Cruisin’ Thru the Cozies challenge 2022!

Posted December 28, 2021 by geograph in 2022, challenges, cozy mysteries / 1 Comment

I’m joining the Cruisin’ Thru the Cozies Reading Challenge, hosted by Socrates’ Book Reviews! It’s the twelfth year that this challenge has been hosted, but my first time joining officially. There are two ways to participate in this challenge, and I’m aiming for option B for a little bit more variety!

Option B is to read one book from each of these sub genres:

  • Culinary (anything dealing with food: restaurants, baked goods, etc)
  • Animal-related (cats, dogs, birds, etc)
  • Craft-related (any kind of hobby – knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, etc)
  • Paranormal (witches, vampires, etc)
  • Based outside the US (British, Swedish, Spanish, etc)
  • Holiday-based (set during any holiday)
  • Career-based (housekeeping, wedding planner, etc)
  • Travel mystery (on a cruise, touring another area, etc)
  • Historical mystery (any mystery not set in the present)
  • Free choice!

Here are the levels:

Level One: Snoop

  • Read one book in each cozy sub-genre (10 books total)

Level Two: Investigator

  • All the books from level 1 plus an additional 10 cozy books (total of 20)

Level Three: Super Sleuth

  • Two books from each cozy sub-genre PLUS an additional 10 cozy books of your choice (total of 30 books)

Level Four: Sleuth Extraordinaire

  • Read two books from each sub-genre PLUS an additional 20 cozy books of your choice (total of 40 books)

My goal is to be an investigator, at level 2! My original goal for cozy mysteries this year was to read 25 cozy mysteries, so I think being an investigator is the perfect challenge for me. Ideally this year I’ll post a review for every cozy mystery I read! I’m always reading cozy mysteries and thinking about the amount of copaganda in them, so that’s the different thing I’ll be bringing to the cozy mystery scene. I’ll be tracking my progress via my main challenges page!

Are you challenging yourself to read any particular genres this year?
