hostile_fire life is life. That said the positive things are the new ideas fiction brings to the table to keep ones mind busy and entertained with dreams rather than worries.
I like reading on webnovel for those reasons. Its a missed opportunity that there isnt a friends system on here.
Like you im a big fan of gamelit or system novels as they're also called, provided they dont overdo things.
My favourite system type novel is Terror Infinity.
My biggest hurdle to reading novels are chinese and korean names being difficult for me to remember. As a result, I try to avoid novels with such names as i cant even recall the name of my favorite system novel's mc.
What are yours?
