My Thoughts


Review covers 14 chapters 

Do you believe in destiny or prophecies? What would you have done if a fortune-teller said that you will be happy only with an ugly man? I would have fought that destiny with all my might and hopefully like our main character would have succeeded. But let me start from the very beginning.

I both loved and hated this story. It’s short o, only 14 chapters long and to say the truth it would have been better if it was a bit longer, but well the author made a sequel and it is going live this Saturday in the mini review section. I loved the heroine – Mimi a lot. She was fantastic, her fight to change her destiny. The story ended not like any other shoujo romance and even though I might have been a bit disappointed I loved the realistic ending, but then again I believe because of either numerous complains the author wrote the sequel.

For me it was still a mystery if Mimi actually fell in love with her husband and if he did too. The answer lies in the sequel. But he was an interesting character. Quite calculating but at the same time fascinating. The story is an absolute let down on the romance part as we don’t even see a single kiss. And that wedding night, I seriously doubled over with laughter. Kids are coming from hugging. I would have really loved to see when Mimi’s face when their actual first night happened, but we only got to see when she’s already pregnant.

Another thing that I really wanted to see was the face of the young man in the very beginning of the story. It should have been something absolutely fabulous. But then again the story is very fast paced, has a good sense of humor and is very enjoyable to read. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below!
