Cruisin' thru the Cozies Reading Challenge Progress Post



I’ve been getting back into cozy mysteries and was looking for some recommendations when I stumbled upon Cruisin' thru the Cozies Reading Challenge hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews and knew I had to join.


It looks like it’s going to be such a fun challenge and will help me branch out into different cozy mystery sub-genres.


Here’s the levels:

Ø Level one (Snoop) - Read one book in each of these cozy sub-genres (total of 10 books) 

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

Ø Level two (Investigator) - Read all the books in level one plus an additional 10 cozy books of your choice (total of 20)
Ø Level three (Super Sleuth) - Read two books from each sub-genre in level one plus an additional 10 cozy books of your choice (total of 30 books)
Ø Level four (Sleuth Extraordinaire) - Read two books from each sub-genre in level one plus an additional 20 cozy books of your choice (total of 40 books) 

Timeframe: January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017 

Rules:

-         Any format Counts

-         If you can't find or don't want to read a certain sub-genre, you can switch it out for another one of your choice. However, this can only be done one time.

I’m playing it safe and aiming for Level One: Snoop. If  I manage those in a timely fashion, I may try to go for Level Two.
