bookshelves: in-limbo, to-read

I've had trouble getting into this one and I keep setting it aside to read other things. I think part of the problem is that I read the first chapter (prelude?) while having lunch one day. Perhaps I was already feeling a bit unwell, but I was so grossed out by a few descriptions in those first few pages that I had to put the book down and couldn't finish eating. Now every time I pick up the book, I feel mildly nauseated, even though I enjoyed the next 30 or so pages I read. PTSD! But I'm pretty sure I'll like the book once I focus on it for a couple of hours and the images from that first chapter fade a bit more in my memory.
