If you delete "up" then it is still correct English, but you lose a little bit of the meaning. "smiled up at him" means that she looked upwards, or raised her head, as she smiled.

That's OK, but 'up' gives us more information.

eg He was probably taller than her.

Are you asking for a single website or book that will somehow teach you how to read novels flawlessly? There is no such thing. The more English you read, the better your English reading will get, that's all. There is no magic shortcut. I would say, though, try to choose material that suits your present level. You want material that is a bit challenging, but not so challenging that you hardly understand any of it and you are constantly frustrated.

The purpose of this forum is for people to ask questions, so you are not annoying anybody.
