You'd like or You had like? What is more common? Both to speak and write. I think "you'd like" is better, but is very difficult recognize the little difference in the sound

We'd never say 'You had like'. It doesn't exist as a phrase, and it makes no sense at grammatically. The correct form is 'You'd like' as in 'I think that you'd like this book'. The 'd' is a contraction of 'would'. It's a conditional form, and we use it for offers and invitations. 'Would you like to come for dinner?'

Just to add to SuKi's good answer, the <'d> can be a contraction of either "would" or "had". Here, it's for would, so "you would like". An example of "you had" could be "you'd been there before."
