Types Of Fiction Books


There are many different types of fiction books that can help you unlock your creativity and provide endless possibilities for writing stories. Some of the most common types of fiction include romance, science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, and comedy. Each type offers something unique; from exploring love and adventure in a romance novel to fighting an evil villain in a fantasy story. Whatever type of story you wish to write, there is sure to be a genre that fits!


Historical Fiction


Set in the past, historical fiction allows you to use creative license to retell a story from a new perspective. These stories can range from major events such as wars and battles to life as normal for everyday people during different time periods. While you’re writing your book, you should also be researching important facts about the specific time period. This research will help make sure that your book remains historically accurate and make it easier for readers to get lost in your narrative. Examples are Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood,  Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie




In fantasy, you can explore/create different worlds, systems, and histories, and invent new creatures and stories that are limited only by your own creativity. Even if you’re writing a contemporary story with fantastical elements, like dragons or magical powers, fantasy fiction allows readers to suspend disbelief to experience something completely out of the ordinary. Whether you’re writing high fantasy, urban fantasy or anything in between – let yourself go wild! Examples of popular fantasy books are Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Science Fiction


Science fiction is an intriguing form of fiction that sometimes explores other planets, alternate universes, and new technologies. It combines facts and possibilities to create stories and situations set in the future or on another planet entirely.  Science fiction often covers topics such as space travel, post-apocalyptic societies, alien races, time travel, and interdimensional portals; it gives readers a chance to imagine what the future might hold. Writers of science fiction enjoy creating unique plotlines with imaginative technology or alternative frameworks for human societies. Examples include The Martian by Andy Weir, RoseWater by Tade Thompson

Mystery/Suspense Novels


From mysterious mysteries to nail-biting suspense thrillers, these books provide readers with hours of excitement as they immerse themselves in a world filled with secrets, lies, and unexpected plot twists. Whether you’re writing a murder mystery, a psychological thriller, or another type of crime fiction novel, readers won’t be able to put your book down until all of their questions have been answered and the plot has been resolved. Unlock your imagination and bring your mystery/suspense novel to life—your readers will thank you for it!
