Light Novels/Web Novels are an extreme way of enjoying a story that we cannot see visually. Sometimes they even feel better than manga or anime.
So, are you unable to read the novels freely or comfortably? Do you need a good alternative where you can read most light novels?
Well, you’re in the right place then. We’ve compiled a list of the best and free light novel apps you can check out and make your efforts easier.
Best Light Novel Apps!
11. Novel Library
Novel Library is a pretty good choice for people who can adapt to the settings and UI of apps. It feels great to read with it once you understand its quirks.
It has a library function where you can add the read list so that you’ll be able to access it later. Overall, it is one of the best light novel apps with multiple features.
10. J-Novel Club
J-Novel Club is a light novel app found by the fans like us who are willing to translate J-works into the English language.
Although there are some cons to the app, its updates are pretty quick. Just make sure you have a good internet connection before trying to access any novel.
9. Aldiko Book Reader
If you’re an iPhone user, then consider using Aldiko Book Reader over any other one. It is specially designed for Apple users, and it provides a great reading experience.
It is an ebook reader with both free books and pay-books. It also works great on Android, but I prefer it more on iPhone.
Neovel is one of the few apps that support both Android and Pc. There are far too few apps with such compatibility.
It also has a good interface, and the reading experience is excellent. If you’re looking for such an app, then go with this one.
7. Lithium: EPUB Reader
Lithium is an EPUB Reader that provides you moderate features, but even those are enough to bring out the best read for you.
Firstly it is ad-free, and you can save the novels offline. So, if you’re looking for light novel apps that provide these features, try this one out.
Ranobe is also another name for “Light Novel.” And it produces a simple yet most satisfying way of chapters for the readers.
Since it accesses novels from various websites, you’ll almost find every Japanese light novel in here (not sure about other ones, though).
5. Novel Updates
Novel Updates is vastly famous for hosting Wuxia, Xianxia, Korean, and Chinese novels. It has a search function that surpasses every app on the list.
If you have no idea what to read, that’s fine too. It automatically recommends you a good one according to the genre you have an interest in or the author you like.
4. Moon + Reader
Moon + Reader is more like an all-in-version of Google Play Books. It has lots more features than any other light novel app I’ve seen.
You can set your themes, find any novels faster, and more importantly, it is well optimized. So consider using this once and see for yourself.
3. PocketBook Reader
PocketBook Reader is not inferior to any app on the list. It even provides a built-in bookstore, audiobooks, and free PocketBook cloud service to sync your novels.
If we keep mentioning all the features, it’ll probably reach at least a couple of hundred words. So, we suggest you try it once so that you can have a fantastic read.
2. BakaReader EX
BakaReader EX is the best light novel reading app if you’re thinking of reading them in offline mode. It allows downloads and is easy to read that way.
It’s not like any other apps don’t have this function, but in this one, it feels more efficient. So, try using it and see for yourself.
1. Read Era
Read Era covers a lot of flaws that you’ll find in other apps. For example, if you’ve left a novel in the middle of a chapter, instead of reloading the full page, it auto-saves the current page.
It has a clean interface, fixes bugs in no time, updates are regular, and do you need anything else to install this amazing app?
