I'm really, really struggling with The Poisonwood Bible.
Argh.

Does anybody have any good books they can recommend?

Last read: False Gods by Graham McNeill... it was okay.
Currently reading: Galaxy In Flames by Ben Counter. Not great.
Next on the list: Cocaine Nights by J.G. Ballard.

Torture Garden by Octave Mirbeau (beware, it is very violent, very bloody, very graphic and generally disturbing fare, but a classic) or The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea by Yukio Mishima.

Finally finished The Sunflower Forest - Torey Hayden, it's taking me so long to read books these days.

Now reading Insomnia - Stephen King.

I can't get into 'Decline and Fall'. I just, don't find it at all entertaining.
I read 'A Tale of Two Sisters' by Anna Maxted instead. Absolute trash, but I can't be bothered reading anything better right now, haha. And I like her books.

Try Fulgrim, by Graham McNeill. Much better, but has themes of mental illness and self harm in it, so be warned!

Just finished reading Let The Right One In, by John Ajivide Lindqvist. A vampire story, and super disturbing. Quite a trigger for sexual abuse.

Ok it's been a couple of months since I wrote what I've been reading
So since last time I have read Angels and Demons- Dan Brown, Kathy Reichs novels [11] (got them in two box sets for basically $5AUS a book), and The Sorceress by Michael Scott.

I go through book buying spells aswell. I have a few on my "to read" pile. Only just started the zombie book - just a few chapters in.
