    I have lost the spark for reading the novels on this site. Whenever I look at new releases the beginnings all sound like generic trash. Have I become too jaded/experienced. What are novels that you consider good here on NU?

    I am in similar state, I just check Novel Extra as I became absorbed, though it's shadow of it's previous self, and eagerly await ending of Mother of Learning while checking out Fanfiction net and RRL for interesting things.

    Stay away from novels for a while. Do something else hear music play games do some kind of hobby and then try again.

    According to your reading list, you've barely read anything.

    As for good novels try Arifureta. Plus, check out Scribble Hub/Royal Road for some novels. Flow is a great one.

    How do you feel about manga? Same feeling or is it different?

    I've began doing that. Its been six months and I still cant read these novels. Maybe I've grown out of the initial wow factor of seeing new ways of world building

    Read something different.

    @Sordahon mentioned Mother of Learning. That might be a good change of pace. For other originals you might want to check out, see: Arcane Emperor, Randidly Ghosthound, Practical Guide to Evil, Zombie Knight, I Reincarnated as A Magic Academy... Or wander on over to ScribbleHub or RRL and just check out whatever is trending.

    You can also try fanfiction. Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is a pretty good shellshocker if you usually don't put a lot of thought into things. Fairly inspiring, too. ... alternatively, something like For Love of Magic, another HP fanfic, might be good if you want a power trip that totally shakes up a familiar story.

    On Novel Updates, too, you might still find novels that differ a lot from what you normally read.

    A few recommendations off the top of my head, trying to spread out the genres:

    Lord of the Mysteries
    Side Character Transmigrations
    The Legend of Sun Knight
    The Lazy King
    Ze Tian Ji
    Gourmet Food Supplier
    To Be a Power in the Shadows!
    Transmigrator Meets Reincarnator

    Edit: I see you've read some of what I recommended, like Sun Knight. For that, try other novels translated by the same group! I also see novels like Master Hunter K and Reincarnator on your list. Try novels like Dungeon Hunter, Sovereign of Judgement, Dimensional Sovereign, I Alone Level-up, etc, that are similar to those. Otherwise, try a few of the others I listed, like Side Character Transmigrations, Gourmet Food Supplier or Lord of the Mysteries - for a slight change of pace.

    If you want to read, but don’t feel like webnovels or manga, I suggest you try ebooks for a while. Any time I get tired of webnovels I go read some ‘normal’ novels for a few weeks/months. Then those get annoying and I switch back to webnovels.

    Whatever you switch to (books,tv, movies or manga) it does sound like your brain would like a break from webnovels.

    I'd say step away from novels for awhile and pick up something else. I did that, and although I'm not an enthusiastic, I'm still happily reading new content
