Cozy Mystery Challenge - list of books

Here is how I picked the list of books to try and read that month. I went through all the books I own and picked the cozy mysteries that were the first in a series that I still haven't read. Boy was I suprised by how many I had! haha! I might end up reading some before the challenge and I also doubt I will read all of these - but I will try to read from this list. I also have a couple listed that aren't the 1st in the series - but are ones I keep putting off but not sure why or will also work for the TBR challenge.

Have you considered Lawrence Block's 'The Burglar in the Library?' I love the Bernie Rhodenbarr mysteries and this is the only cozy mystery in it. It's sort of an homage to those closed room mysteries.

I just read your list. I have not posted mine yet but we have a few of the same books. I will have to send Killer In High Heels to you so you can add it to the list.

Oh, my! I haven't heard of or read any of those. My TBR list is brimming with mysteries, but none of those. Isn't that crazy?
