I read this one in what it felt like an instant. I thought that, as I am sleep deprived and have nothing better to do, I would review this more extensively than previous volumes. This volume marks the beginnings of the now called Rozemyne in her role of becoming the adopted daughter of the archduke, though it is still early to predict all the implications of her new status, whoever has read to this point knows that one of the main themes of this series is challenging the class system. We started with Myne waking up in that small and dirty room that she had to share with her family and now she is conducting tea parties attended by all the ladies in the duchy. She came a long way, in a way, yeah (and we attended to every step she made, even the most tearful ones...). But the most interesting of this “Ascendance” are not that kind of frivolities, but the fact that now she has real power to put all upside down. Noble society has strict rules and I am sure she will eventually have to face the political enemies of Sylvester’s faction, but in this little lapsus proceeding Veronica’s fall, she is absorbing so much knowledge and growing immensely as a character. Also, due to this new acquired power, she is being more creative than ever with her inventions and more eager to keep following her dream. Now, past two amazing arcs, we can see where all her effort to keep fighting is leading. It all started with the simple desire, actually a burning passion, to read books. Now, three years later, she is finally setting up the printing industry and is likely to bring about a cultural revolution, all the while learning to manage her mysterious powers in order to part in search of the potion that will enable her to become a strong noblewoman. Bit by bit, we are being presented a detailed and restricting magic system along with the already astonishing worldbuilding that gets being rediscovered as we meet characters from different professions and conditions. We knew mana determines rank in a way but here we learned that there are actual magical ingredients that you have to fetch or buy and, knowing how the plot has gone so far, we can expect those to be involved in political struggles in the future. We also ended up learning more about feystones, useful to grant blessings and create golem-like creatures (feybeasts) as well as about family-bound magics. I can only expect for the best for next volume. Let us see if Wilfried will overcomes that elementary schooler of a dad he has. 😉

    It feels kinda sad when you open the character page and see Lutz, Benno, Mark and Myne's family introduction is relegated only as a text without photos as what we used to be. But alas, every good things must come to an end, and Rosemyne (along with me it seems..), need to move on to the new world, that is the world of the nobility. As this is a new arc, I don't know what to expect. So far, I like how the author giving Myne new goals for her life and at the same time widen the scope of the series.

And for the first time ever, there is another goals in this series rather than making books, although making books is still the main focus of this bibliography series. All the new characters, while there is a lot of them is still easy enough to recognize once you familiarize with them. Oh, and now High Priest is written using his real name, which is Ferdinand, while this is a minor thing but for those that is not gotten used to it (like me) it will confuse you for a bit. Aside from the new and shiny things, let's focus onto the old and well-known thing. Personally, this series is always a page turner for me. I don't know why someone that generally prefer actions and fantasy genre, gotten head over heels over a slice of life story like this.

    Kazuki read my mind! This was probably the most fast paced book in the series to date. We hit on all the stuff I wanted to see or internally thought about. The restaurant, Uncle Ferdinand, the cat bus! I swear I really did think the cat bus would be best for safety and additional seating. I will have to absorb all the new characters.

    Funniest book of this series! I thought Myne moving to the nobles' quarters would be a scary and foreboding ordeal but boy I could not have been more wrong! Her adventures and personal interactions with her noble family were absolutely funny and her relationship with Ferdinand was hilariously heartwarming. I think this is my new favorite in the entire series. 5Stars!!! Funniest book of this series!

    Another great entry This is another great entry in the series. To those wondering if the characters from the lower city were being written out, you have nothing to fear. It is just a problem that Myne has to solve in this volume and the ones to come.

    After the ruckus at the end of the previous volume, one would hope Lady Rozemyne would have earned respite of some sort. Not so much. Within weeks of the spectacle that saw the little girl fight for her life against a nefarious assortment of greedy nobles and selfish zealots, Rozemyne is thrown back into the spotlight. It's comical to fathom all the twists and turns the author must have gone through in planning ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #8.

