Praise be to Allaah.
There is no specific du’aa’ mentioned in the Qur’aan or Sunnah, or in the reliable books of du’aa’s and dhikr, or in the opinions of the reputable scholars, that is to be recited before reading or memorizing Qur’aan. Rather what is prescribed is to seek refuge with Allaah from the accursed Shaytaan before reading, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“So when you want to recite the Qur’aan, seek refuge with Allaah from Shaytaan (Satan), the outcast (the cursed one)” – An-Nahl 16:98Source: 20005: There is no specific du’aa’ to be recited before reading Qur’aan

(1) Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection); (2) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.). (3) Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace).

About This Experiment
This is a personal daily journal entry of Riz Ainuddin, Author of this blog and Maker of IslamAudio app. The intention for this post is to journal the daily progress to memorise the Qur’an and As a witness of an act of worship. It all began when a brother at his work shared with him a YouTube video in Ramadan 1438/2017 of a lecture by Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi. In this video Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shared a story that it is never too late to memorised the entire Qur’an. The inspirational story was of a paediatric doctor, named Dr. Ahmed Nuaina who started at the age where everyone would think it is too late. Now, he is referred to as Shaykh Dr. Ahmed Nuaina. Shaykh Dr. Ahmed Nuaina is perhaps one of the top scholars of Qur’an and recitation alive today. Rizs’ hyphothesis after being motivated by this story, by reciting and reading the Qur’an two lines a day will make him memorise the Qur’an. Also, Journalling his progress in a blog will further enhance his long-term memory and aspiring others to take similar action. May Allah open up the doors and accept it. Ameen.
