This was a really good novel. Probably my favorite from this author now. If you're worried about this being too similar to her other works (which unfortunately this author has a habit of) then dont worry the author changed it up on this one. The characters who you love, hate or pity, the gradual romance, and the simple yet interesting plot were all fun to read and this is a very enjoyable ride. I'll explain it in detail now.

Lemme start with the characters. The Ban family is frankly the highlight... more>> of this book. I absolutely loved them, each and every one. I loved seeing them and I'm happy they got alot of time to shine in this book. Ban Huai, the dad, is fairly useless except he loves his family a whole lot and would never let them be wronged. Ban Heng, who is kind of slow, is pure at heart and follows his sister in everything. He also surrounds himself with nice people, I loved his friends. Yi Shu, the mom, is like a tigress protecting her family with an iron fist. At times I suspected she knew way more about everything than she let on. But kept quiet and played dumb alongside her family to protect them. The Bans Grandma, who did all she could for them. And then there is Ban Hua, our MC.

Gotta admit, I loved Ban Hua alot. I found her charming, steadfast, and adaptable in bad situations. Even when shes making trouble, I never found her annoying or felt she was doing s*upid things. Because she always had a back up plan and she was smart. She wasn't some scheming person either, just bold and blunt and knew how to use her family name and people favor toward her to the full advantage. She was also carefree, confident as a peacock, and simple in that she likes taking revenge on the spot. She never really holds grudges and she has a soft spot for women, even her "enemies". I really liked the fact that she never did the women wrong, because she understood their worries and struggles that are different from men of that time. For instance
Spoiler

She gave money to the prostitute her fiancee ran away with and never bothered her, despite it smearing her name. When one of the girls that were jealous of her got exiled or whatever, she sent her luggage with durable and practical items for her to use.

[collapse]
In general, Ban Hua was a really great girl and I totally got why people kept falling for her, though in alot of cases it was for her beauty (which she boldly admits to). But the ones that loved her sincerely loved her for her personality. I also appreciated the fact that in this case, you can see how Ban Huas upbringing and parents created such a personality. Alot of time I cant see the cause and effect with these extraordinary MCs who act completely different then one who was raised in those types of environments. But because of Ban Hua family and the way she was treated, it wouldve been weirder if she didnt come out like she did. Her personality is definitely a standout, but so is her family. It doesn't create dissonance, for once.

Next is Rong Xia, our ML. Spoiler, but not really since it's obvious. ML is different from others. Hes not domineering, overly possessive, or cold faced. Hes actually known to be a polite gentlemen and a "beauty". He has his own dreams and ambitions, has alot of plans. But he never planned for Ban Hua. I actually felt bad for this ML a bit, because he was really a lonely kid, basically had no childhood, and saw in the Ban family that lost childhood. His plans were meticulous, but there were also events he couldn't plan for that he only dodged by luck. I also could envision him as
Spoiler

emperor

[collapse]
, a scholar that was both reasonable and decisive. That could use force and persuasion. ML was the perfect mix of hard and soft. Which as the story goes on, we realize alot of characters lack that ability, that type of flexible personality. I'll explain later.

Since we've reached here let me talk about the romance. Ban Hua and Rong Xia are such a suitable couple. Ban Hua in her boldness and simplicity and Rong Xia who indulged her and loved making her happy. He wanted her to forever be that bold and confident. I liked the fact that they could joke together and spend alot of down time telling stories and having fun. But they also trusted each other a lot. Rong Xia would often just sit back and let Ban Hua handle things, eat the things she sent without testing them, and helping her out even in the initial beginning. Contrary to what others thought, he never wanted to use her name or family. He just wanted her. Simply her.

