2021 Craving for Cozies Reading Challenge


I avoided reading challenges this year, which ended up being good thing, considering all that 2020 entailed. That said, I am making some blogging changes for 2021--hopefully short-lived, but we will see how that goes--and want to tackle a new challenge. 

Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book is hosting this challenge just for fun. 

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, 2021, and ends December 31, 2021.


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


  • 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

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