Non-Fiction Genres: Thrills

Leave a comment

Calling all non-fiction leisure readers!  Want to find new reads but not sure what to ask for? Check this non-fiction genre map out for new ways to think about non-fiction.

“Thrills” brings together subjects from across the Dewey ranges that have in common a sense of adventure, adrenaline, excitement, and daring-do.  These books range from heart-pumping tales of extreme danger narrowly escaped to a slightly more sedate, but nonetheless adventurous journey of self-discovery to the can’t-look-away weird and freaky.  Usually narrative and personal in tone, these books may also share some subject qualities of adjacent sub-genres on the non-fiction map…Uplifting (think Soul Surfer or The Blind Side), Ripped From the Headlines (127 Hours) and True Lives (Coming Clean).  Readers in the Thrills sub-genre may want to consider books from these sub-genres as well, depending on which qualities they are drawn to.

Here are some examples of new books in the Thrills sub-genres…click on each sub-genre for a link to our catalog.
