True Martial World
January 23, 2017
Status: Completed
I suggest reading this novel arc by arc as the author has a habit of writing a few chapters of the side character's results etc before revealing the MC's OP results, wowing the crowd lol. It is still nonetheless an enjoyable read for me.

(Edit) Overall opinion: It got really boring towards the end... I don't know how I can change the ratings but it's not five stars anymore. However, the first few hundred chapters, although quite standard is really worth the read. The middle parts are repetitive when he... more>> travels from world to world but when I'm bored and just want to read about a main character secretly being OP and shocking the crowd, I drop by to read the arc lol.

I honestly feel that this is a good novel, even though majority... Or maybe almost half of the reviews are not in favour of it, the novel rating shows it all, most of us think it's pretty good. I would say I liked the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom arc the most, it was great.

The Black Armoured Demon God's arc, however, was quite bad... Makes me want to minus a star...
Spoiler

The antagonist of that arc WOULD NOT DIE. Maybe the author was trying to be different by creating an OP antagonist that was difficult to kill but that backfired. Many of us readers really just want him to quickly die because the arc and fights were getting seriously draggy.

[collapse]

I also like that there is no harem and the girl is as talented as him, does not need to rely on him that much, however, their interaction time is limited making her seem one dimensional. But she is a brave girl would not hesitate to protect what is important to him
Spoiler

His sister Jiang Xiao Rou

[collapse]
so I still like her. <<less

The Job of an Imperial Concubine
July 9, 2019
Status: Completed
I think that this is very much what To be a virtuous wife would be if the two leads did not meet at the right time.

Quoting Jiang Yongyu in TBAVW:

... more>>
Spoiler

"The Empress, she's the right person that he met at the right time. This is probably what is called fate."

If they had met later, like if the Emperor had already ascended the throne, then the Empress would, at maximum, become the Emperor's most favored woman but not his only one. She, herself, would not become Heng fei, but one of the many feipin the Emperor would have forgotten. She may not have even gotten the rank of a guipin.

[collapse]

because they met when the Feng Jin was already emperor for close to 10 years, it was unfortunate but

Spoiler

Up to the very end, Zhuang Luoyan was never Feng Jin's only woman and he never loved her the way He Heng was devoted to Qingju. It is also because of this that Zhuang Luoyan never truly loved Feng Jin.

[collapse]

The difference between He Heng and Feng Jin was that

Spoiler

He Heng knew Qingju hadn't given her full heart to him and he also knew why - she didn't have the assurance that he will only love her and protect her, so for self-protection and to survive, she couldn't give her full heart. It was his persistence that won her over, he showed her through his actions that she could trust him. Feng Jin couldn't give Luoyan that same security - she wasn't his only woman and he didn't love her as deeply. This meant that she was in constant danger of losing the emperor's favour no matter how slim the chance was. I was glad that she never fell in love because if she did, she could never see things as clearly which was really needed in this novel because the emperor was not above using her to maintain the power balance. Also, because she never loved, she wasn't hurt - Some of Feng Jin's actions were, although understandable as an emperor, disappointing as a man/ lover because he simply did not love deeply enough. Also, unlike He Heng, until the end, Feng Jin never knew that Luoyan didn't love him. He really thought that she truly loved him and like one concubine said at the end, he was pitiful, really pitiful because he couldn't even see through Luoyan's fake affections.

[collapse]

Parts I didn't like:

Spoiler

Tbh, Feng Jin's indifference to his children made him a really trash absent father. He already had a bunch of kids when Luoyan transmigrated over. I don't remember the princesses ever being mentioned and he wasn't concerned about his princes either, I imagine them only seeing him during events or when they caused trouble. If Luoyan's son wasn't a genius and the other princes not as capable, Feng Jin would be like those trashy emperors in other novels only doting on his favourite consort's son. (Although I think Feng Jin is too level-headed to make him crown prince if he wasn't the most capable.)

[collapse]

Spoiler

I felt that although I know what kind person Luoyan was - calm, decisive, rational and willing to take risks, I also never really knew who she was. It's like some sort of invisible veil around her? She is a fighter who is very perceptive and understood the emperor's heart. So the way she acted - from pretending to be honest with him (she was taking a gamble), to crying in despair (nothing was wrong at all), being upset that he didn't trust her (she wasn't upset cuz she didn't even love him) etc, was all to gain the emperor's affections or manipulate situations. I think her occasional monologues scolding the emperor and calling the concubines his little wives cute yet at the same time I felt that just like the emperor who will never know her for who she really is, I wouldn't know what she really is like with her guard down and what she's actually feeling when not acting (although I think we all know her better than the emperor lol).

[collapse]

This novel is more realistic than TBAVW and it is interesting to see how a beautiful woman (who isn't the prettiest) without talent in the four arts could rise in ranks and dominate from understanding the workings of the harem and the emperor's heart. Honestly her life is really tiring, constantly acting and being cautious, but she didn't have a choice. Feng Jin's life isn't that great either because he not only has to think about the matters in court/ for the country, he also has to maintain the power balance in the harem (which would affect the court) by choosing who to favour more and who can give birth... I actually think that why Luoyan could start being be so favoured in the first place is firstly because her family background is clean and not too powerful, secondly she is 'honest' and also gives him a place to let his guard down/ relax.

