Many people including me has difficulty with genres and subgenres. The classifications of books over the years have become more difficult and convoluted. Here i will try and simplify things for others as much as possible and show which genres are the ones I read and which I don’t as well. This is going to be fun as there are so many classifications I will also try and do an example of each genre and subgenre
More to come with a lost and brief description of each.
Non-fiction – this is a general catch all for books that are not fictional. This genre includes multiple sub genres. Biographies are one such book sub genre that is attached in non fiction .
Example: shaking hands with the Devil by Romeo dallaire.
Fiction – the general category thst means made up. It is not a true story.
Example: to kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee.
Those are the two genres but there are many sub genres and some books cross into multiple genres.
Each of these can have multiple sub sections under them as well.
For me I tend to read the ones thst are linked to fantasy or to mysteries.
Fantasy in and of itself is a full genre with multiple aspects thst separate it out into there own areas.
