(Day 23 - #SoClose)

*My new favorite poet, Charles Bernstein, published the tagged book just last year. The pericope above is from the poem, “Catachesis, My Love,” which is included in the book, “Near/Miss.” The song title “So Close” put me in mind of near misses, hence the book I chose for this prompt.

Cinfhen I LOVE everything about this post ❤️ 4w
rohit-sawant Wow, this is terrific! 💙 4w

#SoClose (Featrued in Enchanted)

Starting with my reread of Good Omens. This was my first Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett after NG's awesome collection, Fragile Things, and it was such a blast. I've been wanting to revisit this, and what better time with the online premiere of the adaptation so close. Super excited!

gradcat Great post, & thanks! I‘m having loads of trouble figuring out the movies that these songs are in. So, yay! You helped me out here!! 😂 4w
rretzler Super excited for the show as well! 4w
saresmoore Ooh! When is the premier? I want to squeeze in a reread, too. 4w

Yeah, we got so close, so close to love
But you had to go and mess it up
Was it all too much or just not enough?🎶

Carly and James had a troubled relationship which, according to Carly, had much to do with James‘ heroin and mistresses. They were #soclose to love once...

We're so close to reaching that famous happy end almost believing this one's not pretend
Let's go on dreaming for we know we are
So close, #SoClose and still so far

Day 23 of #MayMovieMagic with #SoClose

Cinfhen I‘m not familiar with these books but they look lovely 😊 💕 4w
marleed @Cinfhen Oh try one. The first set was a trilogy and then several years later, a second trilogy. The book‘s format forces you to sit back and enjoy as you pull letters out of envelopes to follow their trail and wonder if they‘ll ever actually meet. 4w
rohit-sawant This sounds like a fun read! Love the covers 💙 4w

marleed @rohit-sawant I was obsessed with the original trilogy but missed the second set until a couple years ago - I must have been buried in chapter books at the time! 4w
charl08 I only read one but loved the little letters. Reminded me of reading 4w
marleed @charl08 Ohh, I have to check that out! 4w
allureofbeauty Oh I love that series so much. It‘s one of my all time favorites. 4w
marleed @allureofbeauty Isn‘t it just the best! 4w

Hyeonseo grew up in North Korea, #soclose to the Chinese border that her brother would play in the river with boys from the other side. Her decision to cross the river was almost accidental, little more than a teenage prank, a young person quite literally pushing at boundaries and wanting to explore their world. But it had a lifetime of consequences for her and her family.


Cinfhen Sounds harrowing 4w
RachelO @Cinfhen Surprisingly, I think she had a fair bit of luck on her side. Almost every decision she made could have turned out a whole lot worse. Her poor mother, though! 4w
Cinfhen I‘ve already stacked but interested to read her journey 4w

#MayMovieMagic I‘m #soclose to finishing this audiobook. It‘s a really in depth look at the behind the scenes actions and dealings of NBC, Must See TV, Friends and the writers and producers who worked to create the iconic show. Totally recommend for anyone who grew up on 90‘s television 📺

marleed That sounds interesting - both the book and way to go on the title. 4w
Cinfhen It was really good @marleed #Nostalgic 4w
rohit-sawant Echoing @marleed! Looking forward to your review. 4w
