CTMH genre?

Post by KC8 » 05 May 2018, 12:49

Dumb question from a newbie: What is the C/T/M/H genre of books?
I haven't seen this asked in the forum, so I'm thinking it's something I should know already! :|

It is a grouping of Crime, Thriller, Mystery, and Horror. :tiphat:
You're nobody's rainbow.
You're nobody's princess.
You're nobody's doorway but your own,
and the only one who gets to tell you

how your story ends is you.

Ah, thank you for the clarification. I was wondering as well. Is there a key for these abbreviations? Just wondering, since I like these type of books but a lot of other kinds as well. Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure of exactly what you mean by a key? Thank you. :tiphat:

I was hoping for a list of abbreviations. But as I’ve browsed, most of the genres seem to be spelled out other than C/T/M/H.

Ah, I see. :tiphat:

Yeah, I found it a little cumbersome when I first joined, but I just figured it was because that was the only major combination (being four separate genres).


Now it just seems normal. :lol:
You're nobody's rainbow.
You're nobody's princess.
You're nobody's doorway but your own,
and the only one who gets to tell you

Ohhhh I didn't know what it was either. Also I really like that rainbow-colored quote, it's extremely cute and inspiring.
