For me, it's hard to recommend a specific book to learn to code, because I started reading regularly later in my career.
I would still recommend spending more time practicing at the beginning.
And I would still recommend more general-purpose books for the beginners.

  • "Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software" is an old book, but it'll help to know the basics (though I still haven't read it :)
  • "Grokking Algorithms" for algorithms
  • some of the books were listed in the comments, maybe you'll find a suitable one for you
