For those of you who would like to introduce your friends to the Urban Fiction genre, and don’t know where to start, we got you covered. We have compiled a list of books in the Urban Fiction genre, that personify and define the genre. These books are the epitome of Urban Fiction. If you’re new to the genre, or looking for a good, drama-filled book, featuring black characters, check this list out.


I like to tell people, if you’re into shows like Love & Hip Hop and Power, or movies like Belly, then the Urban Fiction genre is most definitely for you. Urban Fiction is all about the storytelling and the diversity of the African American experience across all walks of life. There is literally a book for everyone! Why read something boring when you could be reading something that is actively engaging.
