The Bride Collector | Ted Dekker

For the first time since coming here, Brad considered the possibility that he had entered a world where the minds were not sick when compared with his, simply greater - and learning to cope. Like Paradise, they were so powerful they required special systems that lesser minds, like his, did not. #teddekker #thebridecollector #mentalillness #gifted #greatminds #misunderstood #mentallyillgenius

#WanderingJune #FlyAway This is a story about Beryl Markham, the pioneering aviator in the early 1900s.
@Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

BarbaraBB Well chosen! ✈️ 4w
Cinfhen I was originally thinking about this book #GreatMinds 4w
LRSmith I love her memoir—as fascinating for what she leaves out as for what she includes.... 4w

CoffeeNBooks @LRSmith I enjoyed this book. I heard that West in the Night is really good and tells more of her story, but I haven't read it yet 4w
LRSmith @CoffeeNBooks Hemingway (jerk though he was) expressed admiration for Markham‘s writing. It really is beautifully done. 4w
Jaimelire I enjoyed this book. 4w

BookishTrish Also, @Andrea4, please join us! 1mo
StayCurious I haven't read any of these but the ones that stand out are: Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors, and The Quintland Sisters (this took place right outside my hometown so it's always fascinated me). 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I have not read any of them. 1mo
FantasyChick I am instantly drawn to The Quintland Sisters! Also, I had to laugh because I almost chose Alice for one of my picks 😂😂 #GreatMinds 1mo
Andrea4 @BookishTrish thanks for inviting me in 💗💗💗 Alice looks awesome! Meddling kids is on my tbr, I like Kate Morton, and PP&OF seems up my alley. 1mo

Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal | G. Willow Wilson

#Hoopla #pop19 #ABookWithSomeoneWithASuperPower While I generally do not appreciate or enjoy comics, I thought Ms. Marvel was well done. Nice illustrations, good characterization, fun plot. Only 3 more prompts left for me!!!

StayCurious I enjoyed this one 1mo
KarenUK I read Ms. Marvel for this prompt too! 1mo
4thhouseontheleft Only 3 more? Way to go! Which 3? I have 15 more to go, and I plan on reading Vol 8 of Ms Marvel for this prompt! What did you read for the monastery/convent/abbey prompt? 1mo

Cinfhen I‘m not doing the advanced @4thhouseontheleft only the 40 prompts!! I have #ghoststory ( which I‘m in the middle of) #reread ( which is annoying) and #publishedposthumously 👇🏼 (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen I‘m thinking of reading 1mo
Cinfhen It was fun @StayCurious but I don‘t think I‘ll be reading further 😁 1mo
4thhouseontheleft I‘ll be using East of Eden for #reread. 😁 Anne Frank would be a good pick for posthumous! I almost went with Emily Dickinson (many of her poems were published posthumously), until I realized my reread of this works for that prompt: (edited) 1mo
4thhouseontheleft I really like the advanced prompts this year. Except for the abbey/convent prompt. 1mo
Cinfhen Maybe I‘ll check them out @4thhouseontheleft since it‘s only June. 1mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #AllTheYoungDudes #My80sDreamTeam #OnceAnEightiesGirlAlwysAnEightiesGirl
The best cast ever and a brilliant film about class and friendship. Book is equally wonderful. An American classic❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ @vivastory they need to produce The Outsiders, The Musical 🎶Don‘t you think that would be amazing ⁉️❓⁉️‼️ FYI: Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze🤩😍🥰

gradcat Sooo cool! I loved “The Outsiders,” both the book and the movie, and all I can say is “Yes, Yes, Yes” to an Outsiders musical! Fabbo! 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks @gradcat I obviously have wayyyy too much free time but I think my Outsiders, The Musical is a Million dollar idea 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑 4mo
Bklover Not a bad idea. I can see a musical. It would work! 4mo
