I'm not entirely sure if there is already a post about this (I'm new), but here I go.

I feel any aspiring writer should read The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. Or any Leroy book. Despite the author being a fictional creation of Laura Albert, you can't help but fall into the world of Jeremiah and you'll be shocked when you're finished and think "this is not a real life story." A guaranteed favourite with anyone who reads it. :)

If you want to know a little more about these books, search it on amazon.com books, they have an excerpt you can read.

Granted, the plotlines can be extremely disturbing but that's what makes it so beautiful.
