Ruan Xi was reading a novel with a laid-back female protagonist at her own leisure. When she woke up again, she had transmigrated into the book and became the female supporting character with a good life, Ruan Xi, of whom the female protagonist envied.

In the story, the character Ruan Xi was the replacement for the engagement that had fallen through because her transmigrated, legitimate older sister had abandoned her fiancé from a rich family. Later, Ruan Xi was pampered to the heavens by her husband, and became the winner in life as an imperially mandated first-rank wife to an official.

Ruan Xi, who had transmigrated over, watched as her transmigrated legitimate older sister prepared for that marriage happily. Similarly, her legitimate mother had also decided on another marriage agreement for her.

I really enjoyed reading the novel and seeing that it wasn't overly complicated. The MC and ML were both likable and their interactions were very sweet. There's no drama between the two and their romance starts rather early in the book and progressed rather smoothly.

... more>>

The only real problem I have was with Ruan Ning, the villain. She's the main reason why I rated 3 stars as she wasn't a very good villain and took up a lot of screen time in the novel.

She's like a c*ckroach and remained alive until the end of the novel. The author often wrote her jumping around like a clown and it was entertaining at the beginning and middle part of the novel. However, toward the end, you're just sick and tired that she's still there jumping around to be noticed. Her retribution was also lacking and you can't help but wish something more sinister to befall her...


Overall, it's a decent novel. If you're interested in novels like 《Eight Treasures Trousseau》, you should read this novel. Although, don't have your hopes too high because it's not as good? But, it's also pretty good if you're looking for a novel that doesn't have the annoying misunderstandings between the two love interests and the drama level was minimal. <<less

Love this, I enjoyed reading this novel~ Although ... more>>

Ruan Ning was written as a stwupwed villainess despite having experienced three lives already, I could close one eye.


Like every time I reach the end of novels like this,

I felt sad and reluctant to part with the novel :'< and I really wanted to see (read) Ruan Xi and Wen Tingzhou's children's growth cries in Chinese


Although reading the MTL caused me a lot of braincells (actually no it was easy to understand but not very easy idfk what I'm talking about) I was satisfied overall.


Although Mu Qingci could've had a better ending but probably because of Ruan Ning's interruptions that the novel's (the one the three got transmigrated to [cackles in 132] plot was changed. And oh! I'm happy that the Ruan Xi in the novel (the original owner who married Qi Yue'an) was reborn as Miss Yang and ended up with Qi Yue'an. They're really meant for each other wipes tears. I think Ruan Xi (Wen Tingzhou's Ruan ruan) didn't transmigrate when she fell in the lake and. She didn't die from the cold, but it caused her to recall her past life's memories and the cost of this was forgetting her memories in her current life. At first, I was a little bothered. I thought that if she was the same Ruan Xi in the novel, then she and Qi Yue'an... but Wen Tingzhou... but when I saw that Ruan Xi in the novel was actually reborn as Miss Yang, I was happy and the rock weighting my heart was lifted.

And oh, Ruan Ning's ending...

It was fine for me.


Overall, this novel is good! There were some dissatisfaction but it didn't really affect me much. <<less

Hello, this is the translator here~

Firstly, a clarification about the summary: the summary was... literally written that way, and I have no way of changing something set in stone.

However, to give a better description, this novel has a decently-paced narrative that is more focused on the life of Ruan Xi (our female lead) after she has transmigrated to the ancient times, and how she adapts and thrives in her given circumstances. There is family drama and other melodramas typical of such novels, there are incredibly sweet moments between Ruan Xi... more>> and Wen Ting Zhou (the male lead and her future husband) through their courtship and eventual marriage, and interesting interactions between the various characters, since there are three transmigrators present within the story itself - namely, Ruan Xi, her older sister, and the original book protagonist. Through Ruan Xi, we get to see the different routes that all three of these transmigrators take, and how their actions affect those around them.

Though I will emphasise that this novel is a laid-back novel in general. There are slight bumps along the road for Ruan Xi, but those conflicts do not last for a long time. It's just a light-hearted read that is good for passing your time, while getting a few smiles in.

Sincerely, I hope you will enjoy the novel, as I am invested to translate it to the end! :)) <<less

I like this gem of a novel. It has a lot of twist and turns, but very satisfying to read.

Th MC "transmigrated" into a "novel", where the original body was supposed to be married to Que An, a happy-go-lucky second son of Houyan family, after the villainess sister refused this marriage. The villainess sister was supposed to marry this person originally but she refused, hence the marriage fell on the MC lap. In the original track, after she got married to this man, she was pampered to the heavens and... more>> became the only wife. Hence, she was the envy of both the origFL and villainess sister.

