2020 Craving for Cozies Reading Challenge - Sign Up

2020 Craving For Cozies Reading Challenge

Another challenge I always enjoy.  It's hosted by Escape with Dollycas.  I'm going with the Peckish level and will read 25 cozy mysteries.  I will keep track of them here.

Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as “cozies”, are a sub-genre of crime fiction mysteries in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. The crime-solver is an amateur sleuth, usually but not always a woman, who is thrust into the aftermath of the murder. The protagonist frequently has an occupation or hobby that brings appealing information to the reader.

The challenge runs from January 1, 2020, and ends December 31, 2020.


1. Choose the level of which you would like to participate:

Peckish – 1 – 25 Cozy Mysteries
Famished – 26 – 51 Cozy Mysteries
Yearning – 51 – 75 Cozy Mysteries
Starving – 76 – 100 Cozy Mysteries
Ravenous – 101 – 125 Cozy Mysteries
Voracious – 126 – 150 Cozy Mysteries
Overindulged – 151 – 200 Cozy Mysteries
Pigged Out – 201 or more Cozy Mysteries

You can always go up a level but you can’t go down.

  1. That sounds like a fun challenge. How do you go about finding books in that genre though? I know my local book store does not have a "cozies" section.

    1. You can search for "cozy mystery" on google or Goodreads. You'll get a ton of titles. You'd be able to find them in libraries and bookstores under "mystery".

  2. Love this can't wait to join. From Traffic Jam weekend.

  3. I'm joining up for sure. I've just recently become addicted to the Cozy Mysteries. I was happy to find this post on Traffic Jam Weekend.
