Since so many people have commented on the interesting themes nominated for the Theme Park Year Challenge, we're going to extend it to a number of smaller event challenges at the same time.

We'll select the most popular themes and develop them as a series of smaller event challenges over the next 12 months. Hopefully it will enable more of us to complete the overall challenge. It will also create some ongoing excitement for the challenge junkies in the group.

Please nominate your 8 favourite themes from the year challenge list. If you missed the Year Challenge post, hop over to get an idea of the overall challenge here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

You are allowed to vote for up to 8 themes - one vote per theme.

I'll tally the votes on 5 November, select the first themes and ask for tasks so that we can start the challenge on 15 November.

Here is the current list of themes.
1. Dragons
2. Pirates
3. Travel
4. Magic
5. Vampires
6. Ghosts
7. 1800s
8. Fae/Faerie
9. Mythology
10. Set on the same continent
11. Espionage
12. Cops/FBI/Police/Detectives - thus Law enforcement
13. Army/knights/generals etc.
14. LGBTQ protagonists
15. Serial killers
16. Non caucasian protagonists
17. Animals
18. Ships or boats
19. Multi-perspective (needs to be more than 1)
20. South African setting
21. Gumshoe/Who-dunnit
22. Assassins
23. Children
24. Music
25. Jewellery / gemstones
26. Food/Eating
27. Airships (e.g. Dirigibles, zeppelins.... think steampunk)
28. Legends and Fairytales
29. Books and Libraries
30. Rogues

I just realized because not all tasks are going to make it through, you can just take my nominations off the list and that should be fine?

@Carolien - Lauren has updated the themes with my changed ones and one more. Should I change my vote to reflect them or are we just going to vote from the above list?
