Isn’t Being A Wicked Woman Much Better?


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

She possessed a villainess who is known and hated for her evil acts in an unpopular novel. But because of her personality, it was extremely difficult for her to play the villainess role. But not for long…

“I’ll fix your dress according to your taste this instant!”

“My request.”

“O-Of course! As per your request, there’s only one piece available in the whole Empire.”

People around me listen to me well even if I just frown and sit still. Since I don’t have to live in difficulty, I decided to just comfortably live on as a villainess.

“Father. Is it necessary for you to solve formulas in this slow and inefficient way?”

I thought it would be good to be a rich villainess, so I used all my knowledge.

“Why don’t you give me the honor of escorting the Princess?”

I have had enough of dealing with my father, so why did an unexpected character suddenly appear? What if this person disrupts my plan?

This is one of the best light novels that I have ever read and that I will always read!!! Totally recommend:) I read and reread season 1 of the manga version and was so disappointed when it stopped just when it was getting exciting, and I am still waiting for the continuation of the series. I was over the roof when I discovered the light novel version and that it is almost completed!!!

I like how badass the FL is shown, what with how she was a pushover in her previous... more>> life. The author did a good job in not changing how she behaved, obviously she was more calmer and quite but her overall outlook had not changed much to the people around her, only the people who had close interactions with her could tell that she was different than how the rumors described her. But even later on, people outside of her circle had even started to notice.

I especially liked the scenes between the FL and the ML, even more so when they finally kissed!!! There was even a scene where they fooled around a little but not going all the way due to the ML who wanted to wait till she was a full adult. The scenes where he had to deal with her disproving male family members were hilarious as you can just see all the volcanic hated he is receiving due to him dating their treasure.. <<less

I like that after she realised there's nothing good in staying as a pushover, she decided to become a villainess. Well she isn't really that much of a villain, she doesn't act out in anger, just didn't bother correcting other people's perception of her. I like the ML too since he's not really a righteous person. Their pairings are just Villain x Villainess trying to get away with tax evasion lolololol

I kinda find it funny when Deborah asked Mr. Cat (the informant) the information about Isidor and he twisted his infos saying how nice is Isidor to the point that Deborah thought he was a fanboy lmaoo I read the spoiler in NU forum btw

TL;DR: It's good, would recommend it if you're into other novels with a similar shoujo villainess setting.

First off, not sure why some people are saying our protagonist is acting like a pushover. It's making me double guess if we read the same novel. Won't say much about the topic since a lot of other people already have, but the female lead has BDE, she's a certified hot girl.

Anyways, to begin with, the story isn't super plot-oriented. I struggled to recount any major plot beats throughout the chapters I just finished... more>> reading. All goals are long-term; and based on what I've read from spoilers, the overarching story isn't anything particularly special.

Or perhaps I was just so enamored with the story's resident hot girl that I was just too distracted to notice anything of note.

Have I mentioned that I enjoy reading about the female lead? Whether or not you buy into her and the male lead will most likely make or break the story for you. I was on board with the romance aspect of the novel the moment our protagonist realized the male lead doesn't pay his taxes. However, if you're not a fan within the first thirty chapters, I doubt the rest of the story will do much to change your mind. Take note of the "god protagonist" tag, if you don't consider the protagonist to be a queenie then this story may not be for you.

Also, female lead is hot.

I'm enjoying myself so much that I can't really tell if the novel is objectively of high quality or not, so I'm giving it 5 stars based on pure emotion. Worldbuilding elicits more "... really?" reactions from me rather than "oh, cool" ones, but still, 5 stars.

I'll come back and edit this if my thoughts change. <<less

I like this story very much... such a refreshing approach. It's not all about the romantic relationship of the main characters which develops at lightning speed but rather slow romance emphasizing slowly getting to know each other. At the same time, it's laced with funny moments and positive character development. I especially love that way the FL adapted to her status of a villainess.

Btw, I think the author might study/work in marketing as there are quite a lot of interesting information contained. This is definitely something very interesting to... more>> read about. <<less

4-star: I don't know about other things but the FL is dumb.

She's always been a pushover in her previous life so she decided by not being one in this life, but does nothing to change her mindset and just stops talking a lot so people won't think she's a pushover. She literally makes zero effort at anything.