Within weeks of the spectacle that saw the little girl fight for her life against a nefarious assortment of greedy nobles and selfish zealots, Rozemyne is thrown back into the spotlight. It's comical to fathom all the twists and turns the author must have gone through in planning ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #8. It is, in a word, impressive, the reinvention of Myne a noble, to hide her commoner roots, the elevation of her position in the temple, and her further integration into the family of the Archduke of Ehrenfest, and all without carelessly invoking retroactive continuity. All in all, it's fun to see how many characters are as bewildered at these glitzy shenanigans as the readers are. The land of the nobility contains therein an intriguing and strangely complementary grouping of traits to which Rozemyne is perfectly suited: profound work ethic, valuing of knowledge and education, establishing of trends. Rozemyne is a bit snake-bitten at realizing how many hours she must dedicate to the craft of social graces (e.g., tea parties, cultural rites), but the girl adapts quickly and knows how to put her knowledge where it fits best (e.g., convincing rich women to purchase rinsham). The girl already earns high marks for her intelligence; now she's turning heads with her clever perspective on how to engage others with that intelligence in hand. And it's just as well, since it's time to officially open the Italian restaurant, it's time to officially scout land for a satellite office of the workshop, and it's time to officially boost Rozemyne's knowledge of her illness on a granular level. ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #8 turns and glances down a number of side streets and alleyways. For example, when the high priest, Ferdinand, deigns to teach Rozemyne about mana use, the result provides a unique glimpse into how magic is taught and learned in this fantasy realm. The girl is a natural. And even though her ability to attenuate the strength of her mana requires further training, it's great to see the characters are taking seriously the many different ways she can apply her incredible power. (Also, the author's not-so-subtle shout-out to My neighbor Totoro is devilishly funny.) Another funny example occurs when it becomes abundantly clear Rozemyne's knowledge of food and cooking is, well, otherworldly. The restaurant launch is a huge success. So much so that Ferdinand, Karstedt, and Sylvester all vie to hire (steal away) Rozemyne's chefs. The resulting bickering pits the sly and straightforward high priest against the warm but stern knights commander against the archduke himself, and no matter how tasty the bread, soup, salad, or roasted duck, all anyone can do is sigh. Ferdinand's extravagant rhetorical elucidation on the restaurant's consommé is at once heartrendingly beautiful and outrageously comical ("Now, now, Ferdinand. Don't try to sneak her out from under our noses here."). Readers may have initially feared the next arc of the novel series would pit Rozemyne against all sorts of snooty royal types, but the truth, thankfully, is quite different. The girl is welcomed warmly by most of the book's several new characters. A few are haughty and a few are silver-tongued, but that's to be expected. As for the unexpected, there is a clever note about Wilfried, Sylvester's eldest son, who is a few years older than Rozemyne, being somewhat illiterate. And then there's Brigitte, a bodyguard who eschews most feminine articles and tropes, who slowly warms to the weird proclivities of her young new charge. ASCENDANCE OF A BOOKWORM #8 leans heavily on character dynamics and acclimation to a new social environment, and as such, doesn't overly emphasize the printmaking facet of the novel series. Rozemyne makes progress on her work with wax stencils and advances the quality of letterpress printing in general. The fruits of her labor are impressive and she earns a great deal of respect for it. Funnily enough, almost too much respect. And while it looks like this bookworm is well on track to becoming a librarian in another world, if she's not careful, she'll be more than a book otaku, she'll become a saint.

    Still obsessed with this series! I've been impatiently waiting for this one. It deals with the changes in mynes life now that she's Rozemyne. The temple was a transition but this is even more crazy changes! Also a lot of things we've been waiting for happen in this book. Like the Italian restaurant, getting her magic mount (i adored the picture of her mount, soo cute!) and how they are going to expand printing.

My fav parts were probably the restaurant and the concert. I have to say the dynamic between the brothers and their cousin (Ferdinand, Sylvester, and Kurdstadt) is so great and pretty much any scene with all three had me laughing. Ferdinands fans were also cracking me up so hard. Bennoo is still my favorite but these books have such great characters i love a ton of them. There was a scene near the beginning i saw other reviews complain about. It was uncomfortable but definitely had no sexual connotations. It was also very important world building because it establishes the science of how Mynes mana works and how bodies in this world biologically do differ from ours. I really don't know how they'll include it in the anime because they litterally talk about another important scene from an earlier book that the anime completely left out. Hopefully they find a way to include the mana info without the scene.

    The number of times I burst out laughing while reading this gem was wholly unexpected. Rozemyne is integrated into noble society so quickly that she's still making faux pas left and right... but her interactions with her new families are fun.

We've got a lot of new characters, and yes, that means some of the old ones, especially her birth family and Lutz aren't seen as much, there are a lot of new names to learn, relationships to sort out (and build). All of which are going to get the classic Myne touch whether they want to or not. Nobody's life in the Noble World is going to remain the same. Hurricane Rozemyne has arrived and is going to shake things up. Definitely looking forward to more Ascendance of a Bookworm!

    This volume was enjoyable, but it also felt like there was a lot of set up for the next volume. I burst out laughing at quite a number of moments throughout the book, and I am glad that some of my favourite characters were able to make appearances throughout the book. It is just that with the increase in scale, my favourite characters do not always appear and have their chances to shine in the book. As always, I cannot wait for the next volume!

    A bit more readable than the previous volume, but that may be just a side effect of reading two in a row. Myne has a new name and is now a noble. And unfortunately that means we the reader also have to hang around with nobles, which are somewhat less interesting than the common folk. And I miss Myne interacting with people more closely and on the same level. The Italian Restaurant bits were better than I expected, and Myne's magical beast was fun. Still I would have liked a bit more. 3.5 of 5. A bit more readable than the previous volume, but that may be just a side effect of reading two in a row. Myne has a new name and is now a noble.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was an excellent beginning to a new arc. I love the light hearted tone through out the novel and especially loved the new characters for they each have unique personalities especially Rosmynes new attendant at the castle hehehe. I do feel like the excessive ogling over Ferdinand was weird and exaggerated especially since his looks alone cured Wilma of her fear of men...

    Rozemyne starts her life as a young archnobel while further developing the craft of bookmaking and cooking. We get to see some great world building including a lot of detail on how nobles raise their children and how they interact with commoners. The magic training was kind of funny. There was no action though and little overall plot progress. More a slice-of-life part good for character development and worldbuilding. Loved it. Curious what is going to happen in future parts.

    I love this series to death, and this one was no exception for that. However, there were quite a few more lighthearted laughs in this volume, including a couple of ongoing situations that had me uncontrollably laughing and having to pause my reading. X3

    Least favorite. I'm not sure if it's because I like Myrne, when she's bumbling into trouble, or as a commoner with a commoner family, but this was was a major disappointment . I skipped through most of the chapters. Least favorite.
