Teaser Tuesday: Lonely by Emily White

Teaser Tuesdays is an interesting and fun book-related meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Be prepared to add several new books to your TBR list! I do every week!

My Teaser:

" What I was going for was togetherness, a sort of bounded camaraderie which - much like the army - would see me dressing and behaving like everybody else. Although I could never have said so to Martin, who was socially gutsy, what I was looking for was a buffer, a shortcut into a life so intensely peopled that loneliness couldn't find me. "

from Lonely by Emily White (p. 21)

Anyone can play along! If you'd like to participate, Just do the following:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. (I used 3 this week!)
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
*Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their
TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

*And, finally, don't forget to link your post to MizB's at Should Be Reading. If you don't have a blog, simply share your "teasers" in a comment.


  1. I'm reviewing this book for TLC next month, but haven't received it yet. It sounds like a good one!

  2. Ah, but loneliness can find anyone anywhere.

    Great teaser

    My teaser is here.

  3. Interesting teaser. Loneliness is hard to avoid, though, particularly when you're trying to . . .

  4. This one sounds interesting, but maybe a little depressing for this time of year. Good teaser, though!

  5. Avisannschild: I'm reviewing it too! I won it so already at it - so far it's interesting! I look forward to your thoughts.

    Alice Audrey: So true! And the author wants to shed some light on loneliness which embarasses & shames many people.

    The Golden Eagle: Apparently it's something many people suffer from very badly and completely seperate and apart from depression.

    Jshall: I think we all have our problems in life and this time of year finds many people spending a lot of time alone and feeling badly about it. But the author conquers her problem with loneliness I think and learns to cope with it while helping others.
