Tired of reading the same type of story over and over??
Let’s Discuss: Genre Fatigue & How to End the Rut
I’m not sure if this is a real term, but I define “genre fatigue,” as the general exhaustion one feels when reading the same type of story over and over and over again. It’s tiring and boring and really starts to get on your nerves.
I don’t get tired of young adult books as a whole, but I definitely get exhausted by certain genres within YA.
For example, if I never read another sick kid dying book it’ll be too soon. I loved The Fault in Our Stars because it was special with a message I’d never read before.
Now, it’s become a trend, and I’m OVER IT (absolutely nothing against you if you do!).
What genre fatigue are you feeling? Are there any types of characters, plot twists or other bookish things you’re tired of reading??
The obvious solution to getting out of reading the same type of book is to either avoid it entirely or to read something out of your comfort zone.
My book club is reading None of the Above for our April meeting, and I know it’ll be an eye-opening read.
What do you do to get out of a reading rut?
