A Love So Beautiful


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Television and novels label us boys and girls who are friends, and live awfully close together since young as “childhood sweethearts”, moreover, they generally divide it into two categories:

One, the “in love with each other” type. Two people who are close together like siblings, poking honeycombs and getting stung by bees together, stealing sweet potatoes and getting beaten together. By the time the two would look back, only then would they realize that the friendship from long ago has slowly blossomed into love.

The other one is the “sees and hates each other” type. Two people who opposes the other with equal intensity, already itching to rush ahead to bite the other when spotted from a distance. When they get the chance, they’d pull the tire valve of each other’s bikes. But later on, when the two would grow up, they would suddenly realize — ah! this is true love.

Unfortunately, Jiang Chen and I are neither of the above mentioned. In a very long time, me and him were simply just neighbors who live across each other. Him playing his piano daily, me watching Chibi Maruko-chan with gusto. Occasionally, when I forget the content in our homework, I would press the doorbell of their house. He would always mock me, and impatiently ask why I didn’t remember.

Probably, because I’m seeking out a favor, so I never bickered with him. Of course, it might also be because I don’t like to argue with people since young. I’m someone calm and collected, a little bit extraordinarily.

  • So in love with the drama. It's light, fluffy and just everything pure. ?
  • The novel is hilarious, JC and XX are the cutest couple. If you want "something easy and doesn't hurt the brain" (according to Dolly) then this is a must-read!
  • Can't wait for more chapters to be uploaded. Thank you for translating this! I love how approachable Dolly, Amy and Zzzzzzri are. ?? (English translators) Kudos!

I can't believe this story doesn't have any reviews yet. It's so cute! Right now it looks like an angsty, hilarious set up where two exes fall back in love together again (though it never seemed like they were ever out of love.) Both were just too prideful and stubborn to make it work when young.

Now, due to circumstances, they are brought together again. But the MC's train of thoughts and actions are so funny! She is really the girl next door, harmful level zero. In one example, lots of... more>> high class ladies were discussing gourmet meals and one asked her what she likes to eat. She quipped that she likes Master Kong and Ninshin (both cup noodles brands) and it just cracked me up.

She's self-deprecating and somewhat shameless so I adore her a ton. Can't wait to read the rest. <<less

As of now, I think that the story is okay but I don't like how there are pictures from its drama attached to the chapters. It just ruins my imagination, I don't like how the actors look too so... The pictures just annoys me, after all this novel and the adapted drama are still different from each other. I can't believe very that the first time I wrote a review is because I got annoyed by pictures.

Oh, I know that it's part of the plot but I hate it... more>> when people are keep on reminiscing. The memory is good, the memory is bad, I don't f*cking care. If you keep on dwelling on a past relationship, why even separate. So annoying, this story is definitely not the kind of story that I'll like but still read because I'm out of stories to read. <<less

I couldn't keep reading because I really didn't like the ML. From what I saw, he seemed to share a lot of similarities with a manipulative, abusive boyfriend. I don't know if he was going to be whitewashed later, but I couldn't stand it. The FL on the other hand seemed like the perfect target for a manipulative, abusive boyfriend. She loved him and was devoted to him for years. Then there was the fact that there were like three possible love interests for her, and the only one I... more>> liked was a minor so he was out because I don't support those kinds of relationships. <<less

I love Chen Xiaoxi very much. I never mind a girl chasing after love, after all, what’s wrong with it?

However, I sometimes doubt Jiang Chen’s love for her. Translators told us to wait and we’ll see something very fluffy coming from here. This note was about the chapter 23 mark. But I don’t recalled much besides being clear cut with his parents and Li Wei on where he stands with Xiaoxi.

I can’t help but wonder if he’s just content with Xiaoxi and knows she’ll do anything for him hence he... more>> sticks by her because he’s just too lazy to pursue someone else. A devoted girl practically deliver herself to him so why not? That’s my take on him. Also, how he treat her after they ‘reconcile’ and such, expecting her to do laundry and such. Some would argue that he’s viewing her as a housewife. I don’t wanna complain since Xiaoxi didn’t mind but I feel like it was rather servant-like instead of housewife-like. And the papers he gave her of what he expects out of her. The guidelines or such things, ack.

Yah but overall, I like this book very much. I like both characters too. I love Xiaoxi’s rambling and crazy thoughts and Jiang Chen’s savageness. <<less

I read the raws of this novel with the help of Google translate - which gave me a headache. But, I was very impatient after finishing the drama and couldn't wait for the official translations, which are awesome by the way.

This is a very fluffy novel, not many conflicts, only misunderstandings and the cliche mother-in-law who looks down on the MC. The way CXX thinks is hilarious at times.

If I have to pick a favorite part, it would be the side stories which chronicles their youth and was mainly based... more>> on the ML's point of view. <<less

Romance was meh.

I never felt the chemistry or love between MC and ML. Their previous misunderstanding that caused them to break up was s*upid af. The way they got back together eventually was also very confusion. ML wanted an apology, so MC apologies and then he accepts her as a girlfriend again?? Wtf? I really like MCs personality but sometimes I wanted to smack her. Soon after they get back together he makes her cook and clean for him. Am I supposed to believe that is romantic? No way.

The story had a great start. I liked the FL with her rambling side in her mind.