After transmigrating, MC found out that, not only did the villainess sister accepted the marriage with Que An, but the MC was also now engage with the ML who was suspected of being broken sleeve in the original track because he did not marry at all then.

The MC and ML pretty much fell in love with each other quite early. This story is so fluffy, you will want to finish this in one seating. Like I did.

I like how the author made some twist and turns on the characters. I was actually worried what if Que An also regains his memory, wouldn't it be so heart breaking if he finds his beloved woman now a wife of another?

Good thing the author thought of another solution and it was so satisfying!!! <<less

The best way to describe this would be standard.

Featuring a seemingly sensible MC that ends up being another bland, perfect girl and her loyal-handsome-flawless ML and having every problem they face resolved in the next paragraph except for one of the flattest villains I've read to date (because if they just offed her too soon there would be practically nothing in MC's way, duh). Personally, I don't even know what exactly kept me going for me to finish mtling this.

... more>>

The beginning was actually fine. I appreciate the author actually writing the MC to try and practice the skills from her original body and that it took time. But right after that, it was like riding a roller coaster on a downward sloping rail to the typical Mary Sue MC with her perfect ML (and a pinch of trauma regarding women... except towards MC, of course. coughs because the ML (the author) needs a legit reason to remain utterly pure for MC coughs)

Feels like the one who wrote this is utterly naive. All women need to be envious of the MC. Every woman that catches sight of the tip of ML's perfectly shaped nose needs to be captivated then burn with utter jealousy because how dare MC got such good luck! She should suffer a thousand deaths for having her claws anywhere near him, grr!

No, really. Half of the novel kinda felt like this.

We haven't even started talking about the main character of this novel: Ruan Ning.

Yes, the main character is actually Ruan Ning, not Ruan Xi. At least I won't forget about her in just a few hours. Why? Aside from 50% of the novel included her while the other half was both MC and ML, Ruan Ning is so... ludicrously, idiotically evil. There's no good point in terms of her characterization at all. She exists for the sole purpose of jumping around to make trouble that barely does anything at all to the MC because of the ML's constant protection. Thing is, it's like the author hates giving Ruan Ning just once to think about her actions. Honestly, it just feels like the author wants Ruan Ning to be a complete foil to MC's complete perfection. I cannot stress the number of times I read that Ruan Ning would argue or insult MC and then immediately afterward having her own face slapped fiercely.

But she's 1000% shameless and that's hilarious in its own right.

Let's just say aside from the MC/ML and Ruan Ning, other plots and characters aren't really worth mentioning. Sometimes they seem interesting but ditched right after. Nothing's really developed aside from Ruan Ning's reputation's constantly dramatic decline. Even the romance felt very typical.


Basically, felt like I just ejected myself out of the washing machine of some naively written, ancient China-themed transmigration-type fairytale. It had the potential to be amazing, the start was pretty good but... well.

That aside, the translations are really good! Kudos to the translator! <<less

This was a really sweet and satisfying book. I was hesitating reading it first because of its timeline and I was kind of fed of it but it did not disappoint me at all. I was fed with dog food that I vomited sugar. I can't keep the smile off my face while reading it. There is still the usual dog blood drama yet the romantic approach did not reproach me at all.

I recommend!

This novel has one of the most entertaining antagonist ever and you just love to see her jump around like a monkey and hurting herself with every jump.

The novel is about 3 reincarnated characters with varying point of understanding of the original story. Our MC know the whole story by transmigrating into a novel, the antagonist only know her POV as she was transmigrated and then reborn (with really great golden fingers) and the original heroine is just transmigrated.

As I said, the antagonist is very fun because eventhough she have... more>> all these amazing golden fingers, she is not actually the heroine/protagonist thus nothing good come to her. The theme of this novel is - lay low and follow the custom! It directly slap all other transmigration novels where the MC jump around astounding everyone with thier golden fingers and point out there's no way you could be safe showing off like that thus the best thing to do is just shut up and lower your head. When you see the antagonist tossing around even with all her advantages somehow you will feel pity that her jealousy and meanness just make her situation worst and worst and if she could just shut up everything will be fine.

The MC herself is a model for all transmigrators to blend in and follow the rules. I like her calm personality but frankly like any other novels without the antagonist you don't really care to read about her or her romance. I just mostly skim when she's romancing the ML, seeing villains being slapped and disposed off are just more fun.