It's well written but I gave it 4 stars because I go in reading these type of novels hoping that the ML and FL fall in love. (But given the plot, I'm so glad the FL didn't, oh well) <<less

Great novel, really enjoyable. Translation quality is good too. I really like the fact that he has a super OP position, just that he can't fully utilise it. It might not deviate much from regular Xianxia but I highly recommend it. Also his latent talent is in fact, very high, he can actually rise to power without OP treasures like most MCs, the treasures just speed up his growth process.

Poison Genius Consort

So I read ahead using the raws and I like the fact that the romance is quite believable, not like most novels where the male lead will have some unexplainable interest in the female lead. He actually takes very long to actually fall for her (Which some people may not like). Their relationship is also not very clear cut because the author writes about the little actions/ progress in the relationship but never clearly states it which makes it seem all the more realistic. I also like the fact that... more>> she sometimes retaliates but is not entirely vicious or without reason, let's say when the Empress Dowager etc all treat her badly, she doesn't randomly poison them just for revenge. But she does teach others a lesson such as the princess (But she eventually healed her anyway).

Also in the earlier chapters, comments were hating on the male lead which reminded me that I also did not like the male lead at first. I have no idea when he grew on me! At this point of the novel where I'm at (Late 100s), he actually likes her [Not explicitly stated but shown - another thing I like about this novel] but has not fully trusted her or come to love her yet. <<less

Ostentatious Zhao Yao
January 25, 2019
Status: Completed
Highly recommended!

I love this novel! There's a good amount of humour (and cringe) and a really touching romance. When the male lead confirms she's back he goes through great lengths for her.

I think Moqing is easily one of, if not my favourite male lead. Zhao yao is also quite smart and straightfoward, a very likable female lead. At first I thought she was dense but actually she was just living in denial.

The Human Emperor
April 16, 2017

It's pretty good, I'm getting some TTNH vibes from this book. Well it certainly has its flaws and some failure in logic but compared to some other xianxias with mindless killing and power ups, this is not bad. I find the way he lived his life when he first transcended to be very believable, most MCs just seem to adapt so well after transcending so this is a nice change. I also like the fact that he has very normal relationships with women in the novel. (From what I've read... more>> so far)

Spoiler

Unlike TTNH where MC has physical reactions just by carrying a child qing wu... and even though she's the love of his life, he goes on to marry 3 other women.

Pretty interesting plot, OP MC, and scheming + politics, the novel also questions the morals of the different characters eg Uncle and MC with their different views- to save or not to save, to help or not to help. I can see the MC's character development, he becomes more caring to the people around him, a little bit less ruthless. But am I the only one who finds the females characters in this novel super annoying?? Like the 2 harem members introduced so far are "talented beauties from good families"... more>> but I can only see them as infatuated whiny spoilt brats. I found the Dugu girl annoying since she was first introduced. <<less

Rebirth of The Heavenly Demon
June 26, 2017
Status: c68
Mostly him being able to do things others cannot because "it's me, the once strongest man in the country". I find these parts a bit annoying but the plot is quite interesting, I want to know the mystery behind his death and his journey in discovering what he could not when he held so much power. Oh and the MC acts quite like his age, he doesn't become a rash youngster all hyped up for revenge/ trashing everyone like in some other novels. It's like age regression physically and mentally...

On... more>> a side note, I actually don't like the female lead
Spoiler

no matter how much of a scum the previous him was, it did not warrant her the right to BEAT HIM TO DEATH. It's stated in the novel that she beat him till he nearly died, so it's not explicitly stated... but if he didn't die how did the MC take over his body? Given how strong she was, she could have controlled her strength...

I wonder why this is not popular yet! There's comedy and mystery plus romance. I have to say that I totally did not expect to laugh when reading this novel, where's the comedy tag! I would say that the it's slightly creepy, not scary or anything but it occasionally gives me the creeps like those unknown phone calls in crime dramas lol. I suspect the novel is based on multiple crimes all connected to a big one targeting the FL. Looking at the amount of chapters (which is rare for... more>> crime novels, I think they are usually less than 200 chapters), I hope the suspense and comedy remains.

Edit: I found the indecisiveness of both leads in the romance department a bit draggy... <<less

History’s Number 1 Founder

This is hilarious. It's an interesting twist and later on, even as the focus shifts and the novel is no longer centered around the parody of MCs (his disciples) but his cultivation and other sects etc, it's still pretty well written. It's a bit similar to library of heaven's path- MC a teacher/ mentor figure with some cheat skills. I'd say this novel is on par with other comedy/ parody novels like My disciple died yet again, history's strongest senior brother, cultivation chat group.

Hilarious book which focuses more on esports and pro-gaming compared to other gaming novels which an interesting change. It is also more realistic compared to other gaming type novels. Ye Xiu is supposed to be like a God but the way he interacts with other guild leader makes him seem a bit like a scammer hahaha. Really enjoyed this book, even if gaming novels are not my cup of tea.
