The New York Times survey of more than 1,000 book reviewers has found that the most popular genre of fiction is romance and it’s becoming increasingly popular among younger readers.
The top ten most popular genres are horror, science fiction, fantasy, crime fiction, mystery, romance, suspense, and romance novels.
Among the top 20 most popular books in the top ten, the most commonly read are Alice Munro’s The Catcher in the Rye and James Patterson’s The Book Thief.
Other popular genres, which include thrillers, science-fiction, horror, romance and fantasy, are among the top 10 bestsellers.
The survey found that romance has the biggest surge of new readers, with 1,500 more people buying a book a week from this year through the end of February than last year.
Romance authors like L.A. Reid and J.K. Rowling have been the biggest winners of the genre boom, as more young people are discovering romance as a new way to engage with fiction.
The NYT survey also found that new readers are gravitating to romance, even as it’s more popular among older readers.
More than half of all the people who read romance are 18 to 34, with one-third of them female.
The most popular authors on the romance scene are Cormac McCarthy and Cormac MacCormac, with the highest average reading scores.
The authors also scored highest on self-confidence and writing skills.
The latest Nielsen BookScan survey also showed that women are becoming more active in the genre.
Nearly half of female readers are readers, while a quarter of male readers read romance.
The New Yorker’s Margaret Atwood and her partner, Jane Goldman, published their book, The Handmaid’s Tale, in September and have become the first women to win a Nebula award for fiction.
“I’ve been reading romance for the last 20 years,” Atwood said.
“It’s just like anything else.
It’s all about being true to yourself, which is why it’s so fascinating.”
The authors were also surprised by the fact that romance is gaining a foothold in American popular culture.
“Romance is a genre that has been around for a long time, but its popularity has been rising,” Atlyot said.
“[The popularity of romance] is just the tip of the iceberg.
People really feel connected to it.
It just feels really good to be in the position of being able to talk about it.”
