Flowers in the Attic | Virginia Andrews
post image

Happy V.C. Andrews Day! Flowers In The Attic was first published on this day in 1979, forty years ago! I'll admit, I first heard about this one on the #MyFavoriteMurder podcast, but it would seem that most booklovers/crime junkies got their start with it, smuggled copies from the shelves of their parents or older siblings... I haven't given it a go yet. Should I? 😅 #SSDGM

Caroline2 I remember reading this as a teenager and it blew my mind!!! 🤯 not sure what I‘d think about it now though! 🤔 1mo
BookwormM I also read as a teenager and loved it scared to revisit in case it doesn‘t hold up 1mo
Bookwormjillk I read it Asa teenager too, but like others I‘m not sure how it would hold up now. 1mo

Texreader This book (and I read all the sequels) has definitely stayed with me in the decades since reading it. Definitely unforgettable 1mo
MrsMalaprop Me too @caroline2 @bookwormm @Bookwormjillk @coffeecatsbooks @texreader Reckon I was about 13 when I read this & the rest of the series. So risqué & in hindsight quite inappropriate. Definitely would not want to read them now, but had quite an impact on teenage me! ? 1mo
cherinium I had the same experience. Read all the VC Andrews books during my teen years. I couldn't get enough of them then. This is by far the best one, though. I think it would be worth checking out. After reading this series, the others are rather formulaic. 4w
JulAnna I am the same as many others here-I read this as a teenager (many years ago and probably way too young), and it has stuck with me through the years. 2w

2 ⭐️- Re-reading books I loved is kind of awesome - like Harry Potter, Sara Donati‘s Into the Wilderness, The Help ... Aaaand sometimes it‘s not so awesome.

I loved (much to my mom‘s chagrin and outright disapproval) the Flowers in the Attic series as a teen. After re-reading it recently, in my 40‘s, it is apparent that 13-year-old Laurie and 40-ish Laurie disagree on what makes a good read.

My review: http://bit.ly/FlowersintheAtticReview

marleed That‘s funny. I found a book that had piles of HS memories for me. you and me, babe by Chuck Barry (gong show fame). My dad let me have his book of the month pick and then it became our tag line since I was the last to leave his nest. I‘m afraid I‘d taint my wonderful memory if I did a reread! 1mo
JacqMac I have great memories of this, too. And my mom‘s great displeasure. Lol I won‘t be rereading for fear of ruining it. 1mo
Bakingbookworm Ya, I kind of wish I hadn‘t reread it. I have fond memories as a teen and totally understand why my mom didn‘t want me reading it. 😳 1mo

First published in 1979 , the series kept its popularity with young teens (and adults)way into the 80s .V.C.Andrews wrote the first 4 before her death from breast cancer .It was a closely guarded secret for years that the books were ghost written after that .

Hooked_on_books A classic! 2mo

Lcsmcat Gertrude Chandler Warner (Boxcar Children) isn‘t even a person. There is a stable of authors who wrote/write those books. One of them was in my sister‘s writing group in Chicago. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @Lcsmcat That is so cool. Wasn't the original book the true author, or was it always like Keene and Dixon. 2mo
Lcsmcat @LibrarianRyan My understanding from my sister was that there never was a Gertrude- it was just a made up name. But I admit I never researched it. One of my kids once had a signed copy of one, but I don‘t know if it survived. 2mo
jmtrivera @LibrarianRyan I looked it up when seeing Martin at National Book Fest in August. She wrote the first 30 (ish? Might be 35) BSCs, then it was taken by ghostwriters. I also looked up Gertrude Chandler Warner once, ages ago, and I think it was really her for the first 19 Boxcars or so. I always find these stories so interesting! 2mo

It was only suppose to be for a few days... weeks... just a couple months...

She promised her four beautiful children they wouldn‘t have to stay in the locked room together for long. Just until her father forgave her and placed her back into his will.

Then they would be free. Not only that - they would be rich!

But until then, the four children must never be seen or heard. For now, they can only have the attic.

Loved every dirty detail!

“... the twins recovered. Not in nine days... in nineteen days.”

Who else has read Flowers in the Attic? When her children were sick, should the mother have taken them to a doctor, despite the grandmother forbidding it?

