Teaser Tuesday (16)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by  MizB at Should be Reading.

To Participate you:
-Grab your current read
-Open to a random page
-Share two 'teaser' sentences from somewhere on that page
-BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS
-Share the Title and Author, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR if the like your  teaser :)

This week's teaser comes from:

"He didn't want to go home and he put it off for as long as possible. Home was not a pleasant place in his mind. The kind of feelings he had had there were dead in him, and he has a reluctance to bring them to life."

This is my second time reading this book, but the first time I read it was about 8 or 9 years ago, so I don't really remember much at all. I do remember that I liked it though haha. Hopefully I enjoy it this time around as well :).

What are you teasing this week?
