Cruisin' Thru The Cozies Reading Challenge 2020

Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews is hosting the tenth annual Cruisin' thru the Cozies Reading Challenge

From Yvonne:
Once again, I'm giving challengers two options - one is to read only sub-genres and the other is to read cozy mysteries of your choice. This year's cozy mystery reading challenge has two ways to participate and you can choose whichever suits you the best: 


A) Read only cozy mysteries of your choice. 
Or 
B) Read one book from these sub-genres: 

  • One from culinary (anything dealing with food: restaurants, baked goods, etc.)
  • One from animal-related (cats, dogs, birds, etc.)
  • One from craft-related (any kind of hobbies - knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, etc.)
  • One from paranormal (witches, vampires, etc.)
  • One from cozy mysteries based outside the US (example: Belinda Lawrence series (British))
  • One career-based cozy mystery (housekeeping, wedding planner, etc.)
  • One holiday-based (set during any holiday - Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines, etc.)
  • One travel mystery (character could be on a cruise, touring another area, etc.)
  • One historical mystery (any mystery not set in the present)
  • One is your choice! (freebie!)

Here are the levels you can join for either A or B…

  • Level one (Snoop) -

A) Read 10 cozy mysteries of your choice. 
B) Read one book in each of the above cozy sub-genres (total of 10 books)

  • Level two (Investigator) -

A) Read 20 cozy mysteries of your choice. 
B) Read all the books in level one plus an additional 10 cozy books of your choice (total of 20)

  • Level three (Super Sleuth) -

B) Read two books from each sub-genre in level one plus an additional 10 cozy books of your choice (total of 30 books)

  • Level four (Sleuth Extraordinaire) -
