BEST CHINESE BL NOVEL

BEST CHINESE BL NOVEL
I don't like abusive, dog-blood drama, and weak characterization. I don't like Imbalanced Couple where the Seme/Gong is too Overbearing. I don't like weak, femininized, Uninteresting/Lackluster Uke, or bratty/silly Shou whose IQ drop drastically when encountering the Gong.  

So these are a few novels with good plots, and mainly consist of interesting MC and good ML I strongly recommend. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NOVELS IN THIS LIST IS RANDOMLY LISTED WITHOUT FIXED RANKING, and also these are only novels that I HAVE READ. 
This list will randomly be updated if I find another worth noting novel.

well it's a must to have! While 90% the weak and femininized Shou/bottom are dominating the market, you can find a totally cool and masculine Shou here! Wei Wuxian was described as Godly handsome, admired by the girls, and envied by man (before his blackening reputation, lol). WWX is a good looking guy, with good personality, friendly, genius, talented, funny, all in all he is  extremely charming! If he were born in modern world, he is the ultimate PRINCE CHARMING! So, let's hate and envy Lan Wangji for acquiring this platinum quality Prince Charming to be his shou!!! LOL~... more>>

In some story, the hero is someone who is amazing, magnanimous, kind, brave, heroic, and super humble. But what if the hero was replaced with a game player? The mindset of game player: "Benefits first, always weigh pro and con in every situation, hoarding points, looting and hoarding every single item drops, and super cautious! If there's no benefits, then I don't care. If the event endangered my safety, then I'd rather escape. Heroic? Kind? Brave? What is that? Can it be eaten ?" Lmao~... more>>

      You can click on every title of those novels and you will be directed to the page in here, novelupdates, where the novel translation (done by fans) are posted. All of them are in English. 

      Though, if you're asking about an officially published or printed novel in English, then among all of those novels, only The Founder of Diabolism and Heaven Official Blessing that have been officially translated in English, and will be available in December 2021, while the rest...are not officially translated :)

    Hey I have found some good novels thanks to you, so I was thinking of leaving you a recommendation of my own that I think you will like: Global University Entrance Exam. Badass Shou x badass gong, strong couple, survival games and good plot. The dynamic of the couple is delicious. It's the type where you unravel mysteries little by little. The first few chapters can be a bit confusing but it's worth it!

    I think you should read First- class lawyer by Mu Su Li. You might like it since both leads are equals and there also some mystery.

    Looking through the description and the books listed, you might like All-Round Mid Laner. It's a transmigration and e-sports theme and ABO setting. Both MC and ML are mature and smart. Same author of Accidental Mark.

    You'd probably like the novel "undead". it's an apocalypse world with ABO mixed in and our MC, an omega is strong and badass! What's not to like. Both gong and shou are strong and intelligent not the typical omega that you might find in an omegaverse story. Plus the plot focuses more on the apocalyptic world with zombies and vaccine sh*t so it's like watching resident evil BUT resident evil zombie-theme in ABO setting

    Someone else has already recommended Heaven Official's Blessing/Tian Guan Ci Fu, which is by MXTX, just like your number one - Mo Dao Zu Shi.

    In that case, you might also like "The Scumvillain's Selfsaving System" - same author, transmigration novel.

    There's also a novel that I really enjoyed, that also deals with transmigration and a shizun and disciple relationship, and it's called "The Husky/Dumb Husky and his White Cat Shizun", also known as 2Ha or Erha.

    Sha Po Lang is supposed to be really good, btw, and heard good stuff about Thousand Autumns as well. The former has a drama airing this year, the latter is currently airing a donghua. SVSSS also has an airing donghua, btw.

      The strange this is, I have those novels listed out already in my reading list along with other worth-noting novel, but I just failed to find some time to read them? 

      Like, to read a masterpiece need a preparation for time and mood in my case, haha. Like, if I don't have the mood to read XianXia, and my mood was flaring on the direction of infinite flow horror, it's impossible to drag myself to read those XianXia masterpieces......really, that's what hinder me of reading the scattered masterpieces waiting in my reading list, sigh

    Thanks to you I found Golden Stage!!! I've read so many bl novels before, why this one has completly captured my heart the way it does still stupified me. I love it, every bits of it. It has enough balance between plot twist and romantic story of the two leads. And the characters? Just like what you mentioned above, only happens when the writer treats the characters right. I love everything about this novel. Just want to say thank you for this one treasure <3

      It's nice to hear it! Yeah, Golden stages is really that good, it's short and we don't have any extras, haha, but it's just that fulfilling. 

      Have a plesant read with other novels!
