If you are interested in a specific field of biology, then you may want to ask for book suggestions for this particular field. I think that most biologists that come from a background in physics are in the fields of theoretical evolutionary biology, bioinformatics and biophysics (incl. molecular biophysics).
Here are a bunch of other posts asking for book recommendations that I imagine you may like reading about.
And eventually you may want to read Value of mathematical models in biology although the post has been closed.
Of course, you might want to read a bunch of wikipedia pages such as Biophysics, Molecular Biophysics, Mathematical and Theoretical Biology, Biostatistics, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics.
