Fiction and Literature Books

Fiction novels throughout the ages have evolved from relatively simple tales to complex, engaging stories that have captured imaginations across the world thanks to internationally famous authors like Jane Austen, Kurt Vonnegut, Haruki Murakami, and George Orwell, to name a few. While technology has changed and expanded the ways you can read this literature, the formula across various genres remains the same and continues to offer you a range of options.

How does literary fiction benefit you?

While many people will first espouse the ideals of non-fiction, it might be easy for you to overlook the fact that genre fiction can provide you with several benefits as well.

  • Reading a fictional novel can help amplify your creative spark. Unlike non-fiction, the world of literary fiction is very much open to interpretations based on your perspective as a reader. This factor allows you to not only fully engage with the story but to also consider all the various paths it might take once you've seen the initial direction.
  • Whether you're looking for a crime thriller from Michael Connelly, a pure mystery from Agatha Christie, or a romance by Nicholas Sparks, most stories have a main character that the author attempts to humanize in a variety of ways. This process allows you to feel as though you, too, are a part of that story, sharing in the adventures and experiences of the protagonist.
  • Studies have shown that reading literary fiction improves both your social perception and empathy. While this is intrinsically useful, it can also help shape your leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
  • Fiction can help improve your focus which in turn helps you tackle problems and overcome obstacles in your daily professional life.
What are common types of fiction writing?

Literature comes in all shapes and sizes, and it is divided not only by genre but also by the type of story it is. If you want to make some choices based on length, it can be helpful to know how these books are categorized. Keep in mind that any length of writing can be further divided into subgenres such as full-length novels such as the horror writing of Stephen King and novellas from Robert Louis Stevenson.

  • Poetry, like Rupi Kaur's Milk and Honey, is one of the shortest forms and often provides a variety of stories and scenarios in one volume, usually with common thematic elements and verse. Poetic literary works are separate from all other types which writers collectively refer to as prose.
  • Short stories can be one tale that is not long enough for novel or novella formats or a collection of shorter works, sometimes even including various writers that have chosen to collaborate around a common theme such as romance, horror, or thriller.
  • Novellas mark the in-between point as they are too long to be short stories but not yet long enough to be novels. Many essays and memoirs are novellas.