The translation is very excellent but you could MTL this. Sometimes its easier to read the MTL since in the translation they still put Chinese terms in and you get dizzy while in the MTL everything is translated (either correctly or not). <<less

The main character wakes up to find herself a character in a book she read, the character in question was the younger half sister of a transmigator (not the original FL) who didn't want her marriage and pressed it onto her younger sister. However in the original book this goes badly for the transmigator as she ends up badly and the younger sister has a happy and spoilt life. In the current story the transmigator from the original is reborn and the younger sister is replaced with our MC. Everyone's marriages get passed around.

That's the premise of the plot. I haven't read more than the first chapter so I don't know more than that but I hope it helps

This really feels like satire towards transmigration and rebirth books and it's executed quite nicely.

... more>>

Third sister is a transvers who knows the plot and has knowledge that helps the ancient as well as healing gold finger, causing the attention of men to swarm around her. However, she was miserable in the first life, so was reborn by merit in the second life. But she didn't treasure it and the more she tried to avoid fate while continuing to hold onto her grudges and vengeance, the more she walked into the same path. However, despite being so jealousy and practically brain-dead, she managed to live past 30 this time, though not as happily as she'd wished.

Novel FL was naïve and merely concerned with being able to live well and eat well in ancient time. She is a transverse, but has practically no gold finger except for the fate of being the heroin needing to be with the hero. Unlike other transmigration novel, this neglected concubine-born daughter became a concubine of the cold fourth prince who already had other women in the backyard and only cared for power, not harboring much feelings for novel FL. Because of the small-minded rebirth woman, FL ended up miscarrying all three sons and was forgotten in the palace, became a low ranked concubine who doesn't fight for favor and only concerned with filling her belly while novel ML favored the empress, who gave birth to his sons, and the other concubines who birthed his children. Despite this though, as the heroin, she has the fate of the heroin, so when this life of lonely old ended, she was reborn and tried to stay low only to enter novel ML's backyard again to correct her fate of becoming empress dowager. Her story really gives a more realistic view of transmigration into ancient world.

As for our FL, the originally orphaned she thought she was transverse, but she was actually reborn, then forgot her memories, later thought she was transvers, only to remember the truth after marriage. Unlike everyone else, her husband is the novel standard pampering husband who only loves her, and though not royalty, as blood ties and is extremely valued by the old and new emperors. And the reason why ML only loves FL is explained nicely (childhood trauma of seeing his aunt died giving birth and being haunted by the nurse (?) because he saw the abnormality of it). FL is loved and valued by her family and in-laws, has a danger-warning gold figure, and everyone is envious of her good fortune while all those who appose her have no good end. A standard transmigration novel, minus the dragged on face-slapping, pitfalls, and misunderstanding plots. However, her cautious and low-key character does reflect the more realistic version of the ancients, as she is not like other transmigration into ancient times novel FLs who does big things. Here, FL keeps a low profile at first and tries to keep with the original's character so as to not be exposed by the rebirth. She studies hard to learn the ways of the ancients and due to her low statue, had to endure a lot and cannot directly face-slap her stepmother and vicious sisters/women. Because she is a woman in ancient times, so she has to rely on her husband and it's not always so easy to get rid of some people and she knows that and is patient about it. Over all, though her life is like a fantasy, her temperament is more in line with the ancients.

As for the original, she was reborn as someone with a similar face to FL and has memories of her past life. In this life, fate is again corrected and she still married her pampering husband.


The story really reflect karma, sins, and merit in life, as well as empathize that destiny, though can be tampered with and the path leading to it may differ, is not so easy to change. <<less

It's a light read, but by the end of the book there are too many plotholes left unattended and no character development, at all, for any of the characters. Don't expect too much from this.

The main premise itself (3 transmigrated women) was never, ever, addressed til the very end, and it's hella funny how none of them even have the consciousness to ask how they got there. Even the backstory of those 3 characters are barely touched (it was only mentioned that MC was an orphan, and the other transmigrators'... more>> backstories weren't even mentioned at all). It was later said that the MC was originally the OG!MC who lost her ancient times memory after learning her modern life, but it was never, I repeat, NEVER, explained nor did the subject got touched again. It's like the author was only throwing random shennanigans without giving any explanation at all just to make it more flavorful.

The characters are super duper extremely weak. MC's sister was still the same brainless arrogant girl by the end of the story, and she was supposed to have lived 3 lifetimes with a crazy amount of knowledge, had been imprisoned, jailed, blackmailed, and died. It's too silly to have a character who had gone through that much shown as a shallow brainless cliched villainess. Her character was so weak it's baffling. Such a missed opportunity.

