Kate’s Chinese Novels List

Hi everyone, I enjoy reading chinese online novels, especially those which dramas or movies are adapted from to better understand the story. I am extremely interested in novels with ancient setting but my command of Chinese is not good enough for me to understand those stories. Hence, most of the novels I read are of modern setting.

    Definitely read Left Ear if you have the time! It’s not too hard a read in the sense that the author doesn’t use lots of descriptive,flowery words. It’s written simply yet the plot is quite fast paced because a lot of things happen. I read through the second book after I finished watching Left Ear and I think it really made me understand the story and the characters a whole lot better.
