#ReadingChallenges 2018 - The Magic Square - completed!

As a member of The Book Vipers over at GoodReads, the fabulous Paul always sets a wonderful reading challenge at the start of the year! So I like to jump in both feet first, and planned to read a book that corresponded with all the squares - you can choose to do the smaller squares! - and I've happily found out today that all squares have been ticked off! Yay!!!  I always enjoy these kind of challenges as they often push me in the direction of books I'd never normally pick up!
