Genre , as you might guess from the way it sounds, comes straight from French, a language based on Latin. It's closely related to genus , a word you may have encountered in biology class. Both words contain the gen- root because they indicate that everything in a particular category (a genre or a genus) belongs to the same "family" and thus has the same origins. So the main genres of classical music would include symphonies, sonatas, and opera, and the major genres of literature would include novels, short stories, poetry, and drama. But within the category of novels, we could also say that detective novels, sci-fi novels, romance novels, and young-adult novels are separate genres.
The Brooklyn Rail ' s Scott Beauchamp proposes a parallel between punk's "No Future" stance and its active "raw energy of dissatisfaction" deriving from the historical lineage of Dada dystopia, and vaporwave's preoccupation with "political failure and social anomie".  Vaporwave's stance is more focused on loss, the notion of lassitude, and passive acquiescence.  Beauchamp writes that "vaporwave was the first musical genre to live its entire life from birth to death completely online".  Cultural theorist Dominic Pettman , professor of Culture and Media at the New School for Social Research , notes that the internet causes users to have micro-experiences of "hypermodulation".  Beauchamp suggests that expressions of hypermodulation inspired both the development and downfall of vaporwave. 
Whether the covers are pink or black, have pastel-coloured dust jackets bearing whimsically retro images of cocktail glasses, trendy purses, and spiky heels, authors believe the genre has a viable future because story lines and characters mirror society. The books are fun. They are realistic. The characters are recognizable, often featuring a contemporary heroine that women of today can relate to. Often the protagonists are addressing an issue of today or even ‘the modern female experience’, whether that is single life, married life, office politics, playground politics or all of the above. The term 'romantic comedy' or 'wit lit,' might even be used?
