BOOK REVIEW: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

My love for @mattzhaig and his profound writing continues.

I really do believe that my love of books and literature has saved me in recent years.

In Midnight Library, Nora Seed learns that books offer infinite possibilities. I concur. They’re new, exciting worlds and brave characters who take us out of our realities when we’re locked down at home, mentally exhausted and unwell. They’re beautiful reminders of potential and hope. They help us to look inward and reflect, but they also help us to broaden our horizons and consider perspectives, peoples and places that we wouldn’t ordinarily come into contact with or think about.

I was scared to start reading Midnight Library because I felt a little fragile and didn’t know if I was in the right mindset to appreciate it… But it was exactly the remedy I needed for where I am in my life right now and a very pleasantly easy read. I would definitely recommend for anybody who struggles with anxiety: it would be a great read for a commute to work, especially if you’re nervous about the prospect of returning to work or travelling post-lockdown💜
