The Best Isekai light novel with female protagonist

The thing about Isekai Light novel, is that it does not just transport the protagonist themselves to another world, it’s that it also transport us readers to that world as well, the better an Isekai light novel at building the world and putting the reader into the POV of the character the more immersive you can get, as a female reader i do enjoy stories from the POV of a female protagonist so here i list some of the best books in this genre that I enjoyed reading.

Isekai light novel

So I’m a Spider, So What?

Yes I know, it’s a spider, but hear me out, it’s a female spider so i guess it counts.

why this is on the top of the list of the best Isekai light novel, because this light novel is on the top of the genre after That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, it takes everything you know and love about the genre and throw it out of the window to give you something even more unique, people keep comparing it to That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, but what they don’t understand is that So I’m a Spider so what is something totally different and you will never understand the difference until you get out of one of the largest labyrinth in that world and the most dangerous place a weak useless, on the bottom of the food chain spider could start it’s life from.

while That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slimegot a power boost from the start, our spider straggled for years to get a power boost that was on par with the strongest enemy in her world, still short in power she straggles even more in the world of So i’m a Spider so what.

honestly, if you still haven’t read the light novel, it’s your time to pick it up. it’s one of the best isekai light novel with female protagonist.

The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent

You could read the Light novel you could watch the anime, funny i did both at the same time, and i can assure you that the anime is a faithful adaptation, minus a few slips or iteration which happens (i like the prince more in the anime, since they made him more redeemable). however the anime only adapted the first 3 books, and a bit of the 4th, you would do yourself a service by continuing the Light novel, it’s such a sweet happy read that can put a smile to your face. one of my favorite isekai light novel with female protagonist hands down.
so what is it about?

This is Not the Saint You’re Looking For
Could workaholic office lady Sei be a legendary Saint? Not according to the crown prince of another world who summoned her and quickly declared a different girl was the real Saint! That suits Sei just fine–she would much rather spend her days quietly helping people with her unbelievably powerful magic. But how long can Sei live her ideal life of leisure before her true nature is revealed?

Reincarnated as the Last of my Kind

This is a bit of slice of life kind of isekai light novel with a female protagonist that might hide more than it shows at first glance.

Here is what synopsis without saying much more about it:

A bicycle crashes into me one night, and the next thing I know, I’m a baby?! Getting reincarnated in another world populated by humans, demi-humans, and mythical beasts is certainly not the turn I thought my life was going to take. I especially didn’t expect to be carried off by a wolf and given into the care of a one-armed former knight! Now I’m trying to repay him by rebuilding the family inn and healing his arm with alchemy. But the more time passes, the more it becomes clear to me that I’m not actually human…

In the Land of Leadale

New Beginnings in Well-Known Place
The last bit of freedom Keina Kagami had after a terrible accident put her on life support was in the VRMMORPG World of Leadale. Though Keina, now Cayna, discovers that her concerns from her previous life seem to be behind her when she awakens in the body of her gaming avatar, this new place doesn’t seem to be exactly the Leadale she knows.

Mostly funny and weird more often than not, but it has some dark moments that can grab you out of no where, an MMORPG Isekai light novel with female protagonist that is a bit lighter than Sword art online.

Past Life Countess, Present Life Otome Game NPC?! 

one of my favorite stand alone book in the genre, not really into reading 5-10 or even 15 books to get the whole story?? no worries cause Past Life Countess, Present Life Otome Game NPC?! is one book only.


Oh dear, it seems I was reincarnated into a modern otome game from a fantasy world!

All I ever wanted was to be free of my responsibilities as a countess and I finally got my wish when I was reborn as a commoner in modern Japan. Everything was going perfect, except it turns out this is the world of an otome game and some crazy girl who goes around calling herself the “heroine” is upset at me for stealing all her “events” with the “love interests”… Now she wants me to team up with her against the “villainess”. I’m supposedly just a random NPC, so why am I being dragged into this?!

intrigued yet? I bet you are.. *smug face*.. who doesn’t love a story with a good twist, right?

Accomplishments of the Duke’s Daughter

When a young woman is killed in a traffic accident on her way home from work at a tax bureau. She awakens in the world of the otome game she was playing the night before—but instead of being the heroine, she’s been reincarnated as the bad Girl, “Iris” avoids personal disaster by using her game knowledge and decides to rebuild her life with her modern-day economic know-how. This is one mean girl who will not let her perceived reputation prevent her from becoming a heroine!

When the story begins here, Iris’ memories of the game serve little purpose other than to motivate a quick shift in priorities. Rather, her memories of modern-day bureaucracy and government help her move forward.
