Are you looking for a new book to read this summer? Well, I have the book for you!

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is an inspirational story of a girl finding a new appreciation for life. The main character, Nora, takes a journey through a mysterious library somewhere between life and death. She is given the chance to see how different decisions would have changed the course of her life. Along the way, she learns important lessons from new people as well as some old.

While I will not spoil the ending, I will say that this novel left me pondering the infinite possible directions my life could take. Haig does an exceptional job of capturing the reader’s attention from the very first page. It is profound, emotional, and deeply relatable.

The novel will change the way you live your day-to-day life. If you love fiction books with deeper meanings that leave you inspired, then this book is a must-read!