3-star: Ok she is still a pushover, her brothers in this life demean her and treat her like tr*sh. She is scared of them without fighting back.

I read until C30 and currently still reading it not for the FL though, the story gets interesting

It's way later in the story when it gets revealed that the actual saint is the FL, not Mia and Mia is a b*tch. She is being used by the Dogwar or someone in a high standing position. Only Isidor and her father know that FL is the saint.

I like Isidor. The FL is starting to use her knowledge a little bit in 20s. She senses that something is wrong with the way FL (Mia) is.

5-star: At Chapter 83, the story gets better as it goes on, some of the chapters focus on the business run by the FL, still it's fun. The interactions between FL and Ishidor ; FL and her family get so better.

what? What boring? You just don't like reading about formulas, business, strategy, marketing, etc. This is very enjoyable and entertaining for me. But I can't blame you. I've read until c92 and the story still focuses on fl's business, no progress on the og story (the fishes of the fake pink haired bish). It's really slow, less drama and less action. It's a really light novel. A stress free story.

but I still love the story. FL is smart business minded, a real s*ave of money born from capitalism. Hahaha. I... more>> love how she adopt the things from modern world to her current world and I love how she chooses to maintain the villainess image even if she's trembling inside. ML is the same a smart cinnamon that's also a monster born from capitalism. As for romance, it's slow burn but I love the fluff moments. <<less

Really nice so far. The plot is not too out there, but it's enjoyable because the transmigrated heroine was not an assertive character to begin with. So the readers see her struggling to act the part to survive. Looking forward to more chapters!

As all readers know, the MC makes or breaks the entire novel. In the villainess isekai genre, I personally like a MC who is quick on her feet and proves condescending bastards wrong on a daily basis. Here's that MC.

MC does not thoughtlessly throw herself into situations and is instead rather calculating of her moves. Because of the terrible reputation that the owner of the body she's possessed left behind, MC constantly suffers from constant slander and misunderstandings.

Even so, MC plays the villainess role very well, without acting heartless and... more>> actively hurting others. It's more like she chooses to unleash her witty side and be a villainess to protect herself. I like that matter-of-fact side to her character. However, it still doesn't sit well with me how she never corrects others' negative speculations of her, but I think this will only make it even more satisfying later on when she proves everyone wrong.

The first person who notices and embraces her change is her father, and their relationship blossoms. It's refreshing to see how much effort MC has to put into appealing to her father and how quickly he warms up to her, rightfully so. The fluffy moments MC spends with him in the beginning make him seem like more than just a wallet, so I look forward to more father-daughter bonding scenes to come.

Although the author writes the original novel's FL and the "fish of her reverse harem" pretty stereotypically as annoying bastards, I like how the MC focuses more on exploiting the knowledge of the original story to her own advantage than on obsessively helping or avoiding all the original story's characters. Even when she does inevitably encounter some unfavorable situations involving them, she doesn't back down and handles them elegantly and indifferently like an absolute queen. MC's level of independence is incredibly attractive, so much so that the ML and I have fallen for her for that very trait.

The romance aspect is not as developed as the MC's character in my opinion, but it's a work in progress. The ML is overpowered and like MC's knight in shining armor. Yet, with the way the author has written their relationship, the pair stand on the same level as partners, and I appreciate the mutual respect they have for each other.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every chapter of this novel so far, and I'm excited to find out how her relationship with her family and the ML progress in future chapters. <<less

reading this kind of stories really makes up my day. The plot might be quite simple, and not extravagant but that's what I like about it. I don't care if it's a genre that is cliche, and overrated. I am not a fan of overly dramatic, and complicated plots (well, depending on my mood, lol) because I read not to split my head open deciphering the plot (altho I enjoyed it quite a bit sometimes lol). Also, I love the narration. It's relatively simple, and easy to understand. And our... more>> scammer of a princess is now one of my favourite characters hoho. Well, there's a lot of FL with similar traits as her but she gives off a different vibe for me. My deborah really is a cute, lil viper & I love her sm. Her emotions, and internal monologues are really relatable, and hilarious sometimes but her, implementing the claws she's polished as a monster bornt in the capitalist world is amazing. She also appears to be a person not easily swayed by emotions but rather act results wise. Her realization of herself being a pushover might have dawned on her rather late in her past life, but as a second chance has been given to her, it's worth to read where her viciousness, and cowardly (?) tactics lead her. I also like the Seymour household quite a bit especially the duke, and enrique (my qt cinnamon roll). I first don't like Isidor because he's a scammer but turns out they flock pretty perfectly so it's a green light for me. Kudos! <<less

