If there's a reading challenge you'd like to see next year, please let me know here.

Last year we had the Main Challenge, the Pick Your Own Theme Challenge, and Favorite HP Author Challenge. If you'd like to do those again or others, feel free to make suggestions here.

Thanks!

Have you checked out our Pick Your Own Theme Challenge, Ἀστερόπη - Asteropê? You could pretty much put your own challenge together using those themes you listed.

Asteropê (21tauri) | 82 comments Yes, Lady Danielle. I started on the challenge. I just thought this was for brainstorming future challenges this year? I noticed the pick-your-own-theme challenge ends in June. I assumed ideas here could be used for another challenge? Sorry, if I was mistaken! :-)

You're not mistaken, but I just wanted to make sure you knew we have the challenge set up. I think it would easier to combine specific themes like that into the Pick Your Own Theme challenge, since our tastes are so varied. But I'll keep the suggestions in mind. Thanks!

Howdy, Harlequin Presents Readers Challenge Participants! I'm working on the next challenge starting in July. This challenge will up the ante on themes. I would love for those who like to participate to list all the themes they like and would want to built a challenge around. I am going to include all those themes in the challenge. I am still working out the details, but I hope to give you guys a very fun, somewhat but not too challenging challenge that will last through the end of the year.

I'd love if you guys could list the themes you'd like to see by the 28th of this month.

Thanks!

Ummmm. That's all I can think of at the moment. I don't love all of them, but I figured the more the merrier and I am willing to read books of all themes. :-)
