I hate to admit, it took me way too long to finish this book and it wasn’t the book that was at fault, it was me. From the moment I began to read it, I was intrigued, but I found the moment I put it down I would ignore it for days, weeks and months. This book traveled around my entire apartment and remained closed. The past year, I had been living a distracted life from all the things I once deemed important. However, this year, I decided to get it under control and be more intentional about my time, while also getting back to the things I love like reading and as a result I finally finished this book. So here is my quick review.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is a captivating and thought-provoking novel. I don’t want to give too much away, but it is a book about life decisions, seeing the potential you have and seeing how the choices you make have an effect on how things turn out. The book follows Nora Seed, a young woman who finds herself in the Midnight Library, a place between life and death where she can explore all the lives she could have lived. There really isn’t a dull moment, the entire time you will find yourself turning the pages in curiosity to know what will happen next. Maybe it’s because I just finished it, but I don’t really have anything negative to say about the book.
I would definitely recommend this one. The day I finished reading this book I had received some less than pleasant news and yet after I finished the book, even though it had nothing to do with my own life, I felt optimistic. I will give you a new appreciation for the life you have.
