Book Review: Library Staff

"Would you dare to live the life you could have had...?”
book midnight library.jpg

Kyla Merwin, Communications Manager, recommends The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.

If you’re not making mistakes in life, you’re not trying hard enough.

Most of us get up in the morning with good intentions; we certainly don’t wake up thinking, “How can I massively screw up my life today?”

Still, no one gets through adulthood without a few regrets along the way, eh?

That said, if you could turn back time and make a different decision at a critical point in your life, would you?

Would you dare to live the life you could have had based on that different decision?

This is exactly what The Midnight Library explores in the life of one Nora Seed, who has piled up wrong turns and bad timing. . .and consequently given up on life.

That’s when all hell breaks loose. . .

Book Beat: Student Book Review


Hi , I am Ella, dreamer, ski racer, writer, and rock climber. Ella lives in SV, Idaho with her mom, dad, cat, dog, gecko, and fish.

For my Book Beat review, I read The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle by Leslie Connor.

Mason Buttle is a big sweaty boy. He doesn’t seem intelligent but he hides many secrets. His life is full of mystery.

His best friend, Benny, showed up dead in the Buttle family orchard just a year before the story takes place.

Mason is made fun of at school and receives many taunts because of his near illiteracy. The only safe place Mason has is the guidance counselor’s office, the SWOOF. There he starts working on the dragon, a device which turns his words into writing to explain his life story.

This is valuable to the police officer that comes to his house and questions Mason weekly, still trying to discover what happened to Benny. . .
