The Midnight Library

  ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  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 blockbuster 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.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I have never read a book by Matt Haig, but I am sure glad I was told about The Midnight Library. Recommended at book club as a top summer read, I dove it. 

Nora is considering ending her life when she make a visit to the Midnight Library. She is taken on a journey of "what ifs" of her life and can chose a different ending. So amazing the journey we are taken on and through Nora's life choices. Mrs. Elm….we all need one of her in our life!

Absolutely loved the story line, characters and journey. All the little things of importance that surround Nora's life and the difference she made without even realizing it. The Midnight Library would make an excellent movie!

The Midnight Library is a must read - you will be grateful you did. I need to go find some more Matt Haig books.
