What’s the best English Halacha Sefer for a beginner Ashkenazi? Kitzur Shulchan Aruch? Any modern Halacha seforim in English?
I must say, that I am so impressed with your drive to learn and grow. Keep it up and you’ll get to great heights!
There are many seforim out there. One recommendation would be the halacha books from Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen published by Artscroll. He has on daily living, Shabbat, Yom Tov, and numerous other topics. All written in a concise clear understandible maaner. Here is link to the correct page https://www.artscroll.com/search/simcha%20bunim%20cohen.aspx
Another source that might help you would be torahlive
