Here’s another Chinese Web Novel Highlight! Legend of Concubine’s Daughter Minglan.
Did you guess it? Yes!
The Story of Minglan cdrama is based off of this web novel.
So if you haven’t gotten enough of Story of Minglan, go check out Concubine’s Daughter Minglan.
With the novel you can at least read Minglan’s thoughts as she grows up in her family.
Unfavored, and alone. Except for her grandmother.
Check out the below synopsis!
The pessimistic and negative daughter of a concubine living in the ancient times thought – since life is so difficult, why should one invest serious effort in struggling to live?
The life of an ancient noble woman is often determined and controlled by her family.
Moreover, one’s actions often implicate one’s entire family – thus, it is fairly common to see an unexpected calamity result in suffering borne by one’s whole family.
Managing to live a good and successful life while retaining one’s dignity is simply too difficult to achieve.
Ah, living in the ancient times is simply too dangerous – we should all just sleep till we die. (sourceinfo: NovelUpdates)
When I first read this web novel, there weren’t that many chapters translated.
And I guess the catalyst now is that there’s a show based off of it.
However, it’s still not completely translated! Or at least not that I can tell tell on NovelUpdates.
Leave a link below to the full translations. And I’ll update this post.

I’ve finished reading what has been translated and the book is absolutely awesome . I’ve searched high and low for a fully translated version to no avail and the RAW version is downright horrible to read. I wish they’ll continue the translation. I want to find and read other books that talk about life in ancient china in such detail
Thanks for the comment!! It’s hard to get translations so the next best thing is mtl (machine translations) but fingers crossed that another group will pick it up again
