Transmigrator Meets Reincarnator


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

All Chu Lian had done was to read a book where the female lead had cheated on her wonderful husband. While wondering why, before she knew it, she was waking up in the body of that very same female lead!

Wait, did that mean the handsome husband from the book was hers now? Chu Lian decided to welcome him with open arms!

However, what she got wasn’t the kind husband she had been expecting. Instead, his personality seemed to have been completely flipped! He left her all alone on their wedding night… and just five days into their marriage, her dear husband abandoned his loving wife and left to enlist in the army!

Fine! Be that way! She could pass her days perfectly well somehow, even if she had to do it alone!

Chu Lian put her household in order, charmed the rest of her new family, and did a little business on the side. She even opened up some new trade routes! Her days passed peacefully and leisurely… Until her dear husband got into trouble at the frontline of the war.

Hmph, isn’t he crawling back to me for help in the end? Forget it, I’ll go save him myself!

Take your standard transmigration to the useless xth miss novel and just toss all the usual issues like political scheming and assassins in favor of comic misunderstandings and cooking. I'll be honest when I say I was expecting something else when I saw the title, but I'm enjoying this.

The male lead is natural very confident in his opinion that his wife is an evil woman who is planning to betray him, since he's reincarnated and she betrayed him the previous time.

The female lead meanwhile decides to ignore the plot and... more>> be a happy noble lady. Since she doesn't know the plot like the Male lead and is confused by his behavior. <<less

Just finished reading this novel, it has a few characteristics that will not appeal to all men, such as physically weak female MC, drama, not many fight scenes. But despite all that I still gave it 5-stars as there aren't many novels that are this fleshed out and refreshing to read.

Here are 5 Reasons to read:

  1. Lots and lots of food
  2. Fresh plot points/twists
  3. Plot moves at a good pace
  4. Relatable characters with different personalities, not all good people stay good forever.
  5. timebun's translation quality is fantastic :) <3 xoxo

It's the story that you didn't know you always wanted --

  • What happens when a girl who has transmigrated into a story as a loathsome character meets a man who has reincarnated and holds a grudge against her?

  • Chu Lian read half of a book in which the female main character cheated on her good husband. When she suddenly wakes up in the body of that female MC on their wedding night, she's thrilled -- a chance to have a wonderful transmigrator life with her hot new hubby!
  • However, little does she know that her husband has been reborn, too... into his younger self. Looking at the woman he loved, who betrayed and cuckolded him for another man... In his first life, he was kind and trusting, but now that he's gone back in time, he's out for revenge!
Here are some points that I like:

  • The main character is level-headed and not over-powered. She's just a practical, business-minded orphan from the modern world. She only read half of the novel she transmigrated into, so she can't predict future events and needs to figure out her own way to fit in.
  • Because her tastes are picky from eating good modern food, and her knowledge of internet recipes, she sets out to improve the food she eats in her new life. Great for food-loving readers!
  • The male lead is enraged at her original character, and he is very standoffish, rude, and threatening to her at first. But his funny/awkward attempts to slight her (that usually end up backfiring on himself instead) make him endearing.
  • The pacing of the story is nice and exciting without feeling rushed.
  • The translation quality is excellent.
Not many chapters are out at the time of this review, but I'm already hooked! I will update this review later, but for now -- highly recommended!

A very exciting new novel from our beloved volare group!

So far, the male lead is disgustingly evil towards our MC but his situation is very understandable [everyone can guess from the synopsis!]

This girl is hoping for some improvement in their relationship especially when the male lead realizes the female lead isn't the same person he is very angry with!

I love this novel so far and will probably love the upcoming chapters too!

This novel is very interesting because ... more>>

we have the female lead as the transmigrator and the male lead who is the reincranator, which this doesn't really happen in most novel.

Now in the beginning the male lead is trying to one up the female lead cause in the past life the "female lead" cheated on him, in which he fails to do so cause the female lead who is from the modern world read the novel that she transmigrated into and she as stated in the earlier chapters is a bit of a two face. You also found out that the female lead never got to finish the novel, she was only half way through so she has no idea as to why the ML who is suppose to be nice turned out like he did this the first chapter.


This seems like it's going to be a real sweet juicy novel that I can reread when I'm bored!

Anyways I can't wait to read more!!! <<less

Do not listen to the review of those people who clearly didn't even read far before criticizing the novel. It's like sniffing a food lightly without even tasting it yet you say that it is bad.

