I'd spend 15$ to buy one month at laracasts to watch few series, and especially
these are great series, he explains very very well and btw, you could download series and watch them later on your computer.
After this series, watch free series for Laravel, start build applications, learn Symfony, YouTube is full of tutorials, blogs, articles, everything!
If you still want books https://laracasts.com/recommended-reading here are some recommended books, https://www.amazon.com/Modern-PHP-Features-Good-Practices/dp/1491905018 - this one is more appropriated to you!
Much of that is free courses with code on Github
Also the php manual can be downloaded http://php.net/download-docs.php
Note if you download, get the larger one with notes, those notes have excellent examples. But all is viewable online anyway.

Cost of lunch must have gone up.
