    so the very first BL novel I've read was The Founder of Diabolism and ohhh god I was extremely satisfied AND it was actually the first novel I've ever read. I was watching it's anime and when I take a look at comments I learned that it was actually a novel. I'm so glad that I was curious and search for it... so what is the first BL novel you've ever read?

    Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. World-hopping is a genre that’s difficult to make meaningful imo, but this novel is at least good among its own genre. But Mo Dao Zu Shi is good overall regardless of genre

    Thinking of deer fei fei
    I actually started reading this one without knowing this is BL (as at that time I didn’t know the meaning of shounen ai:blobtongue:). But I really liked the story. So, since then I stopped excluding the BL tags.
    If you count side stories, then the side couple in good morning miss undercover will be my first. But I didn’t feel anything different with these as the shou in them was pretty easy to imagine as female(might be my thinking).

    I Just Want to Be in a Relationship. I read a lot of BL comics so I decided to try reading a BL novel too. The novel turned out to be really sweet and was better than my expectations ♡ After that I was pretty much hooked me into reading BL novels one after the other.

    Heaven Official's Blessing. I was both depressed and happy after reading this novel. Cried buckets.

    Rebirth of a Movie Star

    A nice modern gem with a fairly mature protagonist and ML, a rare find lol but it was enough for me to get into the genre for some light reading.

    I think the second novel I've read was this one ( but I'm not so sure )

    The first one I finished was Scum Villain's Self-Saving System. It was a shorter and decent read, and I definitely had a fair share of laugh out loud moments while reading the novel.

    I've read a lot of slash fanfictions before, but in terms of original work it would be The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System
    Wasn't even aware that it was BL :ROFLMAO: I randomly clicked on a link to the donghua when it was airing, so got impatient and read the novel instead
    If it wasn't for the fact that I never read the summary/reviews, it wouldn't be a kind of novel I'd consciously pick up. The teacher-student romance thing seemed debatable, on one side it felt disturbing and unethical but it was an enjoyable read, I was reluctant to drop it. In the end it's my main fandom at the moment and even have wrote a few fics for it, though I still don't really ship the main pairing

    Feng Yu Jiu Tian on Sooky’s site.
