The Midnight Library

I can't believe it's April already. Where did January, February, and March go?! Anyway . . .

Let's have a giveaway!

I just finished this book and would love to give away a (new) copy. Have you read this one yet?

 Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?”

A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting new novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

My Review:

The Midnight Library

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nora is giving up. It seems like nothing in her life is going the way she thinks it should, or wants it to, and she has no hope for the future.

The Midnight Library tackles the big question of "what if"? What if you'd made different decisions at certain points in your life? Would things really be better? What if you had all the things you thought you wanted? Would you be happy? What is necessary for happiness anyway?

Nora gets to explore some of these other lives she might have had, had she made different choices.
I absolutely loved this book! It was a page-turner for me, wanting to see what would happen to Nora next. The ending was somewhat predictable but in the best way possible.
