Top Ten Best Book Genres


The Top Ten

1 Fantasy

Fantasy is by far my favorite, especially Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. Honestly surprised this isn't higher on the list. Definitely more popular among younger generations rather than older ones.

Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Kane Chronicles, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Magisterium are my reasons for loving this genre. - Skullkid755

I think this should be #1. The Lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Heroes of Olympus, Chronicles of Narnia, Howl's Moving Castle, etc. - PeeledBanana

Love the Author made up world and visualizing what the world will look like in a movie - CheesyNachos

2 Murder Mystery

It keeps you glued - zuni

3 Horror
4 Choose Your Path

I have never heard of this. Is it even a genre?

"Choose your path" is technically a genre. I think it started with the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series, and a few authors must've picked up on that. You can find tons of choose your path books at your local library or bookstores. You may not have seen them if you're an adult because the genre mainly consists of children's books.
I hope this helped

5 Comedy
6 Sci-Fi

There's always a promising plot in a good sci-fi book, and a thought-provoking stance in the best ones. - PositronWildhawk

I LOVE murder mystery,I'm not a huge fan of horror, I LOVE fantasy,I don't really like comedy books, I LOVE Choose your own path, but Science Fiction just HAD to be it. Some of the best books EVER are sci-fi. Hunger Games,Divergent,Enders Game,Man in the High Castle,and so much more are all great sci-if books/series. Case closed

7 Spy
8 Action
9 Romance
10 Graphic Novel

The Contenders

11 Comic Book
12 Adventure

Adventures are fun to go through, sure it isn't choose your own, but it is fun to be like a sort of 3rd person in the matter.

13 Realistic Fiction

I love this genre because it includes real life dilemmas and detailed character descriptions.

Too bland and limited for my liking.

14 Dystopian

It is the best genre it Has Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Giver

15 Historical Fiction
16 Handbook
17 Urban Fantasy
18 Erotica

I'm surprised this wasn't added sooner; it has quite a large audience. Although, I don't personally own any or have hardly even read any, I'd rather write erotica than read it. - Britgirl