On Ban Huas end, she took a bit longer. Some might think her love for him superficial, but I disagree completely. She loved him and once they got married, she saw him as one of her own to defend and protect, just like her own family. She stood by him even when no one else would, tried her best to make up for his lost childhood, and prioritized his feelings. There were things holding her back from showing her love though, completely reasonable concerns for the time. But unlike this author's other MCs, I never felt like the MC here was just along for the ride in their romance. She felt like a participant and she showed through her actions and words that she loved him just as much. She just put on a carefree front. For instance, anytime someone was worried over whether Rong Xia would wrong her she'd say
Spoiler

she could just leave him and return to her maternal family. But those words were not out of lack of trust in ML, but a trust in her self. She loved him, but he wasnt her entire world. She had herself and her family too. So she was secure, and also believed that her trust in him was not wrong. She did doubt him at one point, when he was almost assassinated and the assassin blamed her, but was quickly knocked in the face by his own trust in her.

[collapse]

I also liked the fact that aside from her Ban family, she put ML first. What I mean by that is there are too many times where people on FL side would hurt ML, or even just random strangers would hurt ML, and the FL would plead for them or say something in their favor so ML would spare them. This FL does none of those things.
Spoiler

She frequently says that the ML is her man, her person, and no one can wrong him. That includes the long term friend Princess Anle (who went as far as to say Ban Hua was picking men over their friendship btch stfu), the Queen Dowager who pleaded for her son etc. She didnt want to keep hidden dangers around ML and if they made her cruel, she was cruel then

[collapse]
One of my favorite things she said was that if someone wronged her, she had the Ban family and ML who would always side with her and defend her, but Rong Xia had no one, just her, so she would prioritize him and side with him always. And alot of MCs dont do that. Theyd rather side with unknown strangers than ML. MC here admits her double standard and doesnt give a sht who calls her out on her defense of ML.

Anyway they were a lovely couple and I loved them so much. On to the plot.

The plot was pretty slow I would say? But it wasnt boring at all. For the majority of the book, it's not set in the palace, so theres little court intrigue as much as just drama between the powerful families. Like you won't catch MC scheming against concubines ok. And ML himself is just an official, hes not involved in the fights between the princes (much). So its basically the Ban Family and ML watching a good show while ML waits out making his moves. Kind of slice of life, not really though. One thing I was very glad about is that the author did what few authors do in terms of ancient china and wrote about
Spoiler

ML taking over and starting a new dynasty. ML was not the illegitimate child of the emperor nor a prince. Just an official's son with ambition and plans. In the end he took the throne and started a whole new dynasty, which we rarely see done. Too many illegitimate sons and unfavored princes rising up so it was fun to see this new version of this unrelated person being pushed to the throne by the power of the people.

[collapse]

That's it for the plot because it's not too complicated. On to the side characters. I had side characters I liked and some I disliked and some I pitied.

Let's start with the emperor. I disliked him. He was suspicious, narrowminded, liked making himself out to be kind when in actuality it was just guilt, and allowed his son to run rampant.
Spoiler

He claimed to feel grateful toward the Ban family, but didnt give them justice after someone tried to kill Ban Father. Claimed to appreciate Rong Xia, made him suffer for others mistake by hitting him with a board, laying him out for months. Knew his son tried to assassinate Rong Xia and almost succeeded, did nothing about it. Knew his son was violent and hated Ban Hua, let him take power in court. Killed both Ban Huas grandfather and Rong Xias dad I believe, and was only kind to them out of guilt (maybe some affection for Ban Hua mixed in, but only because she was harmless.). Let me be honest and say if Ban family was in any way useful, theyd have died under his hands. They saved their lives by playing s*upid and being useless. If this is the way he treats people he is grateful to, I really don't want his gratitude. I'm glad he died at the end, at Rong Xias hands at that. He was incompetent and overly suspicious.

[collapse]

Continue with the princes. Theres two, first and second prince. Second prince is a bastard and that never changes. Hes a violent and irrational d*ck that deserved what he got. First prince I actually felt bad for this guy. He was indecisive and had the backbone of cotton, yes, but he himself wasnt a bad person. He just really liked to bury his head in the sand when the people close to him did terrible things. Thankfully, he had character development.
Spoiler

After being starved and left unable to bathe for months by his "beloved" second brother, he finally becomes disillusioned. Even voluntarily gives up the throne, with protests coming from those close to him. He was set to live a decent life thereafter. But the people around him just kept f*cking up, attempting to take revenge against ML. In the end he suffered from both his wife's and sisters actions, and got locked up alongside them. I genuinely pitied him, everybody wanted to use him for the throne or they didn't consider him when making plans, making him suffer the fallout. By the time he gained a backbone, it was too late and all that had happened, happened.

