I loved this story. I think my favorite life time was the first one. Bittersweet, but it left the most emotional impact on me.

Spoiler

Partly the reason why I liked it because the main guy seemed to be more aware of his feelings after that life time. He definitely chased her first all due to her changing "fate" that the Heavens bestowed on her. She was suppose to "chase the husband" and was suppose to "die first", but due to her not wanting the Heavenly Emperor to control her fate, she changed her fate. Also, if you have to asked me who fell for who first, I think the main guy did first. But he was too stubborn to admit his feelings first and so she had to be the one to give in and make him admit it too. The scene where he finally admits his feelings is very adorable and spicy. XD He sure is tsundere and he's definitely not romantic, but his face can't hide his emotions when he's in love. The ending was adorable and I enjoyed the story better than I expected. I was expecting a lot of heart ache due to the "seven unfortunate lifetimes", so I knew what I was getting into.
I liked that the author put more dept into the characters emotions which brought out lots of emotions for the readers to sympathized for both main leads each lifetimes they had died or lived. Also for those that said the female lead is like a monkey, she's really not. I find her character to be interesting because she actually isn't a "docile" female lead that will follow the whims fate has laid on her. I didn't like the 2nd life story as much as the first because of how her brained worked that life time, but that wasn't her fault. The main guy fed her too much forgetfulness soup, so it resulted her to be a bit dumb that life time. Can't blame her for hating her "stupid" version of herself that life time. The main girl does have a brain and knows how to use it, she also admits she's not smart in the love department but that doesn't make her dumb. She realizes her emotions and accepts them too later on in the story.
Although she uses her fist on the male lead, she does it for a reason. The main guy says some really hateful sh*t which makes me want to punch him sometimes too, but he learns and changes in a better way after meeting and spending time with her. His heart also softens and he learns to love because of her. Although he doesn't like admitting that he gets jealous when other men touch or talk to her, he accepts that he does love her eventually causing him to not want to part with her every time she dies. I also like that she's pretty straight forward and doesn't hide behind a bush about herself. She's not a fox in sheep clothing and will tell the main guy straight in his face what she really thinks. Also her questioning the guy right in front of his face asking him if he really likes her makes it even more amusing because she knows she's "thick-skinned" trying to get the main lead to admit he likes her. Although he doesn't sugarcoat it, he does eventually tells her in a funny way that makes me even flabbergasted the way he said it (which happens in a scene where it's done in a special way - the scene I said above about the "spicy" scene). Their relationship is a typical bickering couple, but with these trials you see that there's more too just a bickering couple. She's a sly cunning lady (also stubborn) and he's a stubborn man with a bad tongue, but together they make each other. They learn to love through these trials and with time they have bloomed into a cute couple that can't live without each other that was first formed by their hate for each other. I'm glad they got married in the end. Only sad thing I can say after this story ended was that I wanted to read more sweet moments between the two, but because the ending was satisfying I'm okay with it.

If you haven't read this story yet, go on ahead and dwell into a roller coaster of emotions! It's a story you won't regret reading and will love just as much as I did. <<less

Accompanying the Phoenix

So far the story is still interesting. For the first couple of chapters early on you get confused if the man she met was the male lead or not, but later on there are hints that he is (and possibly hints that he has a big secret that you'll find out later when you read - then again I'm also not sure if it was really a secret to begin with in the first place) 馃槀 Anyways, I love the female lead! She's so bad-ass and I love how she... more>> shows her love for her soldiers! MUCH RESPECT! \o/ She's also a bit tom-boyish, but that's because she's the "God of War" in the demon realm and that her looks were described as "manly" or "masculine". She may come off as that to the characters in the story, but I think she's still feminine in her own way.
Spoiler

I remember she was talking about her wearing a feminine skirt for the first time and all of the men that went passed her got scared or laughed at her which caused her to never put on a feminine dress on again. 馃槶 Which was rather sad because I thought she would have looked awesome if given the right dress!

[collapse]

She's also funny and a bit clumsy (like @Simple described her) when it comes to housework. Main male lead also got an interesting personality. He's funny, calm most of the time, and mysterious. He holds too many secrets!
Spoiler

I remember when she was thrown into the water in her "chicken" form by the main male lead because apparently "she needed a bath" and she was like "I can't swim!" in bird language. 馃槀 And when he kept clucking at her like she was only a chicken pet! HAHAHAHA! 馃槀 Ahh... the memories. 馃槂

[collapse]

Another thing, I love how the author portrays the demon realm in a good and different light from the usual.
Spoiler

And that the demons were also a god race that helped sealed the "evil demons" from escaping. Basically they were the guards to watch over the time rip that an ancient god helped sealed those evil demons in for heaven and nether/hell realms.

