Musing Mondays - Comfy Cozy Reading

If you'd like to play along on Musing Mondays, just click the button above to join in.

This week’s musing asks…

What’s your favorite “cozy” book — and, by that, I’m meaning “curl-up-on-a-cold-day comfort read“? Or, if you don’t have a particular book, what genre do you most feel like reading when the weather starts to turn colder?

My answer...

It's not a particular book for me, it's a specific genre. I love my cozy mysteries. They always make me want to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate under the blankets in bed. I read them throughout the year, but winter, in particular, always feels like the perfect time to read them to me.

The other type would have to be a romance, but it would have to be one that is set during a storm or set during the winter. Those give me "warm fuzzies" too.

  1. I like cozy mysteries on cold rainy days also.

  2. My choice would probably be old faithfuls, preferably children's books. The Borrowers, Anne of Green Gables and The Children of Green Knowe.

  3. I have several "cozy" books. Check out what I am Musing for Monday.

  4. Well, have been feeling like hell for 5 days now so yesterday I was all said and read a harlequin, I guess that answers it

  5. I'll bet you'll have a cat or two curled up next to you, too! LOL

    Love the cat's perfect for a cold day, especially a Monday.

  6. I can read Graphic novels. Cozy for me!

    Right now, I am not reading anything. Massive slump!

    Here is my Monday post!

  7. I love cozy mysteries too! Though I prefer to read them in the summer. = )

  8. Love the photo!

    My cozy reading is usually fiction of some kind. Fun question this week!

  9. while I like 'cozies'...sometimes...I would not want a steady diet of them. No, I agree on the genre, but I like a much wider variety.

  10. There's definitely something wonderful about reading a mystery on a cold winter day!

  11. My answer would be mysteries too, although more along the traditional lines.

  12. Mysteries are great for cold weather days.

    Here's my MM this week:

  13. I do enjoy a good mystery, especially on a cold winter night.

  14. I read classics.. generally children's classics. Favorites include A Little Princess and the Secret Garden, Narnia... generally shorter, easy reads if I'm looking for a comfort factor.