[collapse]

Next is the Shi family. I disliked every single member of this family. A menace to society, for real. Even Shi Jin, the second male lead, was disliked by me. He was simply too useless and indecisive. Similar to the prince really, except no character development so he remained like that till the end.
Spoiler

Shi Father was a d*ck that sacrificed his kids for his position. Shi Fei was just an unlovable person who probably needed therapy for the amount of hate in her heart. The Shi princess who married the prince also needed therapy, she was too power hungry and blind. She so badly wanted to be empress she even set her husband up, also she drugged him to sleep with concubines he refused to sleep with (FOR HER) just because she thought he felt some type of way about her not being able to have kids so far. Yall she was crazy. Mother Shi was useless, as useless as her son.

Shi Jin, who can only be described as a weed in cow dung, wasnt that bad compared to the rest of the family. But he wasnt that great either. He had feelings for Ban, but could never put her first. She probably wouldn't even be 5th on his list of priorities, he was so stuck on protecting that rotten family of his. Even the prince snapped out of it eventually, but Shi Jin never did. I'm so glad he never married Ban, she would have suffered because she would have been last on his list. He liked her, but not enough to do what Rong Xia did and set aside societal pressure and such to be worthy of her.

When Ban Huas grandma was about to die and she stormed into the palace, he tripped her up on her way there, but Rong Xia piggybacked her all the way, regardless of consequences. When they had evidence Shi Fei arranged Ban Fathers death, he obstructed the investigation despite thinking she did it. When Shi Fei ended up being a scape goat for the family and sent into exile, he did nothing for her. When Ban family is ransacked and held hostages (not really) he does nothing. When he is sent out onto the field to fight against the rebellion (Ban Hua and Rong Xia), he really goes and fights, and only switches sides when his father is beheaded. Yall see where I'm going here. In all of these cases, I kept expecting him to change his mind and do the right thing. I really wanted to feel bad for him and his unrequited love for Ban Hua, but he was so unworthy of her. Similar to the prince, he let his family and higher ups dictate everything, never having the courage to step up. He wasn't much better than her ex fiancee cowardly self, except he didnt ditch her. He just did absolutely nothing to help her either. Rong Xia let her thrive, Shi Jin would have buried her glow.

[collapse]

Lastly I'll talk about her ex fiancee, the Xie family.
Spoiler

At first he irritated me because he was so mopey about something he himself did. But by the end he suffered and wasnt a bad person. Unlike Shi Jin, he switched sides early and saved Ban Hua from an arrow. He also didnt let Shi Fei return to the capital because of all she did. I didnt necessarily like him. But after he was blinded, his brother castrated, and his sister married to a madman, I didnt hate him either. He suffered what he shouldve in the end. Also Ban Hua treated him like the dirt beneath her shoe, she never liked him, and the Ban family never let that man go lol, so I wasn't too upset. It irks me the way he treated that s*x worker that eloped with him though. She got her revenge in the end.

[collapse]

So I think that's basically it all together. The ending was of course a HE. Nobody died and ML and FL
Spoiler

sat on the throne and had one son. No concubines and the peoples lives improved.

[collapse]
I definitely recommend this if you like historical romance. It's an enjoyable read. <<less

I love the MC, her family and the ML. It's a good story with good characters and plots. I laughed at how pure and innocents the MC and her family is. Truly enjoyed the author's writing style.

I hope the current translator don't drop this novel again, as I think it had been 3x the translator changed. So translator: we appreciate your work! Keep it up!!

If you watched the drama, this novel is waaaaaaaay better. I think the drama butchered the whole story and characters. In the drama the family was... more>> matching her with potential husbands.

