2016 Crafty Cozy Challenge!! Sign up!


Welcome to the 2016 Crafty Cozy Challenge!!

After book blogging and participating in reading challenges for a couple of years now, I have decided to host my very first reading challenge . . . so welcome to the 2016 Crafty Cozy Challenge!   I of course love to read and always like to start looking for unique, fun reading challenges about this time of year – something to expand my reading, a challenge to most importantly have fun with!  So here we go . . . I hope you will join me and most importantly have tons of fun along the way!!

You may be asking yourself “what is a crafty cozy?”  A crafty cozy is any cozy mystery that is centered around the theme of crafts and crafting – i.e., stitching, knitting, crocheting, papercrafting, scrapbooking, painting, glassblowing, . . . if its any type of craft, it counts for this challenge.

Here is how the challenge works:

  1. The challenge runs from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
  2. Sign up for the challenge using the link below. Please help spread the word about this challenge by writing a post on your blog.  Please write and publish a post on your blog stating your intent to participate.  In your post please somewhere include the challenge graphic and a link back directly to this post.
  3. Come back to the blog starting in January to post your reviews via a link in the post.  At the end of every month I will randomly choose 1 entry/review for a $5 Amazon gift voucher sent by email to the recipient.  There will be a new link for reviews posted every month.
  4. Crossovers from other challenges are absolutely alright!!
  5. Don’t stress . . . and have fun reading!

What if I don’t have a blog to post reviews on?

No problem at all.  You do not need to have a blog to participate in this challenge.  I want it open to all.  Simply post a comment on this post stating your intent to participate and come back to post your review or mini-reviews of the books you have read.

Please, please have fun along the way.  Ask me any questions you may have . . .

Ready . . . set . . read . . .

And remember,

Books are life,

  1. Hi, I’m doing this. This is a great theme for a challenge. Congrats on taking the plunge into hosting a challenge for the first time. I’m hosting my first challenge next year as well. Please take a look and let me know if you are interested:

  2. This is a great idea for a challenge. I’ll be signing up. How many books do you have to read for this one or do you choose your own amount? Now you are making me think the culinary cozies need a challenge too. LOL

    I want to do this. I don’t blog. I have noticed more books lately with a crafting theme and I love crafts.
