Living without the sun can be difficult and London’s weather is quite unbearable at the moment. Even though it is hard to think about summer and your next holiday right now, you still need to consider the fact that you will need an occupation while you are lying on the beach in Costa Rica or by the pool in the Bahamas. Here at .Cent we gathered which volumes you should definitely keep in your bag during your holidays.
Strictly My Husband (Tracy Bloom)
Laura loves it when Tom takes her for a late night tango around the kitchen after their friends have gone one. She can’t dance but who cares?

Couple who dance together stay together right?
The Missing (C.L. Taylor)
When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire, blames herself. She’s not the only one. There isn’t a single member of Billy’s family that doesn’t feel guilty. But the Wilkinsons are so used to keeping secrets from one another that it isn’t until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface.
Claire is sure of two things – that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance.

The Long Cosmos (Terry Pratchett)
Nearly six decades after Step Day and in the Long Earth, the new Next post-human society continues to evolve. For Joshua Valienté, now in his late sixties, it is time to take one last solo journey into the High Meggers: an adventure that turns into a disaster. Alone and facing death, his only hope of salvation lies with a group of trolls. But as Joshua confronts his mortality, the Long Earth receives a signal from the stars. A signal that is picked up by radio astronomers but also in more abstract ways – by the trolls and by the Great Traversers. Its message is simple but the implications are enormous: JOIN US.
