    Hmm let's see, okay then.

    Coiling dragon is probably the best 'first' cultivation novel to read because it has one of the most straightforward and least confusing cultivation stystems, its also translated extremely well and just saying, if u r truly dedicated to NU/NUF then this is a must read.
    According to either the creator or one of the first admins of NU(sorry I forget your username) this website was created on a whim because mangaupdates decided to no longer translate light novels which included his favourite light novel at the time Coiling dragon. He also said they started translating again so he got screwed over but you can just find all this information on the 1 year anniversary post he did.

    So considering Coiling Dragon created a wonderful website like NU/NUF it is definitely worth the read, not to mention there is 22 books of Linley the dragon boy.

    Hi all,
    I think the must read novel is Dragon-Marked War God
    Because it is on the run with 5 regular chapters per week. The best part of it is there will be two chapters bonus for this coming two weeks. Every enthusiastic readers are welcome to enjoy the novel and relax your mind. Action-packed, jokes and many more...
    Below is the novel site you can go to.

    I suggest "Praise The Orc", a Korean webnovel.

    In this novel the main character is an interesting ex soldier. While I heard one or two people calling him weak or annoying, in a way they have a point, he isn't someone who rapes innocent girls. He is rightous and manly. I love this character.

    The side characters are criticized to be bland as I have read in a review. Maybe yes, but I find them manly and funny. The humor is light. Blood flows and the scenery is descripted very vividly and beautifully.

    I don't know why, but I love the 135 chapters so far. Bul'tar!

    Within 135 chapters I can at least point out 5 major or minor arcs. It focuses on the ingame events but doesn't neglect the real life of the protagonist. Additionally little beautiful short stories are included.(what I mean is for example the rehabilitation of thugs, I felt like it was perfect)

    The author uses quotes from other novels and other languages which is interesting. The story feels fast paced and well developed

    Also, the author uses a way of narration that makes some moments mysterious. In the beginning for example a orc talks with somebody and the reader has no clue what's going on only to find the truth out later.

    Such mysteries keep the reading experience exciting and refreshing. It makes you want to pay attention to all the little details. And when you in the end find out why the characters did what they did, it is so rewarding

    Two English novel recommendations here, which are a good starting point because they're WNs while still being fluent and written in the native language:

    The Wandering Inn - an isekai story (but more like being summoned from another world rather than being reincarnated) about a young woman, an inn, and a world fuil of levels. LitRPG elements, duh. Decently lengthy chapters and updates twice a week.

    Mother of Learning - a high fantasy story about a young man who mysteriously gains the power to live through the same month of his life over and over again. Groundhogs Day in a fantasy world. Magic elements, very plot-heavy. Long chapters, but it only updates once a month...
