Back To My Youth


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

In the humid heat of July, students within the crowded classroom couldn’t breathe properly under the tremendous pressure of the intensive exams.

Guo Jingyu’s forehead was damp with sweat.

He saw the figure seated in front of him as soon as he glanced up. His back was as straight as it had always been, his white shirt school uniform had a mild soap scent, and his hair was neatly parted. He was accompanied by the steady rustle of a pen.

Guo Jingyu laughed, as if he’d been freed of a huge burden, and gently nudged the person in front of him twice with a pen, saying in a hushed whisper, “Li Tongzhou?” The teen in front of him halted and didn’t say anything, but he extended his hand behind him and handed him something.

Guo Jingyu was lying motionless on his desk. With his fingers, he poked Li Tongzhou’s palm, which the other gently gripped.

In our youth’s fiery love, you’ve always been the only one.

I usually don't comment on other reviews. However. Please don't listen to the reviewer that only read one chapter. Not everyone can notice the difference between MC thinking "wow, it's like I'm back in the past... it must be a very vivid dream" and it actually being a dream.

I won't spoil anything, just remember that it's a HE.

This was very good, but I found myself feeling quite sad while reading it, after a certain point in the story.

It's very sweet, and very nice, but there is an undercurrent of melancholy that I can't shake after reading. I feel bad for people who experience such things.

MC and ML are a beautiful couple. They do everything for each other, they protect each other, they want the best for the other. The MC is smart, funny and doting. ML is super smart, taciturn but gentle with MC.

Small spoiler for everyone that read Suyo's review:

More small spoilers but might affect your reading:


MC first thought it was a dream, but then he began to realize he was reborn (this is only implied, when he realizes). He also has trouble sleeping because he is afraid of everything being a dream, eventually he accepts that everything is real (it does not take too much time).

I only read the beginning of it. I want to say something that isn't a spoiler because it was mentioned in the first chapter. THIS IS NOT A REBORN STORY. It's a dream about the MC going back to the past. This story is so good. I cried my eyes out every time I remember he doesn't really go back. This story makes you feel "yes this is life". No matter how much you regret missing something you can't go back and change anything. In life when something happens you... more>> can do nothing to change it. We can't expect anything. Everything in life comes to us as a surprise. Years just go by at a speed that makes you astonished. This novel is bittersweet. I will finish it another day. I'm really tired of crying. <<less

.... this is such a cute book, you're really being robbed by it not having a translator. Seriously. My favorite combination is romance with mystery because it just gives you more reason to care and read (w/o using drama). It gives you plot, momentum, motivation, and intrigue. It's a subtle and simple but highly effective mystery that makes this rebirth novel just better.

The novel has such a list of cute characters like the MC's family and friends and not to mention the soft cuties who are our leads.... That the... more>> answer to the mystery will literally sucker punch you. Such a good use of tension. Wow. I had a feeling, but because society has moved so far in the western world that I didn't exactly expect it honestly. But then I realize this was 2005 and.... there could be something similar even in America Maybe? There is a trigger warning..

.. if you're gay in a religious family probably? Not sure. I don't even want to spoil it. Bc it's shocking... And it's better for the effect if u don't know


Overall Op/low-key ruthless MC (it's ok w me), cutie ml, and great romance and plot. Someone should pick this up. Honestly it's a crime that you're not reading this. It is fluffiness you earned. <<less

It wasn't my intention to make a review, I just click accidentally on a star... And post it (-_-;)

[I's hard to me explain, but I swear that It was something like this]

Anyway, now that it can't be deleted, I'll just write my opinion. The story is pretty cute, at least as far as I've read. The plot seems to be good, there is a soft mystery that intrigues me and makes me want to keep reading, of course the characters are also equally interesting.

The MC seems to be the... more>> cute, but ruthless type and the ML is just a angel, unfortunately, I haven't read much yet and I don't have so many things to say about the secondary characters, although I have some expectations.

Well, the only thing I recommend is that you decide whether or not to read it based on the other reviews. I am not really reliable (╥﹏╥) <<less

This was the sweetest love I've read in awhile. The ML is so damn precious and MC is straightforward with his affection for him.

The reason for ML's death was surprising for me and it hurt my heart. I feel unresolved from it but like this story showed it's best to move on and look forward of their future together.

This was a beautiful love story and I'm so glad that MC got a second chance in life ❤️

This is an amazing story that captivates the essence of what being different means, especially regarding sexuality.
I found myself smiling at the beginning and then I caught myself reading so seriously (besides crying).

It is a reborn story and its an amazing one and beautiful.

I dont know why the translators gave up, but its worth it.
