High-res (by Aaron Miller)
Another recommendation from me! If you’re into non-fiction, or even if you’re not, Bad Science is extremely interesting and makes you think. 
In this book, Ben Goldacre aims to highlight ridiculous and unscientific claims made by so-called nutritionists (like Gilliant McKeith), journalists (and others in the media) and pharmaceutical industries, from the myths of homeopathy, detox treatments and “antioxidants”, to the dangerous and unnecessary MMR scandal (“the MMR jab causes autism”) in the UK. 

As a Sociology student, I found it very valuable and interesting. The book is accessable, funny and most importantly, educational - even if you’re not from the UK.
