When the tags said 'slow romance' and 'torture', it wasn't kidding. The MC goes through a series of different tortures throughout the entire book ... more>>
Spoiler

including physical torture upon her soul, a miscarriage inflicted by the ML himself, countless times of heartbreak etc...

[collapse]
even though the ML's pain is not to be overlooked but in my opinion the MC made up for it all. Not to mention the ML gives up easily...

I don't know. I honestly do not like this book. It's an endless game of you-run-I-chase and I-run-you-chase. It's so tiring.

If you like a lot of misunderstandings between the MC and ML and a heck ton of reader-frustration, go ahead and read this book. <<less

I've read this book two years ago, and I still keep rereading it.

This book is a great read for anyone who enjoys a bit of everything: OP-ish characters, comedic friends, fluff romance, serious fighting, ... more>>

broken shoulders,

[collapse]
and some of that heroic save-the-world stuff--but don't get the MC wrong, she's not saving the world because it's heroic. For more spoilers, read the book yourself.

6/5 recommended!

P.S. For those people who said that the story is slow, please, the chapters are not even remotely long. Don't judge a 2.7K+ chapters book just after you've read 60 chapters. <<less

Demon Wang’s Golden Favorite Fei

Considering I finished reading this book at least a year ago, and I still remember it was trash, I honestly don't recommend it (I mean, you can still read it, really). Sure, the MC and ML's relationship is sweet and all but this book is just another one of those cliche stories with OP MC and MLs and stupid (female) antagonists that fall in love with the ML at first sight and try to kill the MC and then, tables turned, they die instead.

So it starts out introducing the MC who has already transmigrated and integrated herself in this world for what, 4, 5 years (and has become really OP in that time period) who returns to her 'home' (which, personally, I think is stupid, because obviously she can live pretty well off on her own--she literally doesn't have to care about a bunch of people who don't want her there) only to find her fiance (I remember it was some prince) decided to break off the engagement and then she got engaged to ML...

[collapse]

Literally at this point I'm already like, why does she even bother? (pls write a better plot)

Spoiler

SO, moving on, MC gets some admirers, ML gets some admirers, and a lot of cliche stuff happens ie. people trying to kill the MC to get the ML, the ex-fiance regretting breaking off the engagement, some business agreement with the prince of another country, said prince liking the MC, ML getting jealous... (okay, I admit I don't remember much of what happens in between)

Later on, MC finds out that she is 'blood related' to the ML and panics because it's incest and she knows it's wrong but she still loves him and all that, and then she is relieved when ML when he says that he's actually adopted by her parents and that they have no blood relation but they decide to keep mum about it because his real identity is real sensitive and should not be revealed.

Fast forward through a lot of details that I don't remember, MC finds out that oh, she's not the only one who's transmigrated. Apparently, the person who singlehandedly caused her death in her previous life is also here (and the young master of some Peng Lai? island or something) is out to find her because he loves her and wants to be with her even after she refused him and stuff.

After all that drama, the MC is pregnant and the gu (a type of poison) in the ML is transferred to the fetus and the MC and ML try to get rid of it through a series of trials in some tribe. Seriously?

The ending is happy...I think.

[collapse]

Conclusion: 1/5 because of bad/overly-cliche/easily-predicted plot and stupid/cliche characters.

On a side note, Volare does a good job of translating novels. Thank you. <<less

Pampered Poisonous Royal Wife

Thought I'd give some input since I just finished it, so:-

  1. The beginning can be a bit slow to some people. (*cough*Me*cough*)
  2. There's a lot of palace intrigue/politics (however which way you want to put it)
  3. It's a bit longer than necessary (I might even say it's boring at certain points). I mean, yes, it's good to see that it's realistic by not immediately taking down the antagonists in one go and the MC is smart where she takes almost every bit of detail into consideration but the second half of the story is just... continuously catching the same fish and letting it loose back only to catch it back again...
  4. The romance is sweet (I guess?), MC and ML can be really shy sometimes then really bold other times (but like I said above, can be a bit boring at some point)
  5. There's a bit of incestuous themes towards the 2/3 of the story but it's really just a bit.
    Spoiler

    If you consider uncle-niece relationship incestuous... (They're not blood-related)

Into the World of Medicine

The whole book is all about the MC getting to the apex of the whole world? realm? becoming strong enough to stand beside the ML because she likes/loves him and wants to be worthy of him but honestly I still do not get how the both of them fell in love in the first place.

Some parts of the story are interesting, I guess, but once you start reading too many similar novels it gets... predictable.

So 3/5 to that.

Eight Treasures Trousseau

I actually read this before TBAVW, and I still like this better. Mainly because I like smart characters and both MC and ML are smart people, and I like their dynamic. This book is all about slow, but it's not slow enough that it will make you think it's draggy (at least not me anyway), the speed is just about right for this story.

I especially liked chapter 55 and 64.

5/5 recommended for people who are interested!
