The Silence of the Lambs (Hannibal Lecter)
2.  The Silence of the Lambs (Hannibal Lecter) by Thomas Harris

The Secret Life of Bees
3.  The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (482 customer reviews)

Lola Rose
4.  Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson

Clarice Bean: Clarice Bean, Utterly Me
5.  Clarice Bean: Clarice Bean, Utterly Me by Lauren Child
The list author says:
  "Bright, colourful, funny, witty. I wish I'd written it. I will definitely be reading more of Lauren Child's books."
£5.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

The Comfort Of Strangers
6.  The Comfort Of Strangers by Ian McEwan
The list author says:
  "Dark, unsettling, short. The setting is described wonderfully and McEwan captures the Meditteranean feel very well, but the ending is a bit random in my opinion."
£5.99   Used & New from: £0.01
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

I Don't Know How She Does it
7.  I Don't Know How She Does it by Allison Pearson
The list author says:
  "Terrible. Contrived, irritating chick-lit. Yuck. How many contemporary references can you cram into a paragraph??? Hated the protagonist, didn't care about her life one bit."
Used & New from: £0.01

The Lovely Bones
8.  The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
The list author says:

Eats shoots and leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
9.  Eats shoots and leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss
The list author says:
  "Quite funny in places, but sometimes annoying and smug. Definitely a 'bathroom book' (ie - to read when you're on the toilet!)"
Used & New from: £0.01

Adventures in a TV Nation
10.  Adventures in a TV Nation by Michael Moore
The list author says:
  "Americans. You've gotta luv 'em. This book highlights just how dumb some of them really are. Not the most challenging read, but mildly amusing and eye opening."
Used & New from: £0.01

She's Come Undone
12.  She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
The list author says:
  "A bit of a plodder. The protagonist isn't very likeable, but she grew on me towards the end. Left me feeling a bit drained."

Heaven Eyes
15.  Heaven Eyes by David Almond
