Help, I need somebody!

I've been stalking this community for a while but now I actually have something to say/ask!

I consider reading a fun activity, so I really don't enjoy reading books that I have to pull out a dictionary or take notes to understand. I don't consider my self too stupid, but I've honestly just never really had the interest in reading Dickens or Jane Austin, for example. I usually just grab YA books that I can enjoy, but now I"m getting to the point where all of the books are quite predictable.
The last book that I read was Billie Girl, and I think that it was a pretty good bridge from YA - Adult. It was about mercy killing but was definitely written in a 'straight and to the point' way, if that makes sense? I've also really enjoyed The Bell Jar and managed to read a lot of Philippa Gregory.

So here's the question --

What would you recommend to someone who is looking for more "adult themes" in a book that doesn't include footnotes?


Also, some of the books that I've read recently are here:
