When confused or in doubt about a long drawn out book of the Bible (ie Numbers), simply pop in a Chuck Missler tape on that book and prepare to become thoroughly fascinated and excited about a book that initially seemed boring.
I'm not a "Missler-ite", but he's helped me to see some awesome things in "boring" books that I'd never knew before.

I remain a Pre-Trib guy who still believes that the Revelation applies to today and much of which is future (a stance that is becoming very unpopular these days). And Lisa and I really dig JOB. There's so much to learn and discover if you can get past the depressing "Lamentations" type writing.

As for your question, I struggle with occasional Old Testament books, mostly in the prophets. Takes me a lot of extra study to understand the historical placement and the time of prophetical fulfillments.

What I love most about Scripture is, it's simple enough in places for a new believer to "get it" and grow.... yet deep enough for the most decorated scholar to spend their entire life on.

Good stuff ! Now if I could discipline myself to spend more time in the Word... that's another story

My favorite is probably either Mark, James or Psalms. Mark is like an action packed narrative and is often where I recommend people start when reading the Bible. James is just a good, common sense approach to faith application. Psalms are songs and poetry and are full of both literal and poetic, figurative speech. Beautiful.

I don't know that I'm struggling with a book neccessarily. My struggle has been to study regularly recently. Our son started kindergarten, which increased how much we have going on as a household.

Couple that with Thursday night Praise Team practice (my wife sings and I play guitar and sing on some songs), Wednesday night Bible study and work... I'm overwhelmed. Then combine that with my wife's health issues the last year and the fact that I'm doing the  cooking, cleaning, and budtgeting/bill-paying (what we can afford anyway) and most evenings (when I typically would study) I'm so tired that once our son is in bed, I may relax for an hour and then go to bed.

I need to find a time devoted to study that fits our schedule.

Leviticus. Yes, that is my final answer. I have read through the bible several times now, and every time I get to Leviticus, my attention span goes out the window.

Also, when I was 12, and a new Christian, I started reading the bible. Of course I had no idea (yet) that the old Mosaic law of animal sacrifices was no longer required for atonement, so I spent a few nights awake, wondering where I am going to get a bull, a lamb, seven goats and seven rams for a sin offering, and how in the world would I explain to my dad that I need them for my sin offering.

I have a really hard time getting through some of the old testament books like Leviticus, Numbers, Chronicles 1 & 2.  I just seemed to get bogged down when reading those books.

Some of my favorite books are John (the gospel), Revelation, Ruth & Ephesians.

One of my courses, Bible survey, runs through each book and gives the context and summary. It's helped immensely with many heavy books.

For me, as I mentioned here recently, Ecclesiastes was a challenge. Also, reading through the Law was painful, but a little interesting at the same time. The prophetic books are probably the hardest, but having a set of notes on prophecy is very useful to "decode", to some extent, what is written.

I don't really have too much trouble with any one book in the Bible.  But the last few chapters in Proverbs are a bit tedious to read.

As for my favorite, I've always liked Daniel.

I agree that Romans is a great book, just not one of the ones that jumps into my mind as a top 3 or 4 favorites...certainly top 10 though.