[collapse]

There are translation mistakes in some chapters that may still need editing/fixing, but it's not too noticeable where you can't enjoy the story. Now, about the main couple -
OMG they are such a cute, interesting, funny, and easy-going (?) couple. Main male lead, sometimes I don't know what goes on in his head, but I do know that he holds interest in Shen Li. I'm always laughing my ass off when he tries to get a chance to be with her using his sly means to fool her just for some alone time! 馃槅

I'm also sooo glad that Fu Rong is not her paired male lead. Author has introduced us to him in one of the chapters and dude's got no backbone and is rude as f***! He's a total playboy and a jerk that doesn't know how to treasure any womyn. He see's "beautiful womyn" (because apparently that's his type) as objects to play with at his own free will. 馃槧 I don't like playboy's so I may seem to have put him in a bad light that may seem off putting, but don't let that ruin your fun in enjoying this story because he's only there "temporary" and isn't talked about much through out the story. So you won't even notice he's there because he's forgettable most of the time. 馃槀

I love the way the author's writes her characters and story depth. The wording and descriptions of everything makes the story flow very well where you don't get confused as to what just happened and that's what I like about it. 馃榿 The way she/he wrote how Shen Li thinks when it comes to love is realistic for most people.

Spoiler

She was confessed to by one of her admirer's, Mo Fang (I love this guy 馃槏), but she turned down his love confession because she still had feelings for the main male lead after his "death". (spoiler - I won't go into detail if he really died or not, but you'll find out more secrets after reading the story). Even after the male lead "died" she said she wouldn't look for his reincarnation because the man she loved was only that man in that life time and that it would be pretty pointless to find the reincarnation because he wouldn't be the same person she loved and knew. Which was pretty realistic thinking if you asked me.

[collapse]

Sorry Kiki (TL), for the long review~ I just wanted to express my love for this wonderful story. It's soo chill and straight to the point when needed, but gives you the mysteriousness to keep you on your toes wanting more! 馃槏 If anyone is putting this story on hold to read, READ IT because you're missing out on such wonderful main leads and plot wise!
Note: Everyone has different preferences in books/novels, so try out the story first without expecting much to see if you like it before you decide to judge (as the saying goes "don't judge a book by it's cover") it. It's best to read more than 5 chapters before giving up if you think the story isn't right for you. 馃槈 <<less

Descent of the Phoenix – 13 Years Old Princess Consort

I feel like I need to come out and say this. This isn't the best story, but for crying out loud! Why are people upset that the female lead is OP? I've seen other novels with the same setting, but with a male lead and you don't see people shaming the male lead because he's strong. And the story does have it's mysteries as to why she's that strong.

... more>>
Spoiler

It's her mother side of the family. They're supposedly a really strong clan - probably descendant of the gods/goddess race. But we don't really know as of yet. The translations are getting into that part though. I have many theories regarding her birth and why the body she's taken is able to adapt to things she wasn't able to do so before, but I'll leave that out for another time.

[collapse]

Anyways, rant out. The romance is there, though I wished the author didn't rush into it so early on. I would have liked to see the development of their relationship more before she
Spoiler

revealed her true face to him. Because now it' just feels like their relationship is superficial and that he only likes her for her looks

[collapse]
. It shows a new side to her and that she doesn't need a man to depend on. She's definitely not a damsel in distress and I LOVE IT! 馃槏 She does has flaws! Her insecurities are her flaws. To say she doesn't, then you were clearly not reading the same story I was reading. Now, about the story. The plot is starting to move somewhere interesting. The dots are starting to connect and we're learning a of lot of new things about the female lead's mother and her clan. We also are starting to see a new side to the male lead! His character development took a turn down towards the path of yandere after
Spoiler

seeing her fall off the cliff and learning that his father and that other countries had a part in her kidnapping.

