Books would not help you to understand paper 1 texts. That is more to do with the literature course paper 1 but then again none of the works read in the literature course will come up in paper 1. Paper 1 in lang&lit, especially higher level has more non-literary texts than literary ones and there is a tendency to just throw one literary text in (out of 4).

Unfortunately, there are no books or any such thing available for paper, though you can surely find some guides online. There will never be any literary texts for paper 1 SL, but for HL there is one for contrast and analysis (see the lang&lit guide for details). In the end, it all boils down to how well your teacher guides you on this course.

Actually, I would recommend the English LangLit book by Brad Philpot (Cambridge Publications). It goes into just the perfect amount of detail about how Paper 1 work and what ways are great approaching them. Imo it's the best coursebook for English Langlit, and doesn't have overwhelming amounts of content.
