Craving for Cozies Challenge 2016

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, 2016 and ends December 31, 2016 Rules 1. Choose the level you wish to participate: Levels Famished – 1 – 10 Cozy Mysteries Starving – 11 – 20 Cozy Mysteries Satisfied – 21 – 40 Cozy Mysteries Almost Full – 41 – 60 Cozy Mysteries Completely Stuffed – 61 or more 2.

Once I did, the obsession became unstoppable! Credit goes to the late and much-missed Joyce Lavene and her husband Jim, and thir scrumptious Cozy GIVE THEM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT. I fell in love with the novel, the authors, and the genre. So for 2016, I choose: COMPLETELY STUFFED. - 61+ I routinely review an average of 5 or more through Great Escapes Book Tours, p,us I find additional Cozies on NetGalley, and pick up at Amazon. [In November 2015 for example, I have 12 stops through Great Escapes.] 60 would be 5 per month, so totally no problem, just lots of wonderful reading! https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7302570-mallory-heart?shelf=2016_craving-for-cozies
