Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY by Matt Haig
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY by Matt Haig. I really enjoyed Matt Haig’s How to Stop Time so when I saw he had a new book coming out and that it’s actually a book about books, it became a must-read for me.
THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY by Matt Haig
Publication Date: September 29, 2020
‘Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices… Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?’
A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.
Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?
In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting new novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

I really enjoyed that one, but I’m a sucker for a good time travel story anyway, lol.
Lots of people sing Haig’s praises, but I have yet to read any of his books. What a fabulous premise. Sounds fantastic.
If you like time travel stories, How to Stop Time is really interesting.
This book sounds amazing! I immediately added it to my wish list. Thank you for bringing this one to my attention.
You’re welcome! 🙂
Ooo! I’ve just scampered across to Netgalley and requested this one! Thank you so much for sharing:))). Fingers crossed that I can get hold of it.
Good luck! I requested it too but tend to have mixed luck when it comes to that publisher.
I really like the sound of this! And what a great title! Such an interesting premise! I hope you enjoy The Midnight Library when you read it. Stay safe and well.

Thanks, you too!
This book just makes me pause and consider things, you know? It really does make you think about your life, and what you want or don’t want in life. Really wonderful pick, Suzanne!
Yesh, I have a feeling this is going to be one of those books that leave me with plenty of food for thought. 🙂
I’ve yet to try anything by Haig but this one has a fascinating premise.
