My most favorite book at the moment. Unlike other rebirth books, this book doesn’t go back in time. It stays in the same time line. The female lead doesn’t know what will happen in the future. Although a bit long, 668 chapters, every chapters will keep you at the edge. There are so many obstacles to overcome that 668 chapters didn’t seem that long. What I like most about this book is the comedy. It may appear that this is a heart wrenching and serious book, but the comedy here is so funny. I can’t stop laughing just thinking of them. The romance is set at the beginning of the story. I felt a bit bad for the other male leads, since they never had a chance. All the male leads are so good that it was such a difficult choice to let her be happy with Ye Jun Qing. I really hoped that there were more Yao Mo Wan so everyone can be happy. I hope that someone can translate this amazing book. Rating 5/5
