Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as “cozies”, are a sub-genre of crime fictionmysteries 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.

  1. Just signed up for the challenge! I have so many cozies on my Kindle app just waiting to be read, this will give me the perfect excuse! 😛 Here is my blog post link:

    I’ve never been good at figuring out how to use those buttons everyone seems so fond of, and not sure where I’d put it on my WordPress site anyway, so I guess my sharing the challenge everywhere and posting about it on my site will have to do.

    With all the other books I plan to read this year, assuming I get them all read, I should easily be able to make Yearning level, but we’ll see.