I love the character of our MC. Can’t wait for people who realize she’s not a dumb rich arrogant villainess soon. I also look more forward to interaction with her brothers and the progress of their relationship.

first meeting with ML is dope hehehehe. Can’t stop laughing how cookie is hooked with the catnip lols. The ML is rich and smart and I just love him. Can’t deny he’s already attracted to our FL hihi.

Another plus point is how the FL is tryna venture the business... more>> world. I love tropes like that :) <<less

I started reading the manwha and became obsessed with the MC and the esthetic of it all; then I started reading the tapas' translation because I couldn't get enough (the little details that the manwha misses are really entertaining to read!) ; and then I started reading mystical series' translation because I couldn't wait any longer.

I LOVE cunning couples, and the chemistry between the FL & ML works for me. Surprisingly enough, I also love the writers' humor, this novel has made me laugh out loud more than once.

I'm such... more>> a fan, of the novel and of Deborah <3 <<less

Its a really fun and interesting novel to read. Definitely my type of rom-com story. Cute and funny. It's well written and well translated. Exciting and fun, actually I realized I smiled a lot while reading this.. Its a bit of a slow romance story, but even without the romance, its a good read. Feels refreshing and creative, I love it!

Have lots of cute characters. I love them! Especially the FL who is a bit of a nerdy-clever side but is adorable and is trying to learn to be a... more>> badass. Love the characters development. I think she's gonna be one of my most fav FL from the novels I read :) <<less

This is one of the best KR webnovel I've read in a while. Usually, to me, KR novels focuses on mundane thing and failed to make it interesting, it made me yawn and get sleepy a lot which ruins my reading mood. It's usually hard to get into the first person pov too, since it feels confining, but this one did it nicely.

The progress is impeccable, I think. Although it didn't progress as quickly as average CN novels, this author managed to keep my interest and attention. The characters' relationship... more>> development is also sensible and is not too sudden. I love that the MC tries hard to be in character, I'm tired of MC changing the original's character and complimented for it, or the classic "I think a lot when you punish me" or " I almost died and I lost my memory a little" bs. It's tiring. It's bland. It stops being special after the first five same plotline and explanation.

  1. The MC tries hard to maintain her body's personality. Maybe not to the extreme, but she didn't randomly became nice and warm to other people too, since her aim is to live as elegant, non-pushover, villainess. It's more entertaining to see Protags getting in the character rather than tossing away the setting and insert themselves completely in it. I really love it. I wish the author could keep this up until the end so I don't have to change my rating.

The first sixty chapters were interesting in how she's trying to survive that world without raising the death flag. I was thinking of five stars. I agreed with other reviewers up to that point bc the novel excited me very much too!

However, after around chapter 60 and onwards, for about fifteen to twenty chapters, it mainly focused on her masquerading others' marketing tactics in the previous world as her own. It WAS VERY BORING reading about how she camouflaged marketing techniques for her cafe using herself and the ML as... more>> models and how much success it will be

Example: drinks to go. She attributed her exam success due to her cafe coffee to go cups


The pace picked up on the romance between her and the ML along with interactions of her and her family. It is very cute. Hopefully it will remain like this.
Translated chapters are up to about ch 141. I will edit again if the story is better. <<less

I really liked it st the beginning, but than it gradually became kind of boring to read. They focused too much on the formula, and business aspect (which is Great but it gets boring very fast). I reallyy liked the characters. I love how her relationship with her family (her father, younger brother & older brother) changed thoughout the series. I am indifferent to the ML, hes a little boring tbh. Bur I really like his interactions with Deborah!

Absolutely adorable.


I love the dynamic between ML and FL and I also loved the twist of her being the saint Nyla.