Spoiler

In the novel, they would rather her be happy and unmarried for life rather than be partnered with an unsuitable guy.

One of my favorite novels. MC is kickass but with many faults that makes her extremely loveable. Her immediate family relationship is very heartwarming. ML is brilliant but also has failings and needs the MC to protect him. The intrigue makes for a captivating read.

Spoiler

The secondary Male leads were treated kindly by the author but imo deserved much harsher endings.

I have always love the author's works and this one is also definitely one of my favorite.

I like how more humane the Male Lead is compared to author other works. All of ML reaction to Female Lead quirkiness and smartness is really fun and interesting to watch. ML seems more like a normal living being and not the 'high-above-pure' ML which is different than author other works. FL family that also dote dearly on her and always support her is also one of the good point of this novel.

Just like... more>> author other works, this novel purpose is to bring us to watch ML and FL journey to falling in love to each other and no other obstacles are in their path. It feels like being swept by the current of their love sweetness for each other.

What I most like about this novel is FL confidence in every way possible. She have her principle and moral that others can't broken and this is admirable of her. She is not afraid of people's mouth always gossiping about her. She is also proud but still know what is wrong and what is right. This kind of strong Female Lead is always likeable and lovely to read about ^-^

As always the author never disappointed this reader! ヽ (*⌒▽⌒*) ノ <<less

    • I have always been a fan of the works of this author. She is probably one of the reason why I got hooked with Chinese novels especially the historical genre.
    • This novel is such a breath of fresh air. Why did I say that? I really appreciate the author's writing style here. The beginning of the story revolved around the comedic scenes and silly antics of the female protagonist and her family. It seems to be a very lighthearted read but as you dwell deeper into the novel the dark undertone plot eventually resurface. So I find it very unique comparing to other novels.
    • The female protagonist is such a charmer. Confident, bold and beautiful. Others may find her vain because of her materialistic pursuit but she has a very kind heart. Some mock her but she doesn't care.
    • The only cons for me is the scenario and the chapters near the ending. That situation kinda look silly. I'll put it on the spoiler. But overall, it's still a good story.
    • Spoiler

      There was a rebellion and the second prince seized the throne. The crown prince was easily detained because he was so naive and have a soft temperament. The second prince is such a pighead because he did not govern properly, he just kept on doing want he wanted, tyrannical without a sense.

This is so good! It's well written, the characters are well established, and the conflict and the setup were done well. The title says it all - I am this type of woman. Like the title, the MC is domineering, not in the sense that she beats up people everywhere, no, she's domineering because she knows which fights to fight and which sins to forgive. The novel cover art is also very fitting. Just see the title and the cover art together and you'll basically grasp MC's personality.

The Ban family... more>> and the ML are so endearing. The family love, as well as the romance between MC and ML are also written well. The MC is really someone you can't help but love. She's very smart, but she's so selective in what she puts importance in that she appears dumb to other people. Her brilliance especially shone when
Spoiler

ML became the emperor, and she became the empress. When there was an assassination for the ML while she was away tying up loose ends, she immediately traveled back to the palace and controlled the courtiers who were planning to overthrow her. She showed her fangs. No one can step on her loved man, not even relatives. The ML is also made more human when he has insecurities. He does not know if MC loves him and is insecure because he knows that even if MC does not love him, he will always love her. News flash: MC loves him.

[collapse]

+ the author did not exaggerate s*x in this novel. There's no waking up at noon because the ML tossed MC all night. There's also no r*pey scenes, MC is just as aroused as ML. There's no fainting because the MC lacked strength. It might be a small thing, but I really appreciate that finally an author does not think it's cool to add mindless stuff like that here. <<less

I couldn't wait for the translations, so I MTLed this. And I can safely say that this is one of the best and funniest novels I've read here on NU.

The FL is beautiful, vain, petty, decisive, strong, and independent yet never cruel. She's also rather crafty although she prefers not to involve herself in complicated matters. The ML is your typical two-faced gentle scholar, but he's genuinely a gentleman. The FL's family members, especially her brother and dad, are absolutely hysterical, but they truly love one another, which is something... more>> we don't always see in these types of novels.

