All You Can BooksRomance Novels

It is time to take a little break. A break from everything to read or listen feel good romance novels. If you haven’t already check out PART 1 of Romance novels on All You Can Books.

The Monk: A Romance by M. G. Lewis

The Monk: A Romance | M. G. Lewis

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

Matthew Gregory Lewis’s The Monk: A Romance is a story of frustrated and unrequited desire between mentor and pupil mixed with elements of the supernatural. It includes several subplots: rape, torture, incest and demonic plots. It is the old story of the forces of good versus the forces of evil, except that in this one evil comes out ahead.

A film adaption, The Monk, was made by French-German director Dominik Moll in 2011. It was shot in Madrid and stars Vincent Cassel, Déborah François, Geraldine Chaplin, and Sergi López.

This novel shares a number of traits with Ann Radcliffe gothic novels, The Italian and The Mysteries of Udolpho.

Recommended for fans of Dean Koontz and Stephen King.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina | Leo Tolstoy

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage to follow her heart and must endure the hypocrisies of society.

History of Tom Jones, a Foundling by Henry Fielding

History of Tom Jones, a Foundling | Henry Fielding

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

Tom Jones is a foundling discovered on the property of a very kind, wealthy landowner, Squire Allworthy. Tom grows into a vigorous and lusty, yet honest and kind-hearted, youth. He develops affection for his neighbor’s daughter, Sophia Western. However, Tom’s status as a bastard causes Sophia’s father and Allworthy to oppose their love. The book sizzles with prostitution and plenty of sexual promiscuity.

This Is the End by Stella Benson

This Is the End | Stella Benson

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

It is the story of a Family halfheartedly searching for a missing relation who does not want to be found, while just off-stage, World War I is raging on the continent. It is a story about ordinary people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. The things they do are less important than the ways in which they do them: often comic, occasionally tragic, but always touching and true to life. It reminds us that Poetry and Romance can be found anywhere, hidden beneath the surface of the most commonplace things.

Eyes Like the Sea by Mór Jókai

Eyes Like the Sea | Mór Jókai

This book is available in E-books and Audiobook format.

He was a painter, a poet, a novelist. He lived during the Hungarian revolution and his love of freedom meant his life was often in peril. She was his first love, this girl with the eyes like the sea. She was at heart noble, good and loving. What an excellent lady might have been made out of this woman, if she had only met with a husband who, in the most ordinary acceptance of the word, had been a good fellow, as is really the case with about nine men out of every ten. But she always managed to draw the unlucky tenth out of the urn of destiny. And so she spurned his true love in favor of a high-flying dandy. He went on to pursue a life of politics and she to follow her capricious heart. But yet, throughout her life, she kept returning to him, and to the end, of all men, she loved him perhaps best of all.

Java Head

Java Head by Joseph Hergesheimer

Java Head by Joseph Hergesheimer

Java Head is a novel of the American merchant marine at the beginning of the great clipper ship era. It is laid in Salem, when that city was still a port rich with the traffic of the East Indies; a story of choleric ship masters, charming girls, and an aristocratic Manchu woman in carmine and jades and crusted gold. There is a drama as secret and poisonous as opium, lovely old gardens with lilac trees and green lattices, and elm-shaded streets ending at the harbor with the brigs unloading ivory from Africa and the ships crowding on their topsails for Canton. It is a romantic novel-and yet true-rather than a study of drab manners; there is no purpose in it other than the pleasure to be found in the spectacle of life supported by high courage and made beautiful by women in peacock shawls.

The Soul of London

The Soul of London by Ford Madox Ford

The Soul of London by Ford Madox Ford

Most of us love places very much as we may love what, for us, are the distinguished men of our social lives. […] We are, all of us who are Londoners, paying visits of greater or less duration to a Personality that, whether we love it or very cordially hate it, fascinates us all. And, paying my visit, I have desired to give some such record. I have tried to make it anything rather than encyclopaedic, topographical, or archaeological. To use a phrase of literary slang I have tried to “get the atmosphere” of modern London — of the town in which I have passed so many days; of the immense place that has been the background for so many momentous happenings to so many of my fellows.’

Five Cookbooks every cook should own! – Part 2

All You Can Books, top picks for cooking books

“Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors—it’s how you combine them that sets you apart.”
– Wolfgang Puck

Let us look at the top picks by All You Can Books:

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six by Juliet Corson

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six | Juliet Corson

Now available in E-books and Audiobook version.

Juliet Corson has put together a few books on economic housekeeping, and this is a fine example. Almost 150 years after publication (1878), it has become quite impossible to feed anyone on 25 cents, but the principles on how to cook economically have not changed much. In any case, modern readers can still enjoy the recipes Ms. Corson has compiled, and learn from her introductory notes.