It was also cute when she told the ML (before reincarnation) that she wanted to be reborn as a villainess since he said his type was 'bad girls'. Though, their first meeting was a little concerning...

its nice, easy to read and not overly complicated (in my opinion). While im more interested in the few memories of their past life, and the hows (how magic works, if you just have to solve for the mana needed for a distance why does it take so long if the same application is applied and where do they get the problem that is needed to be solve in the first place.)

Reasons to read this are:

  1. No extreme issues, an easy going story (compared to other isekai)
  2. ML and MC are likable, the misunderstanding was solved fast and MC was logical in solving that one.
  3. The MC's family are quite adorable, the eldest is meh, the second is hilarious, the youngest is the definition of adorable, and the father is affectionate. The mother, briefly mentioned once in a while, is also quite likable.
  4. Antagonists are mehh. They were not really that good, but its easily explained by their ambitious nature.
  5. The growth in characters is nice, you see them communicate and slowly create and build up their relationships, platonic or romantic.
  6. There wasn't really a side ship, so you can focus on the main ship and their wonderful chaoticness.
Reasons Not to read this are:

  1. not as much actions, if you're into that.
  2. later in the novel, the business was not focused on later when bigger issues were present (events for example). I did like the business partnership and the botanical stuffs but its not that much. (If you're into that stuff)
  3. some shows a bit of possessiveness and obsessiveness. If you're easily triggered by that.
  4. there's not much reasons not to read it, but if you're looking for a long worthwhile read I won't recc this. It suits a more flexible reading since its easy to digest.

I came here after reading the manhwa coz I fell in love with the FL she is amazing, beautiful, resourceful, cute and cunning. I live her so much 🥰

Isidor is superbly handsome as MC said he's a flawless blondie. ML is also the master of the guild and he helps MC in every situation. Their relationship and dynamic is worth reading. ML gradually falls in love with FL but he falls hard.

The plot and pacing of story is superb and worth giving your time.

the empress is the culprit she made deal with demon and using the ogFL the idiot bi**h. She is not a saint but used alchemy to turn her hair pink and used blood to increase her divine power. Empress wants her son the 3rd prince to be the Emperorso she used thia idiotic method. The villain are not worth much.


Th FL family relationship is also a nice read. They gradually forms a bond. I personnel like veleque more than older brother. The youngest is the cutest. Her father is also amazing. He became a doting father. ML has a hard time dealing with FL family as they dote on her too much and hate him coz they think he's seducing MC lol.

The story is funny and amazing not to forget all the business ideas they came up.. Great 10/10

OKAYYYYY so this is very good. I love deborah and isidor, love her relationship with her brother and love the overall plot. The romance is veryyy slowburn in the majority of the novel, but when they finally address they have something going on, it becomes amazing and full of fluff. Sadly the main translator dropped after the novel was licensed, then I found someone on tumblr that translated pretty well until chapter 143. From there onwards someone else took over and I decided... more>> to stop reading until a better translation comes out (It's just not worth reading something when it feels like strenuous work to understand a paragraph lol).

The webtoon is also GREAT and I'd recommend reading the webtoon and then continuing with the novel hehe. Can't wait to be able to read the rest of this amazing story. <<less

I finished the main story and can't be bothered with the rest.

I was really curious after reading the manhwa. But found the novel boring after a time. Lots of slice of life and chapters about her café business and magical calculations. Somehow, I wasn't satisfied with the final showdown, nor the chemistry between the leads

"Reality is stranger than fiction" after reading this, sorry that cant be true. This is the most illogical inconsistent thing I have ever read.

One chapter is an agriculture major, the other she's an engineer major. The characters are just brain dead s*upid. The information broker doesn't even know how to collect information. Like he wonders why is she asking me such strange questions? Any idiot can but 2 and 2 together but he cant even though its his job. The fact she is looking into this is already information in itself and yet he cant understand that! There was a sale but apparently it was a deal? The author tries so hard to make his look smart but he does look like he has sh*t for brains I kid you not.


This is just face slapping. Even face slapping the reader themselves.

this is the worst thing I have ever read. 0/5 I don't care if "You have to read the whole thing!" If I read the whole thing my brain stop working and i'll die. That or from pure frustration.

"Fiction is stranger than reality" "Its a miracle even reality stays consistent." This thing defies ever logical thing ever.
