Normally this is my monthly books-I-read roundup, but March was a heckuva month over here between emergency travel for a family health scare, solo parenting kiddos, and general what-the-hell-is-happening over international affairs. I was also wrapping up Boss Babe Murder, which releases 4/26/22, which ate into my reading time. So instead of a normal wrap up, I’m also going to talk about my favorite iPhone games. Because why not?
First, What I Read:
This is a throughly modern cozy mystery set in a small college town in Oregon. There’s donuts, campus shenanigans, a hunky archaeologist, cute kitties, and a murder wrapped up in a publishing intrigue. I love the size inclusivity and diversity, too! If you like my books, I think you’ll love this first in a series, too.
I read this on a trip and it was the perfect airplane book. I’m a Lucy Foley fan, and this one lived up to her previous ones! The Paris setting is fun, the mystery kept me guessing, and I felt satisfied justice had been served at the end. Highly recommended if you like twisty thrillers!
Last, How I Distracted Myself From This Strange Reality We’re Living In:
From the Developer:
Wylde Flowers is a cozy life and farming sim with a witchy twist! Escape to a cute world of diverse folks and magical spells, as you and the coven unravel a mystery. Play as Tara, who has just moved to a charming rural island to help out her grandma and the family farm.
Basically it’s like living a paranormal cozy mystery. So much fun to play, very relaxing, and I loved the diversity. I can’t wait for a new storyline! I play this iPhone game on Apple Arcade, which is a subscription service my whole family uses to access high quality games.
From the Developer:
Help Bailey and her friends uncover the mystery of the disappearance of her best friend using your magical match-3 skills. Will you unearth the conspiracy that threatens to send the world of witches into chaos?
I’m not normally a match three person, but the storyline you play by earning magicka in the match three games is worth it! Obviiously I was feeling the witchy vibes in March!
