A beautiful girl falls for beautiful guy, or the other way around, both so devastingly beautiful they defy the heavens! One is bold, fearless, and will get back at those who hurt her by tenfold! The other is a cold heartless quiet handsome prince who would abandon everything for the one he loves.....sounding familiar? Because it is a typical cliche romance. Pretty interesting the first time...not so much the 100th time. Or maybe not a romance, but a reincarnation? Losers become top players? Some harem here and there? Love at first sight? Uhhhhhh A true hidden gem is one that entertains but educates, a novel that answer the plot holes. A story without a happy ending because that is what life really is. A story where side characters are not to elevate the main characters. A story so realistic or different that it offers a fresh taste of spiciness, sweetness, or bitterness to the story that reminds you why reading is so beautiful! "Life is filled with challenges and hurdles, and your tolerance will decide your ability to withstand pressure." Quote in "Release that man". Story is modern and original and not every handsome guy that comes her way will end up falling in love with her. Teaches some very very good ideas on life. A little weird at first, but later you realize the storyline will leave you guessing all the way! "If you steal, then have the resolve to be stolen from. If you kill, then have the resolve to be killed, if you deceive, then have the resolve to be deceived." Quote from "Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage" One of the best rebirth vengeance stories. She remembers her pain in the past and does not easily fall in love due to past betrayal even after getting married. She never forgot her children of the past. Her rebirth is explained. She is cunning, strong, and did not need a man to support or clean up her own mess. "Your actions and morals are not either right or wrong. They are either worth it or not worth it." Quote from "Crossing to the Future, it's Not Easy to Be a Man". Author literally created a whole world from the finest details of a traffic system in this world to the big mecha fights. A female mc who hides identity for a GOOD reason, and the life and death struggles she got to become strong. Even so, she still admit that she is very fortunate that she had the assets instead of gloating about her own abilities. Her companions are those who got your backs, those who would literally die for you, those who are closer than family, but with a bond that are much more pure than that of a romantic relationship. You realize the cruelty of war. The excitement. The secrets. The action. The cunningness. It's all in one novel. May start off with a lot of info and a weird child AI, but it gets soooooo much better after you read all bulk of info about this new world in the first few chapters. Just appreciate the fact the author took TIME and EFFORT to create such details in a world. Sorry for the long rant, but these are examples of novels I am looking for, there are so many other novels like My Death Flags Show No Sign of Ending or Dominion's End, but not enough space to explain them all. I want something original, something refreshing and offering a new perspective. I included rants so you can check them out too! This is meant for everyone out there looking for something DIFFERENT. So have you ever found a novel that held your thoughts for days and weeks? That you stayed up all night to find what is next? One that after months you still can't forget it? Please share!
