I'm currently reading Seekers by Erin Hunter. She's the same author that writes the Warriors books. I like Seekers better then Warriors. It's a good book.

Been reading the first 4 volumes of The Goon. I'm really liking it so far. Its lighthearted and fun while being full of zombies and gross things. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing it.

I usually like a few books at time, which keeps my interest better...I can read a bit of one, then a bit of another, and so on. Mostly because the internet ruined my attention span, I'm building it back up though. Right now, I'm reading:

"Pretties" by Scott Westerfeld
"The Last Hawk" by Catherine Asaro
"Thrilling Wonder Stories, vol 1" edited by Winston Engle
"Apocalypse Culture" edited by Adam Parfrey
"Otaku: Japan's Database Animals" by Hiroki Azuma

Currently, I'm reading "In Cold Blood" by Capote, and I don't know what it is about the book. It's well written, but it's very, very haunting, and I have no idea if it's just the subject matter at hand, the way it is handled, or the way Capote writes. Very descriptive, that man.

I read it a few years ago, and more or less felt the same way about it. Other than Breakfast at Tiffany's, it's the only Capote I've ever read, and I really liked his writing style. I couldn't quite put my finger on what makes it so haunting; the subject matter is certainly disturbing, but in the end I just chalked it up to being a combination of all three things you mentioned. It's definitely a book that stays with you for a while.

I just finished The Mysterious Stranger by Mark Twain. I don't know what made me read it, because I'm not exactly a fan of his better-known works (I wanted to pull my hair out reading Tom Sawyer in high school), but I loved it as much as anything I've ever read. It's a fascinating, gripping read, and it's made me seriously rethink my opinion of Twain as a writer. It's incredibly witty and intriguing, and the social commentary was incredible and a bit sad and scary. The ending is one of the most shocking -- but fitting and thought-provoking -- things I've ever read. Unfortunately, since it's an unfinished work and the version I read was heavily edited, it's also made me spend $25 on the manuscripts. :/
