Kyla Merwin, Communications Manager, recommends The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.
If you’re not making mistakes in life, you’re not trying hard enough.
Most of us get up in the morning with good intentions; we certainly don’t wake up thinking, “How can I massively screw up my life today?”
Still, no one gets through adulthood without a few regrets along the way, eh?
That said, if you could turn back time and make a different decision at a critical point in your life, would you?
Would you dare to live the life you could have had based on that different decision?
This is exactly what The Midnight Library explores in the life of one Nora Seed, who has piled up wrong turns and bad timing. . .and consequently given up on life.
That’s when all hell breaks loose.
Nora arrives at a very special library subject to otherworldly rules and governed by her long-ago high school librarian. From endless stacks, Nora gets to experience not just one, but many, many different trajectories of her life based on past choices that she gets to change.
Mind blowing, fascinating, and ultimately uplifting, The Midnight Library invites you to explore a realm at the edge of the known universe, where the books are infinite, the stakes are high, and the choices limited only by one’s own imagination.
