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!

The novel just finished translation today and just want to leave my personal views out there. For those who don't want to read the whole thing:
The Good: Early story buildup, food, translation quality
The Bad: one dimensionally bad guys, extremely rushed ending
The verdict: 3.5/5. I recommend it. It's worth the time I've sunk into it. It went down from 4.5 to 3.5 due to the unsatisfactory ending.

The novel as a whole is gr8 but does have it's fair share of faults. The translation quality is great just as... more>> I've come to expect from this translation team. It's completely worth the time I've spent with this novel.
Starting with the good stuff. The novel has quite a good build up during the first 400-500 chaps. A good sense of mystery prevails as we get to know more of the story. The translators have done a good job with the translation and also making the readers hungry with the foodgasmic pics scattered throughout the series. I personally don't like the cliche CN op MC cultivation genius bs. So I'm glad there's barely any of that here. The good guys are likeable and their interactions r entertaining.

Now let's talk of the bad. As likeable as the good guys r, the exact opposite is for the bad guys. All of them are so unlikeable and just one dimensionally bad. Feel sad that their actions don't reflect human decision making sometimes. Some good guys make such an abrupt change to the bad side it's stupid. (No they weren't hidden bad guys. They just switched personalities it felt LUL)
As good as the buildup is of the first few hundred chaps the ending is just as rushed. The ending to this novel is the most rushed one I've ever seen. Inspire of that I've enjoyed this novel thoroughly and I believe that implies that for all it's faults it's a good read. <<less

Well, I liked it a lot at first, but ever since the main couple has gotten together, this novel just frustrates me. The author seriously has no concept of how relationships work, and all these descriptions of supposedly happy marital s*x that are actually kind of rapey leave a sour taste in my mouth. It has also been really dragging out over the final 50 chapters, introducing unneeded misunderstandings and not really any sort of plot climax.

Originally I'd like to give 5 stars rating because the translators are doing great job. But I decided to give 4 stars because in my opinion that the last quater of the story, the plot was getting ridiculous. I felt like the story line was being forced to give main characters some reasons for "face slapping" action and the ending was rush.

The story was starting in a good pace and nice plot but I feel a little bit disappointed for the ending. Don't get me wrong, ... more>>

It was a happy ending

but because the ending just like a summary.

I'd like to appreciate the translators for their translation's quality and consistency. 👍👍 <<less

MC is cute and the food in the novel is delicious and very nice to read about. She has no overpowered cheat honestly unless you count her ability to cook which is only a cheat since she's from the modern world. The ML is disappointing in the novel, the fact is his whole family, her whole family and all the antagonists are pretty disappointing as a whole. There are only about 2-3 characters in the novel that don't seem to have it out for the MC even though she just... more>> wants to be a lazy wife. I for one am very glad that most of the initial chapters are focused on her, the MC. <<less

Different from the usual boring ass doctor/assassin type of novel from the usual.

I Enjoy the misunderstanding between the Protagonist since that's the main focal point of the novel to those who's complaining about the food filter and the misunderstanding then get the f**k out of here, it's the same as the a Xianxia without the antagonist, boring dulled and stupid, and some of them even said that the protagonist "apathetic idiot" their personality is normal which in most xianxia are exaggerated especially the protagonist, Anyway 4.0 Stars since even though... more>> the romance is great it still lack the jealousy and drama which I liked to spice things up with, In the latest chapter though

a new female character was introduce who fallen in love with the male lead

so there's might be competition in the future. <<less

This is a fun read. I like how pragmatic the MC is. Unlike some of the more emotional MCs who are ruthless and take everything to extremes, she is much more tolerant and does not bother much with people's insults. She is able to let things go. Her character flaws are that she is lazy and childish, but she still gets things done. She knows her limitations and is fully aware that her strong suit lies in cooking and design and maybe some business skills only. She knows some self-defense,... more>> but she's not a fighter and knows it's better to run for her life. Likewise, she doesn't know miscellaneous things like music. She practices calligraphy every day to become decent at that. She works hard and is lucky thanks to her hard work, but she's not a Mary Sue.

