I’m applying to study english at uni and was wondering if anybody had suggestions on what books would be good to mention. Is there anything that will make them say "wow she’s well read lets give her a place"? I don’t read many of the classics which is probably going to be a sore point for my application
Genuinely, there are no specific books that will wow them. Just talk about what you enjoyed reading most. If it is the case that you don’t enjoy reading, you probably shouldn’t be applying for English

Life isnt like that.
We do not make offers on that basis and it is far more considered than 'make that kid an offer'.

Try reading something like these - this will give you an idea of what studying Literature at University level is like and give you some 'ideas' to talk about / discuss. :
