Reading Here Reading When the Villainess Loves Novel Really enjoyed this one. It has the terminally ill protagonist connect with the other male leads in a less romantic way, instead allowing the human connection to show through. The mc is a strong female lead who attempts to get to know the other characters who only have heard negative rumours about her, all of which have their expectations subverted. They pull off character development pretty well. This will remain on my update list for sure.