A Little Cook Book for a Little Girl by Caroline French Benton

A Little Cook Book for a Little Girl | Caroline French Benton

Join Margaret, a little girl who really wants to learn how to properly cook and bake everything from seafood to cake, as she sets out to make all the recipes she can find from her family, friends and the rest of the world around her. A fun and informative cookbook with a light narrative!

A Little Book for A Little Cook by L. P. Hubbard

A Little Book for A Little Cook | L. P. Hubbard

Now available in E-book and Audiobook version.

This charming little book compiles together a number of recipes, set out in an easy-to-understand manner, along with a poetic story about the stages of bread production. This book was produced as a promotional for a flour production company called Pillsbury. This is a “modern” update compared to the original edition of the book. This version has exact oven temperature settings for each recipe included in a preface for the book, along with more precise suggestions for the baking time. The book has been written for children, however, I am certain that adults could enjoy the book equally as much as a child would.

Marion Harland’s Cookery For Beginners by Marion Harland

Marion Harland's Cookery For Beginners | Marion Harland

Now available in E-book and Audiobook version.

With this book, Marion Harland presents the reader and listener with “A Series of Familiar Lessons for Young Housekeepers”. Housekeeping is an unavoidable aspect of the lives of most of us, and so the best course of action is to learn to enjoy it. Cooking can be great fun, and for those beginners in the art of cookery among us, the 14 lessons of Ms Harland are a very good beginning.

The Cooking Manual by Juliet Corson

The Cooking Manual | Juliet Corson

Now available in E-book and Audiobook version.

Food is one of the necessities but also one of the greatest pleasures. Knowing how to cook a good meal is therefore extremely important for all of us. Maybe you can find some inspiration for tonight’s dinner in this 1877 cook book by Juliet Corson.

TOP 5 Crime and Mystery Novels on All You Can Books:

Murder at Bridge by Anne Austin

Murder at Bridge | Anne Austin

Inhabitants of the small town of Hamilton joke that they are afraid of being the dummy when playing Bridge, for fear of being murdered. Meanwhile, Special Investigator Bonnie Dundee demands a re-enactment of the ‘death hand’ to try and find out why, and how, the victim was killed during a high society Bridge party.

Recommended for fans of John Grisham, Scott Turow, Michael Connelly, Janet Evanovich, and David Baldacci.

Each Dawn I Die by Mark Tullius

Each Dawn I Die | Mark Tullius

Each Dawn I Die contains ten thoroughly twisted tales from Mark Tullius. The setting of each tale varies from the next, yet the idea that permeates all of them is the author’s preoccupation with discovering evil in the ordinary.

Also available in E-book and Audiobook format

Recommended for fans of John Grisham, James Patterson, Stephen King, Janet Evanovich, Scott Turow, and David Baldacci.

The Fall River Tragedy by Edwin H. Porter

The Fall River Tragedy | Edwin H. Porter

This is a True Story!!

The story of how Lizzie Borden supposedly murdered her parents has passed into American folklore, partly thanks to the albeit inaccurate playground rhyme, “Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.”

Here we have the ‘true’ story, as reported by the local police reporter who attended the trial and lived only streets away from the Borden home with his young wife. After the trial, Porter ‘disappeared’ and it was widely speculated he had either been murdered or bribed to disappear in order to suppress the book.

His reappearance some time later put paid to the first theory. After his death at age 39 from tuberculosis, a new theory emerged, that he had been away for treatment while keeping his illness secret.

Meanwhile, the trial itself was noteworthy for several reasons: it was one of the first to be followed by the nationwide press, providing a template for today’s tabloid and cable coverage of major trials; it also had some distinguished personnel: one of the prosecutors, Frank Moody, later became the attorney general of the United States and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt; and Borden’s defense attorney, George Robinson, was the former governor of Massachusetts. The appearance of Professor Wood of Harvard University was an early use of an expert witness at trial.

The Clue by Carolyn Wells

The Clue | Carolyn Wells

On the eve of her wedding day, Madeleine Van Norman, a beautiful young lady who is soon to come into her family fortune is found dead, apparently stabbed with an ominous blood-stained letter opener found nearby. There is nobody within the household who is not considered a suspect by the police, but how could a killer have slipped through the doors of Madeleine’s locked bedroom? It must have been suicide, as a note was found lying on a table near her body. Or was it? An intriguing mystery ensues which hinges on the discovery of a single, all-important clue.

Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas | Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas is a Victorian Gothic mystery/thriller novel by the Anglo-Irish writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu. It is notable as one of the earliest examples of the locked room mystery subgenre. It is not a novel of the supernatural (despite a few creepily ambiguous touches), but does show a strong interest in the occult and in the ideas of Swedenborg. (Summary by Wikipedia)
