Love to Read

Selected resources from the Manchester Metropolitan University Library collection for leisure reading and reading for pleasure.

100 novels that shaped our world

More reading suggestions

Over the last few years we've had fun putting together suggestions for books you might like to read, with fiction featuring a lot, but also non-fiction from time to time. We've asked our colleagues in the Manchester Writing School to give us their favourites, and we've covered romance, love and sexuality, and health and wellbeing too. We've welcomed our new students to Manchester with a selection of some of our favourite books set in this wonderful city, and our migration fiction collection covers those travelling and living a long way from home. We can recommend an eclectic mix of women's writing (including Irish women's writing), but our most popular collections so far are of favourite children's books and overall favourite book ever.

There is much, much more in our Wakelet account @mmulibrary ('Love to Read' section), including the themes in the image below.
