Top 10 Tuesday — 5-Star General Fiction

28 Feb

Today’s Top 10 Tuesday topic is a Genre Freebie. As I always do, I am tweaking the prompt. 😉 I’m not featuring genre fiction, but 5-star general fiction. According to, general fiction is —

General fiction is the catch all term for novels and other literature that don’t fit into a particular genre. Romance, Western, mystery, science fiction and other genres each have a particular theme that is fitting to its classification. General works, on the other hand, don’t have enough elements of any one theme to be classified within a certain genre. The story and plot of general fiction is no less strong, and in many cases even stronger, than that of genre works.

General fiction offerings, in my experience, are well-told stories and are some of my favorite books. I hope you like my list and find a book to love!

    I love how The Nature of Small Birds has such a simple cover yet it’s really beautiful, as are a lot of other covers on your list!

    Interesting take on this week’s topic. I don’t think I’ve read very much general fiction. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