... more>>

But they just had to cliche the whole thing, they will resolve some misunderstanding then reconcile. I don't like this kind of thing where the FL thinks (*edit) too much really thinking that the action will come by itself by her waiting for that JIANCG CHENG xd


Though this is my own opinion, I do recommend to read other reviews by others, I didn't like it.

P.S.: It is said there are bed scenes in the story, found out from a commenter, well most of the times there are bed scenes with Josei tag :c... <<less

This is subjective and a personal preference. I was at chapter 25 and I get bored by the story... I don't manage to read until the end of the novel.

The translation quality is great though.

I made it to chapter 30, and then I couldn't handle the dominating ML and subservient MC. It was like MC has no self-respect.

The humour sounded witty in the beginning but then it became something hard to digest.

There are very few stories that I can not finish once started, as I put some searching time into selecting what to read next. This story sounded good but wasn't able to hold it's attraction till the middle. It might become good in the later chapters, but for now I am putting it... more>> in dropped list and might cone back at the later time to give it another try. <<less

I love reading how the relationship between Jiang Chen and Chen Xiao Xi grows and gets stronger throughout the novel. 💖💖 They're really a cute and loving couple.

The Bonus Point for me is how Jiang Chen stands up to his mother (& father) about his relationship with Chen Xiao Xi, though he acts like he doesn't care about their relationship and is not romantic.

🌹 I truly enjoy reading this heart warming novel. I have read it twice.

Firstly, those who came here after watching the drama, please keep in mind that the novel and drama albeit similar, it actually is very different from one another. So read this without trying to constantly correlate the two.

Secondly, it's a light read, Chen Xiaoxi is absolutely hilarious, her monologues are just absolute gems, I don't know how many times I almost teared up from laughing so much. I love their relationship!

And tbh think that these two really needed a break from one another to find each other again and realize how much the other person means to them.

Jiang Chen is an absolute sweetheart although he really needed to work on his communication and be a tad bit more proactive. But ig that's just our introverted ML who's not very good at expressing himself.

There's no giant misunderstanding or roadblocks in their relationship, not too much drama.

Lastly, I'd like to thank the translator for bringing us this beautiful story :)

Read this! Words can't even describe my feelings on this!

If you're tired of misunderstandings, revenge, or an MC's amazing denseness, then give thus a try!

There's nothing really complicated in this, the bit of drama comes and goes enough to keep things spiced up

... more>> The MC is also quite relatable! Though sometimes I'm quite frustrated with not just her, but the ML too. What a match made in heaven!

The character growth is notable and this novel will send you straight back to that first love of yours (even if you don't have one like me)

The MC isn't the type to be jealous so there's no third party related drama! Seriously, I'm quite bad at giving reviews so just give it a try and see for yourself!

On a side note, the translator is quite meticulous and patiently explained some Chinese saying! Thank you! <<less

This is the first Chinese novel that I read back then and I just want to leave a review.

Giving 4 and a half stars. This is a worth story to read.

Recommended if you watch the drama first than reading. If the person read this and watch the drama they will ask a lot of question. So recommended to watch this first.

... more>> Chen Xiaoxi and Jiang Chen are ex-lovers that broke up, because both of them are having no time for each other.

And unintentionally they broke up because of busy schedules even though they still love each other.

It's different than drama but still I fell in the novel than the drama.
I really love to list down the negative first.

Jiang Chen is a handsome doctor. Another typical interpretation for a character. You will think of 'It started with a kiss' when you saw his character.

Smart, prideful, cold, confident. So typical as a character for a perfectly cold prince.

Chen Xiaoxi... I always think of 'It started with a kiss' because of the personalities of the character.

A dumb but an artistic person, you can say this about her. Another typical personality.

Let's go to the good side of the story.

Even though the plot is so typical. It's a well written story because it's go to the realistic side and that's what I like.

The novel focus in the broken relationship of them and fixing it.
The ML is really confident that the MC is still in love with her. And that's good, it doesn't contradict his original personality. The same with the MC.

The story has a mix of comedy and romance. The genre that I really love the most.

I think the writer of the story is really a fan of 'It started with a kiss'. And I really love that she just used it an inspiration and she didn't destroy her own story.
Even though it's a quite replica of 'It started with a kiss'. It has a different story inside.

It's a worth read for me. :) <<less

Soooo good!!

It's adorable. It tends to go back to flashbacks, but even then, I can help but fawn over the main couple. The female lead is sooo funny. I swear her stunt in ch 16 will get her killed.

At first, I really dislike ML because he reminded me of He Yichen from "You are My Sunshine" but after reading this for a while, I think ML was slightly better than He Yichen although sometimes he treated MC like a servant. Moreover, after reading ML's POV, I concluded that ML was simply an awkward man who couldn't express himself clearly. He often omitted harsh words to cover his awkwardness but he really loved MC and cared about her.

Meanwhile, MC's ramblings throughout the story was really amusing. I never get... more>> bored of it although her ramblings covered almost 70% of this story. But sometimes, I still didn't like how submissive and meek she was in front of ML.


As for the break up, I'm on ML's side. I mean, I get it why ML was angry and hurted by MC's declaration of breaking up since MC was the one who relentlessly chased after ML back then but she was also the one who gave up first.


Thankfully, the story wasn't angsty and the misunderstanding wasn't dragged on for long since those two things were what I couldn't stand the most. <<less
