Getting back into reading

It has been a long time since I have actually read a book out of enjoyment. When school got stressful and busy, I stopped. Since, I have only been reading books that were forced on me (ie English). What should I read to get me back into reading?
I used to read a fair amount of fantasy, I never had a taste for sci-fi, I get my daily dose of classics from English classes, and finally, at heart I am still a kid so I don't exactly want to read a book just because it is a "must read."
Recently I have been interested in reading a book that bends your mind and in reading a book about about overcoming impossible, dangerous, and threatening odds (such as a non shit version of "Lone Survivor").

Another theme of the book is that human illusions persist in adulthood and that, to some
extent, we need them. Rachman’s characters typically cling to a fantasy until jolted out of it
(as happens to the corrections editor who believes that he and his old friend Jimmy are
“gradations of the same man” until Jimmy visits and the editor realizes that they are “utterly
different”). [Page 94] How well does Rachman develop this theme? Were you persuaded,
for example, that the corrections editor would cling for so long to his fantasies about
Jimmy’s writing talents? Or that the Paris correspondent could be so mistaken about his
