4.75/5!!! [Transmigration, Historical Fantasy (Primitive Era), SYSTEM ADMISTRATOR (of a sort)] Whew, this was a novel that I stayed away from for the longest time. The slow development from the initial chaos and depravity means that the beginning of the novel makes a lot of readers feel like this story is just wrong. At least, morally? I personally didn't mind it, but I was forwarned. To make sure that anyone who finds my review can start from the same starting point, I can say that you should pay attention to the Content Warnings provided by the author and translators, as well as the tags here on NovelUpdates! Aside from that... the story is wild, if... more>>

4.65/5!!! [Second Chance, Apocalypse: Natural Disasters, Magical Space, Slice of Life, Mature] Very different from a lot of the CN Apocalypse Novels out there, but I ended up liking it a lot! Admittedly, it gets a bit boring sometimes. The author has a tendency to dump information, making me tempted to drop the novel several times. BUT, I'm glad I persisted until the end (EXTRAS included, even!) I'm the type of reader that enjoys details, and there's no denying that this author is really good at delivering that. Furthermore, the survival aspect in this novel is really entertaining. The MC and ML have a space, so one can say that they're a bit passive (the... more>>

4.6/5!!! [Cultivation, Weak-to-Strong, Fantasy, Adventure] MC transmigrates into the body of a temporary disciple of the Tianxin Sect. The original owner was a Mage with poor soul foundations and was expected to not last very long in the Sect. Luckily for the MC, his foundations are much better than the original owner's! And, even more fortunate, he also ends up being the owner of a golden finger -- a magical dimension with a spiritual spring and farmable land capable of cultivating magical herbs that are useful for his growth as a Mage. Of course, one must also not forget the ML. The ML is definitely more of a villain at first, especially as he takes... more>>

4.59/5!!! [E-Sports, Gaming, Slice of Life, Comedy] Since this was so highly rated, I decided to give it a shot! It's definitely not what I was expecting, but I ended up liking it a lot~ The basic premise is that the MC (Wei Xiao), who is a professional accompanying player (someone who gets paid to accompany others to play a game), ends up being schemed to join a professional E-Sports team by the ML (Lu Feng). There's a previous history at work here, so things aren't as simple as they seem. The MC had initially been slated to join the team two years ago, but had ended up running off for some mysterious reason. This... more>>

4.5/5!!! [Zombie Apocalypse, Supernatural, Action, Adventure] (Update: 12/03/2022) Finally got a chance to reread! This time, I read it till the end after purchasing all the VIP novels from JJWXC and making an MTL copy (ooof that took me quite a while TxT). [FYI: For those who are wondering what changed between the original copy and the revised copy, most of the changes occurred in between chapters 110-180, I think. But, the changes were mostly cosmetic. Like, making the characters fit better and straightening out the worldbuilding and such to have a more coherent development. When it comes to the big things, not much has changed, but since the MTL of the original copy is... more>>

4.5/5!!! [Transmigration, Poor-to-Rich, Historical: Ancient China, Slice of Life, Drama] I avoided this novel for the longest time because the MC in the summary sounded very pretentious. Don't be misled though! That's far from the truth. It's true that the MC did care that he had transmigrated into the second wife of a disfigured man with two children. However, that doesn't change the fact that he treated them more kindly than the ML's original family from the very beginning. So, yeah!... more>>

4.25/5!!! [SYSTEM, World-Hopping, Time-Travel] This novel is surprisingly... deep? If you've read the author's other works, you'll know what I mean. It's oddly purposeful. The author packs a lot of content in a bite-size novel (in my eyes, at least). Most of it is in explaining the world and the people living in said world. For a world-building addict like myself, this was just perfect XD! In terms of plot and conflicts, this novel can't be said to be very good. At least, it's not very exciting. There isn't much tension either. But the author has a way with their words, making you sink deeper and deeper into their world. Here, there are multiple worlds... more>>

4.25/5!!! [Transmigration, Historical, Kingdom-building] This is Kingdom-building at its truest form lolol! In the early chapters, the TL-er makes a comment somewhere and says that this isn't really a dark work. But I disagree, it's quite dark -- at least, when compared to other Shounen Ai novels. In any case, it's set in the Yuan Dynasty, and follows history pretty closely (I imagine, I actually know nothing about Ancient Chinese History). The MC transmigrates into a young 14yo boy who had been sent away because the country was experiencing upheaval (the Emperor was inept and the people under him were all anxious to rebel). Taking advantage of this perilous time, the MC slowly makes a... more>>

