Books in the same genre share similarities in writing style, format or content.
For example, a Mystery novel contains a puzzle. The author provides clues to the reader while obscuring some information so that the puzzle cannot be solved too easily.
A Romance novel centers around the love story between the two main characters who fall in love and struggle to build their relationship. The happy ending with love triumphing over obstacles is the most important aspect of a Romance novel.
