Get yourself a copy (at the link below) of The Noble Quran: Interpretation of the Meanings of the Noble Qur'an in the English Language by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan & Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali. Why is it the best? Because it goes the extra mile of not only including the translation of the verses, but includes, where more explanation is needed, tafsir from At-Tabari, Al-Qurtubi, and Ibn Kathir with relevant ahadith from Sahih Al-Bukhari.

Take this opportunity to get yourself acquainted with revelation of your Lord. The one for which He (subḥānahū wa-taʿālā) said: "Alif, Lam, Ra. [This is] a Book whose verses are perfected and then presented in detail from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted" [11:1]. And in another place in the Qur'an, He (subḥānahū wa-taʿālā) said: "Alif, Lam, Meem, Ra. These are the verses of the Book; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, but most of the people do not believe" [13:1]. Likewise in the same surah (Ar-Ra'd) previously mentioned, He (subḥānahū wa-taʿālā) said: "And if there was any qur'an by which the mountains would be removed or the earth would be broken apart or the dead would be made to speak, [it would be this Qur'an], but to Allah belongs the affair entirely..." [13:31]. So what are you waiting for!? Let today be the day you finally take the word of Allah as your companion and to never leave it again to gather dust on your shelf after Ramadan or any other time of the year.
