We all hate the greedy villains hell-bent on sabotage. Enter Carnelia Easter, the awful secondary villainess of the romance I’m reading, who trapped the prince in marriage at the behest of the evil empress.

I didn’t shed a tear when her head’s lopped off, but now I’m Carnelia! I gotta play this smart and convince him to divorce me instead! Still, between the prince, the empress, the heroine, the second prince, my terrible health... this story’s getting unpredictable. Will I survive after all?

started off somewhat interesting, thought it might explore subverting tropes a bit more, but after some initial conflicts get resolved it's nearly unbearable. pretty art, mostly.

Another Isekai

Ive been reading a lot of Manhwas under the category of Isekai lately and you will definitely see the resemblance of the plots.

The MC died got transferred to another world, met the prince, problem, then marry then end.

What sets apart this manhwa from the others is what the MC's predicament between the empress. No love triangles and no magic powers involved, not so complicated plot.

The new manhwa chapters are so nerve wrecking

I hope my cinnamon roll Ethan doesnt die. If that happens my heart is gonna break, big time! The cliff hanger is too painful.
and it keeps me wanting more.

I hope the chapters are updated weekly rather than monthly (im sorry if that sounds rude. Its ok if its just monthly as long as its updated)

Kudos to the illustrators, writers and ofcourse.. Our translators. 🌼

Beautiful art. It's a slow burn, with lots of fluff. It's not the greatest thing I've ever read but it's not bad either. The hard thing about waiting for new chapters is I forget the general plot of these manhwas and when I have to reread I tend to get bored, so to avoid that I'm just gonna put a recap under the spoiler tag. Lol. I don't want to drop this because it's really pretty but I can't be bothered to keep rereading it again.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the couple: FL pretends to be a pawn of the empress, but is actually helping the prince. The prince falls for FL because she's smart, kind, and helps him from being killed by the empress. He finally confessed but FL is still trying to figure out her feelings for him, although to the reader it's crystal clear she's in love with him too.

Side characters: original FL of the novel (who the prince was supposed to fall in love with and marry, became their ally and has something going on with the green haired noble that became one of the knights supporting the prince. Noah, the ML's half brother has a good relationship with the leads and does not want conflict

Main plot: empress wants to kill ML, is now suspicious of FL. Empress has brother who wants nothing but to make his sister happy, and did the "as you know bob" trope, outing himself to the leads that he killed the marquess to have control over his family (the parlams). Noah has a silver haired servant in cahoots with the empress' brother, who I think also wants the downfall of the emperor.

Also there are filler chapters(halloween, boutique, etc) that made me cringe and roll my eyes. Typing it out made me realize just how little I care about the plot.

Edit: too childish and I feel like it's becoming a chore now to continue. I'm sorry story but Imma have to drop you 🙁

Came for the political intrigue, but stayed for the fluffy, fashionable characters

The author definitely got the big picture down when it comes to the plot, but I don't think he/she has the skills to pull off the juicy dialogues that make the individual arcs exciting. Instead, this story feels more like an outline, not very fleshed out. Plot seemed forced, and arc resolutions appeared out of thin air deus ex machina style. The storytelling skills were just not there. I was not impressed with the script writing and character nuances...The first 6 chapters were pretty bad, but things pickup and get deeper plot-wise after that. Overall, I still binged it all in one go. Still would recommend if you are into the 2nd chance/isekai trope, but there are definitely better stories out there.

On the bright side, the art is so pretty and I'm in love with all the close attention paid to each characters' fashion choices. I think I am obsessed with the MC's dresses.The character designs are also so pretty. Everyone looks fire~! I also like how the MC develops throughout the series. I don't think she ever annoyed me!

Super childish

The story was interesting at first, but after the male lead returned from the war, it became extremely childish and filled with unnecessary fan service. There was a Halloween party, popularity contest, and even a whole chapter about them opening up a boutique and the male lead (an emperor-to-be) working as a waiter. All of these fillers just detract from the main story. Instead it's like they're in a school setting when they're supposed to be running a kingdom. I heard someone describe the characters and dialogue akin to Barbie dolls, and I wholeheartedly agree.

There's no denying that the art is beautiful but the dialogue...oof. It definitely needs some work. I'm not as engaged as I would be with some of the other mangas that I've been reading. It's very flat? IDK how to explain it. The dialogue seems so 1D...simple.

I am a big fan of isekai mangas/manhwas so when I saw this, I knew I had to read it. Unfortunately, my excitement stopped there.

Art: pretty but I've seen better. I feel the characters all have 1 stoic, uninterested look when they're not required to show obvious emotion. Although the use of colour is good, the lack in detail is what puts me off.

Characters: the characters are likable but a bit boring and predictable. The main issue with the story is our MC. She's lacking in intelligence and spunk even though she's reincarnated and should now be a woman in her 30s but doesn't act like one (for example, bringing up the topic IN FRONT of Cesar's knight and his brother Noah's servant about Noah asking to share a room when they were young SMH!). She's also naive. She tends to think that she can manipulate the story to the original plot even though she's changed the main events. After chapter 39, I've gotten tired of her bringing up the topic of divorce everytime she sees her husband, without properly consulting with him. As a main character, she's lacking in so many areas. I just pity Cesar. He's a typical unfavoured prince but is suddenly favoured due to his achievements in a war. He's also quiet and has a problem communicating with Canaria/MC about things that bother him which leads to misunderstandings. The MC being careless in her actions and words that cause rumours doesn't help much either.

Plot: predictable! Modern woman in her 20s dies and reincarnates as the story's villain at the age of 12. This type of storyline has been recycled many times but if done right can become a good read. This one falls short witth the slow pace of the story and somewhat uninteresting characters.

I suggest reading these similar reincarnation themed mangas: Lady baby, Suddenly became a princess one day, I am a child of this house, Sincerely, I becsme the duke's maid, The duchess' 50 tea recipes, Doctor Elise. There are many others but I can't name them all.

Overall, I couldn't read past chapter 39. It's definitely one where I may come back to it if I'm bored.

Good read if you like reincarnated villainess genre

Is it original? No, not at all.
Have I thoroughly enjoyed it? Absolutely!

Read it if you need your reincarnated villainess fix. MC would make Bakarina proud.

Added bonus: art style is really pretty. Wouldn't say it's got a lot of technical or layout finesse, but the faces and outfits are 10/10
Update: got bored with this series and dropped. It's gone on way too long.

I lost interest after

Canaria and Caesar finally are a thing. I don't need the political fallout bs afterward

In all fairness, it takes a lot to make me like a romance (unless it's got other stuff going for it) so I guess that's something.
