The Hacienda | Isabel Caas

I loved this book. Beatriz marries Rodolfo Solorzano for security but when she arrives at his house The Hacienda, she quickly realizes that Rodolfo's first wife's ghost never left & she's in a lot of trouble.

My current listen isn‘t in the database (yet). It‘s a memoir about a woman coming to terms with her husband‘s job loss after 17 years of being the family provider. It‘s ok so far. #AudiblePlus #Freebie #NonFictionNovember

#AudiblePlus I thought this was going to be NF essays about women and aging, but it‘s fictionalized vignettes of many women, all ages who are either in one of two camps...total panic over aging or aging gracefully. It‘s very repetitive and not a lot of substance. It was an ok listening experience, I like Justine Bateman and her message to love the skin you‘re in was worthwhile, but I‘m glad this was a #freebie. Thanks, @Megabooks

Reagan Oh shoot! I thought it was NF too. 13mo
Megabooks Too bad you weren‘t a fan. The vignettes worked for me, but I can see how they wouldn‘t be for everyone! 13mo
Cinfhen I didn‘t dislike it, but I guess I was expecting something else @Megabooks 13mo
Cinfhen Justine Bateman interviewed real women but she wrote these vignettes as fiction @Reagan I‘m not sure why she structured the book that way. If you have #AudiblePlus it‘s worth borrowing. You can easily dip in and out of the stories...each one is like 5-7 minutes. (edited) 13mo

I listened to this short but powerful poetry collection last night before going to bed. #Freebie #AudiblePlus 🎧 Joy Harjo is the first Native American to be honored with title US Poet Laureate. Here she invokes the hardships, violence and displacement that has marked hundreds of years of Native American history, sharing her own families plight as they were forced to walk the Trail of Tears. She also blends current US policy to the narrative 👇🏼

TrishB Oh I have these ready to read 👍🏻 looking forward to it. 1y
Cinfhen I think you‘re gonna like this @TrishB Im not much of a poetry reader but it was easily accessible 1y

Megabooks Sounds good! I need to read more poetry 1y
Cinfhen It put me to sleep last night @Megabooks except the author randomly sings Native American chants and it kept startling me ( not in a good way, either 😜😘) 1y
Suet624 I love her work. 1y
Cinfhen I can see why @Suet624 her work is very accessible 1y

I‘ll admit the book dragged in places and the monotone quality of the narrator was tiring, and yet I was completely mesmerized by this story. A fascinating look at the mind of a chess prodigy and the sexism women faced in the 50‘s & 60‘s. Excited to watch the Netflix series.
#AudiblePlus #Freebie

Cinfhen And a shoutout to @Megabooks who put this #Freebie on my radar 1y
Graywacke The nextflix series is really terrific - film, music, acting. All pretty fantastic. (Haven‘t read it.) (edited) 1y
Cinfhen I can see how this would translate so well on the small screen @Graywacke my kids watched the series and they were totally hooked. (edited) 1y

Graywacke @Cinfhen yeah, it does that. I‘m watching it a second time. (And I don‘t watch tv!) 1y
Megabooks So glad you enjoyed it!! 1y
KarenUK The costumes are spectacular... apparently the designer based them on chess pieces.... 😍 1y
Tanisha_A What @Graywacke said! The TV series was captivating. Haven't read the book either! 1y
Cinfhen I‘m really excited to get to this series @Graywacke @KarenUK @Tanisha_A I kept thinking of you @Megabooks because Kentucky ya‘ll ♥️ 1y
Megabooks Yes! I liked the robotic narrator because I felt it was more authentic to the MC. She almost had a robotic mind and very flat affect from her childhood trauma. Just my opinion. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen My son who watched the series said the actress also sounded robotic when she spoke @Megabooks but sometimes it felt like Siri or Alexa was reading the book...you know what I mean??? 1y
Cinfhen I‘m sorry you‘re awake @Megabooks it‘s probably the middle of the night for you 1y
Megabooks It‘s been a long couple of days. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘ll talk about it at some point. I haven‘t watched the series yet. 1y

I know NOTHING about chess and yet I‘m riveted to this book. The audio narration is robotic sounding but somehow it‘s working for this story. I won‘t watch the Netflix series until I finish the audio first. #Pop21 #StartsWithQXZ

I like the 1950‘s setting too.

Soozee Great Netflix series. 🎬 1y
Cinfhen I‘ve heard @Soozee I can see how the series would be fascinating 1y
Moray_Reads Really enjoyed the Netflix series 1y
Megabooks It‘s a great book! 1y
Updrifting The Netflix series is SOOOOOO GOOD! 1y
