I want to get into reading is there any cool books you guys/gals can suggest?

I want to get into reading because I'm illiterate and want to become better and have better vocab also it beats around sleeping and watching movies
I've never really enjoyed reading just because I can't see it like I can see a movie but I did enjoy some books like how to kill a mockingbird and there were others which I had to also read through school
I'm into stories with adventure, fantasy, sex erotics, and thrill
Please don't suggest some 5k page book please

Updates:
Thank you all for your suggestions I will try and read most of your suggestions bios and if their good will get the books

  • I suggest shorter books with more depth. I have one book in mind that fits all your criteria: Grim by Christine Johnson, I believe. Here's the GoodReads link: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16115038-grim

    It's a great book, it's got multiple great stories with a little bit of violence, some humor and adventure, and a bit of sexual implications and such. It's also got a ton of fantasy. it's inspired by the Brothers Grimm, and since it's by a lot of different authors, you can pick out which ones you want to read and follow up some of the writer's other works if you like the story they wrote for the book. It's one of my favorites, good luck!!

    P. s. I would also recommend getting a goodreads account and using the recommendations on there, they're amazing!

  • Larry Niven's PROTECTOR. He also wrote Ringworld. Both are older science fiction, but great books. You might also consider reading the hobbit.

  • the picture of dorian grey is an amazing book that spins off into a surprisingly dark story line

    also you might enjoy reading fanfiction. if you haven't heard of it it is basically stories written about other established stories. say you really like the avengers well you could look up a story about your fav characters and find one that suits your tastes (p. s there is some very explicit erotica to be found there). Archive of Our Own is the best cite to use. there are some amazing stories that come in all sorts of lengths.

  • Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut is a good book. It's obsurd and hilarious but I can be a little hard to follow at times.

  • Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton is a really good Urban Fantasy novel. The main character Anita Blake is a vampire executioner and she can raise zombies from the dead.
    The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole is my favorite YA series it's post-apocalyptic paranormal romance. Warner Bros. TV bought the filming rights for it last year. It's action pact and the world building totally unique. Book Trailer:

    She also has both a Paranormal Romance and Erotic Romance series for adults.

  • I think it'll depend on if you like Young adult books or adult books if my suggestions would help haha. Personally, some of my favorite series are Strange Angles (a lot of supernatural creatures ). Rot and Ruin is another good one (zombies)
