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!

You should probably wait till the translation is complete to start reading. The pace of the story.... well, at this rate, even snails would overtake us!

The story is good. The translation is superb. The food porn has made me hungry and crave for food I had no access to at weird hours of the night, I almost wished I could transmigrate into the novel just for the food!!! Don't read while hungry.

The translator has warned us that raw chapters would be split into 2 or 3 translated chapters for the... more>> sake of convenience which is understandable as we all have real life issues to deal with. Am one of those people who prefer lengthy chapters, so logically I would mostly pile up a few chapters before I read. However, even with my pile of chapters the story is still not moving and this is so frustrating especially when chapters are now being split into 7 or 8 parts instead of 2 or 3!

I know the translator gave a warning that chapters are going to get shorter, and I thought that maybe if raw chapters are getting shorter then hopefully translated chapters won't be split into so many parts. Little did I know that it was the translated chapters that were being shortened! I shouldn't complain about something I have been warned about, especially since am not paying to read someone's hours of translations, but I have been reading the same chapter for 7 days now. Even if I wanted to sponsor the novel, knowing that I would be paying for around 751 words is not bringing out the generous in me.

For the time being, as a result of my frustration with the novel's pace, I am going to stop reading and come back on December 31st. Hopefully, the translator will keep her new year's resolution to finish translating this novel by the end of 2018. If there will be a completed ebook version, I will definitely purchase. <<less

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.

Can't make an in-depth review due to the number of chapters, however, so far it is very good :). The title gives away... more>> the plot that has been revealed so far anyway, hehe. <<less

I've just caught up to the latest chapter, so my thoughts are a little muddle headed and I'll redo my review later so expect my ramblings to be confusing.

If you're here for romance, you're going to have to grit your teeth until chapter 300 before the two Main Leads finally get down together to have a decent talk.

... more>> Everything before that, the MLI is off at the borders while the MC is at home wanting to be a layabout while she makes money through food recipes.

Don't expect any over-the-top kung Fu or other shenanigans. It's more or less close to our history. The MC also doesn't bring scientific advances to improve her house. Just food recipes, making it much more believable than someone thinking up how to make a train.

Also, it has a bit of a rough start but it worth bearing it.

Plot is rather slow to move, but the story's pacing is quite excellent and there aren't any overly huge time skips. In fact, from chapter 1 to 300, you could say the total amount of time that had passed is less than a year.

As for the MCs character, she has the best personality I've seen aside from Brendel in TAS. She's not over conceited or arrogant. If someone is looking for trouble with her, shes going to give as good as she gets. She won't condemn someone to death nor is she physically strong. At most, she'll make her attackers lose face by being calm and collected while also serving top-tier tasting food.

It's a huge contrast to other Chinese LNs so it's a pleasant surprise to me. <<less

What happens when two people return to the past, both knowing the future? And what if, those two people are the main couple?

This novel has fireworks from the very first chapter, and I'm here to tell you that it absolutely does not disappoint, for the following reasons:

  • The main couple's romance is adorable! From the start, the male and female leads have some pretty serious misunderstandings, but they're handled in a cute way. The ML is supposed to be the 'aggressor' but acts more like an angry puppy, while the FL is chill and mature. Since they're both going through their second life together, they're practically in the same boat, and hopefully they'll come to truly understand each other by the end. (I mean, does it bother anyone else when the MC hides their 'secret' all their life, even from their partner? :/)
  • As the title would suggest, there's emphasis on both leads, as you get to see from each of their perspectives. It's actually very interesting to hear the ML's thoughts and get to know his personality, because behind his cold exterior is a tsun- I mean, a warm heart.
  • The plot line is constantly engaging, full of awesome and fun moments. The FL's cool personality lets her stand above the usual politics and face-slapping, which IMO is getting a tad too repetitive in this genre. Although you still get a fair share of that here, it's mostly light-hearted and by far not the most interesting thing this novel has to offer. However, seeing how some other reviewers had problems with the story, so I recommend reading a few chapters to see if it's your cup of tea. (It's not because I'm trying to get you hooked on this novel like I am, okay? ;D) There's also a few pleasant surprises: I didn't think of myself as a foodie, but I've been hugely entertained by people scrambling for good food while drooling over the food myself...
  • The writing is excellent; side characters are usually diverse and well-developed so they don't feel like a waste of words. The TL does a top-notch job of translating, plus the reading community makes this novel more fun to follow. So you should come and join us already, huehuehue...
I admit, this novel has one weakness: there'll be nonsensical, cannon fodder characters that pop out once in a while, but if they bother you then you should just skip... more>> over those parts, because the rest of the novel is awesome! :D

