The Lady Needs a Break

It is my cursed destiny to be reborn endlessly. A king, an archmage, a slave, a saint, a witch... I’ve done it all in my thousand years of life, and frankly, I need a break! My goal now is simple: to live like an absolute sloth. Unfortunately, I am Rubia, the daughter of a grand duke with a demanding family and a fiancé to boot. To live my dream sloth life, I’m running away from it all... except no matter where I go, nobody will leave me be! I just want to nap, but being lazy is hard work!

Okay, first of all: the art for the FL is stunning. The story itself is an entertaining read. Not a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, but certainly enjoyable. Premise: It details the 53rd life of woman, who, for a thousand years, has continuously been reincarnated into another life upon death. At this point, she is quite tired of living and wishes to live a relaxing life "as a sloth", i.e. enjoy life without any worries or struggles. Unfortunately for her, this time she is reincarnated as the daughter of a grand duke in a dysfunctional family. Not wanting to live in such a stressful life, she escapes to the academy with her maid. From here on out, it's the usual stuff: malicious gossiping of other nobles, bullying between other students, her fiance is the 4th prince, the crown prince shows an interest in her... But where it deviates are her reactions. She is not a blushing teenager, but a thousand-year-old woman. She has been everything from doctor to soldier to author to teacher, and is not interested in the petty power struggles of academy students. That is not to say that she's weak: if necessary, she can absolutely destroy those who cross her. She just doesn't like to bother with it. The FL is smart, elegant, educated, skilled and exudes dignity. All in all, it's an interesting read that subverts major tropes. Is it serious or deep? No. But it made me laugh out loud multiple times, and it's hard not to get caught up in the easy-going pace of the MC. Would I recommend reading it? I'd strongly recommend to at least give it a try. It's a breath of fresh air and quite relaxing after a heavy read (speaking form experience here). The FL is highly likeable, and romance only plays a minor role (if any).
