Q: What would be a good Chinese starter book?

Hi Guys, 

 

My Chinese is at a level that I can read newspaper articles, HSK 5  but I'm now ready to take on the daunting task of reading a novel in Chinese.

 

What would be a good starter book? I've heard that some Yu Hua is accessible when starting out but not all. What have you read? What did you like/didn't like?

 

Thanks
