Recently, the manga adaption of this novel has begun to be translated by Secret Land Castle. The manga version is still a bit ahead and you can find it with a simple Google search.

The plot is similar to other Japanese shoujo novels. The main character is a noble daughter engaged with the prince. A rival girl appears and the main character notice how the prince seem to favor her.

Spoiler

According to commenters of the manga version, it's all a misunderstanding. The prince is only trying to protect the main character from the scheming vixen.

The rival girl tries to make the main character look like a bully, following clichéed methods.

Five stars because I can't get enough of isekai shoujo stories, and this one is pretty good if you enjoy this genre. <<less

Update (Volume 4) - Lowered a star because while still cute, the pacing has tapered off into a snail's pace. Excessive padding. Wish FL's brain prowess came in more often, but at least she is assertive whenever books and knowledge are involved. Her heart is in the right place, but the writing could really be improved to deliver a better story. It might be a personal gripe since I don't seem to be a fan of how odd the sentence structure and word choices sound? But that may be due... more>> to me not being accustomed to reading Japanese grammar.

Although this has a light-touch of misunderstanding/miscommunication (mainly because the FL is stubborn and oblivious to all those irrelevant to her interest in books), the FL is not weak. Story is about her growing out of her little shell.

Even if she doesn't realize it herself, she often drops tidbit of useful information for the ML. Story emphasizes that knowledge is mightier than the sword.

ML is very lovesick, but makes sense so because Eli is such a lovable (but dense) cutie.

I would recommend if you relate to an introverted book lover who is finally starting to grow up and notice those around her. A heartwarming, classic shoujo. Also, the illustrations in both the manga and novel are SO cute! <<less

The first time I read this I had great expectations with the story, perhaps this will be something new..
But no. The progress suddenly slowing down to snail's pace, more and more unnecessary drama. Dragging too long with the misunderstanding, miscommunication, and cheap dramas involving FL becomes more unbearable.

Then, I know the pattern after 5 volumes. Elli will find a struggle that forces her to develop as character, but strangely ML will always away from Elli to support her. He will just become a Deus Ex Machina who appear near... more>> the end of every volume to save Elli, doing lovely-dovely and kiss, then next volume all development disappear and irrelevant because we will get another cheap drama. Like all Elli achievement from volume pass didn't affect the story at all. <<less
