Cozy Mystery Day
Observed annually on the 15th September (Agatha Christie’s birthday), Cozy Mystery Day helps us to celebrate all of the wonderful cozy mystery books, movies, television series, and authors we have in the world. Use the hashtag #cozymysteryday on social media to connect with other fans of the genre on the 15th September.
Let’s face it, there is nothing better than kicking back with a ‘cozie’ and a cup of cocoa by the fire after a rotten day at work, school, or in the daily grind of life. Cozy mystery books are the perfect pick me up for any occasion.
Why Did I Create Cozy Mystery Day? What is it all About?
I created #cozymysteryday back in 2019 because I was fed up of going into a bookshop and not having a dedicated 'cozy mystery' section and being stared at by the assistant who didn't have a clue what I was on about when I asked for a murder mystery without the blood, guts, and gore of the more 'hardboiled' mysteries. We've still got a long way to go, especially here in the UK before the genre is recognised, but I plan to keep campaigning and raising the profile of this wonderful genre. That includes books, movies, and murder mystery events.
