After been doing a few SC problems. I have noticed that my biggest challange is parallelism. I am a non-native and looking for a book that especially emphasizes parallelism. Or any other advice for that matter that may improve this skill would be highly appreciated.

After having used two of the available sources, I can assure you that if one does a thorough study of MGMAT SC guide, he/she will absolutely be able to nail any parallelism question. Complex types involving simple gerunds and complex gerunds will become quite easy. If somehow you are still not convinced, then go for e-GMAT. Apart from these sources, I cannot comment on any other guide.
Hope that helps.

Just get the sentence correction guide from Manhattan GMAT. It is really that good.

Another thing you might want to consider is to start reading some fiction books. Take a look at this thread. Also, take a look at Vandygrad11's post. Learning rules, such as parallelism, is important, but to really do well on the verbal part, one must develop intuition, which is why reading is important.
