Sing, Unburied, Sing | Jesmyn Ward
post image

#HeyJune I‘ve always been told that #LucyInTheSkyWithDiamonds refers to LCD and some crazzy acid trip. So, that brought me to the stunning prose of Jesmyn Ward and her crushing family saga, Sing Unburied Sing. And there‘s a JoJo, a literal trip that involves acid, there‘s some #lovemedo & #getback too! I know many people were not fans of this novel but it was a favorite from last year.

TrishB I enjoyed reading it - thanks to you 👍🏻 2y
Cinfhen Oh good!! I couldn‘t remember if you liked it @TrishB I remember you disliked 2y
TrishB I think I‘ve become a bit of an old duffer with writing styles. When authors try to be innovative I find myself sighing just tell the bloody story.....how I felt with Red Clocks!! 2y

SleepyDragon Fun fact, "Lucy" actually was inspired by a drawing Julian Lennon drew in school of a classmate named Lucy. 2y
Cinfhen I‘ve seen that written @NeesyBeth but I‘ve also seen it rejected, too🙄either way, it makes for a good story 🤷‍♀️ 2y
SleepyDragon Well, I heard McCartney and Ringo Starr each say it during separate interviews. So if they say it's about a child's vivid imagination, that's what I'm going to believe. Even Julian remarked once that it was funny people thought it was about drugs, and he remembers having a crush on this Lucy and drawing pictures of her. "Tomorrow Never Knows" is about drugs, though. They didn't even deny that one. 2y
GypsyKat I have this book on my TBR shelf, I‘m looking forward to reading it! 2y
Cinfhen Hope you like it @GypsyKat I think you will ❤️ 2y

#HeyJune #GetBack

This is a sweet & fun book about Queen Elizabeth 'escaping' the palace one day & all of the efforts from staff to get her back before it becomes a national scandal or anything happens to her. In the book she uses a 'borrowed' navy hoodie with a skull-and-crossbones to be incognito but I thought the pic of The Queen in a hoodie, driving was funny. My dish back when I reviewed it back in 2013 was Cheddar Cheese Risotto. 😋

After a fab weekend celebrating my niece‘s bat mitzvah and hanging with good friends in nyc I am ready to #getback home and finish the tagged book - I only have 40 pages to go. Long road trips make me sad that I get carsick when I read and my fam isn‘t much for audiobooks. #heyjune

alvingregorio I'm so jealous of those who can read in a car! 2y
Blaire @alvingregorio right!?! We‘ve done 16 hours of driving - I could have finished 3 books. But I can‘t even read a news article without feeling sick. #jealous 2y

Minute-by-minute recreation? I‘ve got no experience with this book, but that sounds like it could be fascinating(ly funny).

#getback to where you once belong

Set in Alaska after the collapse of Israel, Chabon's noirish mystery tells the story of people who can't go back to where they once belonged. One of the best alternate timeline novels I've read. #heyjune

Cinfhen I‘ve always wanted to read this one and I love the photo!!!!! 2y

The protagonist drives to Phoenix rather than Tucson, Arizona, but that still fits the metre for #GetBack 😉
