2023, Reading Challenges

15 Books of Summer 2023 (All Cozy Mysteries)

20 Books of Summer is hosted by Cathy at 746 Books. The challenge runs from Thursday, June 1 until Friday, September 1. Here is the link to the challenge and sign-up page.

The following are the 15 books I plan to read. I’ve chosen 15 instead of 20 books because 15 is already overly ambitious. My list includes a good mix of traditional and self-published books:

  1. Clammed Up (Maine Clambake #1) by Barbara Ross
  2. Live and Let Chai (Seaside Café #1) by Bree Baker
  3. Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #1) by Louise Penny
  4. The Novice’s Tale (Sister Frevisse #1) by Margaret Frazer
  5. The Wonderland Murders (Cozy Craft #1) by Millie Ravensworth
  6. Curse the Day (Spellbound #1) by Annabel Chase
  7. Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody #1) by Elizabeth Peters
  8. On What Grounds (Coffeehouse Mystery #1) by Cleo Coyle
  9. Flipped for Murder (Country Store #1) by Maddie Day
  10. Littered With Trouble (Whiskers and Words #1) by Eryn Scott
  11. Berried Secrets (Cranberry Cove #1) by Peg Cochran
  12. Fowl Murder (Kenya Kanga #1) by Victoria Tait
  13. Here Today, Scone Tomorrow (Baker’s Rise #1) by R.A. Hutchins
  14. Killer Jam (Dewberry Farm #1) by Karen MacInerny
  15. Chaos in Little Leaf Creek (Little Leaf Creak #1) by Cindy Bell

Have you read any of these?

  1. The only one I’ve read is Still Life, and while it might not technically be a cosy mystery, I certainly felt that the setting was cosier than most cosies! Have a great summer of reading however many you get through! 🙂

  2. Yes, she’s very good.
    Only her very last book in the series was so so crazy dark. So well written as usual, but the topic was so very tough emotionally. I only finished it because it was written by Louise Penny. I would have DNFed it if it had been written by any other author.
    I hope the one she’s working on is less dark this time, or on a bit less sensitive topic
