Afternoon #botmbuddyreaders! ♥️📚

Questions 1,3,5, and bonus will be on my page; Questions 2 and 4 on @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks !! #botmbuddyread

TheBookHippie This is an interesting one for me. Is it to bring everything to light for the path to peace? 1y
Christine11 I‘ve been trying to figure out the titles meaning ! Maybe the Unburied part is in reference to JoJo and Leonies abilities to see the dead ? Interested to see what everyone thinks because I‘m really not sure 🤔 1y
JaclynW I've wondered about the significance of the title. There is a lot of singing in the novel. Jojo sings to calm Kayla. Kayla sings to the spirits in the trees. Ritchie sings. Singing brings people together. Singing can bring peace and calm. It's comforting. Maybe it's as @TheBookHippie said above. 1y

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I think she is letting everyone “sing “ and be free. All of the African Americans, especially in the south, who have been wronged through racism, slavery, and any form or prejudice or other horrible cruelty... 1y
Christine11 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yes ! I definitely think there‘s a huge correlation in the book between singing and freedom of the soul 1y
kspenmoll On literal level, Richie heard the singing across the waters but cannot join or reach there. He sings too, and JoJo can hear him, but it is a keening; he cannot shake the prison until JoJo comes. He thinks hearing his story will unbury him. He burrows into the earth at night, unable to leave the earth. Just my thoughts; the title‘s meaning is not totally clear to me 1y
kspenmoll @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That is a good point; often their songs had meanings their white slave owners did not understand- 1y
suvata I took to mean that I you‘re still alive, sing the praises of those who have died in the fight for equality and justice. 1y
TheBookHippie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks sing all the atrocities so they can be heard. 1y
Valeka I may be wrong but I believe it was mentioned that Mam could hear people‘s inner songs. Maybe the title means that the unburied, those still on earth, should continue singing their songs (living their lives). 1y
jhod Also the man Richie escaped with also spoke about singing to get home (I forget his name) 1y
Sydsavvy @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks love that! I also think it means tell the stories of the dead. Feel free to sing about the atrocities. Singing, telling our stories, is ultimately the only thing that frees us. This also answers another question. Only when the stories are sung and acknowledged are the dead free to fly away. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Sydsavvy yes!!!! Love this!!! ❤️❤️ 1y
EllieDottie @Sydsavvy I agree! I tied it to when Mam was talking about how some people where killed in such violent ways that even God couldn‘t watch and that is how people become ghosts (I interpreted these people to be the Unburied). I love all these comments it makes the reading experience so much richer! (edited) 1y

CoffeeAndABook Hey @bookloo just came across this post researching Tin Man!! And I‘m so intrigued by your study notes in the background! May I ask what you‘re studying? And is there ANY chance you‘d let me see the whole page? It looks like a lot of stuff that really interests me!! And if you‘d rather not, that‘s fine too 😉👋 1y
bookloo Haha! Hey @CoffeeAndABook!! These are actually reminders of self care! I have anxiety so it‘s very easy for me to forget to do basic things for myself. I found it on Tumblr, printed it out, and taped it to my desk so I can always see it as I‘m studying for other things. :) Here is the link if you would like it: http://mlstudies.tumblr.com/post/137899439759/free-printable-as-per-request-here... 1y
CoffeeAndABook @bookloo Ha! That‘s such a great chart, love the little visuals. Is the little introvert floating in a matchbox with a laptop? 😉 And yes, some of the suggestions speak to me, too, specially the ones about Rest & Recharge. Man, you think it‘s so obvious but it‘s so easy to forget. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this!! And have a fine weekend with lots of me-moments ☀️🙋🏼‍♀️ 1y
