    I have finally finished this book and have caught up with the anime. It’s time to continue on, one thing for certain thing is that the pacing of the anime is different then the book. The book has had way more of an explanation so you know why the characters feel the way they feel in the moment and why they react as strong even though you don’t think that the should be acting that way plus the author give little back ground stories on the characters so you can see how they were brought up.

    Success? Success! In the timeline of the novel series, roughly two years have passed. Although for readers, it surely feels like an eternity has transpired since this tiny, sickly, blue-haired weirdo embarked on her journey to become a librarian in world without books. ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #5 marks Myne's long-overdue hurdling of the challenges stymying her new livelihood. Paper? Ink? Binding instruments? Check. Check. And check. Now, all she needs to think about is the content. ASCENDANCE OF Success? Success! In the timeline of the novel series, roughly two years have passed. Although for readers, it surely feels like an eternity has transpired since this tiny, sickly, blue-haired weirdo embarked on her journey to become a librarian in world without books. ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #5 marks Myne's long-overdue hurdling of the challenges stymying her new livelihood. Paper? Ink? Binding instruments? Check. Check. And check. Now, all she needs to think about is the content. ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #5 is low key, compared to the previous two volumes. There are no obvious, overarching conflicts and the number and appearance of antagonists are largely circumstantial and dealt with in the immediate aftermath. As such, readers will find this novel an easy and swift read for how it encircles Myne's ever-tightening grip on finally producing a book in this fantastical new land. The ink-creation process, as with the paper-creation process, is a peculiar combination of trial and error that sees Myne, Lutz, and others assembling an array of odd materials and trying their utmost to find the perfect combination of luck and hard work. The team dabbles with woodblock printing, semi-professional stenciling, and eventually solid-ink, screen-printing techniques. It is fascinating and hilarious that so much authentic discussion can be had from the mind of a book otaku on subjects as obtuse as creating glue from animal skins or manufacturing pigments from crushed gemstones. Indeed, if Urano had put any of this info to practical use in her previous life, who knows what could've happened. The moment these characters successfully draft, print, and bind their first book will ring surprisingly emotional for readers. Myne, herself, puts it best: "I started with nothing. No stamina, no strength, no money, no paper, no ink, no tools. But I challenged the world anyway, and my work finally bore fruit" (171). The annoying apprentice shrine maiden, who is apparently a commoner, keeps surprising everyone at the temple. Sometimes her view of the world through the eyes of a bibliophile drips with acerbity (e.g., she pledges a "festival of blood" for the noble who trashes the temple's book room); sometimes her gullibility is equally ingenious as much as it is a liability (e.g., her fulfilling a summons under the protection of the Knight's Order leaves everyone's mouths agape). The author has mastered the tendency to surprise readers and other characters in the same line of thought, raising one's expectations that even after nearly a half-dozen volumes, Myne still has a lot of knowledge to bestow (and a lot of trouble to get into). ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #5 dips its toes into the sentimental as well, but reserves such an exchange for the Epilogue, during which the High Priest and Myne have an open and honest discussion about how it is this little girl knows so much about, well, so much. Plainly speaking, Myne's aptitude is the stuff wars are fought over. As such, the High Priest, while written somewhat cynically, may end up being Myne's strongest and most important ally who ensures her long-term safety.

    When Myne learns her mother is pregnant, her book mania takes on a new goal: to create a picture book for her new sibling. To that end, she struggles to create ink, images, repeatable printing, and more. But while her monofocus blinds her to everything else, Ferdinand is trying to grow her into a proper blue robed shrine maiden. Because he's aware, even if she's not, that Myne holds much the nobility covets, and if she can't deal with them on equal footing she's liable to lose it all. Ferdinand's When Myne learns her mother is pregnant, her book mania takes on a new goal: to create a picture book for her new sibling. To that end, she struggles to create ink, images, repeatable printing, and more. But while her monofocus blinds her to everything else, Ferdinand is trying to grow her into a proper blue robed shrine maiden. Because he's aware, even if she's not, that Myne holds much the nobility covets, and if she can't deal with them on equal footing she's liable to lose it all. Ferdinand's exasperation is one of the highlights of this novel. From Myne refusing to reduce her reading time to her musical aptitude to the way she can't pick up on his attempts to be subtle, he's often thrown for a loop by this precocious young girl. Her sidetracking him into a conversation about how to catalogue books of magic according to the Dewey Decimal System was a particular favorite (please revisit this in full later, author!). I also love how Myne's reaction to a device that can read her memories is to refuse to disconnect until she can do it again. The fact that she was told this is something used on criminals or suspected traitors is of far less importance than the ability to re-visit the books, food, and people of her previous life. As usual, though, there are some heavier undercurrents to the slice-of-life plot. Myne doesn't really appreciate what she means to this world at large, since her only focus is books, but Ferdinand and Benno, particularly, are aware of what she represents and are trying to corral this in more positive directions. But once Myne spectacularly blows her cover, even Ferdinand may not have the ability to protect her from what's to come. Overall this is another excellent continuation of the plot so far. Myne's technological progress is offset by some social setbacks, and now that she's being noticed by the wider world, her future is in question. I rate this book Highly Recommended.

