Cozy Mystery Challenge

I planned on reading 20 books for the challenge. I read 17 of them. I probably would have finished another one. But I received a non cozy book from the library that I had to read and return. I also ran into a couple of cozy's that took me forever to read them. Not sure if it was me, the book or if I was burnt out from reading cozy's. I think for the one in April that I will not choose as many so that I can also read some regular mysterys.

I enjoyed this challenge and cleared out some books. I will have to do some book shopping and fill in the holes.

I have had my fill of cozies for awhile. Now it is back to thrillers and mysteries.

I can't believe you read 17! wow!
I got the burnt out feeling last year when I did this challenge, that's why I didn't read as many. I love cozies, but sometimes you need a break.

I think I need to read a few cozy's and then switch to a mystery or thriller.

I am glad you did the challenge. I cleared out some books that have been sitting here for awhile. And discovered some new authors that I love.
