Favorite Genre- Part 1

Hello all!!! So let’s get away from book reviews and talk about genre for a while…

So what is actually a genre?

Genre is a noun, depicting a style or category in arts, music and literature. So in books, there are many different types of genre as we all know–thriller, romance, historical fiction, YA, literary fiction…

So today, I am going to be talking about my favorite genre, why I like that particular genre and my favorite books of that genre

So my favorite genre is….thriller/mystery!

Why do I like that type of genre???

So here are the reasons

  • Solving a puzzle–when reading a thriller books is like you are solving a puzzle on your own. Like who did that? Why? All these questions are coming into your head with various characters in the books looking like suspects of that crime. So that’s why I like it.
  • The mystery behind the character–a good thriller usually make the protagonist naive or weak with a questionable and regrettable past that seems to haunt them. So as a reader, we want to know more about the protagonist’s past.
  • The thrill–when reader a thriller book, you feel a sudden thriller, keeping yourself on the edge with each unexpected twists and turns in each chapter. I like that feel of the thrill
  • Real world–most thrillers are realistic–the stories are based on real-life situations. I like books that are realisitc.
  • Female protagonists–truth to be told, a protagonist female is more interesting to read than a male one.

So here are some of my favorite psychological thriller books which I also recommend to you all, if you haven’t read it yet. (some of these books I will do a review)

  1. The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
