I am looking to apply for economics this autumn and thought I'd do some summer reading on behavioural economics, do you have any recommendations? I have already read nudge and thinking, fast and slow!

Predictably Irrational is extremely popular.

Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman is the book to start with. It provides a really great base for the rest of the harder books, of which:
Nudge by Thaler and Sunstein
Scarcity by Mullainathan and Shafir
Predictably irrational by Dan Ariely
Exotic Preferences: Behavioral Economics and Human Motivation by Lowenstein
A lot of those books came from the foundation of Kahneman. If you can read his papers as well, they're very useful

I'm reading Misbehaving by Thaler and it's pretty good.
