STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH
BY EMMA BROWN
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig Nora Seed has found that between life and death lies the Midnight Library. This novel grapples with the ‘if onlys’ of one woman’s life, challenging her despair and woe head on. I was confronted by the strong themes, but captivated by the characters, and found myself cheering for Nora to find her happy ending. If you love science fiction that deals with multiverses, time travel and the butterfly effect, this book is for you. Warning: themes of suicide. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
