Memoir

Memoir is a book written about yourself, and how you remember your life.

A memoir is not everything that happened in your life, it's the big things that occor like when you get your first car, when you got married, and other big events have happened in your life.

It's not something that takes you ages to figure out, but very simple, just close your eyes and think of big, and important events that have happened to you during your lifetime.


Humor

The Humor genre is a hilarious genre. Whether it's romantic humor, kid humor, or adult humor, it's sure to have everyone laughing by the end of the book. Sometimes this genre is mistaken for being only for young children, but it can be for anyone! I'm sure everyone has sat down and just wanted to read a funny book to brighten up their day. I know I have! Dark humor involves anxiety, suffering, and death. Not everything is happy. :(

Historical Fiction

The American West/Western

The Ancient Rome

Early Humans and Animal Life

and ect.

Historical fiction is a genre most often determined by setting and the inclusion of authentic historical events and characters in a fictional story.


Biography

The biography is a book about a person or events in their life, but it is not written by the person that it is about. It is simply written by someone else. An author, an admiror, or just a random person.

Adventure

An adventure book or novel is usually about a hero that takes on some sort of task or quest. Whether it's a boy or a girl, the main character is usually an underdog, but turns into a very good person and hero. Although these types of books are usually fast paced and may inclue some older things, there are adventure books for younger kids too! A popular kid's adventure book is Heart of a Samurai. Adventure books are a very popular genre that a lot of people refer to as their favorite! You can't miss it! :)

Auto Biography

An Auto Biography is a biography on a certain person, but they wrote it themselves. Sometimes authors want to have a book about them for people to remember them as before they pass away, so they write it themselves. Often, The Diary Of Anne Frank gets mistaken for an Auto BIography because she wrote her diary herself, but that was never meant to be a book. She kept it why she was underground in the 1940's and someone discovered it and printed it into a book so that oter people could enjoy and research. Auto Biographys are normally well written and DON'T have to be publised/written by an author. Even Thomas Jefferson wrote one for himself!

Fantasy

The Fantasy genre is a fastnating one! From witches to goblins, it's all here! Harry Potter is a very poular fantasy book. It is in this genre because it includes magic, witches, and various other magical things. Harry and his friends use their wands to fix problems and fight off monsters to protect their campus.

Thriller

Thriller is the scariest genre. It is a horror genre made for telling scary stories and scaring people. It is called Thriller because it thrills some people to read scary things as in ghosts or monsters. This genre may be a little scary, but it sure has a lot of blood!

Romance

Romance is a genre where love is in the air! It features usually a couple that is in deep love, but tragedy hits. Love always finds a way in this genre. one type of Romance is where people draw out their feelings and explain their love for people. Heartbreak is also in this genre. :(
