Synopsis: As tragedy befalls Xin Siyue, she soon finds herself transmigrated into a novel world as a character. To her disappointment, she became the villainess who obsessively chased after the male protagonist while scheming to tear apart his relationship with his beloved.
To avoid her death route, Xin Siyue carefully avoided the male and female protagonists at every turn. Instead, she went off on her own to enjoy life. But somewhere along the way, she made a mistake: the male protagonist took notice of her!
Xin Siyue’s eyes teared up as she was being kissed in Chen Sinan’s arms. “No! This wasn’t in the plot!”


My review: A very interesting set up, the mc chose to save herself by avoiding the ML and she did it so meticulously that she got the man weirded out. He was initially disgusted with her character but since she transmigrated into that body and started her journey towards saving her new self and family, the ml started getting curious about her and thus the story unfolds!

Although the man that she weds is very powerful, he’s the irredeemable final villain.
All villains are doomed to a bleak ending. And, as this villain’s wife, she’s afraid that her ending won’t be good either
Fortunately, the older sister had gone back in time after having experienced a lifetime of suffering. This prodigal daughter returns to the turning point of her life. Pointing at her younger sister, she demands for her younger sister to hand over her husband.
Looking at this beautifully crying older sister, Ye Zhen swiftly yields and says, “Older sister, don’t worry. I haven’t even done anything with brother-in-law!”

To her shock, she later discovers that she’s pregnant.
With tears in her eyes, her older sister says, “Didn’t you say that nothing happened between the two of you?”

Ye Zhen looks at the great villain that doggedly pursues her. She is utterly and totally doomed.

There’s a great villain lying next to her, and she’s pregnant with a mini villain. How’s she suppose to survive?!

Later on, as Ye Zhen watches the great villain putting the baby down and changing the diaper, she sighs. “There’s nothing that can be done. I’ve already missed the golden opportunity to turn things around. How can I leave now?”


My review: I Loved how the mc was so sure of the ml’s character and just wanted out of that cursed fate! however, the ML wouldn’t let her flee as she wishes! It was fun to read about how the character’s original set up changed once the transmigration of the mc and the rebirth of her older sister. Things may not be as they seem. A good read with a cool female lead trying her best with what she is got!

Synopsis: Su Ran, a music prodigy, woke up transmigrated into a book.
At that point in time, the main story arc in the book had already been completed. As a villainess female supporting character, not only did she need to take over the original owner’s pitiful life in poverty, she also gained an instant son right at his rebellious period.
Ten or so more years from then, the son would turn into a twisted, evil villain. He would appear in one of the extra chapters to pick on the male and female lead’s children.

Su Ran: Son, you shouldn’t be too outstanding.
Su Han: Why not?
Su Ran: ’cause you will be killed.
Su Ran: Son, would you like to learn music from me and become a zen, little fairy boy who only needs to drink dew.
Su Han: No, I want to go into business so I can support you.


My review: I absolutely loved this novel. I mtled it all in one night. It’s not a light one so be careful. The original character that the mc transmigrated into is a very pitiful woman. she was just a teen spoiled and in love with the wrong person and got punished cruelly for it. I usually skip the angsty stuff but I tried my best to read it here because the story just compelled me to it. The MC’s character is the best, you can surely identify with her. Her child, the villain, is the most adorable teenager ever! I loved their relationship and how she salvaged this mother son trust and love. The ML here is just perfect, he accepted the mc with all her painful past without questioning her, he just wanted to make it better for her. His relationship with his son is quite interesting too, I loved their interactions but still needed more. In short a very a good nouvel !

Synopsis: Xu Xinyi woke up and had obtained a system, the system told her that she was a second female lead who would have a miserable end and that she has 2 choices, to endure all grievances and change for the better, or to walk the same road as the original and become a vicious woman.
She chose the second option.
One day Yi Yang couldn’t tolerate it anymore and, at the end of his patience, he demanded a divorce.
Xu Xinyi’s heart felt ecstatic when he put the divorce agreement in front of her but she looked at her husband and with a sorrowful, heartbroken look on her face. Then she waited for her husband to sign.
—“Hurry up! Sign quickly! I can finally leave this hellhole!”
But Yi Yang, who could suddenly hear Xu Xinyi’s thoughts, threw away the pen and said, “Not signing.”

