One day, as usual, Annabelle remembered the memories of her previous life.

It was revealed that she has been reincarnated as the second most popular character in a novel.

She also did all kinds of bad things to the male lead, and in the end, she is the person who will end up in prison!

‘In the end, I’ll get caught. It’s crazy!’

Anabelle begins to save Ian from danger by intercepting the conspiracies that were laid out one by one to prevent her impending doom.

But in the process, she caught the attention of some unexpected people…

“Oh my, that’s the spirit of chivalry our family pursues! I like that a lot!”

Ian’s mother’s eyes began to sparkle at her.

“Would you like to be my partner to the opera?”

After saving Ian, the prince keeps flirting…

“Ian, I’ve decided to quit being your rival and live a new life.”

“A new life?”

“To stop paying attention to a man like you who’s always up and down, marry a man with no character, and live a normal life.”

“Who’s the opponent? And why am I up and down?”

The male lead, Ian, keeps obsessing over me for some reason.

“Why do you not talk harshly to me these days…? Do it again.”

Everyone just seems to be a little weird!

    Im relaxing from all other novels and I found this. Its refreshing that you dont need to work your brains out. The plot is quite good and I keep reading it. The author and translators notes are cute and also corresponds well with what the reader is thinking. Side stories is also well written. I commend the author by ending the novel this good. 5/5

    (Leaving a comment for MYSELF in case I stumble upon this story again) This is very cute and all, my kind of adventure story, the kilig is also a plus, but the romance side...meh, it gets annoying at some point and cringy, 2nd ML (he is a goody person but not enough to get my vote) and the emperor are so meddlesome coz they'll use u for ur own benefit. And the author's comments are okay, but it gets too much, PERSONALLY I just wanna read in my own and in silence, the notes are distracting. I skip the scenes with the 2nd ML coz I don't root for him anyway and its a little cringy. Annabelle has so much self pity and I understand, however I wanna read feel-good stories, the romance here makes it complicated, the others are all good tho. Anyway, Ian and Annabelle all the way, just get together already 😴

    It has the cliche of low eq fmc and cold hearted ml who first dislikes the villainous but starts liking her because her personality changes and starts thinking that the og villainous was actually misunderstood. But it is still good .

    Suddenly get mass updates, we get to the best part yet, there are no more chapters, we probably have to wait a few more months D: If you aren’t sure whether to read or not, if you have liked any villainess novel at all you will probably like this.

    Why's there still no update 🥲 it's been a month. . . what's going on? Was there an announcement I didn't know? 😭

  • Rein_Lockhart 1

    the name is from omniscient reader's viewpoint u can try reading it it's pretty good

  • KeishanMirra 1

    Ugh… women. And I say this as one… She basically says she wants someone EXACTLY LIKE HIM except NOT HIM, because if he would be interested in her, he would be weird and no longer the type of guy she is looking for. I feel for him, so hard right now.

      from her pov as someone whose read the novel her actions made him hate her and too an extent before this series started it wasn't really hate but disinterest. Her attempts to foil her brother's plans were to make him hate her less and put them at an amicable relationship not have him fall in love with her. He like all ML's are the FL's type but because the FL is the villainess they always want the ML to end up with the heroine and simply not kill them and the ML always falls in love with the FL for the reasons they would normally fall for the heroine. She believes he would be happiest with the heroine and she has no chance with him because he hated the original annabelle so he'd hate her as well cuz up until the start of the story she acted the same.
