Top Ten Halloween Themed Cozy Mysteries

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week’s list is a Halloween Freebie. I do enjoy reading spooky books at this time of year, but I also love to read fall themed cozies. I always have a stack of cozy mysteries on my night stand – I find them to be somewhat quick reads, and usually very enjoyable. With that said, here’s my list of the Top Ten Halloween Themed Cozy Mysteries. Let me know if you have a favorite Halloween mystery (cozy or not!) or leave a link to your top ten post in the comments.