Ever since Yi Yang discovered that he could hear Xu Xingyi’s thoughts, he found that while his wife kept kissing up to him and saying she loved him on the outside, in her heart she would laugh at that and think the complete opposite.
She only loved him on the surface.
“Husband, you are so nice, I love you so much ah~!”
—“I won’t have to be with this arrogant man forever, will I? I am really the most pitiful woman in the whole world!”
Yi Yang ” Xu Xinyi !!!!!”


My review: Hilarious, you will laugh out loud and wouldn’t know how to stop… yes it is that good. I am laughing right now writing this just remembering this gem of a novel. The MC is gold, her best friend is the funniest and the ml’s reactions are priceless. The ML couldn’t help but fall in love with her paradoxal behavior!

Synopsis: “I can’t accept this! I can’t! Even as a ghost, I’m going to spend eternity cursing that your relationship will shatter like glass! Break apart like a pair of mandarin ducks that fly away from each other!” With such a persisting obsession, it would be difficult for the vengeful departed spirit to move on.
Ji Man had only read a light novel to pass the time, but she was unexpectedly pulled into a very strange dream. She had become the novel’s most vicious villainess.
The novel rewinds to the beginning. The villainess that had been ordered to commit suicide reappears onto the stage and begins to follow the plot as she walks toward the novel’s ending once again, to a courtyard deep inside a marquis’s residence. A female lead that’s like the Holy Mother. Countless cannon fodders. The imperial family’s favor…


My review: A Great story with both a cool and strong female lead and an equally strong and clever male lead. They are perfect for each other. The romance is gradual and you can understand how they come to like each other. There are a lot of schemes and palace intrigues but you don’t get confused or bored. It is interesting and not too boring and I found myself invested in all the characters!

But life kept throwing them together and so they formed some kind of friendship. From then on, the story took off. I loved their banter, his flirting, her personality. They were really right for each other.

Synopsis: Born to a house where women were only seen as tools to birth children, I was already in my twenties. I was standing on the crossroads of life.
At my fingertips were close to fifty photos of different men. They were the marriage partner candidates my father had prepared. I stared down at the photos around me and finally picked one.
Choosing him was truly a coincidence.

My review: Although they met through a marriage of convenience, she did fall for him and tried her best to win his heart. A simple story you would say and yet it was so much more. It really is a heartfelt and bittersweet story !

Su Bai watched her quietly. After a long moment, she lifted her lips and smiled: “It was the greatest blessing of my life to have met him.” She then leapt off the steps.

My review: To this day, my heart hurts when I recall this one. It is truly an unfortunate story of love and devotion. I didn’t like the ending the first time I read it but now I have come to appreciate the beauty of it.

Synopsis: That night, I listened to the hymns till dawn, not for serenity, but to seek a sliver of your soul.
That month, I flipped through all the scriptures, not for enlightenment, but to touch the pages where your fingers once lingered.
That year, I knelt on the grounds, my head embracing the dusts, not to pay obeisance to the Gods, but to feel the warmth you left behind.
That life, I wandered through ten thousand great mountains, not in search for an afterlife, but to cross paths with you!
Gao Fei, don’t you think that I have lived through this night, this day, this year, and this lifetime, only to hold your hand and accompany you in this journey of life?

My review:

It truly is a Heartbreaking story! What to say about this one, other than it is sad to the point of madness. Both the mc and ml were driven mad by what had happened to them. They just didn’t meet at the right time of their lives I would like to think!
And I still don’t know how I feel about the mc! I don’t condone what she has done but I still found myself rooting for her. I also think that although both leads had enough heartache to last them several lifetimes but still, I feel ml was the true victim of this ill-fated relationship!

My review: Silly girl in love with a man who doesn’t feel the same for her. She did some bad things to get him resulting in his hatred and disdain yet something unexpectedly made them both see differently. This is cute and sexy story. I enjoyed seeing the ml falling hard for our mc, especially after how he had ignored her all those years during their marriage!
