    ‘The Midnight Library’ Book Review

    Matt Haig’s New York Times bestselling novel “The Midnight Library,” reached me at an opportune time. I found this rather fitting because the main protagonist, Nora, must grapple with her choices and the squandering of potential. This can be chalked up to timing as much as it can be to her frame of mind. Excitement […]