MC might be someone from the modern world, yet I don't see her try to introduce new stuff that will surely make huge impact to her current world except for food. But that's what makes her more interesting. I love the description of the food she recreate, it makes me want to try them too.... more>> Side characters are so-so, but I really dislike how some of her maidservants turned out.


Out of the 4 maids, iirc only one was left serving her loyally. One tried seducing ML, one was overly ambitious and wanted to climb on a higher branch, and one was so jealous of her master.


Other than that, interactions between MC and ML is very funny once ML got over his anger over the original owner of the MC's body. I suggest you give this novel a try, it is worth the read especially if you like light hearted novels. <<less

Overrated??? It clearly deserves the rating it has or perhaps even more.

Dont expect any hack and slash. Its a slice of life people and I understand problems in the old empire can be confusing to some"huymans" who are lazy.

The interaction between the MC and ML is almost none existent so its hard to deffuse the misunderstanding but I think thats part of the plot or side stories. I mean come on its a novel it has to be battered with intrigues. Why not just read children stories? ? I'm pretty... more>> sure those are direct to the point. 😑😑

Well its a good read nonetheless, slow pacing but it doesnt seem dragging. If you're reading for the kill this isn't for you.

You know how people criticize an anime after they have watched episode 2? Thats the thing, reading 20 chaps below is like watching an anime intro song then saying "aww im dropping it because the song isnt good." Foolish! <<less

Kind of an oddball mix of stereotypes. One of the original themes in this series involves not just a transmigration, but also multiple reincarnated characters. The MC is transmigrated, but there are also about 3 other main characters that are also reincarnated. Which makes a strange twist, because many of the characters have some future knowledge about the future. So each in their own way try to manipulate politics to their benefits. Even the transmigrated MC is also aware of the characters and story lines because she had previously read... more>> the novel, even though she never finished reading story.

It is kind of amusing to find that the male lead is also a reincarnated soul and out for revenge on who other than his transmigrated wife for her past digressions. The rest of the story is an easy read, with a very modern women being completely blasé about politics, how to deal with her temperamental husband, and truly going after what she wants to have a nice stable and happy lifestyle.

Unlike many other heroines where they can do anything, this heroine is an absolute foodie. Anything related to food, makes her practically the top dog in cooking skills. If you like calm and stable heroines, and like all the mention of the gourmet type of food in each chapter, you'll like this series. Where the heroine is calm and stable, the male lead on the other hand comes off as childishly petulant and cute in his revenge on his wife. Things like stealing her food, starving her by eating her portion, or eating the best dishes so she can't have any, all become very cute in it's own ways.

Overall, another cute romantic story. <<less

Hi there, here goes the comment, it'll not have any spoilers, just a little of what we know at this chapter.

The story, like the plot, likes to plays with the all-mighty clichés/stereotypes, we have a little cold shoulder there, a transmigrator here, a reincarnator right beside her, misunderstandings everywhere with the female character, and two potencial male lead right now, but in her words "she will stay put and not cheat", so, I'll take a chance and say we have just one male lead.

The characters development is smooth, the Chu... more>> Lian (female lead and main charecter of this novel) is a down to earth girl, simple and honest, she hopes for a romantic relationship but she is not blinded by love, neither is obsessed with being in one with someone, she just tries to be herself. She has cooking knowledge that everyone could know if she/he has followed a recipe more than one or twice, and a bussiness like mind, but I think more like common sense for a transmigrator of the current world, to think in money and how to make more money. The other charecters, we'll see them through dialogues and descripcion of what our main charecter read ahead in the novel, but, they are not just a "concept" or "reaction" or "stereotype", we see them as a granny who has lived a lot and knows a little of the world, a mother-in-law who's sick but want to see her son grow, a strict and stern brother-in-law who is a millitary man but is kind hearted with the family, also the main lead and husband-in-name of Chu Lian has his reason (other paragraph for him) ; maybe the exceptions are the family of the protagonist, the Chu's, who are narrowminded, a little petty and want to face-slap our main charecter.

The way it explains, little by little, the world we are currently in (maybe, behind a bush, maybe inside the wardrobe that we know it's lacking clothes) ; the dialogues are organic, expressive, not forced, and direct, we know what they want when they talk, the translator (timebun) and his/her editor made a great acomplishment there.

