Chapters: 9 + epilogue

Summary from Novel Updates:

It is rumored that the Vice Minister of Ministry of Rites is pregnant.

The cause of this incident is this:

“This day is really dull.”

“Feeling bored?”

“It’s a bit tedious to get through the day.”

“Cong Qing, do you want children?”

“If I did, would the emperor be willing?”

And so a dark tide surged, causing an unexpected disaster, disturbing a pool of calm spring water—

“Are you crazy?”

“You recall, during the Autumn Hunt that one year, when you and I would meet at the prairie at night—I was already crazy for you then.”

Passion is bottomless and wild; love is deep and without regrets.

Don’t ask the world for everything, only seek the heart alone.

[Webnovel] Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home (国民老公带回家)

国民老公带回家 | Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home

Author: 叶非夜 | Ye Fei Ye

Site: https://www.webnovel.com/book/8360425206000005/Bringing-the-Nation’s-Husband-Home

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/bringing-the-nations-husband-home/

Chapters: 973

From Novel Updates:

Qiao Anhao and Lu Jinnian had secretly longed for each other for thirteen years, and now that there’s a possibility for them to be together, even though the circumstances may be unconventional, neither one can refuse their inner desires any longer.

 

Hurled into a false marriage, Qiao Anhao treads carefully towards the cold and reclusive Lu Jinnian, but after years of near-missed opportunities and deep misunderstandings, how could their last shot at love possibly run smooth?

 

“Nation Husband” is a Korean term awarded to a man who is perfect in the eyes of the public – an ideal husband.

Wow, this novel is just frustrating to the highest point.

I’ve read until the 100th chapter and I think I’m done with this series. I’m so done. At least for now. Before you get your pitchforks ready, hear me out.

Xu ZiYan has a little brother, and that little brother is gay. As an older brother, he has always felt a bit regretful.

 

One day he transmigrated into the inside of a novel and found himself with another chance to raise a younger brother.

 

Immediately rolling his sleeves up to prepare for battle, he planned to raise this little brother into an exceptionally good man! And a perfectly straight one!

 

Taking a lesson from his past experiences, he continuously perfected his training plans.

 

Clearly, he strangled any opportunities to turn his little brother bent in the cradle, yet why was it that the little brother he had used all his heart and blood to raise — was still a gay guy!!!

 

And he was a gay guy who made him his target!!!

 

Your father ain’t playing around anymore!

 

A body you can save, however a warped soul……how do you want him to save it?! What a godly problem!!!

 

Twisted black-belly younger brother X irritated wifey older brother.

I finally have the courage to start this loooong novel. Just letting you know that I’ve only read the first 52 chapters. So think of this as more of an impression than a complete review.

Let’s start!

[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

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.

[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 1

英勇赴死系统 / Heroic Death System

Author: 雪原幽灵 / Xue Yuan Specter

Translation:http://snowycodex.com/translations/novels/hds/

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/heroic-death-system/

Chapters: 275

From Novel Updates:

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

 

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending (forced) cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

 

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

 

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

 

It’s HE.

MTL-ing this fried my brain cells but it was worth it!

[Webnovel] Let Me Tease You – 3 reasons I loved this series

After re-reading this until the middle part for 3 times, I’ve managed to will myself to finish this! Finally!

Every time I’m nearing the climax, I always put this on hold. It’s not because it’s bad. But because I loved this novel so bad I didn’t want it to end.

Let Me Tease You

Let Me Tease You is from the same author of Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me so expect Ye Junchi (ML) to be on the same level of thirstiness as Xie Xi. But this is not a love-at-first-sight kind of attraction. It is more of a slow burn. And it’s one of the reasons why I loved this novel.

There are also other things that I loved in this series. So without further ado, let me share to you the things that I enjoyed while reading Let Me Tease You.

Updated posts: Scum Villain, MDZS, and TGCF

mxtx

I’ve caught up with Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s works! Woot!

I’m done reading the MTL and now, I’ve also caught up to the recently translated chapters of all three novels. That includes the extras as well. In case you’re wondering why I’m still following the translations, it’s because I feel like I’ve missed a lot of finer details (and names!) in MTL.

While SV was a little easier to read via MTL (mainly because I only have to read a couple more chapters before the end), MDZS and TGCF were downright difficult. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the names screwed me up every single time.

If you have the time or suffering from withdrawal symptoms like me, you could check out Yume-chan’s fan song translation posts. The songs are wonderful and the PVs… my gosh, the PVs! They are freaking amazing! Some videos are just… wow.

With that said, I’ve updated my posts with my after-thoughts. Check them out on the links below:
