Depends I guess. What kind of non-classic books do you read? If you read mostly romance the way to go might be a classic romance by Austen or Bronte. If you’re into mysteries it might be Conan Doyle. Fantasy Tolkien of course, but maybe something that’s just a bit supernatural like The Picture of Dorian Gray or something. If you like a bit more realism maybe try To Kill a Mockingbird etc. Classics isn’t really a genre the way say mysteries are it’s just the books that had staying power.
The Scapegoat by Daphne du Maurier, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Catch-22 is my all time favorite.
