As usual, my reviews may contain slight spoilers, so please skim or skip if you wish to read this with fresh eyes. This may or may not be updated/changed in the future depending on story or character development.

I like the protagonist. I like the protagonist.

Man, it's been a long time since I've seen a fatally and intentionally flawed protagonist. I definitely don't agree with her views or judgmental outlook, but it just means there's room for her to improve. Now if you've seen my other reviews, you'll know how much... more>> I detest fat-shaming. More often than not, an author imposes their views on body standards through their characters and assumes that the readers will be on the protagonist's side. Here? Not so much. Sophia is well aware of her flaws, admits it blatantly, and treats her friend in a way true to her personality. She's a likable unlikable protagonist! (I'm sure hoping for some character development, because that'll be sure to raise my rating.)

The downfalls, however, includes the main love interest. Sure, I get why our flawed protagonist likes him, but he still feels too much like a cardboard cutout of all the main love interests in 90% of this LN genre. Also, the tone kind of clashes - the seriousness of her situation mixed with her and her friend's easy acceptance of her fate. This is a comedy, so maybe it'll work for the better in later chapters.

Aside from that, the translations are great. It flows smoothly and stays true to its original source, so I have no complaints with both the writing style and the translations themselves. There isn't much out yet, but there's nothing to lose to try it out. This is a hit-or-miss; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. <<less

Wow never thought I’ll ever review in this site but two words describe this story BS. I had every urge to throw my phone with how pathetic the MC is. The only saving grace here is Philip. Honestly she and her family was killed and she still can’t properly stay away from the man because he’s Handsome?!!! What kind of Sh** is that? I’ve read many and almost every kind villainess story in novelupdates and she is the worst FL I’ve read.

These stars are only for the translator’s effort and... more>> for the character of Philip. Other than that it’s just plain horrible. <<less

As a short story, it's a great read. Many details are glossed over, but it's a short story, so I can understand why it is so. This feels more like a story proposal for a longer series, in which it succeeds as.

Sophia is highly likable, but her villainess side is so underwhelming as a component of this story. She truly is a happy go lucky girl; is this because she was reincarnated or was she like this from the start? At least she's understanding. We first notice that she is... more>> able to see Phillip as a true friend, despite not living up to her beauty standards. She understands that her beauty standards are unreasonable, too. I find her attractive as a character because of these traits.

Like other users mentioned, the other characters are quite undeveloped, but this is a short story that chose to sacrifice details and development to churn out an idea. It was a good read despite this, too. Highly enjoyable and might reread it in the future.

The ending was well done. Not much to say about it, but that it was really sweet. Overall, the ending wraps up the story and it feels adequate as a short story, although this novel could easily write for 50+ chapters. <<less

Sounds promising.

Eventhough I already labeled the MC as someone sick in the head by just reading the synopsis, I'm still agog to read the struggles that she'll put up against the face of her past love. I'm kinda hoping that they won't end up together, no matter what the reason of the Duke have when he killed her in her first life, and crossing my fingers to have another man who'll stick for her.

Clichè yes, but whtvr, I just need a random novel to fill up my time.

I'm giving it... more>> a neutral rating because based on what I read on the synopsis, the MC's dumb by being attracted to her and her family's murderer. Who the hell in their right mind would be so? And really, I'm just bored.

Will edit the ff. Further as the chapters pile up:

•char. Development

•do they, the chars, used their brains?

It's dumb. Will drop. <<less

It’s a decent short story but not very deep. I will admit everyone besides the MC are very underdeveloped and even the MC’s “as long as your happy” line from her previous life ring kinda shallow. It could be due to length because it cuts out many details but overall if you take the story at face value it’s decent. I will say that the MC has quite refreshing, an unrepentant face-con with a dynamic personality, I liked her the best out of this entire story.

short and sweet! Perhaps a bit bland, this works ok in the oneshot format. Translation and formatting is super smooth.
