I would like to thank all readers for their warm encouragement and support! The summary for chapter 7 will be out by this week and I'm so excited to finally start on the translations proper. I will be following the breaks in the chapters as per the version I'm following - so you will get chapter 8.1, etc - the updates will be shorter but much more frequent.
The most popular entry on my blog is without a doubt, the Chapter 18 translations of the Pillow Book. Haha. I just wanted to say thank you, and also that at a later stage I will be doing a full review and some translations of the later chapters to wrap up that saga of the fight. But, these may not be full translations and as I earlier said, I am not going to do the Pillow Book as a translation project.
I've been asked a few times - why have I not written reviews for my 5 star novels? Basically, these novels are so good and so close to my heart that I fear I cannot do them justice. Also, for the 4-4.5 star novels, it's much easier to pick out the scene that made me love the novel. But, for the 5 star novels, I love everything. I am going to write proper reviews for them, but they will be in gestation for a long while, because I plan to do quite a few scene translations for them, and even one novel is a prospective future translation project (haha). For Three Thousand Crows Killing, I am definitely writing a review, and I plan to translate the entire epilogue... which is really long, because it's basically the novel in the male lead perspective. Some readers have commented that the novel should have started with the epilogue because you only get hints from the novel of why the male lead loves the female lead so much. The epilogue is one of my most favourite epilogues - basically like Ye Hua's epilogue for 3L3W but 10 times better.
So, lots of things in the works, but I'm prioritising Heavy Sweetness Ash-Like Frost.
If you have good recommendations of c-novels (ancient or modern), please do leave a comment and share! If you have translation requests - small ones, like specific scenes etc, feel free to leave or email a request as well. I can't promise I will translate it, but I will definitely read it and consider. <3
