RECENT READS: The Midnight Library
I've got to be honest, I was a little bit disappointed with this book. It had been HYPED UP on book-tok, and as I've devoured many book-tok recommendations before I figured this one would live up to the hype.
Now, this is not to say it was a bad book by any means. It was still a good book and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to read it. However, I was expecting a philosophical, life-altering, mind boggling moral to the story which I didn't get. Overall, the plot was good and I did like the writing style and I do think there were some important messages about choices and the decisions we make in life.
I do think if this book hadn't been so over-hyped and I had read it at face value, then I would've enjoyed the book so much more! Let me know if you've read it and what you thought about it...
Between life and death there is a library. When Nora Seed finds herself in the Midnight Library, she has a chance to make things right. Up until now, her life has been full of misery and regret. She feels she has let everyone down, including herself. But things are about to change. The books in the Midnight Library enable Nora to live as if she had done things differently. With the help of an old friend, she can now undo every one of her regrets as she tries to work out her perfect life. But things aren't always what she imagined they'd be, and soon her choices place the library and herself in extreme danger. Before time runs out, she must answer the ultimate question: what is the best way to live?
