2018 Reading Challenge #2 - Magic Square



I have decided to join in with another Reading Challenge for 2018 and this one is courtesy of the wonderful The Book Vipers - GoodReads group and looks set to test us all - mainly in searching out titles to fit all the topics! I may be requesting suggestions for some of them so get your thinking caps on please! I need help... in more ways than one!!

So the challenge is to read a book that fits the titles below! There are 3 levels that can be done - 9 squares, 16 squares or the full 25! I'm aiming for the 25 so we will see how we go!



Have already started a little looksie through my shelves to see what books I can get read that fit the topics! Here's my initial list - with a number of gaps! - so hopefully I can complete the challenge!


A Classic  - lots of candidates on my bookshelves so will choose later!

A Book About Money - struggling with this one so any suggestions welcome!!

A Book Under 100 Pages - not found any on my shelves yet so might have to go shopping!

A Book Of Poems - very poor poetry knowledge so where should I start?!

Free Choice

A Book Set In Another Country -  The Stolen Bicycle by Wu Ming-Yi

A Translated Book - On The Bright Side by Hendrik Groen

True Or Fictional Crime - 

A Book With An Animal In The Title - THE CROW ROAD by IAIN BANKS

A Book About Books  - VILLAGE BOOKS by CRAIG MCLAY
Science Fiction Or Fact  - READY PLAYER ONE by ERNEST CLINE

So any suggestions or help you have for me would be most welcome! Free choices will probably be from my NetGalley shelves - I WILL get that under control in 2018!!  I will carry on my search and may even end up changing some of my initial choices - that's what normally happens! - but i'm looking forward to this challenge and trying a few different kinds of books!!
