Mathematical physicists please help!
So I really want to get good at mathematical physics. Below is a list of books I could get from various libraries, but I don't know which one's I should start with and which to do next and so on. I currently understand intro CM, EM, and QM. My math skills are very basic (ODES as of now). I thank you for your time.
Mathematical Physics :
1) Mathematical methods for physics and engineering - Riley, Hobson
2) Math methods in physics and engineering with Mathematica - F. Cap
3) Applied Mathematical Methods in Theoretical Physics - Masujima M.
4) A Guided Tour of Mathematical Physics - Roel Snieder
5) A Course in Modern Mathematical Physics - Groups, Hilbert
6) Equations of Mathematical Physics - Bitsadze A.V.
7) Mathematical Tools for Physics - J. Nearing
8) Mathematical Methods for Physicists - a Concise Introduction - T. Chow
9) The Fourier Transform And Its Applications - Bracewell
10) Calculus Of Variations With Applications To Physics & Engineering - R. Weinstock
11) Determinants and their applications in mathematical physics - Vein R., Dale P.
12) Geometry, Topology and Physics - M.Nakahara

20) Nonlinear Physics with Mathematica for Scientists and Engineers - R. Ennis, G. McGuire
21) Chaos - Classical and Quantum - P. Civitanovic
22) Chaos and Structures in Geophysics and Astrophysics - Provenzale & Balmforth
23) From calculus to chaos - Acheson
24) Mathematical topics between classical and quantum mechanics - Landsman N.P.
25) Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics Vol 1 - Functional Analysis 2nd. ed. - M. Reed
26) Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics Vol 2 - Fourier Analysis, Self Adjointness -2nd ed., - M. Reed
27) Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics Vol 3 - Scattering Theory - M. Reed
28) Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics Vol 4 - Analysis of Operators - M. Reed
29) Numerical Quantum Dynamics - W. Schweizer
30) Quantum Geometry - A Statistical Field Theory Approach - Ambje, Durhuus B., Jonsson T
31) Supersymmetric methods in quantum and statistical physics - Junker G.
32) Path integrals and their applications in quantum, statistical, and solid state physics - Papadopoulos , J. T. Devreese
33) Path Integrals in Physics Volume 1 Stochastic Process & Quantum Mechanics - M. Chaichian, A. Demichev
34) Path integrals in physics, vol.2. QFT, statistical physics and modern applications - Chaichian M., Demichev A.
also, feel free to modify the list in any way. I hope to dedicate two solid years on the subject, and at the end, be able to look at any physics branch and undertand the math behind it (even string theory).

You have to be patient to learn physics. It won't happen overnight, so don't rush it. It always feels like you don't know enough and that will never go away, so you should just accept it. Haste makes waste. You don't want to spend too much time dwelling on things, either, but if you go too fast, it won't hang together and you'll be wasting your time.
