I've finally come to terms with the fact that I need to start reading more books to enhance my English skills. I was wondering what everyone's favourite books of all time were so that I could start my reading journey. I prefer fiction books by the way.

There's a couple I can recommend:

- Les Misérables (English translation) by Victor Hugo. You don't have to read it all since it's huge but the English used in it is pretty advanced (at least by my standards) and I believe you can greatly benefit from it.
- The Wave by Todd Strasser. Doesn't really use any advanced terms/language and the register is mostly informal, but the novel is very enjoyable and not too long and could help you with things like creative pieces.

I hear the Count of Monte Cristo is quite exciting for a classic, but I've been putting it off.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov has great prose yet still remains fairly readable, albeit not the most exciting plot, which may or may not help with your English. I would recommend the annotated version.

Almost all of my recent books feature female protagonists so I'm not sure they'll appeal to you but if I had to choose one, I quite enjoyed Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. Though, the plot doesn't really pick up until halfway through the book.
