Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward.

Isn't it just fantastic when you start out reading a book hating the main character, but then, about 3/4 of the way through the book, you're like, sobbing because you love them so much? Crazy, I know.

I'm really tired of The Stand at this point but it's good enough that I'll power through it instead of giving up on it. I haven't had this much "get on with it" since the last Harry Potter book.

I mean, I didn't even give up on Twilight - which I read just so I wouldn't be a giant ass like the fellow who reviewed it as tripe without even actually reading it.

I'm thinking of impaling myself on some Horatio Hornblower next.

@Ororo Monroe, I'd guess you've already read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ? The Dirk Gently ones ? The Hobbit was quite funny, which I guess shows that I shouldn't talk about funny. I laughed during parts of The Inferno, too.

Anything by David Sedaris. I'm currently reading his latest. The Wooster and Jeeves series by PG Wodehouse. Anything by Dan Savage. If you are familiar with classic British Literature, the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde are hilarious; if you're not then his Nursery Crimes series. Some of Christopher Moore's stuff is funny. My favorite is Lamb, but it's pretty blasphemous.

Oh, man. Are you reading the "complete and uncut" version? As I was slogging through it, I thought, "You know, there's a reason why the editors made him cut this stuff in the first place." :/ But ultimately, I did like it.

Yep. Yep.

I also read the unabridged Les Miserables with all that Waterloo and convents. I will say that the essays actually stuck with me more than most of the actual plot and I'm glad I read it.

Watching Supernatural made me really tired of "Good vs Evil" recently so this whole People of God vs Randall Flagg thing is getting kind of grating. I want some shades of grey, just not 50 of them okay.

Thank you all for responding. I've read Jasper Fforde, PG Wodehouse, and Douglas Adams. I will check out the rest.

Bwahaha! Actually, I was going to mention Les Miserables as a book that I liked but just had had enough of. I enjoyed the first four volumes but when I got to the fifth, I was like, "Got it. Movin' on." Moby-Dick was another one that I almost gave up on even though I liked the chapters on whaling. But the whale showed up in the nick of time and killed everyone except Ismael only who alone escaped the tell us.

If you like PG Wodehouse, you'd probably enjoy To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis. Bellweather by the same author is also very amusing. But avoid The Doomsday Book by her if you want something funny. It is excellent but very grim.

I've been reading a lot of reprinted 19th century manuals lately (I finished reading Metallurgy the other day and now I'm reading one on stickfighting).

Just finished Battle Royale-- basically Hunger Games before Hunger Games was written, but with more kids, no advance warning for the participants, and far more creative 'weapons'.

Now I'm reading the LP of Dangan Ronpa... I'm seeing a trend.

Almost done reading Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series again (currently on Tangled Webs, only Twilight's Dawn to go after that). Then there's Pride & Prejudice and The Hobbit