    "I'm Home" This is the third time Myne said this line accross the entire length of the series and yet this time, the emotional feels is just so so much. The author has been succesfully create the build up for this and reach the climax when Myne say the word. It just amazing ! There is a new group of people in this volume under the name of The Knight Order. What they did is basically guarding the people from monsters lurking in the world and ensuring their safety ( the people, not the monster ).

Of course now that they have appeared, the first magic battle across the series is imminent. The excitement aside, there is still no visible enemies. Although, the High Bishop made another cameo and said to be causing ruckus among the noble, but that just it. One thing that stands out to me is the fact that Myne suddenly open up to Ferdinand out of nowhere and tell him everything. I get it when she told Lutz about herself, but the High Priest ? Come on, Myne....

    This is the 5th book in a 28 book series. Most of which has not been translated. I am losing my mind at how slow translation is, but I will wait for every I to have its dot and every t to be crossed, because this is my very most favorite light novel in the isekai genre. Myne gets transmigrated from modern day Japan to Erenfest (sp?), after she dies. She is a huge bookworm and thinks she can survive in this town (think 1500s German feel) if only she had a book.

Myne's life continues to get better and better as she works toward her goals Excellent story line, well told. I will read and re-read this amazing series for years to come.

    This marks the start of anything magical for Myne! And despite being exposed to the venomous malice alongside the magic of the noble society, I can't help but be pumped up for what's next to come for her!! I'm so glad she was able to retrace her memories too and be able to properly apologize and bid farewell to her mother. The anime and the book certainly had some difference. But this was so fun to read. You can easily see the "human" in Myne. Her emotions and train of thoughts were unfiltered a This marks the start of anything magical for Myne!

    I have waited for this book so dearly and now I am sad, that I have already finished it. This story just keeps getting better and better. Maines life in the temple continues and the atmosphere, description and action is as well written as in the previous four books. The characters developments and descriptions are all great and I start liking Ferdinand more than I have already done. But the best thing which is making me laugh again and again are the german names which are used for the gods.

All I can recommend this book to everybody who likes a good, but slow story line with an detailed world and really realistic characteres.

    Oh the trouble our girl Myne gets herself into! Oh so much happens in this one! Italian Restaurant stuff, Ink, an actual book, the Knight Order Request... Great stuff. I don't want to elaborate too much because that will spoil the fun of reading it for yourself. But this one is filled with so many different things going on. It looks like a fairly thin volume but ended up being nearly 400 pages. If you've been following Myne's adventures you'll definitely not want to miss this one.

    Every volume I always want more of it. This series still remains the only book series where I always read the forward and the epilogue. Normally I find them tedious, but I love how the author always manages to change my perception of characters during these segments. I will not say much else because I am afraid of spoiling people. But I was in tears during one part because of how moved I was. Cannot wait for the next volume!

    Still bubblegum, still comfy, still a nice thing to turn to when I want a quick read to reset before diving into something more serious. I enjoyed this book a lot, and with some signs that the plot is finally building up some steam, I'm interested in seeing where things go next. One of the nice things about this series is the speed of translation. With the next volume scheduled for an April ebook release, I don't have to wait too long to find out what happens next!

    It may be my Japanese ability but I felt like it was just bouncing around from topic to topic pretty suddenly with no real build up to the next scene. Not my favorite book of the series but the ending mirrors the anime's beginning and it's a really great hook for the next book. Argh! Just have to keep going I guess.

    Again, I absolutely love the extra details that are in this light novel as opposed to the anime. I can’t wait to start reading the next book. The world building and the progression of the story is amazing. They keep the plot grounded with what’s immediately relevant to Myne, while also hinting at something bigger to come.

    Another fine volume. And Myna finally makes a book. And someone finally realizes that Myna is going to make the whole town rich. Or start a war. Or something. A fun read with interesting characters and an interesting world. I'm sad that now I'm going to have to wait for the next volume. Maybe at some point Myna will get to grow up. Another fine volume.

    The class divide is a little over the top, but maybe it's a Japanese thing. Nobles can just indiscriminately kill commoners... Okay. Maybe we should refer to commoners as serfs because the culture has a distinct feudal vibe. The class divide is a little over the top, but maybe it's a Japanese thing.

    閱讀到目前為止覺得這個系列還蠻有趣的,在看梅茵各種做新的物品時, 也覺得她有一些想法與考量也是還不錯(雖然也是常出現欠缺熟慮的過程XD) 有時會想說如果是自己遇到同樣的情境到了異世界,大概也做不出這些東西,尤其自己歷史概念又極差 在讀的過程慢慢去更進一步理解過去文化中的一些進步還蠻有趣的 隨著故事推進有越來越多角色,看外傳從不同視角講述故事內容也很不錯 看了騎士團裡面展現的貴族的樣貌,不知道接下來又會有甚麼樣的起伏 在這集神官長的表現又更豐富了一些, 書末的反體驗看到神官長的各種驚訝還蠻好玩的, 而麗乃對於媽媽的感情流露讓人覺得蠻觸心的。

    Good continuation of one of my favourite light novels. Gentle pace to the plot, but with enough action between the slice of life scenes to give it some forward momentum, and you can see there's a long-term arc. Like Myne, like the supporting characters, can't wait for more. Good continuation of one of my favourite light novels.
