I know, I know a generic question .. but I recently purchased a Nikon D5200. I understand the basics but I am trying to get to the "next level". Any tips?

I know the basics. I know what telephoto and wide angle are, I know what aperture, shutter speed and ISO do. I know what aperture priority mode is and why it is a good idea to use it. I know when to use my walkaround 18-55m lens and when to use my prime. I get the basics.
What I would like is to become better, so that looking at my photographs one can instantly tell they are taken with a DSLR.
I live in a super small town in the middle of nowhere (Champaign, IL) so I guess going to take a course or a class of any sort is ruled out (if anyone knows of any, please let me know).
Are there any good books? I see some D5200 specific ones on Amazon, and they all have amazing reviews so I am lost .. is the D5200 for dummies a good book? Any other suggestions?
yes, I understand experience means a lot and I am trying to get better, but thought I could also do something else on the side.
