    Tl;Dr:
    Would you mind posting novels that you thought were feces, only to be surprised that it's actually good.
    If you wanna post the reasons to why, place it under a spoiler.


    Have you ever checked the synopsis, tags, and genres of a novel and then judge instantly—"This novel is absolute feces; Never gonna read it!" ,
    Only to try reading it after a while or long time due to reasons?

    Then during or after reading it, you suddenly think to yourself, "Wow. Why haven't I read this in the past?!"

    Well, I expirienced something like that quite a lot, but this one novel is on a whole new level (In my opinion).

    The genres were so "blegh" and the tags made me avoid it like plague, but after a year or two, I finally read it.
    It was at chapter 50+ that I realised that this novel may be the best ones i've read; The novel's title is Pure Love ✕ Insult Complex .

    This novel is fairly popular, I think, in the genre of lewd novels, but this one is one of the special few. Don't really wanna say the reasons cause i'm too lazy.

    Skyfire Avenue.

    I read the synopsis. Thought it was garbage. Tried reading it when it was first being translated... thought it wasn't good. Then I came back after a few months and I fell in love with it.

    It is tied for 1st place of my favorite novels catalogued on this site.

    Really thought nothing of it then just gave it a bit more of a chance and the rest is history.

    I hate romance novels. I blame Nicholas Sparks. And my mother.

    Experimental Logs of the Crazy Lich
    The Beginning of the novel is quite the spoof style I generally wouldn't ahve read it but one I started and by the time I reached around chapter 65+ I understood the gem the novel was , u would start reading it expextiex a funny isekai story only to find the depth the author has put into the plot and characters and I don't mean just the MC but everyone. The story is beautiful and I am genuinely surprised it didn't get a paperback yet . Anyway it's not a hidden gem anymore because the recent chapters just brandish it's awesome story

    The Earth is Online, it's a pretty decent novel. The BL is soft until now so I don't think guys should have a problem with it either.

    I read that novel due to its initial premise of the sister in laws. I was prepared for a bad story. Surprisingly it was an okay one, even though the sister in laws became kinda out of focus later.
