"The best way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."
If I was the female lead, I’d die from high blood pressure and unreleased stress. I would also die from depression and more.
Hm... The FL is strong-willed, but her emotions make her do many willful actions that she regrets or evidently, turns awry. I do like strong FLs, but I mostly like the ones that run on their brains. The ones that use their irrational responses more so than their rational responses are not really up my alley since I kind of cringe at them. I do agree that I can feel her anger and heartache though. I think the author did great at conveying them to us,
Is it cliche? I do not know. This question is mostly up to how you interpret the plot of the story. However, I do think that this novel does really well at questioning both sides of the story. Who is on the moral side of the story? The female lead or her enemies? For example, enraged at how Qin Yun had forced her mother to kneel with a sign in front of the Jiang Company, she pulled the lady out of the car with the intention to commit homicide. However, in her weakness, Qin Yun was saved by the Jiang father and daughter while she was sent tumbling towards an arriving sedan. In order to save her daughter, mother of FL runs and pushes her daughter out of the way. Soon after, she dies in the hospital. Now, the question is: Who truly caused the death of her mother? Was it FL? Or was it the Jiang family? In essence, both are partly at fault. However, one side has pride and ego that they can never forego, while one side is trying to remove the trauma from herself. None can admit to the mistakes they have made or that they are being too self-upright. To be honest, this is not my favorite type of novel to read, but I was bored and needed to do the daily 15 minutes, so I chose this novel upon seeing the super sweet synopsis. Though, I should have expected the tragedy when I could feel the dominating tone of the ML from the synopsis. Sure, FL and ML get a happy ending and lots of slapping scenes will happen. FL will eventually become happier and move on from her painful past with the help of ML, however, we all know that it will not happen until they begin to gather trust with each other since their relationship is purely based on physical emotions. Their emotional attachment to each other is almost nonexistent, so I can predict that there will definitely be an arc where the author will test their love for each other. In all, this is a good novel if this is the type of stuff you like. However, since this is not my cup of tea, I will be dropping this novel. If one day I find out that this novel is completely updated though, I might return since I like reading completed works. (I have a habit of liking the novels more when I read the ending before the start. Do not judge.)
There is a small tiny amount if error with the translations, but I will still guve it 4 stars. The world content is also good and detailed. The author did a great job at letting us the readers know the period/age/era. However, the years seem to be mixed up? Well, anyhow, this is a good romance novel. This is a super good novel for redemption. Some people might hate the female lead because it states that she did not know about ML’s love for her, but I think that the reincarnation js a great way for her to redeem herself for the all the idiotic mistakes she made due to the constant lies she was fed by her friends and belief.
A little OP? A little too cold? Wordless? Well, this type of FL is just up my alley! Honestly, the ML may just confuse you at the beginning. Like... Is he going to be ML or SML? Lol This novel has just the right amount of romance, comedy, but most of all, mystery. Truly gets my heart pounding wanting to know all the things behind the scenes that have yet to be revealed.
In all honesty, lots of people may be turned off by the overpowered FL, but I like it. Since I have always been a weak person and am pretty limited in my actions due to my size, I can only read novels to satisfy the vanity in me. Also, I love FL. I have always been a fan of cold, stoic, and aloof FLs and this perfectly satisfied me. The ML is also pretty awesome, but it is too bad that FL overshadows him for me. I think I have gotten too used to strong MLs, so I give more attention to the FLs now even though that is what I mainly read almost every day.
Honestly, any people would also wish to be surrounded by handsome men or want a harem, but here I am thinking that it is much better to have just one person for life. Seriously, I have a question. Just how do you maintain the atmosphere in a harem? I feel that the moment there are affections that need to be shared between more than two people, it just shatters the peace and calmness in the world.
