Status: Completed

Chapters: 12

From Novel Updates:

When Lin Ran woke up, he found out that he has unfortunately transmigrated into the body of the Evil Cult Founder’s 18th little concubine. Even more unfortunate was his true identity is actually a guard (名捕/míng bǔ). He married the Founder in order to spy on him.

 

Idiotic protagonist could only ‘bite the bullet’ and be undercover. All sorts of bad luck, all sorts of incidents in ‘getting exposed’… however, he found out that this Founder’s attitude is very very strange…

I found this randomly and it’s very short so why not give it a try.

Word of advice before you start reading this novel: This is not supposed to be taken seriously.

Are we clear or are we clear? 😂

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/its-not-easy-being-your-love-rivals-big-brother/

Chapters: 60

Summary from Novel Updates:

The 27-year-old Wei Han is a slightly fat, slightly chicken-livered, and slightly foolish, pure-hearted and besotted top, and his sweetheart who had been together with him for seven years, in the end, was stolen away by Qi ZhiFan one morning.

 

Deeply broken-hearted and in despair, he went overboard with binge eating, and ended up pathetically choking to death…

 

Luckily, he received a second chance, yet his timing, position, and destiny all got warped, and the him who returned to being twenty followed his remarried mother into the Qi family, turning into Qi ZhiFan’s non-blood-related older brother.

 

Well, Wei Han swore that this time, he must alter his dumped-as-cannon-fodder fate, and since he’s become his love rival’s big bro, he can definitely torment this scumbag little brother to death, restoring his position as the rightful top and quickly carry his bottom home!

 

However, why is the development of the plot spiraling further and further out of his control?

 

Why is Qi ZhiFan looking at him with a scorching, burning gaze, acting more and more questionable ( ⊙ o ⊙ ) eh?!

 

Thus, Wei Han was pushed down into an official bottom…

In the search for another light and easy read, I decided to pick up this novel!

[Webnovel] Those Days of Saving the School Heartthrob (拯救校草的那些日子)

拯救校草的那些日子[重生] / Those Days of Saving the School Heartthrob [rebirth]

Author: 蒸蒸与上

Raws: http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=3423639

Translation: https://www.wattpad.com/story/181344795-those-days-of-saving-the-school-heartthrob

Chapters: 94

Summary edited from MTL-ed copy from JJWXC:

Ji Ming Yue thinks that his last life is pretty good, there is no reason for him to be born again. So when God let him restart his high school, it must be to rewrite the tragic fate of the school heartthrob and his crush Lin Feng!

 

In order to save his male god, Ji Ming is more and more skillful.

 

The first step, in order to prevent the school grass* grades from falling, volunteer to be his deskmate to supervise him

 

The second step, in order to prevent the school grass from being lonely, try to become friends with him

 

The third step, in order to prevent school grass’s bad relatives, help his sickly mother and invite the school grass to have a vacation at his home!

 

One step at a time, very nice!

 

As he was saving, suddenly one day…

 

Lin Feng looked down at him, his eyes clear: “Do you like me?”

 

Ji Mingyue: “No, no, no, no…”

 

Lin Feng: “I also like you.”

 

“…” Ji Ming changed his words. “No no no – I like you too!”

First, if you know a better translation of the summary, or if you know the author’s translated name, please do tell me.

About the school grass thing, Lin Feng is called 校草 (xiàocǎo) which according to this website means “most handsome boy in school.” So if you plan to MTL this afterward, you’ll either see school grass or school god and that pertains to Lin Feng.

Another thing, on MTL, Ji Mingyue’s name can also be Ji Ming. But for this post, I’ll be calling him Ji Mingyue or JMY. For Lin Feng, it’s LF.

Now that’s out of the way, I’m so happy to share this series with you! This webnovel is something I discovered while lurking around Novel Updates forum and it seems like a light read, the kind of read I needed at that time. The story’s not that long plus it’s set in the modern times so it gives me the courage to read through the MTL. (Psst, if you don’t know how to purchase from JJWXC, check out Anonfail’s guide.)

[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 2

In case you haven’t read yet, you may want to check out the previous post about Heroic Death System here where I talked about my general thoughts about the novel. Meanwhile, this post contains my thoughts about the individual worlds in the series.

Heroic Death System has 16 worlds (17 if you include the last known reincarnation cycle), 10 of which have redo arcs. Redo arcs have a chapter showing what happened once Shang Ke died and the rest is when he has a second chance to do the world.
