Magical & Cozy books you want to read now (may contain murders)

After explaining Why Do People Love Cozy Fantasy (and What Is It) I have decided to collect for you some examples of books with a cozy plot.

“This term refers to a type of Fantasy that does not contain war, murder or anything so extreme. These books are often about some character going on an adventure and have by definition, a happy ending.”

Surprisingly, many of these start with a murder but still manage to keep the atmosphere light.

You may have heard about or seen the movies of some of these books, but very few people actually deepen the story by reading the book.

I love the plots of all these books, but although they all fall under the term ‘cozy’ they are very different from each other. So read the various plots before starting one of these books because I don’t want to get a slipper on my face.


Enjoy the list of the coziest books ever.
