The Sims 4: Realm of Magic Has Some Great Books for Sci-fi and Fantasy Readers

The Sims 4

In The Sims 4: Realm of Magic, players can send their Sims through a mysterious portal that transports them to a magical world. Once there, they can seek magical training, cast spells, summon familiars, and duel other spellcasting Sims.

Of course, if your Sims aren’t feeling that adventurous, you can also have them catch up on some reading.

The Sims - A World Without Magic

When you browse a bookshelf in The Sims 4, you’ll find a wide array of books that are vaguely similar to titles you might spot in a real-world bookstore. Since Realm of Magic is a fantasy-themed set, many of the titles you’ll find here are in the sci-fi and fantasy genre. Not so keen on J.K. Rowling? Not to worry! You can read this classic by U.K. Englishlady instead.

The descriptions are frequently silly and sometimes confusing. For example, the game appears to have two different George R.R. Martin analogs, both with two middle initials.

The selection of books is pretty robust, though not all of the titles here are clones books you can read in the real world. There are magical cookbooks, history books like Famous Spellcasters Throughout History, steamy supernatural romance novels, and even poetry collections, though we’re not sure about Professor Toot’s command of the English language.

The Sims - Which Witch Bewitched Which Witch?

Sadly, while your Sims can enjoy reading these titles, players can’t read any text aside from the descriptions. If you peer over a Sim’s shoulder while they are lost in a book, the only thing you’ll see will be incomprehensible scribbles. It’s a shame; we’d love to dig into titles like The Frequently Ending Story.

Reading vicariously through your Sims can’t really compare to curling up with a good book, but we still had a lot of fun exploring our Sim’s bookshelves. From The First Unicorn to The Chronicles of Rodick, the amusing selection of titles makes us feel better about giving our Sims the bookworm trait. The next time you’re struggling to decide what to read, you might want to take a look at what your Sim is reading.
