The Villainous Princess Wants to Live in a Gingerbread House


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

I knew I had reincarnated as a child from a poor and ruined home.

And yet, I thought about the pastry shop, which in my previous life, I could not afford.

But in this life everything is different.

Originally, I was a possessed young woman who got in the way of the protagonist’s love story and ultimately wanted power.

If I want to avoid the bad ending, I must show the biggest lack of interest in power. Then, I will be able to bake the sweets that I have always wanted so much.

But with the emperor, not everything is so simple …

“How long will you avoid me for?”

The crown prince, the male lead, will drive me to ruin …

“You are my only cousin.”

Duke, the strongest knight of the empire …

“I love your lime pie.”

Even a s*ave who is meant to plunge a knife into me …

“I want to save you from death.”

Do you want me to be by your side?

Somewhat infuriating.

The OG MC had an extraordinarily powerful spirit companion, so much so that she should have immediately been in line for the throne of the Emperor. However, she was a normal, very young child, who went from abject poverty with doting, indulgent parents, to a luxurious palace filled with scheming strangers who all want to use her. Forbidden from seeing her parents again, given every material she could ever ask for, and neglected by her grandfather, the Emperor, who stuck her there, and her AH cousin who wants to... more>> keep his Crown Prince position, it is any wonder OG her wound up a mess? Then they punished her for turning into what they created.

I like the premise of someone who is ridiculously overpowered deciding they'd rather not, and just have a simple life baking instead. But this is not that.

I also like a character who hides their potential to ensure their enemies underestimate them, unexpectedly emerging from behind and win in the end. But this is also not that.

Instead, new MC is so abjectly terrified that every single person in the palace is an enemy who will kill her (since they killed the OG for not being nice enough. Literally, she wasn't girly and cute, so they killed her), that instead of embracing her powers and potential, she dumbs herself down. She basically castrates herself and play acts at being so sweet and simple and so "poor widdle me, I just wike cookies" as she signs away her birthright to simper and be thought of as cute. She's like a silly little lap dog they think is cute and too s*upid not to pee itself, and she's got one trick to keep her from being so dumb they chuck her out (which I could get on board with), which instead manages to turn her into a bird trapped in a gilded cage. Whenever she waits around forever to beg someone to take her little offering of cookies or whatnot, I just want to smack her. She's just getting herself more and more trapped, while hobbling herself from ever being anything more than their favorite pet and emotional opiate.

OG FL may have gotten killed, but she at least tried. <<less

Whilst I haven't read very far, Skite's review paints a very different picture from what this novel is.

It's not some fantastic tightly woven conspiracy novel but it's exactly what it says it is. A cute child-growth type rofan.

In the first place, the MC doesn't want the throne. She has various prejudices influenced by her past life and knowledge of the world she's in to make her afraid of the palace and imperial power. All she wants is to get her parents out of poverty and open a bakery. She's not... more>> even trying to act cute, this is a typical rofan so ofc the child MC is portrayed as adorable and endearing it's literally the genre.

Why would she embrace her powers and potential? She doesn't really have the smarts or ambition for that. To her all she cares about is baking. It's not fair to judge a novel based on a premise that it doesn't present. MC thinks all of life's problems can be if not solved but made better by confectioneries. She knows she's not going to be let out and her spirit animal tells her baking will strengthen her connection so that's what she does.

I'm not saying this novel is fantastic and it's faults like more on the clichés a rofan has such as MC accidentally doing things which would highlight her as not as special and then going omg I messed up help.

If you want a brainless rofan then go ahead but if you wanted some political scheming there are plenty of novels which do advertise themselves as that but don't judge an apple pie for not being a chocolate cake <<less
