Translator here! Creatures of Habit was one of my first projects, so inevitably, my translation of it had many errors in accuracy, grammar, and flow. I'm currently going through every chapter to edit them, so I really recommend reading it only once I'm done with everything. To those who have read this novel, although none of the edits would change what you know of the plot, it would definitely feel different once you reread it.

Anyways, this is a novel that focuses extremely on the main character's growth--from a selfish, vain,... more>> and impetuous man to a more mature and stable person who knows to admit when he's wrong. And unlike most character development in novels, MC's growth doesn't exactly erases his personality, and I really appreciate that.

And about the ML, I'm putting it in spoiler tags. It's not really much of a spoiler though, but if you wanna be surprised and just see what ML is for yourself, then skip it:


The male lead, on the other hand, is also not like those overbearing president types who pamper their lover and let them do whatever they want. He really loves MC, and so he wants to see MC become a better person. He dotes on MC, but also calls him out and make him change his ways when he does something wrong.


I won't say anymore coz I don't want to spoil the story, but do check out this novel! (once I'm done editing haha)

And oh, about that broken links problem... Yeaaaah, I'm aware of that. Just keep in mind that edited chapters are on lizonkanovels dot com, while non-edited chapters are on Google Drive. You can find my directory of updated reading links on my backup site at lizonkanovels (.) carrd (.) co/#coh <<less

Whole dog blood but happy ending. Sending blades to author for abusing reader QAQ

Have you ever thought about the life of a cannon fodder that offended the protagonist? This is the cannon fodder redemption story.

Since the story is short I just say read it. The character growth is marvelous. Recommended for someone looking for dog blood novel with happy ending.

IDK why the rating is so low.

It's probably a 4.3-4.4 star novel.

I recommend. In this case, we got a scum shou redeeming himself. I think he does a pretty good job of it. Unlike the synopsis, the gong stays pretty cold (hot on the inside) the majority of the time. Shou still tries his hardest though.

'Tis a pretty decent novel.

Also synopsis is incorrect.

The "training his body" is just them having a bunch of angry s*x (on Qin Shao's part). Then car accident. Then Qin Shao 'disciplines' Jiang Yishan to be less spoiled. That's 'bout it.

I really really really really love it??!!!! but I feel that the main story ended kinda abrupt I was shookt when it already ended. I wish it had a bit more.

Like the MC is the typical scum shou but at the same time, was not so scummy. My heart hurts from pity seeing him being self-depreciative when he knew he was wrong... And he tried to prove he changed by ... more>>

accidentally getting into an accident lmao


I like how he tries to change for the better now he knows ML is the most precious to him.

I like how the ML is a man kinky good morals though... like he dont spoil MC into unnecessary bs anymore so he just spoil him in bed beating him. <<less

I liked this story. Great translation.

I loved the fact that we have a redemption story for a shou MC. I did not hate MC because he's not a slag. The reasons for his behavior are completely understandable given his age and profession. However, he redeems himself quite well. ML is an utterly loyal gong. ML loved the MC knowing his shortcomings. Isn't that true love is about? MC does not change his personality nor does the ML expect him to. Kudos author-sama for keeping the MC human and not making... more>> him a "good but door-mat" type.

This is a great read. <<less

I really liked this

This is a story about a scum shou who gets tured to the better with force by the gong.

It really shows that people have flaws and how to overcome them and I really really liked that.

bruh this deserves at least a 4.6. There is visible, obvious change--none of that, "but you can interpret this sentence as mental change!!1!!". The change is obvious and welcomed. Also like all of it makes more sense than i've seen in previous novels.

the links on this page are kind of wonky, so press on the translator's name > go to their website > select the series 'creatures of habit'' > open the google folder with all the unedited chapters > read in order! Chapter 7-9 are all chapter 7, so... more>> it's better that you start reading from the folder itself. <<less

This is a short but a really good redemption read. I loved the realistic part of this story. All characters were just flawed human beings, especially the MC. The author didn't change the MC's character and personality just because he realized his mistakes. He was who is always was. The whole reason why I gave a high rating for the story :)

... more>>

It is a very difficult to change one's way even when we really want it for ourselves. We still would make mistakes and continue to be trapped in our old ways. MC was the same. His shameless, selfish, and manipulative ways didn't really change even when he was trying to get the ML back. He didn't turn into a white lotus. He still had to be manipulative and use the ML's soft heart to get him back. All in all, the shou was pretty scummy. BUT one thing always stayed true for him, his love for ML. No matter his ways and personality his love for ML was very moving. The only reason I could like him. Lol

In the beginning I couldn't see a reason why the ML loved the MC so much. But when I realized he loved MC even with all the flaws in his personality, I knew I wouldn't find a reason that would satisfy me. After all, it's not me who fell in love with the MC. However, one thing is for sure, ML always loved MC for who he was. And that's all that matters anyways.

This novel is quite unique the MC is shameless and quite dependent on the ML has many bad habits his character isnt that good, but what makes it enjoyable is the interaction between the ML and MC so cute, as he accepts him wholly even he can be sometimes so hateful. The smutty scenes is very nicely translated. You should definitely try this novel.

Translation quality: Great!

This novel is an emotional drama. It is about betrayal, a shameless shou and a gong that just can't completely refuse him.

He (gong) feels disgusted for he (gong) still craves him (shou).

... more>> Story:

Gong let shou fly high, shou got more and more vain, burning himself in the process of spreading his wings. When shou suddenly returned, he shamelessly begged for forgiveness, played pitifull and tried to tempt him (gong) with his body. He completely presumptuously thought he could just get the gong to forgive him and take him back.... and he wasn't completely wrong... but he didn't consider the consequences his past actions would cause him.

Gong vents his anger during sex. You could call him cruel. I even think shou is a little pitiful, but considering shou's character and actions, that little pity turns into contempt.

A little into the story shou is trying to redeem himself. But only changes after shamelessly throwing himself at the gong and being shown the cold shoulder or being disciplined. <<less

This book is unlike other books I have read. I don't know other but I found it pretty good. The MC cunning and slutty at the same time. I really like their pair. Because they complement each other (I don't know if it should be used here in this sense, but I think in this way.) ML is like perfect, to me I felt that he is very tolerant of his lover.

The plot is not too deep and characters are not too detailed except the main MC & ML.... more>> Well all in all thank you author for your hard work. 😇 <<less
