How do you spend your money?
 I spend my money on _______.
1. novel books, poem books, essay books
2. novels, poems, essays.
(In the blank, which ones are suitable, #1 or #2? Thank you.)

#2 because novels are books

2 is correct; 1 is not.
A couple of alternatives for #1, however, are these, but they're awkward:
... books of poems.
... books of essays. 
# 2 is better.
It would be better to say:
I spend my money on books which include novels, poems, and essays. 
Thank you.
What about storybooks, science books, or history books?
1. I spent my money on story.
2. I spent my money on storybooks.
(Which one do I have to use?) 
In this case, #2 is correct.
There are different types of books, of course. Collections that have stories, poems, drama, etc., in them are called anthologies.
Science and history books are usually (but not always) textbooks.
