Hi, I’m going into Y12 this September and really enjoy physics; I’ve read the (cliché) A Brief History of Time, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Nature’s Numbers (mainly maths but had some physics in it). Can anyone recommend any other great physics books, as I really want to read even more! Can be anything physics related, and I’d love to be introduced to new topics, but for context I really enjoy quantum and classical mechanics. And astrophysics in general is also really interesting. Thank you!

You may find some reading in the history and especially philosophy of science generally or physics specifically interesting. A lot of the philosophy of physics in relation to quantum mechanics and philosophy of space/time fundamentally underpins the actual "physics" of those areas, rather than just being something alongside or that follows from the "practicalities" of the physics involved.
