    I got mine about 2 weeks before the start of term, but if you go on here: http://www.hull.ac.uk/english/underg...gle/index.html and click each first year module, scroll to the bottom of each page and it will list the books. However, sometimes they change the texts (or even modules) over the summer, so it won't necessarily be 100% correct. I found this out when I bought Wuthering Heights and then they replaced it with Mary Barton. But it will give you an idea.
