Hai hai! Here we have my review for Chapters 1 to 5 because that is my standard for first impressions on a novel. Fair warning to everyone, the progress is slow in these chapters so it might not be your cup of tea. I will do another review for Chapter 6 to 10 in order to compare and give a more accurate opinion about the pacing. One thing I commend about the writer is the world-building and character introductions in these chapters. Nathalie is a lavish woman. She also knows what she wants and she won't compromise if it's really what she believes in--which is definitely something to admire. There's a trail of breadcrumbs for the readers to be immersed with curiosity about what is coming next. Nothing is a coincidence from what I have seen--despite how it's being played out as a normal day (with a little drama) in the life of Nathalie. As a writer, I am curious about what direction she's taking her novel into and how it will play out. Of course, I look forward to the part where she transmigrates into it. Hehe. I appreciate this background on her before the anticipated event so I can get to know her and see how much development there is in store. So kudos to author-sama for that! One criticism I have is the dialogues. It's not a major concern since the story will have fantasy elements but I currently don't find them natural with the modern urban setting in these chapters. Like I said, they are more appropriate for fantasy settings which is where the story is leading to. But I do think having a simple and straightforward type of dialogue in the modern setting is another way to distinguish the two types of worlds in the story.

Didn't you hear? It's all the rage.

The latter half of her utterance shattered the beaming face he had; he held a neutral look that accentuated his cheekbone and jawline. "A villainess perspective?" A deep hum came out from it as he rubbed his chin.