[collapse]

Just wow. Gosh, this is a rare gem in many. Even though it has no originality in the time traveling concept, the plot is interesting the more I read into it. I just hope someone continues to pick the story up where the last translator left it off at. It's a long journey, but worth it. Even if the plot does drags in some area's, this isn't a bad story. I've seen worst stories than this and this is not one of them. 馃榿 Also, some have stated that the story isn't realistic, but how can it be realistic if it's in a fantasy world where almost everyone has this special skill/power where they can fly in the sky and the female lead time travels to the past or another world (whatever you want to call it) ?! If you wanted realistic, you should have looked at the tags before jumping in. This story isn't meant to be realistic, it's FICTION for crying out loud! Nothing is suppose to be realistic in fiction! If you're looking for realistic, you're in the wrong section. <<less

Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home
April 10, 2018
Status: c108
*sighs* I don't know what to say about this after reading it. Their relationship is a very dysfunctional relationship. The male lead is abusive and doesn't communicate his thoughts to the female lead at all. He has anger issues and needs to go to a mental hospital or see a therapist about it. How did this get so many good reviews on QQ? This story is sh*t. Female lead let's the male lead walk all over her and her reason for joining the show-biz is really stupid. She joined it... more>> because
Spoiler

of the male lead (apparently she was in-love with him)

[collapse]
.

A toxic melo-drama of stupid misunderstandings. Five or Ten chapters would have been okay to end this story at, but the author likes money more than strong plot and character development. Which I don't see these qualities in this story, so I'm dropping this novel. Not worth my time and the author seriously dragged this novel out.

Edit: I feel like the people rating this novel with high ratings and dismissing why people are rating it a 2 or 1 star are hugely misunderstanding why we rated it so low. The clear reason is: ABUSIVE and TOXIC male lead. He RAPES, emotional abuses, and physical abuses (how he treats her even when he rapes her) the female lead. I don't get how some ladies can praise this story dismissing that he mistreated and RAPED her. I'm okay with misunderstandings in romance stories, but when it becomes toxic like in this novel - IT'S NOT OKAY. <<less

The Empress’ Poor Quality Special Effects
April 23, 2019
Status: c12
I think after reading the official translations for the webtoon, I rather stick with the novel translations. It looks better and I don't get frustrated with the Chinese names being changed into Western names. I would like to thank the translator of the this novel, even though you aren't paid for this. Thank you!

Anyways back to an actual review for this novel:

It's like any assassin rebirth novel, except the FL knows how to do make-up art (ex: changing a skinny man into a chubby man just from a photo). I... more>> like that the FL is pretty chill and not annoying. She does things with in reason. Like if someone does bad things to her and her people, she'll do it right back someway or another. I'm still reading the novel, but I've read a bit further in the webtoon. I don't have much to say about this novel yet either, but I like the direction of the story so far. At least FL is better than the FL in "Prince, You Are So Cheap". When she picks up a fight, she knows how to save herself instead of letting others bully her or walk all over her. I love it! <<less

Finished the story and thought it was okay. Was gonna give a 3, but decided not too (check reasons in spoilers). The main girl's personalty appeared scary at first, but as the story progressed her character grew on me.

Spoiler

While reading the story I thought the main guy loved her less than she did towards him because he always appeared cold during the time they met each time after reincarnation, but when the Bonus stories came out we got to know Moxi's point of view. That's when we got to really know about him and that his feelings were actually real and not just out of no where. Through time, as a mortal and immortal he started to love her more and more. I liked that she stayed true to her personality, but it was sometimes scary when she had such weird thoughts towards the Moxi child version. I was like, "Uhh, you know he's still a child right?!" But then, you can't really blame her since she only saw the "Adult" Moxi always in the child Moxi. I also wished the author explained Moxi's point of view for the 2nd life time. That life time was the most confusing one out the rest. It appeared that he loved her, but it also didn't appear like he didn't. So I was always confused and wanted to know about his emotions and thoughts during that life time. Anyways, the ending (last bonus story) was satisfying but also confusing. It was confusing because I read this part 鈥淢oxi, I鈥檓 trying to wheedle you!鈥 then 鈥淐鈥檓on! Let鈥檚 go see Siming.鈥 and was like, "what?!" Then a thought came to my mind and thought "Oh, I guess she still doesn't know how to use the correct words to praise people". XD

[collapse]

All in all, fun short read. I wouldn't really put too much hope on the romance (from chapter 1 to 15) because it felt a bit lacking due to the story only being 15 chapters, but the bonus chapters make up for the missing emotions that couldn't be told told from the Male lead's point of view from the main story. On a sidenote, I really like Chang'An even though he was just a little side character. Wished the author gave a little side story about him and his trials as well. He was such a cutie. :'D

Also, if you read "Seven Unfortunate Lifetimes, All Thanks to a Single Moment of Impulse" you'll want to read this story too. Different personalities in female leads and different circumstances that caused them both to go reincarnate, but the romance is cute in both stories. 鈾 <<less
