Today’s topic normally should have been “Books I read on vacation”, but I wasn’t feeling that one. So I’m going rogue today and wanted to focus instead on a genre I just recently realized that I LOVE, and that’s cozy fantasy. Basically, cozy fantasy is fantasy but with lower stakes. It’s light-hearted and fun. They are comforting reads.
All of the below books have the cozy fantasy vibe to me. And they also have one more element, which I usually also need in my books, and that’s a romance aspect. Some may have a bit more romance than others, but it’s always there.
So let’s get into it!
The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston (* more romance than fantasy, but there are ghosts so a paranormal aspect…) | The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna | The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen | The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune | So This Is Ever After by F.T. Lukens | Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree | Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune | The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling | Payback’s a Witch by Lana Harper | Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Every time I see that title by Ashley Poston on a list, I think I need to give it a closer look. The cover art always intrigues me. 🙂
I hope you’ll enjoy it if you decide to give it a try!
Well I come to the conclusion that I love cozy fantasy romance Lindsey!
It’s my new favorite genre haha 🙂
Cozy Fantasy is a new term to me. I loved The House in the Cerulean Sea and The Ex Hex is on my TBR. I will take a look at a few other ones as well!
I only heard the term recently too but I’m already in love 🙂
Love this list! I never thought of a cosy fantasy. I might have to add that as a genre goal! I loved The House in the Cerulean Sea and have just finished The Ex Hex which I also enjoyed!
Have a great week!

I’ve recently fallen IN LOVE with cozy fantasy!
It definitely sounds like my sort of thing! I must research it more!
I’m on a huge library waitlist for Legends & Lattes and can’t wait to read it!

It’s on top of my TBR too, I heard nothing but raves!
I have The Very Secret Society of Very Irregular Witches on my TBR.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
I loved that one, hope you will too!
The only one I’ve read from this list is The Dead Romantics, but I love the idea of cozy fantasy romances!
It’s definitely my latest obsession 🙂
I do but I need to read more of it. I have So This Is Ever After to hopefully get to soon.

Hope you’ll enjoy So This Is Ever After!
I’m currently reading Payback’s a Witch and really enjoying that one. I wanna read all of these!
Payback’s a Witch was great, I want to read the sequels too!
Have you created a new sub-genre? And yet of the couple I’ve read in your list, that seems to fit. Cerulean Sea was delightful and I really enjoyed Sorcery of Thorns. Dead Romantics on my list. Hope you have a terrific week and find time to read a good book.

Haha, I think the genre already existed, I just only realised and fell in love with it very recently 🙂 Thanks!
I see so many raves for Legends & Lattes. I need to give it try.
It’s on top of my TBR as well!
I loved seeing Klune’s books on here!
I didn’t realise before, but his books definitely count as cozy fantasy.
Going rogue is sometimes for the best, now I have more things to add to my TBR! 😊 I love cozy fantasy, but I haven’t read very much in the genre yet.

Always happy to add to the TBR 😀
I’m really liking both cozy fantasy and cozy SF lately. Legends and Lattes I hear so many good things about.
Cozy fantasy is definitely my new obsession 🙂
I love your topic this week and have read and loved half of your list, so I clearly need to go read the other half, haha. 🙂
Haha, I’m glad you’re also a fan of cozy fantasy romances 🙂
YES! This is such an awesome list. I love cosy fantasies and definitely need more of them in my life. Honestly, the first one I thought of was Legends & Lattes because it’s the best 😍 But I also love Klune’s and Rogerson’s books and I can’t wait to read Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches soon!
Thanks! Hope you’ll enjoy Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches 🙂
Nearly every one of those is on my TBR – apparently I’m quite interested in trying cozy fantasies!
I hope you’ll enjoy all of these!
[…] to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s topic is all about cozy reads. Since I did a topic on cozy fantasy romance just a few weeks ago, today I wanted to focus on another type of cozy reads and that is… […]
