Maybe start with online articles on number theory rather than books?

Most textbooks on number theory are a bit unsatisfactory, since most of the classic problems that have been solved were solved by creating or importing chunks of new maths [abstract algebra, galois theory, statistical tracking of prime frequency...] into number theory.

So number-theory books usually give me the feeling of being a hasty overview of big topics pulled together, bundled together with the still-unsolved classic problems which those big topics have to-date failed to unlock. A bit of a mish-mash of rather difficult maths and a clump of questions the maths hasn't sorted out yet. At least to me....

Perhaps more worthwhile to just dig straight into a single specific pure-maths topic, like algebra or analysis.

Just a suggestion.
