Historical/xianxia/transmig that I actually liked
Stuff I haven't dropped yet or have read to completion or at least plan to finish reading. The good stuff. Mostly down to earth female protagonists (or love interests) you won't feel the need to strangle. Too much. 

Lots of strong women here, whether mentally or physically or... eventually haha. Some fluff, some serious, many both.

Mostly female MC, but might add some male MC stuff if it feels like it fits the theme of the list. 

No particular order.

Recs welcome: leave comment :) Or just to agree or disagree about my views on the novels. Discussion welcome :)

Atypical story where a lot of the action (the political side of it anyway) happens without the mc present so figuring out what really happened is a game of connect the dots. ... more>>

Takes like a 100 chapters (that I mostly skipped, tbh) to get interesting but once it does, it's really good. That's probably why so many people wonder why others think it's so good when for a good 80 chapters or so, kumo-can is just fighting monsters and leveling up. Just make sure to read all the side chapters about the prince and the hero etc... more>>
