The Midnight Library by Matt Haig - Book Review

Imagine if you could go back in time and revisit your past regrets. What would you do differently? And how would those possibilities play out? The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is a comforting and heart-warming book about the choices we make, set in a world of parallel lives with a broader theme around mental health. It was voted Best Fiction for 2020 in the Goodreads Choice Awards.  Now that I’ve read it I’d like to read all of Haig's books, including his memoir about his own mental health journey. Haig also features in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent Archewell Audios podcast on Spotify. Synopsis from Allen and Unwin : 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
