A book both equally heartwarming as it is heartbreaking, The Midnight Library is one of the most fantastic reads I've enjoyed in awhile. Haig's protagonist Nora is a phenomenal narrator as she's caught between life and death in her own library of regrets, lessons, and different lives. Nora's fantastical journey through her alternate worlds blends genres of science fiction, romance and even philosophy and leaves you appreciating the little unseen forces that make up your daily routine. ~ Reviewed by Samantha Beitler

This book shocked me with how much I loved it! Gail Honeyman creates the perfect heroine in Elinor who tackles in her own weird,deadpan way mental health and substance abuse, social pressures, and the ability to create your own unique family. Elinor's journey throughout the novel is both hilarious and heartbreaking, ending with a twist that makes you beg for more of her story. ~ Reviewed by Samantha Beitler
