The Lighter and the Princess’ Gown · Barren Grasslands 打火机与公主裙·荒草园 by Twentine


I have my King

I am his loyal subject

For him, I am willing to stand my ground, waving my flag and hollering at the top of my lungs

For him, I am willing to fight on the battlefield, battling tirelessly till Death claims me

    Went to read this novel without knowing that there is Part 2 omg!!! So I immediately stopped when I was at three-quarter of the book.

    As usual, Twentine produces great work. The female lead comes from a well to do family. Her father is a well-known figure in the education sector and her mum is a principal or vice-principal of a school. As for her, she is a good student and always top her class. But there is another side of her. She smokes secretly at time and this actually traces back to one of her history. She is not obsessed with smoking though, which I like because I don’t need a complete bad girl side of her. This subtle side of her is enough to make you feel engaged enough with the story, always wondering what kind of girl she is. Luckily, she is not a bad ass otherwise it will be too predictable.

    The female leads has many inner monologues and I love it because it shows that she is not what she shows herself to be. She is just a typical girl who will roll eyes people etc. The male lead somehow manages to know that she has many inner monologues going in her head so he always ask us to speak out hah.

    The male lead is a genius in making codes for website/programmes. Other than scoring well in school, he has an extensive experience writing codes for businesses… and this fact is actually linked to his family background. He comes from a poor village family but strives to work hard. Really, really hard. But he is super cocky and frequently offends ppl. But yunno deep down he is just a super, super nice guy. T_T

    The male lead in this novel reminds of Chi You in Once Promised. This guy IS the modern version of Chi You. And I can’t wait for Part 2 to come out T_T

    dramasbooksandtea, why did you leave me hanging? hahaha. :'(

    @pm Hi pm, sorry for late reply hehehe. Part 2 is out now! dramasbook is right, twentine (they called her 量哥 in forums, I don’t really know why though) is updating at a very consistent speed. 7pm everyday 🙂 So far 6 chapters are out. I’m ready to finish first book hahahah.

    @dramabooks sigh I feel like in the second book, he starts to lose his confidence and felt that Zhu Yun has betrayed him. Thank god the little man stole her wallet. Pls write your review/thoughts for this book! I definitely can’t write and express my thoughts on this book as well as you :X Always love reading your summary of the characters hehe. Thanks for introducing this book, I really love it a lot 🙂 Are you chasing the 2nd book as well?

    The ebook link (above) no longer works for The Lighter and Princess Gown. I was reading this book on the website, Twelve Months of May, but that site is no longer up.
    Does anyone have a copy of this great book so that I may finish this story?
    Thanks in advance!
