The Library of Heaven’s Path is a popular web novel that has received mixed reviews. It may not be the best web novel but this novel’s concept is unique. The world is also unlike anything else seen before. In this novel, the main character begins as a teacher. The main character has a cheat—a mysterious library in his mind—that compiles any object or person’s data into a book.
The novel is full of comedic and face-slapping moments. The world-building is excellent. Character development is okay.
Despite having many positive aspects, the novel’s main flaw is the plot’s repetition.

Now, the main character is on a quest to find the greatest sect. In this story, the author cleverly employs cliches. The main character is clearly weak, but with the help of System and his wits, he appears strong to the other characters.
The characters are well developed. Similarly, the cultivation world has been well thought out. This story contains no romance or love interest.

The First Order is yet another good apocalyptic novel on this list. People start to awaken various kinds of abilities. The main character gets a System that provides different items and abilities to the main character. The System is unusual and unpredictable. The world is completely unique and developed in a steady manner. Even in chapter 500, there are many things in the world to be explored.
The protagonist is amusing, principled, and ruthless. He appears to be strong, but there are other powerful forces at work. The main character overcomes numerous challenges by using his wits and brain.
Other characters and their abilities are well written as well. Each character is fully fleshed out and recurs rather than being discarded. Fights and other actions are depicted in great detail. There are no harems or late-night romances. The balance of romance and humor, as well as the rest of the story, is excellent.

7. Trafford’s Trading Club
Action Adventure Horror Mystery Psychological Tragedy Xuanhuan
Trafford’s Trading Club is another one-of-a-kind best web novel on this list in which the main character is the store owner.
Trafford’s Trading Club, set in modern-day Earth, has a slow-paced plot that mostly revolves around several side stories as our main character goes about his daily life as an omnipotent and mysterious store owner. The side stories are written in such a way that the characters’ motivations and actions are difficult to predict. Reading is the only way to find out.
Before he owned the store, the main character was just a regular kid. He has the ability to sell anything, including money, power, and life, for the right price. The main character is calm and appears to be quite ordinary. What makes him interesting is that he always appears to stand in the observer’s way, only interfering when the safety of his loved ones or the priorities of his guests/customers are jeopardized.
8. Ultimate Scheming System
Action Adventure Comedy Ecchi Harem Martial Arts Mature Xianxia
Ultimate Scheming System is a hilarious web novel. This novel has a light-hearted plot that mostly focuses on the shameless main character and shouldn’t be taken seriously when reading.
The main character is reincarnated into the cultivation world and is weak. Luckily, he gets a System. Now, the only way to survive is by acting tough. The more ‘tough’ the main character acts, the more points he gains in order to become stronger. To get the points, the main character must become shameless. The plot revolves primarily around this.
In the story, there are several love interests that are not fully explored. Similarly, there are several flaws in the story, but if you’re only looking for a good laugh, this is the book for you.
9. Super Gene
Action Adventure Comedy Mecha School Life Sci-fi Xuanhuan
Super Gene is yet another popular web novel that has received mixed reviews. The basic premise of this novel is that humans colonize the galaxy, and there is the invention of a teleporter, but it does not work as intended, and the teleporter takes people to the sanctuary, where technology does not work but one can improve themselves from the gene by hunting creatures of the sanctuary.
The world-building is excellent. The story progresses at a steady pace. In the story, there is no harem. The plot includes a late romance. Fights and actions are also enjoyable, but the same cannot be said for the novel’s characters, who are forgotten at random. The plots are left unresolved and become repetitive.
Despite its flaws, Super Gene is one of Webnovel’s most popular novel.
10. I’m Really a Superstar
Action Adventure Comedy Drama Slice of Life
I’m Really a Superstar is a popular contemporary comedy novel. This well-written novel provides insight into Chinese culture and tradition.
The general premise is that the main character, Zhang Ye, appears on another modern-day Earth with a game ring. The game ring is powered by ‘Reputation’. He gains ‘Reputation’ if people approve of something he did. He can use the Reputation points to get various benefits and skills.
His goal is to become the number one celebrity in the world. The main character’s previous earth has a different culture and art, so the main character uses his knowledge of the previous earth to become popular. The main character is also unique. Similarly, the personalities of the other characters vary. The romance in this novel is an added bonus. There isn’t a harem.
Overall, this novel has good world-building, well-written characters, and good comedy. The only flaw in this novel is that it was banned.
