**Graph Theory**
Reinhard Diestel
Springer Graduate Texts in Mathematics
Way back in 2006 I learnt graph theory from this book. It is more dense and covers slightly different material than I will do in the lectures, but you may still find it useful, particularly for the first half of the course. It can be read online for free.

This is a famous review article with a lot of information about the properties of real-world networks and mathematical models. Section 3 in particular may be very useful for the coursework.
