BookBlogWriMo: Your Favorite Subgenres

BookblogwrimoHello, people of the blogosphere and beyond!  Welcome to #BookBlogWriMo day eighteen!  Today’s prompt is about our favorite subgenres.  Now, I actually had to look this one up to see if I would be listing the correct categories that are actually listed under “subgenre.”  And I learned quite a bit (thank you, Wikipedia!  What a trustworthy source.)

  • Young Adult Fiction
  • Science Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Post-Apocalyptic
  • Supernatural/Paranormal (listed under “horror” and “speculative fiction)
  • Fantasy (speculative fiction)
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Magic Realism
  • Time Travel

Now, if you want to get really specific, some of these are actually subgenres of subgenres:

Children’s Fiction

  • Young Adult Fiction

Speculative Fiction

  • Science Fiction
    •  Dystopian
    •  Post-Apocalyptic
  • Horror
    •  Supernatural/Paranormal
  • Fantasy
    •  Magic Fantasy
    •  Urban Fantasy

Anyway, sorry to get to specific… I’m just a list person XD What are your favorite subgenres?  Do we have any in common?  I have a sneaking suspicion that we do ;D

  1. Ohmygod. This is confusing, I had no idea that Young Adult was a sub-genre of a sub-genre XD But I’ve learned something, and that counts for SOMETHING 😀
    Most of my fave genres are the same as yours: Urban Fantasy, Dystopian, Sci Fi, YA, time travel and so on…
