There have been other posts on books, however this post is for general recommendations -so share yours in the comments.
Here's some authors to check out.
Anything by Oliver Sacks - for the first few try 'The Man who Mistook his Wife for A Hat' and 'Hallucination'. Sacks was a prolific writer and had incredible insights
V.S Ramachandran - An author whose 'Phantoms in the Brain' yields great insight to the workings of the human mind. Using no more than a box with a reflective surface, Ramachandran transformed the lives of many with phantom limb syndrome. His other investigations include looking at strange disorders such as Capgras.
Depending on how interested you are there are also texts such as 'The Encyclopedia of neurological disorders.' This has a comprehensive list of diseases and neurological presentations as well as medical interventions.
The other really useful text I use for use in my writing is 'Lishman's Organic Psychiatry.'
The textbook I love is 'Gross Psychology' now in its seventh edition I believe. Extremely accessible.
For neuroanatomy there are a number of texts but I opt for 'Nolte's Human Brain: functional neuroanatomy.
