    I’ve read a post like this before, where they say they aren’t really happy with any novels at all.
    How people explained it was like he was reading too much, and should take a break. I kinda feel like that too, tired and unsatisfied. What do I do

    I dunno, rest? Find another hobby in the meantime, get bored at it and come back.

    Burnout?

    I suggest getting a cat and treating it as your master.

    But all seriousness aside, try a completely different genre then you are used to. It might freshen you up, especially if you try other languages then you typically read. Like if you read only JP or CN stuff, try Korean or English webnovels.

    If that doesn't do it, then as mentioned take a break or get a new hobby.

    Fap. Life always comes into perspective after a good fap. On a different note this could be the chance you need to try a new genre from the usual stuff

    I can assure you, fapping too long and it gets boring too, I don't get as much dopamine high as I used to.

    It sounds like it has become a chore for you but you do have a point. I take breaks.

    Find better stuff to read? You're probably reading a bunch of garbage that just doesn't interest you anymore.

    Or take a break, go binge watch all digimon animes or something.

    No matter how much you like doing something, do it enough and you'll get sick of it eventually. Take breaks and do other things in the mean time, you'll eventually get that reading drive back.

    Yea, I get what you mean. After reading so many, your standards naturally get higher and it just gets exhausting trying to find good ones.
