    I am looking for recommendations for Physics related books that I can read outside the classroom that would be interesting. My favourite topics in class have been Astrophysics and Particles and Quantum. Nanotechnology interested me from a sample lecture I went to. I am currently in my second year of A Levels

    The Feynmann Lectures are a perennial favourite, and should be reasonably accessible to you (maybe not the quantum book if you haven't done matrices).

    Currently in the same year as you, the books I liked the most were Schrodinger's Kittens by John Gribbin (you might want to read the first book as well though 'In search of Schrodinger's Cat, also very good), The Emperor's New Mind by Roger Penrose, Godel Escher Bach by Douglas Hofstadter (this book is A LOT of effort to read imo, was worth it in the end tho) and Our Mathematical Universe by Max Tegmark
