Pick up The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It's awesome. I think you would like it.
Other recommendations to get you started:
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Night Angel: The Complete Trilogy by Brent Weeks (3 books in one for like $15 -- a good deal. Good story, too.)
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley -- A really fun book. She was only 19 when she wrote this!
Dune - Frank Herbert
1984 - George Orwell
Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes
These are mostly fantasy/sci-fi recommendations, but I threw in a couple of others, too, in case you are interested.
You might also want to poke around on this site for more ideas:
To be perfectly honest, I read 'poorly written' things all the time. Books don't need to be long and intense to be enjoyable.
Snugz, I recently started reading the Warcraft books - and I'm having a rather good time curled up with them. If you want to start reading, then read, good or bad you'll still be spending your time with the book.
There was another thread about good books to pick up that had a lot of suggestions I would also recommend. Its probably not a bad place to start your list.
