Quick CNovel Reviews #9

So…long time no post. In case you don’t know yet, jjwxc (where a lot of cnovels are) announced earlier this year that they are planning for an international version. Which is good and all, except that their ambiguous terms for proposed translations kinda sent fan translators into a flurry. So now many fan translations are either locked or deleted.

For my past cnovel recommendations, I only picked those with existing English translations, since I know not everyone can read in the original language. But with the current situation, it will be difficult for me to stick to that. In fact, I need to edit my old posts but I’ve been procrastinating on that. Ehh, anyway for this time, I decided to recommend cnovels without any English translations. Sorry, but you have to put up with my poor summary skills and translations. Please don’t use my translations for anything, it was really rushed with little proofreading. ;;;

Back with more cnovel recommendations! I’ve discovered more favourites recently~ But I want to prioritise those titles which seem lesser-known (?)  among English readers. As mentioned, I always make sure to finish reading what I started. I usually read the original Mandarin Chinese version, besides some exceptions.

Back with more cnovel recommendations. During this long “break”, I discovered quite a few titles which have now ended up as my favourites (I chose two of them for this post). 😀

As mentioned, I make it a point to finish once I start reading so if the English translations aren’t complete, I read the original Mandarin Chinese version.

I’m a bit sad that my reading speed is slow these days due to my hectic work. But I realised that I still do have titles I can recommend from my list of complete reads, so here’s another post of quick cnovel reviews. This time again, the selection is pretty varied so hopefully you’ll find something that interests you!

As mentioned, I make it a point to finish once I start reading so if the English translations aren’t complete, I read the original Mandarin Chinese version.

More quick cnovel reviews! The 5 novels in this post are all on the heavier end of the scale, so you may want to steel yourself first. Don’t pick them up unless you are ready for pain. But rest assured, the final end is a happy end.

As mentioned, I make it a point to finish once I start reading so if the English translations aren’t complete, I read the original Mandarin Chinese version.

Quick CNovel Reviews #1

Since I’m rather deep in cnovel hell, I thought that I might as well do quick reviews of what I’ve read. My stand is that you need to be in the right mood to enjoy the different range of novels, and I always try to find something in it to enjoy. For example if you’re in the mood for something light-hearted, no matter how good it is, you won’t appreciate a plot-heavy story with heavy themes. So I don’t give ratings, just my thoughts on what I find enjoyable!

I read mostly male x male romance (since that’s the majority of what my good friend recommends to me…), but I also read female x male romance. Not all the novels I read are romance-focused though. And I make it a point to finish once I start reading so if the English translations aren’t complete, I read the original Mandarin Chinese version. I’ll review 5 novels at one time. Since this is the first post, most of the cnovels in this post are my personal favourites!