Overall, this novel should tick your boxes if you're looking for a one-on-one romance, Ancient Chinese setting and generally refreshing read. But don't be discouraged if you're not experienced in these genres, because this story has a simple charm that can appeal to anyone! Good luck, and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did :) <<less

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

I like this.

Characters are nice, plot twist are decent, business management is quite up to date and reasonable, translation is great and thriving.

romance has it's own twist, fluff and flaw. Something realistic that shows every relationship needs extra work, patience and understanding from both sides, sadly more from a woman's part which rings true even in modern society.

The only downside for me is the cannon fodders, I wish they had more depth to them. Most cannon fodder are simplified, but it's a light read after with only 330 chapter after... more>> all. Translator split it and make it to 660 chapter might felt very short for readers who are used to binge read. Beware, Timebun's pictures of cuisines will make you drool, keep your mouth and device at safe distance. <<less

at start was brilliant her relying on herself to do everything

All the food making was funny

Gradually ever since the reincarnated husband fell for her it has went down due to her relying on him to much

No longer is the angry misunderstanding communication between them which gave it a twist compared to other novels

Hope it goes better

The villain is annoying and persistent

An amazingly well written story so far, with an OP (in a chill way) MC and an interesting premise (transmigrator and reincarnator). The translations are well done and update frequently, so what more needs to be said? Definitely recommend this novel. You won't regret it!

I usually avoided Chinese light novel, mostly because of the confusing terms, BUT this light novel is really, really, interesting. I read all 390ish chapter in around 2 days and sacrifice my beauty sleep, because this is real good, I tell you. MC was likeable, calm and calculating, while ML was too focused, the interaction between MC and ML was funny and fluffy in my opinion.

This plot is great, because no matter what the MC did, somehow the 'story' seems to turn around to get the plot moving. More importantly,... more>> food takes important part of the story <3 thumbs up <<less

I absolutely reccomend tgis book if you are looking for a LN that isnt too heavy, too bloody and too steamy. Lol, just ignore the steamy part.

I would like to put a few spoilers but in the end, I guess you find out by yourself is better. On the rough picture, the original CL isnt dead completely, surprising turn of CL origins, how Sanlang and CL turns every situation to their favour, and the best part is, mostly like the real insight of marriage life.

Thank you, volare, for a wonderful... more>> novel <<less

MC is dumb naive. Its not a problem actually but regarding that the MC already know the plot and her background as succesful entrepreneur with tragic childhood? Not quite right. The filler story also so bad that I think this story better to be titled as pattiserie reincarnator young lady than the original title. Well maybe it was the reason the story short lived (300 chap)

This is not for everyone.

First, the good points:

There is fluffy romance, lots of interesting food descriptions (do not read while hungry), and some great slice of life moments.

... more>> Timebun is one of the better translators out there, will post pictures of the food mentioned in the story, and even hangs out in the comments sometimes.

Now, the bad:

The main character is the most competent woman in the story; plenty of time is devoted to showing how stupid and inferior those who dislike her are, and every moderately moral or intelligent character likes her. She is, in short, a Mary Sue.

If you can't take the occasional intermission in the plot just to see the main character completely outclass a "hater", maybe skip this one. Otherwise, it's pretty good. <<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.

This novel has an interesting premise, but never really takes off. CL (the main character) is a very lazy protagonist, so a lot of the mysteries in the original novel are only revealed through forced villain monologues. There's almost no description of the political landscape and extremely little about what HCD (the male lead) does to build up his political and military power. The inner courtyard scheming is especially stupid in this novel since the villains are mostly morons who can't set up an effective plot, and due to the... more>> lack of focus on the imperial politics, there isn't a lot that's interesting about the grand scheme of things, either.

HCD and CL's romance is painful to read about. 1/4 of the later chapters describe food or this couple's s*xual misadventures. CL seems to equate s*x with suffering, and HCD never takes no for an answer. Then the author likes to spend lots of words on describing how terrible their s*x is. And apparently, HCD is the sort who feels comfortable

spanking his pregnant wife, in an actual corporal punishment way

, WTF.

I started reading the translated novel a while ago but decided to finish it in Chinese because I'd lost interest in it and mostly wanted to skip to the ending. I would say that the novel retained my interest until the couple returned from the north, and then it got boring. If you want to read about a lazy wife... Eight Treasures Trousseau had a more likable couple and more interesting scheming. <<less

Finished reading the novel in chinese.

My personal score: 70/100 (Better than quite a number of novels out there, but there are a few others of this genre that stood out better than this)

  • (- point) Using food as a bargaining chip is fairly common in stories involving brought-over knowledge.
  • (++ point) Starting to middle of the story was fresh and interesting.
  • (+ point) Sub-plots are decent, consistent and fairly straightforward.
  • (+ point) Story was engaging to read, until about 3/4 of it.
  • (- point) Introduced a main plot component at 3/4 of the story that brought the score down. I personally think author ran out of ideas, which was why the story ended soon after that.

At last!! I caught up! XD

The story revolves around a transmigrated woman who's a legit foodie and her 'lunatic' husband. Hahaha! 😂 Well, you can't really blame the MC for jokingly saying that to her husband. Who told him to act so differently from the novel?! The MC just wanted to have a peaceful and satisfying life with the ML, yet he's too cold for words! He'll literally become an iceberg at this rate!

Turning to the ML's perspective, the reason why he's changed into an iceberg is because he's dead set... more>> on taking revenge against his wife!! Turns out, he's been reincarnated!

Both don't know that their other half has been reincarnated / transmigrated, so they acted the way they did.

Romance is quite slow in this novel so if you want something to happen you'll have to wait for a bit. But I promise that watching their relationship turn from distant enemies into sweet mandarin ducks will be worth the wait. <<less

This is totally good!

But beware! Do not read this when you are hungry! Hooman, you've been warned.


Chu Lian, the female protagonist of this story came from the modern world and transmigrated to the novel which she read before. He Changdi is her husband who is acting opposite of who he is described in the book. The reason? He reincarnated and very mad at her as she betrayed him in his past life. It is a cute story where Chu Lian, relied on herself, using her knowledge from the modern world... more>> (mostly on food-related stuff) to get by so she can live in peace and He Changdi is acting all tsundere on her.

I can't stand this one. The ML is mean to the MC, and not even a cute mean. Just plain asshole! MC is strong, but I really can't stand the ml. STOP STEALING HER FOOD. the author did a poor job at drawing people into liking the ml, I mean.... ML is just an asshole at this point (I'm on chap 50). There's NOTHING likable about him. He misunderstands her constantly and it's a repeat of the same chapter with different sh*ts to misunderstand. I see he has a... more>> reason for hating her, but please give us something to like about him!? No? I'm dropping this one. 5 star for the MC, NEGATIVE 5 for ml, 1 for story. And why must we need to know every single member of the family so fast!?! 30+ random names thrown at us (can't forget, it comes with their back story too. Like I don't need to know the back story of maid A!). We don't care!

I mean, l would like to invite 'Zhen zhen' from "empress with no virtue " to slap the ML (along with the author) like how she slapped that maid who gave her husband 'gu.' Thats how unattractive the ML is, that I even wish a MC from another novel to unleash her slaps to this ml. Lawd. The author describe the ML as supper hot, but with his attitude, all I can imagine in my head is a ugly dude. <<less

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.
