Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Cozy Reads (Share books that give off a cozy vibe, whether through atmosphere, setting, or some other factor. Please tell us why they’re cozy for you, too!). For me, there are a few different ways a book can create a cozy vibe for me. First, there are books like Once Upon a River and The Rules of Magic whose writing is just so atmospheric that it makes me want to cozy up in a blanket by the fire and read them. Second, there are books like The House in the Cerulean Sea and The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches that have such a strong found family element to them that just warms my heart. Third, there are books like The Maid that although not technically a cozy mystery, they certainly read like one. And lastly, there are books like those from Amy E. Reichert and Freya Sampson who are both featured twice on my list, as well as those from Poppy Alexander, whose books are just such beautiful gems that leave me grinning from ear to ear and sometimes even crying happy tears by the time I’m finished.
