The Midnight Library

 The Midnight Library 

Author: Matt Haig

Publisher: Viking

Year: 2020


Nora Seed’s life hasn’t turned out the way she’d planned. She feels like she disappointed her father years ago by giving up a promising swimming career that could have led to Olympic glory. She’s estranged from her brother because she quit their band just as it was beginning to take off. She never fulfilled her teenage dream of becoming a glaciologist. She just lost her job at a music store and her cat died. She decides to end it all and wakes up at the Midnight Library. Mrs. Elm, Nora’s old high school librarian, explains that It is no ordinary library. Every book in it is a possible life Nora could have. Nora is hanging in the balance between life and death. She can choose a new life or none at all. Nora begins to try different versions of her life is she had made different decisions. She becomes the international rock star, the glaciologist, the Olympic champion, and much more trying to find a life that gives her happiness and success. 

This is a charming, but somewhat predictable, story of self discovery, letting go of regrets, finding true happiness, and new perspectives, and infinite possibilities.