I've really enjoyed seeing her overpower everyone with her food, despite being the underdog.

I'm not interested in romance, so I hope it doesn't bog down the story too much when it appears. Considering how much fun it's been so far, I'm optimistic about how it continues.

UPDATE: I used to like this series, and then chapter 404 happened.

The MC barely escapes with her life while the ML, who is her husband in name only and doesn't have a romantic relationship with the MC, strips her and gropes her chest so hard, he leaves bruises. She wake up after fighting for her life with someone attempting to rape her. He shows no consideration, self-control, or common decency whatsoever.

I am disgusted. I cannot like the ML anymore, and I want him dead even more than the villain. How can you have a relationship with someone who blatantly violates your trust? I am strongly considering dropping this series. <<less

Not a bad story but not great either. The pacing is really slow in my opinion. I've tried to read a head in the raws and not much is happening.

I do like how her power is food but I hate how she allows some stupid misunderstandings to happen. She has no problem proving herself but she just can't tell the other guy to stop... she seriously just stands there and says nothing.

I really stay around to see how she impresses with food. As the restaurant and romance isn't anywhere to... more>> be seen yet.

Overall not a waste of time but not worth all the 5 stars. <<less

One of the main reasons why I enjoy the novel is because the characters Chu Lian (MC) and Changdi (ML) have strong personalities. The MC shows how independent she can be, her world doesn't fall apart just because she doesn't have a man by her side. While for the ML, it's understandable why he acts the way he does due to misunderstandings. This leads to a slow paced romance, but for this novel it fits in perfectly with the plot. I can't wait to see when the ML finally becomes... more>> sweeter to the MC.

As someone who absolutely loves to eat, the numerous amounts of food MC makes causes me to crave frequently. I feel eager to read more about what types of food she would prepare, the way the food gets describe I can imagine myself as one of the side characters drooling by her side.


Her friendship with Princess Duanjia is very adorable. In the world, there aren't many that the MC can truly call a friend, so having such a person by her side is a wonderful thing.

It's a bit slow compared to other novels, but I think the story is good so far. I love how the MC conquers everyone and everything with her food. At first, when the plot had stuff about food, I thought it was weird and out of place. But now I LOVE the chapters where they mention her cooking because it's interesting to see how everyone falls in love with it and how she can make the circumstances change. I also think that the food has a comedic aspect to it... more>> since everyone who eats it instantly becomes a foodie. I also enjoy reading the comments at the end of the chapter by other readers, asking for more food chapters. <<less

This novel is good! The main protagonist is carefree and just want a peaceful life while eating delicious food. She doesn't have the attitude that most main protagonist in a Chinese novel has, which is thinking all about revenge.


And its quite hilarious to see Chu Lian's servants reaction every time Chu Lian cooks.

I would prefer to give this novel a 4.5/5 if such were possible. The concept is unique, the characters are enjoyable, and the pacing is steady. My only problem thus far is the distinct lack of romance after 90 chapters, but the comedic misunderstandings between the MC and male lead make for an enjoyable read none the less. I'm looking forward to reading what happens next.

I intend to update this review in another 90 chapters or so.

I give this novel 5 stars because I had fun reading it... The interaction between the Female lead and Male lead is really funny at first then very sweet later on... At first you will be disappointed with the Male lead cuz he was angry with the Female lead because of what happened in his past life... But after He realized that The Female lead is different from his 1st life and how she is very good to him... He will treat her like a Queen... I love how the... more>> Male lead gets very possessive of her that he even gets jealous with her female friends.. lol I recomend this novel. :) <<less

You can follow the logic of characters but it doesn't reduce the frustration you would probably feel towards the ML, because the author did such a good job to help you emphasize with MC

Initially, the characters are so frustrating since they keep having misunderstandings towards the other (mainly the male) however, that's all going to be gone later in the novel (I just know, it's that feeling).

