Oy! What to say....I get why this book was loved by so many & I don‘t want to take away from that, but for me this book was wayyyyy too sappy & boarded on cheesy. The underlying message while beautiful was delivered so heavy handedly. I‘m afraid this was #MoreMehThanYeah #Booked2021 #LibraryOrLibrarianInBookTitle

Moray_Reads I've enjoyed Haig's non fiction and his children's books but this is how I've felt about all his adult books. It's too much and instead of making me smile it makes me roll my eyes. This one's still tbr (maybe) 2y
Cinfhen I guess I‘m a bit of a cynic and I kind of went into the book with low expectations @Moray_Reads I was able to #BorrowNotBuy and that suited my needs 2y
Vansa This book was terrible! Nora is quite annoying, quite honestly. The story is so silly, and I found the basic conceit terribly flawed- how can she decide what makes her happy when she's just flung into situations? The entire glacier bit really annoyed me.Also I find this bad advice-its good to get medication from actual practitioners. 2y

BarbaraBB I was afraid so. I‘m glad you confirmed my suspicions. I am having a hard time with this #booked21 prompt! (edited) 2y
Cinfhen Ha @Vansa 😆I definitely feel where you‘re coming from. I thought Nora was annoying AF 2y
Cinfhen There are seriously TONS of books with Library or Librarian in the title @BarbaraBB have you read this one that @Kalalalatja just reviewed/ it‘s awesome 2y
BarbaraBB I saw her review and though I liked it I‘m not sure it‘s a book for me. 2y
Cinfhen I‘ll tag you if I come across any more posts @BarbaraBB but I don‘t think this book is for you! 2y
BarbaraBB Thanks Cindy 🧡 2y
britt_brooke I hated this one. 2y
Cinfhen It was a bit difficult to bare @britt_brooke but so many people gush over it and I don‘t want to take away from those who connected so deeply with Nora and the message Haig was delivering 🙃 2y
Vansa This is why I love Litsy,I love the validation from other people hating the same things I hate! 😂 2y
Cinfhen #PREACH @Vansa ❣️😂 2y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen You are much nicer than I am! 😂 2y
Cinfhen I still think you‘re pretty nice @britt_brooke you pepper your reviews with ya‘ll which seems so friendly & harmless xxxxx 2y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen It‘s that KY/TN thing, lol. 💁🏼‍♀️ I tried many years to drop the “y‘all,” but now I embrace it. 😂 2y
mollyrotondo Oh I‘m so glad you and the commenters felt the same way as me about this book 😂 I just finished it today and I really thought it was so sappy and made suicidal thoughts seem like they can be reversed just by saying life is beautiful. It was too superficial for me. 2y
Cinfhen I wasn‘t sure if I was being too cynical...so im thrilled to know others had similar feelings about this book. 2y
Desha I bailed about halfway through... 1y
Cinfhen I felt like bailing @Desha but the kept thinking maybe it would redeem itself.... nope 👎🏼 and I feel bad because many many many other readers LOVED this book 🤷🏼‍♀️oh well, that‘s what makes reading so wonderful 1y
Desha Lol @Cinfhen I got a comment on my review “you bailed on Midnight Library?”. Not sure what to conment back I know a lot of people loved it but I found it like you said too “heavy handed” in delivering its message. I also believe suicidal thoughts deserve treatment. So I guess I‘m in the minority too 😂. 1y
