Webnovels also count as books and has recently become a very popular. Let's check 5 popular Chinese webnovels available for us. This is not a rating, just 5 good cultivation in a fantasy world novels. I'll try to do similar list's for a different genres later.
In recent years Chinese novels attacked by Chinese censorship and very big amount of a good novels got deleted because that. It's ok if novel finished, we still can found it in internet. But just recently published novels not only get banned, but also axed by writers since they can't earn from them.
Author: Heavenly Silkworm Potato (天蚕土豆)
One of the best cultivation novel in a fantasy world. If you don't have time to read novels I recommend to read it and next novel from the same author - Wu Dong Qian Kun. Both novels can be a bit repetitive, but they worth it. Plot also similar, young boy who need to become strong in order to protect his family. Ofc you can just read manga version with same name for both of them. WDQK cruel at some parts, but at least everyone have a reason to be cruel.
There also exist a 3rd novel (The Great Ruler) that unite both worlds, too bad it's average.
