Armed with the memories of her disastrous first go-round, Violette is determined to live a quiet, unobtrusive life this time...but fate has something else in store!
Couldn’t put it down
I started reading this around 10 p.m, and didn’t put it down till 3 a.m.
It was probably the midnight sentimentality but Marin nearly made me cry. This book isn’t THAT emotional-I don’t think, but a few plot ideas really struck a chord with me. I can’t wait for the next volume to release!
Also, I saw some samples of the manga, and I fully agree that it seems the drawings are a lot more cute and lively than the serious tone that is brought out in writing. So if you want something more “lighthearted”, I’d recommend the manga.
Good but Confusing
Maybe I missed it, but I never found out about the crime that Violette committed. Maybe that is better so that we don’t dislike the character. I also agree with a previous reviewer that the names were confusing. Violette introduced herself to Marin and Marin still believed she was a boy. Claudia and Gia are princes… the names are distracting. However, I did want to see the story continue.
Basically all male characters have girl names
The story was good, if a bit generic. The only thing that really bothered me was the fact that the MLs had female names. Ones like “Claudia”, and “Gia”. It was confusing at points, because when a character would be referring to a prince, I kept picturing a princess. No idea if it’s a translation error or the author’s intention.
