What would your life look like if you had made a different choice somewhere along the line? I'm sure at some point we've all pondered, "What if I had gone to that other college?" "What if I'd stayed in that relationship?" "What if I'd gone on that trip?"
The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig explores that question. After a series of disappointing events, Nora thinks she doesn’t want to live anymore. After making a decision to take her life, she ends up in a library, run by her school librarian. There, she has a chance to explore an infinite number of possible ways her life could have turned out. But what she discovers is something she never imagines she would. While we all wonder what our lives would have been like if they had been different, would any of those lives truly be better?
A beautiful book with an important lesson to teach, I really enjoyed this. It was deep without feeling overly heavy, and it’s the kind of book I feel better for having read.
Get the book.
