Asylum is also good (it has photos in it too so it’s pretty cool)

My favourite books when I was 16 were things like
- Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
- Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
to name a few. They have quite simple vocab and the above two are fantasy which really helped me with becoming more imaginative and creative for English exams

Start small.
Check out Anthony Horowitz, he has some cool books that can help you ease your way into reading.

I also loved Goosebumps (horror) growing up!
