Book of the Month: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig


Somewhere in between life and death, there is a library that offers shelves that go on forever. There is one book that tells the story of your life as it is, and an infinite number of other books that offer a different reality. Nora Seed finds herself in the Midnight Library wondering what life would be like if she made different choices along the way. What if you choose a different career? What if you stay in a relationship instead of breaking up? Nora is forced to make tough decisions about what is important in her life, and if her regrets will ultimately change course of her reality.
