    Give '50 Physics Ideas You Really Need to Know' a try - it's a really good overall introduction in that it covers 50 different concepts, from pretty much all major areas of physics, in four pages each. You could then get some more specific popular science books on the areas you found interesting
    I can only recommend what I've read, so if you end up interested in particle physics, try anything by Frank Close - I've found his books really accessible and not a chore to read like some physics books can end up as. There are no doubt other equally good in all areas of physics, though I wouldn't know any specific ones.
