recommend me some reading

Hit a major plateau in my theory learning over the last 3 - or 4 months and i cant seem to find any information. Pretty much ive realised that il now how to pay for some brain food instead of getting my info from the web.

Anyway ill start but letting you know the things i do know so you can tell me where to go>

Major and Minor keys including commonly use chord substitutions (although i would like to learn more about this)
Chord construction + inversion - (limited when it come to sharpening on flattening certain degrees)
Basic cadences ( perfect , imperfect deceptive)
Very basic harmony principles

If anyone could advise me on a book to read to build of this knowledge it would be much appreciated

Go back and relearn Chord Construction. Knowing chord shapes is not the same thing.

Look at your voicings and learn the intervals that give that chord it's quality.

example:

A13

5 x 5 6 7 7

intervals of that chord:

R x 7th 3rd 13th 9th

now you can get a flat13 and a flat9 by just moving your pinky down a fret. So, go study your voicings.

In the past, I've used the Benward Music Theory books. I like them. They also have good exercises.