Our male lead He Sanlang/He Chandi (the same person, just different way to call him) has gone somewhere in the North, warmongering or plotting something against someone. He gave all the time cold rejection to Chu Lian; even though at first it was justified, with all the incongruences that there were with his memories in the way Chu Lian acted, I'm kinda amused he didn't think she may not be the same wife he knows; but I'll guess it's too soon to know what he might have lived and suffered in the original storyline, because, we know she cheated him with Xiao Bojian, and then she took control of the finances of the He household, but nothing more. Also, we see him struggling with his relationship, because he still have lingering feelings for her, maybe love, maybe infatutation, but it's there, I'll guess they will be the ambers that will ignite the fire of the relationship later on, and so he is overstimating the none existing evilness of our lovely Chu Lian.

The reactions to the desserts deserve a paragraph for them. They are really honest and, personally, they make me remember the first time I have ever tasted something I'm unfamiliar with. The surprise and expectations of the shape, colour, texture, smell and taste are nice and delicate, we are not shouting or moaning like it is a portion of Heavens, ignoring the ambient we are in. They are not something over the top like shouting, losing control over the cutlery and then space out a minute or two, obviously, we are not suddendly naked and in the wilds with the ingredients. Yup, a refreshing and NORMAL reaction to food.

The plot is slowly being brewed, now is thin, but it will thicken with time, like a nice stew. We know there are royal factions, but we do not know their names, where they are right now, or which is the most powerful of them all; we also know a little of the new family of Chu Lian, like every new daughter of the family should, even though she could have info-dumped it all in the first few chapters; we know there are more than one eminent family, but we do not discuss them right know. So, I really like that subtle flavor of "the storm may come from the north" we see the clouds, but the uncertainty of the rain is there. Little but not so light it will be overlooked, just like that.

The pacing is in the slow side for the big stuff, but in the meanwhile we have a couple of small events happening that add flavour (in more than one sense) to the story. The description of the ambient are fluid and not paragraph after paragraph after paragraph of details in the floor, wooden bed, wooden cravings, etc, etc, etc. I can say we can exercise our imagination with the furniture and surroundings, and not loose sight of the stuff happening there.

The speed release is good, one-per-day, sometimes even two. Yes, the chapters are short because they are just half a chapter, timebun (the translator) said that, but I don't see how that is important. Short? Wait a day and you'll have the full chapter; not enought, still short? Wait more, once a week then, and you'll have even more... As I said before, the team translating and editing this novel is good and make the reading a nice, light and delicious experience. <<less

I've read so many Chinese romance novels already and this one is one of my favorites!

The ML is simply too cute! The typical sharp tongue but cotton heart.

It was nice how the his "poisonous wife" slowly captured his heart. It's worth a try. I hope the translator will keep translating this.

Overrated AF, what's with all the stellar reviews??? Okay fear not, I am here to correct that.

First major flaw is just listing a bunch of characters, because in ancient China families were really big and apparently we must know every son, daughter, father, mother and their servants from multiple families.

Second flaw is the forcefulness of the story, this transmigrator and "reincarnator" character clearly suspect each other from the start, but can't be bothered to find out - standard Chinese web novel thing when the Author can't be bothered to actually... more>> describe something or some such. I mean I know there's isn't a story without them being suspicious and a bunch of misunderstandings but it's forced without any reason, they find themselves alone several times and don't even talk coz they can't be bothered lol.

Mah everything is forced, this novel is like xianxia without cultivation trying to be drama/comedy and what can you expect from the genre where conversations are summed up to - they talked and laughed.

Obviously I didn't get very far with 15 chapters but it is enough to review because it already sucks, later you can expect standard transmigrator pulling modern recipes and aweing everyone who is basically used to dog food. <<less

A breath of fresh air in the genre.

Different from the typical cold and ruthless MCs in these stories, our dear Chu Lian is a total dork. She's adorably sweet and laid-back, but has a spine of iron when necessary. The gratuitous food porn is also a treat; it's amazing how many problems can be solved by good food. So far it's been an enjoyable ride with no head-shakingly bad developments.

The main lead's behavior is of course infuriating, but that's to be expected with the setup. I can't wait for the... more>> eventual revelation.

EDIT: Bulgingeyes' review is a classic example of someone thinking that "this story made me feel angry = this story is sh*t". What a dolt. <<less

Ah, first of all I don't like romance in a novel because sometimes it'll ruined the whole story.

