    I am looking at studying biochemistry or something similar. Anyone got any suggestions for anything to read over the summer that is related to biochemistry?

    Read the entirety of "On the Origin of Species".

    If you finish that, "The Selfish Gene" is an interesting read.
    Also, try the Discworld series. It's got nothing to do with Biochemistry, but it is bloody good.

    Meh, go with the selfish gene. I found Darwin's book boring and outdated (not his fault, of course).

    Another one is The folly of fools by Robert Trivers. None of the two is strictly biochemical, really, but they'll allow you to better frame your thinking when you consider your biology
