Disney classics and Marvel-inspired tales to keep the kids entertained. Shoppers can expect to see the latest reads from much loved and best-selling writers such as Antony Horowitz and Dawn French all available for just £2.99, ideal for whiling away a warm summer’s evening.
Aldi’s Summer Reading range also includes five reimagined Disney classics full of loveable characters from the big screen, and at only £1.99, are just the thing for a bedtime story or the little one’s first steps to independent reading. Kids can dive into new tales from their favourite characters from the silver screen such as Frozen’s Anna and Else and Moana or engross themselves in books featuring heroes from the blockbuster Marvel franchise. Choose from Belle, The Brave Princess, Anna, Elsa and the Secret River and Moana and the Ocean to Night Night, Groot and Grow up, Ant-Man!
Highlights from the range include:
Those Other Woman – Nicola Moriarty
Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies described this psychological thriller as “A firecracker of a novel…”. Those who enjoyed the hit TV show, are guaranteed to be tearing through this.
According to Yes – Dawn French
Inspired by Dawn French’s short-lived role as a nanny in New York, the comedienne’s latest novel is as funny as her. As the story begins with the female protagonist, Rosie Kittow running away, we can’t help but relate to her new mantra to say ‘YES’ to everything.
One Thousand Stars and You – Isabelle Broom
We follow Alice, a relatively relatable character that is having her last hurrah in Sri Lanka before she settles down for good. Once we land in the colourful country, we meet Max who puts life into perspective. A heart-warming and heart-breaking read and if you didn’t have Sri Lanka on your places to go, you will do after this.
The Futures – Anna Pitoniak
Like many people, the lovers in this story are as much in love with New York as they are with each other. But will New York bring them together, or tear them apart? An authentic young love story of those balancing relationships and work, an all too familiar problem we’ve all dealt with.
The House Across the Street – Lesley Pearse
We’re transported back to 1964 and how a very normal looking street has unravelled an abundance of secrets. Harmless peeping of the glamorous neighbour Gloria soon turns sinister as young Katy Speed’s father is charged with her murder and it’s up to Katy to uncover the facts.
Forever and a Day – Anthony Horowitz
Horowitz’ second official Bond novel, we meet Mr Bond before he became the infamous 007 and follow him on his first espionage with a villainous encounter in none other than the glamourous shores of the South of France.
The Death of Mrs Westaway – Ruth Ware
Hailed as the Agatha Christie of the 21st Century, Ruth Ware takes readers on an unusual adventure where we’re faced with being on the side of the crook rather than the victim.
Trust Me – Anna Ryan
Published under a pseudonym for an Emmy-award winning investigative journalist, readers will be sitting at the edge of their seat whilst delving into a case inspired by real-life events experienced by Hank Phillipi Ryan.
The Innocent Wife – Amy Lloyd
An immediate page turner, you will not want to put this book down. A gripping modern thriller that combines true crime documentaries with the fickleness of the giant social media has become today.
A Stranger in the House – Shari Lapena
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door, Shari Lapena has done it once again by providing her fans with an intriguing and suspenseful thriller.
