Oh yes - that got me exactly the same way. I sort of enjoyed Justine, and
got to the end of that, but 120 days I barely got started.
The other book I wish I hadn't read is Dracula - I read this aged 12 or
so, thinking I'd stop if it got scary, but by the time I got scared I was
too far in and couldn't stop. I can't remember details of the plot now,
but even thinking enough to write this is starting my heart beating
faster. I've never dared to try Sunshine in case it's similar, and avoid
all horror now just in case. (Thankfully no-one told me Neil Gaiman was
considered horror until I'd read several of his books:-))
