a web novel is a cross between a manga and a novel. Contrary to novels, web novels are not published nor are they completed before you read them, and contrary to a manga, there are no pictures or dialogues. Like a novel, a web novel is entirely written, and like a manga, the author only uploads a portion of the story and updates the story on a set interval of time. Unlike a novel, there is no central plot for a web novel and is usually stretched out like a manga. Due to this, web novels usually consist of hundreds of (short) chapters. One web novel chapter is usually as long as one or two manga chapter, and one novel chapter is as long as around ten web novel chapters.

Web novels usually come from China, Japan or Korea. Therefore, it has to be translated by someone or a group for non-native speakers. For info on translated web novels, please go to this site https://www.novelupdates.com/

Some of my favorites (All romances): Top 3

All of these except for Heroic Death System has been completely or pretty much completely translated.

Modern Romances (BG)
1. My Darling - childhood friends turned lovers. So ML has been in love with FL for years and finally she agrees to be with him and she gradually falls in love with him. My favorite modern romance novel and one of my favorite novels of all time.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/my-darling/
2. Best To Have Met You- First love novel. Male lead had a crush on female lead when they were in high school but unfortunately he missed his chance and years later they met again and fell in love. Super adorable.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/best-to-have-met-you/
3. Reborn As My Love Rival's Wife- Romantic comedy. Basically what the title says. A guy gets reborn into the body of his love rival's wife (his fake wife) and they fall in love. Really cute and really funny. I loved the vulnerability of the male lead and the MC (protagonist) is so hilarious.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/reborn-as-my-love-rivals-wife/

Historical Chinese (BG)
1. To Be A Virtuous Wife - Really loved the FL. She's really smart. Everything in this novel felt so well done. A transmigration story.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/to-be-a-virtuous-wife/
2. Chongfei Manual - A rebirth story. I think the romance here was really adorable. It's not really a hard core revenge plot story. There is some but I think it's more focused on the romance plot.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/chongfei-manual/
3. Doomed To Be Cannon Fodder - transmigration story. MC transmigrates into a body of a cannon fodder in a novel she had read. Really funny. MC is adorable and so is ML.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/doomed-to-be-cannon-fodder/

BL
1. Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil - probably the most popular BL novel I've seen and it lives up to the hype. Super smart all around perfect MC. This is an arc novel so there's different storylines. Each one really interesting and the face slapping is just the best. So satisfying.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series/quickly-wear-the-face-of-the-devil/
2. Transmigration Into A Mob Character To Rehabilitate the Villain Plan - Such an amazing novel. The development of ML's feelings towards MC I really loved. As well as MC's care towards ML. I cried so much during this one scene. (Don't worry it's a HE). MC transmigrates into a novel and meets the protagonist and the villain (ML). Skips forward, ML falls in love with MC.
https://www.novelupdates.com/series...b-character-to-rehabilitate-the-villain-plan/
3. Heroic Death System - I loved the concept of this novel. So, MC has to pretty much become a martyr in each arc. Poor ML having to watch his lover die in each storyline. (
Don't worry he goes back to most of the arcs he died in.
The novel hasn't been completely translated but I MTL and the arcs were really good. It's a HE don't worry.

Title: Sha Po Lang (杀破狼)
Author: Priest
Origin: China
Genre: Historical/Steampunk


Just started a new BL web-novel, it's takes place in the Jiang Dynasty but the author added a steampunk vibe to the story with industrial technology readily available to the people within the novel, where the MC is a long lost prince. I'm finally done with the ten chapter prologue and up to the beginning of book 1, it looks great so far ~
