    And please don't recommend Reverend Insanity, i read it for 600 Chapters, not really my taste.
    If you can recommend novels that i REALLY liked, that'd be great.

    Novel i liked as a whole: Invincible Dragon
    Novels i liked most parts of, some parts not so: Plundering Heavens, ISSTH, AWE, ATG, Heavenly Star, Tales of Demons and Gods, Strongest System, Valiant Life, LMS, Wife is Beauty CEO, Warlock of Magus World, Coiling Dragon, the first 100? or 200 chapters of the novels extra, same with Life Once Again.

    A good korea novel is also appreciated.

    Are you kidding me? IET's stories are all good and worth reading at least once for sure! Especially Coiling Dragon, Stellar Transformations and Desolate Era.

    Now I'm wondering if this post is a joke.

    The Deer and the Cauldron
    It's possibly the best book I've ever read. Not only that, but it's possibly the most influential as well. Just about all Chinese writers either have read this book or they know a lot about it, and you can see just how much everyone draws from it.

    All around, it's very funny and it features one of the earliest anti-hero protagonists in Chinese literature. It's full of memorable characters and the ideas it contains are just so classical. I do suggest that anyone trying out this book read a proper wuxia novel first to see what they're supposed to be like as it would add a lot of context to what's going on.

    Reading it right now, seems interesting. Kind of poetic.

    @Isaac20 how far have you read Throne of Magical Arcana? How does it compare to Deoslate Era, is it really good? How good is Desolate Era? Thanks!

    First I want to say don't compare the two.

    ToMA is from the author of the LotM. It's based on the science and magic theories. MC isn't an idiot and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty. Actually he's a chaotic nuetral type of mc. Compared to the others in terms of chinese western fantasy it's a pretty decent novel. But if you dislike stories where MC's main acclaim to power is through cheats, and not really hard work than this story isn't for you. Oh, I've to warn you that the ending is a bit weak. It was as if the author was in a hurry to finish the novel.

    Desolate Era is good in terms of world building and is really heavy on the Dao. It has an unpredictable storyline. But i must say that I didn't really enjoy the beginning, but it gets better when he gets a master and leaves his planet. Like all novels MC has plot armor to survive till the end as well as those clutch moments but I didn't mind those in this novel tho.
