"A cultivation story about how a declining sect is restored by a narcissist, a troublemaker, a meanie, an idiot and a wimpy kid." What an intro.
- On Liu Yao: The Revitalization of Fuyao Sect. Another Xianxia abyss that I'm glad I fell into. This novel is truly good stuff.

With the fact that I burnt half of my brain cells reading Liu Yao: The Revitalization of Fuyao Sect, I've come to appreciate Priest's complex writing style and the overflowing amount of philosophy in her stories.

On a side note, I now start reading a new novel every 2-3 weeks. It has become a habit. If I happen to chance upon a good one, I'd like to recommend it to you all. I think I'd tag these posts as #my danmei journal and #danmei recommendations.
Hope you can find a novel that is to your liking too! ٩(^ᴗ^)۶
