It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Forgot I even had a word-press. xD I can’t believe I’m already in my 20’s too since I’ve created this blog. Time sure flies. 😢
It’s also been cold lately too, so I hope that I don’t catch a flu. Hope everyone continue’s to stay safe as well and wishing everyone an awesome bright day everyday! \(^-^)/
I’ve been interested in Chinese Novels lately. Especially ones with female leads as the main character, whom can kick-ass! Not gonna write a long post, but just wanted to advertise these novels for people who are interested in Chinese novels where the female lead has a brain and obviously no “harem” for the guys. These novels are mostly directed towards female readers, but male readers might find the action pretty interesting.
The current ones that I’m ready at the moment are: “A Mistaken Marriage Match: Record of Washed Grievances” and “Descent of the Phoenix: 13 Years Old Princess Consort“.
A Mistaken Marriage Match: Record of Washed Grievances
Author: Qian Lu
“She is intelligent, beautiful, calm, and professional. As the youngest chief forensic investigator for the past few years, her future was very bright. All of this, however, changed with a bizarre time-travel.
Her face was now destroyed. All right. But unexpectedly she was also a “gift” from a small kingdom! Her life deviated from the initial course. By her side would from time to time emerge bizarre and bewildering incidents. She makes painstaking investigations, unravels the layers of mysteries, pleads for justice on behalf of the living ones, and redresses injustices for the dead. There have been no vengeful spirits under her knife!
Just as everything has settled down, as she looked back, she was inwardly glad. One life, one world, two-people. Today’s mistaken marriage is only to be tied with you.”
Descent of the Phoenix
Author: Yi Shi Feng Liu
“The strongest female assassin from a special assassination force met her death one day on a mission. To her surprise, she woke up in the body of a 13 year old girl, Mu Rong Liu Yue. Through Liu Yue’s past memories, she found out that she was bullied due to the huge birthmark on her face, even though she came from a renowned family. Liu Yue was beaten to death by her own cousin, and that’s how she managed to enter Liu Yue’s battered body. The assassin then decided to live her life as Liu Yue and swore to avenge her death.”
My own short review of the two novels:
As you can see from the descriptions above, both novels are time-travel novels where the original body from the past has “died” and they’ve taken up the body of the dead person. I’ve only read up to chapter 9 for “A Mistaken Marriage Match: Record of Washed Grievances“, but I like the story so far. The female lead isn’t annoying and she stands her ground when needed and backs down when she knows it isn’t worth the risk, but she also ain’t a coward! I’m finding the interaction between the male lead and her to be pretty intense and funny so far. She’s in a pinch of how to get out of this “weird” and “unknown” place, but her morals to help honest people comes first before that. 😂 From the description of the male lead, I’m imagining a really handsome guy with long hair and a calm face that’s always smiling. So far I like where the story is heading and I won’t spoil much for people who haven’t read it yet. As for “Descent of the Phoenix“, I’ve read up to chapter 440. I’m in-love with the series! I can not contain my happiness when ever a new translated chapter is out! This female lead also has brains, but she also know’s how to physically fight on par with the male lead. Although the female lead in the other story can fight on par with the male lead, but mostly in brains(which you don’t really need to worry about her physical strength, since she’s got her ways to use her brains to outsmart those “high in power” *smirks*😏) She’s the ultimate female lead anyone can dream of in a story where the world is full of strong men with “chi energy”! She’s got guts to go against those who rule the country and even those with “high ranks”. She won’t let anyone take her man(which I love!) and doesn’t give a shit about what people think of her. She fights for what she wants and has a strong personality(which I also love!). Big warning though! This story has a lot of cliffhangers mid chapters and up, so it leaves you hanging on what will happen to the main characters. I wanna tell you more about the story, but I feel like I’m gonna give out big spoilers so gonna leave it at that.
Ahhh, this turned out longer than I thought. Sorry about that! ｍ（｡≧ _ ≦｡）ｍ
Anyways, have a great day/weekend/week/month/year everyone! 😄
