      1. I’ve always subjectively considered cozy fiction to be works that make you want to curl up in bed with a hot chocolate/mug of milky tea.

        More specifically, usually they are set in the countryside, the plot may be bittersweet but it isn’t tragic (a lot of simple joys in daily life), and the atmosphere centers around a small domestic circle (usually in a home or in a family, sometimes close friends, but family is more obvious).