But this one although I'm still not reading it but after I read the comments and synopsis, it looks interesting, not because I love transmigrating and reincarnated MC's

But I just feel like something pulling me to read it I hope it won't disappoint me :)

Great story so far, not bad, not bad. I've never seen this kind of plot before so I would like to say this is unique, (I've read just about every story on novelupdates, [well to an extent] and I've never seen this type of novel.). From the amount of chapters that have been translated, it has beseeched my interest and I'm looking forward to reading the rest.

Warning! This story shud not be touched unless you are fully fed.

This one is a real food porn that could cause you midnight food craving, or sudden hunger!

Consider yourself warned.

This is a story about a modern girl suddenly thrown into a novel world, and despite trying her best, she still trigger all the flags, like men falling for her, women getting jealous of her, or events that cannot be avoided.

It is a very good read, too slow paced, but very entertaining

It is an okay read. It has some good stuff that is worth your time.

The characters are fun. The main female character is calm, industrious and a complete foodie. It is quite fun to see her cook and have other characters fight over it. But she also comes off as aimless. There isn't much that you can expect except to see her cook.

The male lead is okay. He is out to prevent future disasters from happening and he is really strong willed. However, he is portrayed as being petty and... more>> his actions are often downplayed making his part of the story rather weak. Still he holds up well especially when he interacts with the female lead.

The other characters are rather flat. Though, this is mostly because the story doesn't really focus much on them. Though that doesn't explain why those that receive substantial storytelling time are cast into comedy relief roles.

And the story... This is where I think this story failed somewhat. It really lacks focus and identity. Like, you can't have any sort of expectations because it just rambles on on random things. It would be about cooking, then it would be about family drama, then it would be about the ML jealousy, then it would be about side characters... It just doesn't have a continuous flow in its story telling. The momentum in one chapter has doesn't carry on into the next, each chapter building up the momentum. But instead throw it away to build another one. That is, the story doesn't give you a long and lingering experience. So, while each individual chapter is a good read, taken as a whole, it is rather weak and structure less. It reads more like a collection of short stories than as a one whole tale.


Overall, this is a satisfying enough daily read. A chapter a day and you well get enough entertainment, but its lack of dramatic buildup and continuous tension doesn't make for something that can get you truly invested in. <<less

I read up to chapter 109 in two days!

The story has been a lot of fun so far.

I usually tire of food novels, but this one manages to make food a large focus without spending forever describing everything.

If I had to find something to criticize, I would say that some of the characters haven't been seen in a while so I forgot their names (e.g. The 2nd martial arts guard for the protagonist).

There has been only once when I noticed totally self-serving logic that doesn't match reality, which was ... more>>

when the male lead thought to himself that he didn't want to hit the protagonist because his family was against harming women, but he had already choked her in the first chapter!

One of my favourite genre. I love all these transmigrated female MC novels. I like the MC. She's calm and cute. The ML seems like a childish brat due to his obsession for revenge. But I think he'll change later on. Reading this novel will make you hungry with all those food description.

HOWEVER. The chapters are too darn short. This is just like Hidden Marriage all over again. Better wait for the chapter to pile up and binge it later or you'll suffer just like me.

I have mixed feelings about it. I started reading due to business mentioned by translator yet so far business is just mentioned. On the other hand MC won my sympathy instantly by declaring I am not gonna be brain dead protagonist. Romance is very far away though male leads don t think so omg. Too much cooking and little action, but damn if this is not fun to read somehow. Though I feel a bit cheated I will continue to read it.

Update as of Chapter 191: So far, so good. The update schedule is fairly reliable, the grammar is quite good, and the story is loveable. I like reading things about food, and this brings about a nice bit of casual cookery.

I feel too biased to give this a proper review.

I have one gripe for this story aside from a few grammar slips, the released "Chapters" are too short. It makes me want to cry when I reach the end of the available reading material. The story is funny and fairly... more>> light-hearted. The reading is smooth. The grammar is passable. <<less

Love this story so far, really looking forward to each new chapter.

The female lead isn't cultivating some incredible martial art, she isn't the world's most insanely talented doctor, but she does have cooking skills that are slightly over powered. For the most part she is a very believable and flawed individual that doesn't come across as unbelievable.

The male lead is a great counter balance. Again, not over powered, not unrealistically emotionless or cold, completely believable.

The story is at times, funny, catchy and witty. A great read.
