    This book seems very simple yet touched a different area. Life is full of ups and down, tests and turns. What decisions e take at a certain pint decides the future course. Sometimes woven if we utmost care a decision we took may not be the right one. But can we undo it? No, may be because we don’t have any Midnight Library :). I liked your review.

    With every book review post you inspired me dear. honestly nowadays I did not get enough time to read new books. the plot of this book sounds so relatable to me and I agree that most of us think too much about past. and think that things could have been better .

      I am glad to read that, Surbhi. I agree, we often live in the past instead of working on making the best of our present.

    Like they say, “the grass is always green on the other side”. If given a choice, how many would choose to live the same life as opposed to something else that they admired? However, we may not know the challenges that the other life brings with it. Seem like an intriguing book – treatment seems different of how such a serious topic is handled through fiction. Will add it to my reading list.

    That’s absolutely true grasses always seem greener on another side; we spent most of the life thinking Wish we could change our past decisions. But yes, that is something beyond our control. Another honest and crisp review for the book ‘The midnight Library’ Adding the book to my TBR list. This year I am trying my best to get back to my reading routine.

    I liked the melange of fantasy and a library, must be surely an interesting read as you mentioned. I usually like something that is different, off-beat, this suits me well.

    The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is in my TBR list for quite sometime now and the only reason for me to not purchase it right away is because my book shelves are over flowing… Reading this 5 star review just makes it more tempting to purchase right away.

    This one’s been on my TBR for ever so long. Five stars is a great rating and makes me want to pick up the book rightaway. Also, I completely love the premise – trying out alternate life-choices is so intriguing.

    The title definitely caught my attention and made me curious about the book. Plus your review..damn you are right that everybody has some guilt and regret for a thing or two. The thing which could have been different if we would have taken the different decision sosituatio9n would have been different so the regret wouldn’t be haunting us.

    I must tell you that I prefer nonfiction books but, this is gonna be an exception. This one has gone into my TBR list and definitely gonna in my bok collection real soon.

    Thanks for writing so wonderfully, it has made really curious about the book.

    Happy reading!!
