Virtual Book Club: The Midnight Library
I’m going to try something! A monthly virtual book club of sorts! On the first Wednesday (ish) of each month, I’ll post what I’ve read the previous month with my review and then post what I’m reading next for you to read along. Then we can all discuss in the comments. If you have book recommendations that you want to add to the list, slide on into my DMs!
Book: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
My Rating: 6/10
This wasn’t my favorite. It took me a long time to read it because it sorta dragged on longer than it should have. The ending was incredibly predictable. The dialogue also drove me insane. It had such promise because the premise sounded promising and interesting but in the end, it was basically just a reinvented version of A Christmas Story. I wanted to like it so much but it just fell so short for me. Nora isn’t even true that likable
Has anyone read this one? What do you think?!
Next up: The Psychology of Time Travel
Goodreads Summary: In 1967, four female scientists worked together to build the world’s first time machine. But just as they are about to debut their creation, one of them suffers a breakdown, putting the whole project—and future of time travel—in jeopardy. To protect their invention, one member is exiled from the team—erasing her contributions from history.
Fifty years later, time travel is a big business. Twenty-something Ruby Rebello knows her beloved grandmother, Granny Bee, was one of the pioneers, though no one will tell her more. But when Bee receives a mysterious newspaper clipping from the future reporting the murder of an unidentified woman, Ruby becomes obsessed: could it be Bee? Who would want her dead? And most importantly of all: can her murder be stopped?
Traversing the decades and told from alternating perspectives, The Psychology of Time Travel introduces a fabulous new voice in fiction and a new must-read for fans of speculative fiction and women’s fiction alike.
