11 Inspiring Books To Read When You’re Feeling Lonely And Need Some Cheering Up

Sudden bursts of loneliness can wash over you like a tidal wave you never saw coming, and other times, loneliness can seep in slowly. Feeling lonely is definitely not something to be ashamed of, and as an avid reader and introverted human, I’ve come to learn that books are great medicine to curing loneliness. Here are 11 novels to read whenever the lonely bug has made its mark on you.

 

1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre is one of my all time favorite characters. Orphaned at a young age and forced into a cruel upbringing, Jane’s lonely spirit doesn’t break. Instead, she only gains strength. While on the search for a better life in a world that doesn’t always offer it, Jane begins to learn who she is on her own, a monumental lesson everyone can benefit from. If you’ve been searching for a motivating character you can relate to, Jane Eyre is the woman for you. Read More

2. Louder Than Words by Laura Jarratt

Rafi, a girl with selective mutism, hasn’t spoken a word in over eight years. Her big brother, Silas, adores her, and includes her in every little detail of his popular and intelligent life. After Silas introduces her to a possible new friend, Rafi suddenly desires to learn to speak again — but she can’t find the right words to say. This isolated and unique story highlights true loneliness and what it feels like to try and break out of it, all written in gorgeous prose from Laura Jarratt. Read More

3. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

I have a love-hate relationship with Hemingway, but I do admire his incredible memoir, A Moveable Feast, because of how it captures loneliness and uses it as a strength. During his days in Paris, Hemingway notes how many pages he wrote, what he ate, how much he drank, and the little deatils he notices on the busy and bustling streets of the City of Lights. Hemingway shows readers how to enjoy the company of oneself, no matter where you are or what you’re doing, even in the midst of loneliness. Read More

4.Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

This is a dark YA novel, but one packed with enough power to show just how valuable every life is. Clay Jensen, an average high school boy, comes home to find a box filled with cassette tapes made by Hanna Baker, his crush and classmate who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Why read this incredibly tragic book when you’re feeling lonely? It’ll open your eyes to just how many people actually are there for you, even when you don’t always see it. Read More