Anyway, the main part is... there's just a good amount of food talk in there *drooling* seriously, it's so good :D

... more>>

It's actually really funny when the husband actually tries some of the wanton breakfast meal she makes (or directed her maids to make since they won't let her make it herself) and ends up eating more than half of her breakfast. It's funny because she made that for herself and not for him to eat lol


I just feel that this is going to be a really cute story later on :D <<less

At chapter 40:

not enough chapters to determine whether this is one hell of a good novel or just so-so. But kudos for the unique plot. Just a little bit miffed that the MC is too soft. The ML is also hateful but I guess I can understand why that is. In the future, I want to see him grovel. A lot. Also, amazing translation team!! Thanks for giving us a new novel to read.

At ch190, the story is a bit bland. It feels like everyobe is after the MC.... more>> And though she fights back, the anger that you felt because of the villains will be amplified because of the MC. She sucks at fighting back. Plus after having spent some time in this world/time, she doesn't understand the value of her recipes. Seriously, its frustrating to see her being taken advantage of. <<less

It's very brand new. I've never read a novel that had the same concept as this, so when I saw the title, my interest was greatly piqued. The female lead is a foodie. She doesn't care about the ML, but she also doesn't hate him. The interactions between the MC and the ML can be hilarious sometimes. Though I'm waiting for the ML to open up to the MC, but that's probably going to take a while because of the things in the past. If you're interested in foodies, misunderstandings,... more>> and a bit of drama, then this novel would be quite enjoyable for you. <<less

Honestly, after this, I will probably dislike every other similar book.

The male lead is very tsundere, and honestly shows realistic behaviour if such thing DID happen to you. He has very high IQ with very low EQ. So beware, he is sometimes forceful.

The female lead, I have to say, a bit Mary Sue, I mean come on, does this woman managed to be pro in every economical aspect in modern world? Other than that, she was fine, she didnt provoke pity for me, however I did found some of her... more>> behaviours believable, her EQ is quite low too however, not as much as ML (no one can beat him in that aspect lol)

If you like seeing bunch of food, a bit violent ML, extremely a lot usage of "almost eyes" and "noises made with lips during sleep, or eating", I hated that last lip part honestly.

For pros, the translator is already a group I read, they are very good, the story itself is fast-paced enough, but not too much. Ending is but abrupt, otherwise, if you like Passive Aggressive ML and Transmigration stories, you would probably like this. <<less

This novel was ok. Since anything else I say here would be somewhat spoiler-ish, I'll throw the rest in a spoiler.

... more>>


Story happens in a fictional dynasty in a book that the main character was reading. Apparently, in this dynasty, food culture is rather poorly-developed. Lo and behold, the protagonist turns out to be a modern foodie who knows tons of recipes and cooking techniques. If it wasn't for the relationship drama, I would say that this novel's genre should have been 'Shoujo' rather than 'Josei'.


Not a lot of plot development, most of the story was about food, and using said food to make all kinds of political and business contacts. It did have a nice mystery theme with regards to Chu Lian's body's hidden identity, though.


Nice character personalities with decent character development. It nicely portrayed a vengeful and emotionally-injured male lead overcoming his suspicions of his wife in this life, due to "her" actions in his previous one. Then there's the gluttonous, kitten-like Chu Lian, who just wants to be a like a hibernating bear and alternate between eating and sleeping. She gets dragged into the political arena due to a stalkerish childhood sweetheart who won't let go and her excellent cooking skills.


Plenty of funny scenes in the novel, whether it be the ML's paranoid overthinking of Chu Lian's actions, the face-slapping of "secret recipe" owners, when their recipes don't match up, or just the sheer hilarity of all of the stoic, stern officials fighting over food.

I give this a 4. Overall beginning 340 chapters were pretty interesting. Overall since this is complete I'd say give it a shot and read until bored.

The plot feels both slow and rushed at the same time. You get like 670 slice of life chapters, first 300 of those are interesting because there's still stuff at stake, other are less interesting. And like 3o chapters where author jams like all the plot into.

I recommend it, though I'm not satisfied with some of the stuff. I like the translation.

It was really a good read, I didn't skip even one chap (for once)...


I had to endure the ML at the start because he was bad, even though it wasn't his fault, and the only thing I took really bad was the 360° change between the female lead and the grandmother in law;


Also the ending was a bit bland it wasn't really satisfying but overall it was a pretty good read!
