I can't give you a lot of advice but your topic is massive. What specifically are you going to write about?

If you're after something nice and easy to get your feet wet, then you could try something like "An introduction to Galaxies and Cosmology" by Jones & Melbourne:

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...laxies&f=false

It's not the same book I had at University, but I did use books like that from time to time to get a general understanding of things. They're a nice place to start if you find physics daunting.

If you don't mind getting into some serious maths, then Binney and Tremaine's "Galactic Dynamics" and Binney & Merryfield's "Galactic astronomy" are both incredible books. I can't recommend them highly enough.

https://books.google.co.uk/books/abo...page&q&f=false

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...ronomy&f=false

Those two books are packed with so much useful information that they almost exclusively got me through my entire astrophysics degree material. They're absolutely fantastic!