I can't properly describe how much I enjoyed this story. Just know that I stayed up all night to finish the MTL version. It might have killed some of my braincells, but it was worth it. (Gonna be rereading it again while waiting for the translated version.) Give it a read. You won't regret investing your time. <<less

I am a big fan of this writer. Why? Because the FLs are not emotional fools.. They are not cold blooded either.

They follow give and take policy.

I liked the way FL reacted to her impending doom. She focuses on the present and likes to live her life. It was her free spirit that attracted the ML.

Those people who do not like unnecessary drama and cruelty, I recommend this book.

The Chinese drama, I Am Just This Type of Girl, is based on this novel. I read the translator's chapters 1-22, then MTL'd the rest. The FL, Ban Hua, and her family are rich, lazy imperial relatives. The FL is fiery, honest, enjoys beauty, but has a warm heart. The FL dreams that in 5 year's time, a new Emperor will take away their wealth and status and she will be killed. As a result, the Ban family decides to live each day luxuriously and happily while they can. The ML is a very handsome, capable, black-bellied official who slowly notices Ban Hua, enjoys her warm fiery personality, and helps her out. Initially, he sees her family as lazy and extravagant, but as he slowly observes them more closely, he soon realizes that her family actually has the best character, and the family is actually pretty lovable and adorable. It's a
Spoiler

happy ending. After some twists, the ML becomes Emperor, the FL is his only woman and Empress, the villains are punished and they live happily ever after. I'll post more spoilers on the forum.

[collapse]

This author tends to write complex, well thought-out characters, whether it's historical imperial politics or modern BL stories, so I'd recommend all of her/his novels. The translation is very good.

So, This novel have so many good points, the author is amazing, all his works have that special quality that other works lack. The MC is a frivolous girl, she like lush and comfort, but she is also very straightforward and take revenge on the spot, despite of that, or because of that, she doesn't hold grudges, and after everything is done she doesn't go around doing petty things. This make us see The difference between villan and protagonist in a much clear way than other novels. The ML is... more>> a two-faced guy, but not in a cliche way, I believe this is because the author is awesome in writting characters. So we can se a depht in him we don't find in other MLS. He is ambitious but not arrogant, and he also don't underestimate MC and her family just because they are simple in mind. He cherished everything MC did for him, and didn't let his pride get in the way. The comedy is awesome, and when things got a little dark the change didn't seem forced, and everything got even better.

I adore the way the author make a lot of critics about misogyny in her books, making fun of people that think woman have to be pure, kind, intelligent and submissive to be good, and poiting out that even if they are all that, woman are still not appreciated, She also kept criticizing the way ancient people (and a lot of modern people too) thinks that a woman must give all to her husband and blend quietly in the background. All this in a sutil way that don't obstruct the main plot or setting. On the contrary, all ties in and is very cohesive with the personality of the characters and their background. This is very difficult to do in a ancient setting so I'm impressed.

My only regret about this, is that sometimes the MCs this author writtes seem a little too passive in the whole story, like, they don't do much other than being loved. And even tho this is a refreshing point a view, (not having to support their husband all the way with little to gain and a lot to lose, and being the ones who receives for once) , I still wished to see a little more of badass atitude from them. But despite of that, I still love this MCs immenselly, and love to see how all MCs from this author support other woman when they can.

The onyle thing left to say is : this author gave me hope in c-novels again, after all those rapists and abusive Mls, and those MC's who behave just like the villains they hate. So give this one a chance, if you are reading for romance, comedy, ancient setting, or whatever, you won't regret it. <<less

The summary above has a very little relationship to the story itself.