Not knowing what else to do, the MC can only trudge along and make a space for himself in this advanced world where Mechas are the BIG thing. Along the way, he runs into the ML and ends up being dragged into a s*ave contract with him before he even makes it to the school that the MC’s ‘family’ forced him to attend. Lucky for him tho, he got a side kick in the form of a plush t-rex LOLOL.... more>>

4/5!!! [Rebirth, Cultivation, Poor-to-Rich] This is quite a fun level-up/poor-to-rich novel! I didn't know it existed until now so I was pretty surprised. It kind of has the vibe of "I Have Medicine" and "Legendary Master's Wife" but mainly in that the characters constantly work their way up the cultivation ladder with golden fingers that shock the world. The unique aspect here is that the MC and ML start off in the human world -- Modern Day China -- where the resources couldn't be anymore baren. I think that the story was best during this arc but that could be because my comprehension dropped a bit after the TL was dropped.... more>>

3.93/5!!! [Transmigration, Comedy, Modern Day, Business Management] Simple and sweet modern-day romance. First things first! The summary is very misleading. I initially avoided this novel because, based on the summary, it seems like one of those novels where the couple inexplicably breaks up in the middle because of some contrived reason... only to get back together at the last moment to dish out dog food to all the singles lmfao. BUT in fact, it's not! The tone of the novel is lighter than the summary would imply. To be more specific...... more>>

3.87/5!!! [Transmigration, Historical, Farming, Poor-to-Rich, Slice of Life, Magical Space] (Updated: 01/31/2023) The first time I read this, I didn't read it till completion. Mostly because I wasn't really interested in the 4th arc (which gave up on the poor-to-rich, business management, etc. aspect in favor of political intrigue.) This time around, I read till the end, but to put it bluntly, I still think the first 3 arcs are the best since the rest is pretty much just self-indulgent slice-of-life affairs.... more>>

With Transmigration and System Administrator/Game Elements! The MC, Xiao Mu, transmigrates into an interstellar world with a SYSTEM in his head. This world is one where there are three types of people: ordinary people, Sentinels (who have heightened senses and enhanced physical strength), and Guides (who have the ability to support one's spiritual health and, later, create medicines helpful for all sorts of things.) The MC transmigrates as a Guide with a veritable golden finger, one that allows him to create god-tier medicine that can help Sentinels with their spiritual energy deficiencies. In the meantime, he consistently encounters a... more>>

3.85/5!!! [Transmigration, Historical: Hong Kong, Martial Arts, Mafia] I thought this would be mainly a poor-to-rich novel, but it ended up being more plot-driven (political intrigue and such). Anyway, I thought it was a pretty fun read, regardless. The characters are very likable and the premise quite interesting. There are plenty of novels set during the Chinese Reform Era but not many are specifically set in Hong Kong. Here, the MC and ML live in the slums of Hong Kong, striving to survive day to day through various means. The MC was originally a transmigrator who found himself in the body of the sickly childhood best friend of the villain in the novel (the ML).... more>>

3.85/5!!! [Second Chance, Zombie Apocalypse, Cultivation] I decided to reread the first CN novels I read, just for the fun of it~ The memory of this novel had faded enough that I was able to read it almost till the end (ch. 250). It's about the same as I said in my old review. Not bad at all, and one of the better CN Apocalypse Novels. Though one can say that that description is a bit iffy. It's more like a mix of cultivation and apocalypse. Zombies end up not featuring all that much in the end. Much of the plot is taken up by intrigue between bases, drama with the other 'abnormal characters', and... more>>

3.85/5!!! [Zombie Apocalypse, Hoarding, Survival, Intrigue] (2nd reread, 03/13/2022): If this novel hadn't been one of the first Zombie Apocalypse Danmei novels that I read, I might not like it as much as I do. It has quite a few flaws (let's not talk about the rushed ending), both in terms of characterization and plot development. HOWEVER, there's no denying that it's very entertaining. Just for the sole fact that the novel starts of as 100% hoarding satisfies my inner hoarder quite a bit LMFAO (no, seriously, 25% of the written text is spent before the apocalypse begins -- which makes sense, as the MC is reborn a year beforehand.) Anyway, I think the novel is... more>>

    Hiii, I love your reviews, they are all so clear and really makes me want to read all those web novels because you detailed a lot of what I love to read! Poor-to-rich stories mainly haha I've been scrolling through all your lists and adding so many reccomendations to my to-read list. If you see my To Read list in novelupdates, a lot of them I have copied you comments onto there to remind myself why I wanted to read them hahaha XD 

    I was wondering if you can create a list of all the web novels you've read ranked by your rating with your overall comments there? I wish I could go to your reviews tab and just sort by rating but novelupdates isn't that user friendly XP Shameless plug but I've created a list of all stories I've read ranked by rating + my reviews so other people can see all the stories I like in mostly one screen haha
