CTMH genre?

Post by KC8 »

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! :|

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:

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

THANK YOU for asking that question! The C/T/M/H notation flummoxed me, too!