The female protagonist (FL) lived in luxury and was spoiled by her relatives. She was frank and took revenge on the spot (by whipping), yet after that, she didn't keep any grievances even to novel antagonists. Notably, she's lazy. Her personality is akin to a cat. She dreamt of her tragic life after 5yrs and couldn't remember who overthrown the "Jiang" from the throne. So she wanted to live to the fullest before it happens

The story has a... more>> dark undertone, and quite tragic without the FL. Since the FL is quite silly, she didn't know the conspiracy why her family (Hou Fu) is brought up without a real power. Still, not all characters in position are unreasonable and selfish. For the ML, I expected him to be a cold hearted but he was not. I like that he was not much OP as other male lead. As opposed to other review, I don't find the ML's personality as realistic. He's too good to the MC to be true. I can't believe that he doesn't have a pride. <<less

I loved this story. I like the FL dare to live her life to the fullest and ML was so charming.

The Ban family was the fun and happy family, they were so loving and so protective to each other.

If you like fun, independent and smart FL, this is a must read novel.

... more>> The MC were not fall in love instantly but they were fascinated to each other beauty and characters then get along each other.

They were definitely power couple, they work together and help each other in difficult time.

I MTL this novel, honestly it was hard to read but I was persistent and interpret the meaning as best as I could because I believe this is a great story. <<less

Read and completed MTL. The MTL for this was very readable, and you get an idea of what is being said after reading the first few chapters which were translated well by the dedicated translator (thank you, translator!).

I liked the chemistry between the two leads, and I love how head over heels the ML was for FL. The romance was also very nicely developed, it wasn't abrupt and did not seem forced.
Spoiler

The couple doesn't officially get together until about more than halfway through the novel.

[collapse]

The last chapter of the side stories was a good way to end it, with everything coming full circle (glad the author didn't forget the fact that FL dreamt about the future).

Overall, this was a good read, even though some plotlines were a bit unclear, like

Spoiler

I still don't understand why ML's mother wanted child FL to die, and it wasn't explained or may have just been a victim of the MTL.

The side characters are funny and their interactions are heartwarming. The Ban Family is hilarious.

I would probably re-read this once all the chapters have been translated.

I think I forgot to add review for this. But all other reviewers already stated what I'm gonna said. The female lead and her family are the main point of this novel. They so fun and hilarious together. I love that instead of hiding the dreams FL had, she just told her family. It shows how much tight their bond is as a family and the trust they have not like other family.

edit : THEY MAKE A DRAMA BUT TO BE WARNED, they seems to changed Xie Wanyu into a... more>> chef and as a romantic interest to Ban Heng who is the fl's younger brother.

So good! I highly recommend this novel if you are looking for a heartwarming and funny romance. Fluffy and sweet, but balanced with a decent plot that holds your interest.

Also the romance is believable, no instantly-obsessed-at-first-sight kind of love, so it's nice to see the couple's feelings grow.

I love the MC's personality, so gallant! She might seem s*upid at first, but she's really not, she's just more like a military style - speaks straight, treats sincere people sincerely and doesn't put up with fake people, not afraid to live her... more>> life staying true to herself.

Not a bad novel to read with MTL if you want to finish it. <<less

It is good but the last arc spoil everything. It makes me uncomfortable. The MC implicate innocent people and damn it ruin the story. What am I expecting anyway? They're
Spoiler

emperor and empress

.

If someone makes villain reincarnation story, they are the antagonists. Should've ended it earlier or write something else to prove Ban Hua love him. This sucks ugh.

I really love this author works. I amazed by the development of stories and characthers.

The drama adaptation is so far so good. Although there are some changes, the plot is still the same.

I really love the Ban Family, they are part of Royal Family but they are so hilarious. Lol.

If you search for a handsome black bellied Male Lead, and not OP Female Lead, a well done plot and character development, you can give this a try!!

MTL read up to chapter 110.

FL character different from author's usual temperament.

ML still hiding his real face, looking forward to uncover his true abilities.

FL's dream still unexplained, who is the emperor?

Everything that needed saying has been said already. But hands down, I loved the Ban family and the ML was awesome in this. I actually loved ML more than MC.I like how they didnt fall in love at first sight or calculate each other for advantage and whatnot. Breath of fresh air!
