My three favorite books on compilers (in no particular order) are:

* Engineering a Compiler: https://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Compiler-Second-Keith-Coo...

* Modern Compiler Implementation in ML: https://www.cs.princeton.edu/~appel/modern/ml/

* Compiling with Continuations: https://www.amazon.com/Compiling-Continuations-Andrew-W-Appe...

I second Modern compiler implementation in ML. I'd also add Types and Programming Languages by Pierce, commonly referred to as TAPL for background on type systems. https://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/tapl/
