The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

The Chinese bl novel “The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love” is one that I only discovered because the other novel that was translated on the side hadn’t that many chapters out yet. I loved it very much at the beginning and I still liked it at the ending even though I wasn’t that thrilled about it anymore.
It’s still a novel I’d recommend reading, though. There is an advantage to this novel, too: It is already completely translated so you can start reading right now. πŸ˜‰

Counterfeit Bride

It’s once more time to introduce a short novel to you: “Counterfeit Bride”. This is once again a completely translated novel with only 10 chapters so you can read it in a couple of hours. πŸ˜‰

 

What is “Counterfeit Bride” about?

The title of the novel is actually pretty straightforward: The novel tells the story of Shi Jie Yi a servant who is asked by his master to, well, replace her for her marriage because, well, she doesn’t want to go to some backwater place. After some persuasion, he actually agrees. His husband-to-be isn’t that thrilled about the marriage either and wants to test his new “bride” to see if she is even fit to marry him. But if the one he is testing isn’t the fragile miss he imagined but instead a servant and a man no less, then most likely this test will play out differently than expected. So will those two actually get to marry?

Help For Those Suffering From FOD-Withdrawal ;)

Who doesn’t know that feeling of having read a good book and not being able to find anything up to par after that? Or even worse: You’re reading a translation you really, really like and then you’ll have to wait a long time for the next update but just can’t forget about that story?

Well, it got me. 😭 It’s all thanks to Fengliu Shudai’s really amazing “Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil” that is just too good to find anything else to read.
I already reviewed the novel after reading the 14 arcs that are translated right now and what should I say? I read the whole thing once again and then read my favorite chapters two times over. πŸ™ˆ

Thank god there’s Novelupdates with the recommandations of similar novels. How could I use the time until chapter 15 better than with reading something else? πŸ˜‰
It was quite hard but I found some novels that are really similar to FOD (like, it’s the same concept of world hopping) and then somehow found some other novels and I’ve gotten another list of novels where I’m waiting for the next update πŸ˜…
And since I’m sure that lots of people love FOD just as much as me, I thought why not make a list with novels that could console me while waiting? πŸ˜‰
