Second Hand Love Letter


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

When Shi Ran was twenty-five years old, she broke up with her girlfriend, Song Yi, whom she had been in love with for the past five years, because she saw Song Yi chatting with other people.

Everyone knew that Song Yi had made Shi Ran miserable, but how could she let go of it after five years of hard work? Even Song Yi thought that Shi Ran was just bluffing and soon she would lick her face with gifts and ask for reconciliation.

But Shi Ran didn’t.

She neatly moved out of the house she shared with Song Yi and came to the company dressed up coquettishly, ready to welcome her new leader with a beautiful face.

The new leader was resolute and decisive; an ascetic beauty.

Shi Ran was about to shout in her heart that she was okay, but found that the new leader seemed to be her old classmate, the old classmate who had just spent the night with her.

She seemed to be fine this time.


Everyone in the class knew that Shi Ran and Chen Ruoyu didn’t deal with each other. Mainly because of the second-hand love letter that Shi Ran threw to Chen Ruoyu when she failed to confess to Song Yi in the third year of high school.

Later, when Chen Ruoyu returned to China, her classmates organized a class reunion for her. Chen Ruoyu replied calmly, secretly clasping Shi Ran’s approaching hand.

Later, Chen Ruoyu moved into Shi Ran’s new home in front of Song Yi. In the empty cardboard box, a large box of certain supplies fell out of the “unsatisfactory”.

No one knew that the second-hand love letter was hidden in a drawer by Chen Ruoyu.

No one knew that Shi Ran was Chen Ruoyu’s dream all these years.

A soft story about recovery, childhoods and teenage affections.

I'm a harsh rater so realistically I would have given this a 3.5/3.7, I initially read this story because I thought it would be full of angst due to the title. It would be wrong of me to say it isn't that, but it's more bitter than angsty.

The redemption was satisfying but besides this there isn't much to say. A lot of the conflicts could have been resolved easily, but as the MC and ML are in such different circumstances, it's simply... more>> misfortune what happened to them.

The ending was sweet though not necessarily the ending I'm usually satisfied with, I'm glad they could get a happy ending they deserve. <<less

First up I want to say thank you to the translator/editor and overall I think this is a fairly good story. Unfortunately this is a good example of a nice GL story that has fairly average translation. You can tell that it was originally MTL, and the translator has then gone over it to fix it up, with some parts more obvious than others. There are times when a 'he' is meant to be 'she' and 'happy' is meant to be 'sad' etc. You're forced into double checking most descriptions.... more>> Overall thanks for the effort of trying, and I hope you that your English studies continue to improve.

As for the story itself, I'd give it a 4, and the translation does get better over time if that bothers you. <<less

Just like the reviewer before me wrote, the translation is a little bothersome. But it's a little more readable than mtl.

I did not have very big expectations for the novel but at the same time not little.

It's a little bitter if relatable but overall very mushy and satisfying. All though I don't have much words for it, it's definitely a very good novel.

I'd reccomend reading it to new readers but it does require a little patience.

The story itself is really nice, but the problem in the MC and Chen’s relationship is really easy to fix if they would have just talked it over. I get where MC comes from tho, in that there really isn’t a lot she knows abt Chen, and to see that other girl having what seems to be such a close relationship with her, and being compared to her, it would def not feel good. Translation isn’t very good, and it gets confusing cuz of that. I came to restart it... more>> after a long time (I only got to ch 10 the first time I read it) and was super confused cuz of the pronoun issue, I was sitting there thinking, I could’ve sworn this was a GL novel and that MC has always been a lesbian, why is she with Song Yi then if this person is a dude. <<less
