Hello, I'm a Witch and My Crush Novel Book Cover

If you’re wondering whether the Hello, I’m a Witch and My Crush novel is the same as the Hi, I’m a Witch manga, then the answer is yes.

So, why bother me with getting the light novel version when they’re practically the same?

Well, you’re not wrong about that.

Regardless of which version you choose, they more or less have the same story.

I’ll let you know later why I’m getting the light novel version despite already reading the manga before.

But my preference over the light novel isn’t anything new considering that I already made my position clear in this blog post.

So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that I prefer the light novel version, hands down.

Even with that, I’m still planning to keep up with the manga version despite already finishing reading the light novel.

Reading the light novel doesn’t give you the same experience as reading the manga version.

And I seem to be such a sucker for that kind of experience for whatever reason.

What Hello, I’m a Witch and My Crush novel is all about

Here’s the book description that I got from Bookwalker.

“I want you to make a love potion.”

The Good Witch of the Lake’s four-year crush ended in heartbreak with a single request from the object of her affections! Wanting to increase what little time she has with Royal Knight Harij, Rose sends him on a wild-goose chase for the ingredients but gets more than she bargained for when the grumbling knight starts visiting her every day…to feed her?

This is the heartwarming story of a shut-in witch and an arrogant, straitlaced knight whose romance starts from a love potion.

What got me to read the light novel

Here’s the funny thing about this light novel – I never knew that the English version of the light novel existed.

It was only after I bought the manga that I realized the existence of the English version of the light novel.

Here I am, thinking that only the manga version gets licensed in English, but not so much with the light novel.

Another reason that got me to read the light novel is that I’m curious how everything will eventually end between the two of them.

Will Rose be honest about her feelings towards Harij? And will Harij reciprocate the love that comes from a witch?

Even if you can guess how everything will turn out between those two in the end, you can’t help but wonder if your assumption about them turns out to be true.

Sure, you will find out about it eventually if you stick to the manga version.

But what can I say? I’m too impatient to wait considering that the manga version still has a long way to go when I got the manga.

What makes Hello, I’m a Witch and My Crush novel worth reading

So, how does the light novel version fare? Is it just as good as the manga version?

Or is it not as good as I thought it would be despite thinking that the light novel should be far superior to the manga?

The good news is the light novel is as good as I expect it to be.

Details related to Rose’s hermitage, the process of how Rose engages with her clients, Harij’s family and career background, and the character’s inner thoughts.

While you can expect to see the same details being fleshed out the same way in the manga version, some of them tend to get lost in the manga.

That seems to be the case with Harij’s point of view since we don’t get to see much of them in the manga version.

There’s nothing unusual about it since it’s nearly impossible for the manga version to cram everything.

But hey, it sure is a plus to give the light novel version a try if you’re someone who is a sucker for details.

And let’s not forget you don’t have to wait for so long just to see how everything will turn out in the end for both of them.

What I didn’t expect when I read the light novel

It’s not unusual for me to have a hard time putting the book down when my curiosity gets the better of me.

That seems to be the case with Root Double light novel where I can’t bring myself to put the book down, especially with so many questions left unanswered.

Sure, it doesn’t seem odd when I have a hard time putting a light novel like Root Double down considering that it’s my kind of story.

But this one?

I’ve never imagined that this light novel would get me hooked just as much as Root Double.

And it’s even harder for me to believe when the light novel isn’t in the genre that I usually read.

Don’t get me wrong, the story is indeed fascinating, be it the manga or the light novel.

But I never thought that I would get hooked this much.

Who should read the light novel?

If you’re on the lookout for a romance light novel, then this light novel has it all.

Two characters who are coming from a different social status, with one of them being someone who gets frowned upon by society.

And let’s not forget the other person has been harboring feelings for another person for as long as she can remember.

It’s interesting to see how the two characters with a mismatched personality will end up together.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the capacity to read a long, ongoing series.

This series only has two books in total, with the next book being a sequel to the story.

If you’re looking for a series that doesn’t have way too many books, then this light novel is the answer to your woe.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to get the light novel too if you already read the manga.

Yes, the story is pretty much the same. But if you’re curious about the details that get left out in the manga version, then it sure is worth your time to give the light novel version a try.

Over to you

What do you think about the Hello, I’m a Witch and My Crush novel? Are you interested in giving this light novel a try after reading about it on my blog?

Let me know in the comments.

P.S. Okay, I admit that the kind of book that I write doesn’t fall into the fantasy genre. And it’s certainly far from the romance genre for sure.

But if you’re fine with reading a psychological suspense novel that also contains a bit of romance in between, then you may enjoy reading my book, The Diary of Modern Cinderella.

The book is available in the usual places such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple Book.

But unlike those retailers, you can buy the book at a discount on my Payhip store instead.