Everything is one dimensional here, from the plot, the characters, the worldbuilding, everything.

Overall, really weak character setting with no growth in a very 'safe' plot. I honestly can't recommend this unless you've got nothing else to read. <<less

These is gold.

Great novel.

Great translation.

The villainess -Ruan Niang the 3rd Girl look like "Karen" - entittled creatures, so s*upidly evil but do exist in our reality. Entittled creatured. I almost pity her yet, I remember "Karen" in a real world.

I love the sensible Ruan Xi or Si Niang. The 4th girl.

For me, this is a quick read.

MC is your typical calm and elegant protagonist while the ML is a doting husband to his wife. Their life together can be said leisurely but full of drama (thanks to the ret*rded RS).

MC is quite clever and she knows how to adapt into her surroundings. Her only golden finger is that she knows how the plot goes.

While RS (the original heroine) is a reborn person with a very ret*rded personality. This is the first time I witness of how dumb this person could... more>> be despite being a reborn person. She have a very good golden finger: her medical powers. She have a greater hand than the MC.

But what makes her lose to the MC is that she's dumb af.

Everytime when I read her scenes, I was like bruh. Can she ever—I dunno—read the situation?

I really don't wanna know of why RS is the main character of the MC reads.

It is a good read with no heavily family dramas. Thank you @yuuki_Illene for picking up this novel and kudos for your hard work!!

I will wait for the chapters to pile up because there are some words that really confuses me. <<less

The MC is the calm and collected type, which makes her sister, another transmigrator, look even more ridiculous. It's a unique take on the transmigrator trope that there three (?) different people who have transmigrated. I think the MC might be the only one aware of the others but I haven't gotten to the introduction of the 3rd one yet.

MC and ML's relationship is fairly realistic. The progress is slow and you can see how naturally their feelings develop for each other. It's so cute.

This novel is pretty decent. I like how the romance progress of the FL & ML goes.

Ruan Ning's tossing will make you annoyed, but FL & ML sweet interactions will make up for it.

... more>>

The only problem I find is that, the author just... Makes everyone except the close people who interact with FL are vicious....

When FL got pregnant, other girls (both married & unmarried) envy & wish for her to have miscarriage. This happened A LOT in the novel. Wishing for people to have miscarriage is... So bad...

And the author freakin mention it many times even after the FL gave birth. I mean, yeah sure, you can envy the FL because of her fortunate and 'lucky' life, but to simply ask for unfortunate events to happen to someone who you barely know & didn't even have any intersection with you... Idk what to say.

Author, you made me uncomfortable...


OriFL is just pitiful to be entangled with Ruan Ning. Tbh I really like her a lot, and it saddens me when she died pitifully in her 1st transmigration. But thankfully the author makes up for that in the last extra. <<less

I actually enjoyed this novel. The brain dead side character made me speechless but she remind me to an acquaintance who was the most s*upid woman but never realised it even with multiple failures, she never learnt until today. Although the sister's character was unrealistic to many readers but I think there are always idiots out there because I know one in the real life.

I think the 3rd sister, Ruan San Niang/ Ruan Ning was over confident and unconciously deceptive to herself, she lived through 3 lifetime with many golden... more>> fingers and made her thought that everything should revolved around her.

For the MC, I think her life too smooth and I think a bit boring, her brain dead sister make the story more interesting. <<less

This is such a great no- nonsense book. Nothing feels too boring or as if something has been dragged out unnecessarily.

This is a slice of life but it also has a lot of drama. Only the relationship between ML and FL does not get affected otherwise there is a lot of good plot.

I loved how we got to know about the original MC and original FL, so glad they had a happy life.

The title says a lot, the story really is about an MC who is mediocre apart from having really good looks and a good bearing. She has skills sure but they aren't ever shown off as such apart from one or two chapters when she makes her hubby a sachet.

the most entertaining thing about this novel is just the cannon-fodder character (mc's 3rd sister) who had lived 3 lives. The first one in modern times then transmigrates into a novel world in ancient times and is finally given a second... more>> chance at living in the ancient times. Not to mention she still has golden fingers (a system I think) but still, both lives ends up miserably and never learns to temper her arrogance and s*upidity.

As for the ori!protags of the novel they rarely ever show up and have no presence and things should stay that way prolly to the end.

Honestly don't expect much from this its just a really light read about how the MC lives by in ancient times following all their rules w/o standing-out and marrying a sweet hubby. <<less
