What if.

Two such powerful words.

We have all wondered about our lives would be if based on those two words. What if.

I know I have.

What if we didn’t move?
What if we didn’t get together with that person?
What if we never took that job?

What would our life be like, what would we be like?

The Midnight Library takes on those what if’s.

Nora comes to the library after attempting to commit suicide. She is then able to live out an infinite amount of her what-if lives.

Each life she lives, she learns a little be more about herself. But there is this nagging feeling, that her life isn’t fulfilled.

The Midnight Library is a wonderful story of second chances, and you won’t be able to put it down.

It will make you think about all the what ifs of your own life.

Read this if you enjoyed: Sliding doors, Sliders, or the Time Travellers Wife.
