Book clubs allow you to talk to others with similar interests not just about the books you love, but so much more. Why do you love cozy mysteries? Maybe it's the characters because they remind you of people you know. Maybe you love the setting because you love small towns or because you love learning tips and tricks for making your home feel cozy. Maybe you love culinary cozies because you love to cook. Or maybe you love the mystery itself and spend your free time solving puzzles.
Cozy Mystery Book Clubs Online
If you love cozy mysteries, chances are you share other interests with readers like yourself. And if you love to socialize, or miss socializing in this pandemic-ridden time, you might find connecting with other readers a welcome opportunity. Cozy mystery book clubs come in many forms, including clubs for writers of cozy mysteries. For today's article, we're focusing on clubs where readers can choose a book or book theme to read together and discuss over a month. These online cozy mystery book clubs are great (virtual) places to get together with like-minded mystery lovers (ranked alphabetically):

Rather than just reading one book a month with this club, suggestions are made to read books by specific themes and readers are encouraged to share what they've read in discussion boards. There are also occasional word games and other activities in the discussions. There's also a section for writers to discuss topics amongst themselves and to ask questions of readers.
Side Note: I'm not sponsored by any of these clubs, but I am a member of some of them, and I think they're all fun!
