That is a very broad statement would you mind explaining what you are looking for a bit clearer?

Thank you!
I am a freshman of biology, our university have not give us any course of biology,but other subjects such as mathematics,physics etc. But I want to begin my biology study for myself, but I don't not what kinds of book is suitable for me. There are so many subjects of biology and so many kinds of books on one subjects, it's difficult for me to make a choice.

Thank you again!

Well, welcome to the wonderful world of life sciences!
If you want to study biology by yourself go outside see the animals, the birds, the flowers… because you won't see many of them during your degree. If you want to read something you might want to look for some popular science books like "the double helix" or "the selfish gene".
During your degree you will learn enough conventional biology, and after one semester you will pretty much understand what goes where, but the curiosity and the excitement from novel things might be lost.
So enjoy biology and don't take too much on yourself.