Personally, I feel like this is the first time in the book, the mother really showed she is beginning to TRULY put herself first, and children second...

avgeyer I snuck this book when I was like 12 years old, I felt VERY rebellious 😂 I dont remember much about it though, I think I need to revisit it! 3mo
KristenDuck @avgeyer I‘m really enjoying it so far. Probably will feel different for you if you revisit as an adult!! 3mo
TheLudicReader I LOVED that book as a teen. It felt so naughty to me. I blame it for my incest kink. (In fiction, not real life. 😁) 3mo

Butterfinger You have to read the whole series to figure out the mom. It has been 25 years; if I remember correctly the first four books are about the 4 siblings. And the 5th is the prequel. 3mo

I have been wanting to read VC Andrews' books for the longest time, and I am so glad that I did. After receiving an ARC for Beneath The Attic, I decided to start reading her novels. I don't know what it is, but I cannot seem to put them down. The story is so intriguing and twisted, it's like a soap opera. There are so many series she has written and I cannot wait to read them all!

VC Andrews is an author that really shows the ugly side of family. From incest to moleststation, love children, inappropriate interactions between adults and children, secrets, lies, and the depravity money causes. For those who have watched the movie and have not read the book you are seriously missing out. The movie shows not enough character background. Also Flowers is just one book in a series. WARNING, if you get hooked there‘s a lot to read.

Godislove Thank you very much for those who liked my post. 3mo

Finally finished the book, and with that I‘m clocking in 24hrs 45mins for the #24B4monday Readathon. I actually enjoyed the book a lot more than I was expecting too, and may pick up the second book, if I find it at a thrift store. Dark, dreadful, and oddly sexual for a book that MANY kids read in elementary school. I remember a few of my classmates reading this in grade 6 🙈

rretzler I read the series when it came out (except the last which I haven‘t read) and they were disturbing, yet well-written. Like an accident where you want to look away and you know you shouldn‘t keep looking but you have to look anyway. I was a teenager then, so I don‘t know how I‘d feel about them as an adult. 4mo

I decided to stop in the thrift store before I went to Starbucks. I picked up 3 books for $7 total, and now I‘m going to sit and relax for a while, while my phone charges. I also found out first hand, that it‘s roughly 13,000 steps to the bookstore... so that‘s incentive to get out and get moving more.

Believe it or not, I have never read V.C Andrews, but I‘ve always wanted to. I‘ve been warned that it‘s a little dark, so we‘ll see what I think.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a five star book for me. Even though it was written more like a Dickens novel and I had to acquire a taste for the style, it was NOT lacking in ANY since. I did eventually figure things out but not as quickly as I normally would have. This book is full of twists and turns and is quite gruesome in some parts. It shows how quickly money can rot a heart. This is a MUST read. #nothingshortofamazing

I watched this film as a teenager never realising until recently it was a book. I was sucked into this on the opening scenes, theattic where the paper flowers blow sucked me in and wouldn't let me out in the same way as the characters couldn't leave. This is so easily read, the words flow and everything feels so three dimensional. I will definitely read the rest of this series.

GripLitGrl @vkois88 it was such a scandalous book they've done several movie & tv mini series but the book i think it was the first book I've read that shocked me. 1y
vkois88 Now I feel like I have to read it! Lol 1y

A late post for #Day6 #RequiredReadingRedo : Not sure if these are banned books but I'm sure they would be banned if my mom knew what I was reading 🤣🤣 I was obsessed with this series when I was in high school. Lucky my parents never questioned what I read. I know better now as a parent & always love to know & talk about books we read with my kid :) #requiredreading #bannedbook

revenge4porgy I read Common Sense by Thomas Paine, Anne Frank, the entire Harry Potter Series, Judy Blume, et al 4mo

Intense. I liked the anachronistic vibe. Kind of a classic paperback drama. Now onto the movie!

Finally had the time to finish this up today, just as unsettling as in high school. I might need a palate cleanser before I work on the rest of the series though.

Finally got my hands on this!

Loric Read this years ago and really enjoyed it... If enjoy is the trigger word for a book like this! 2y

Zelma @SexyCajun there are 5 in the series. The last one tells the grandmother‘s story. They‘re not quality literature in any way, but I went through a major V.C. Andrews phase when I was a preteen/young teen. 😳😬 (edited) 2y
Conservio I loveeee this book and the Prequel to it! 2y
bookaholic1 Super great Series. The first series I ever read 2y

APLitlife Loved this series as a teen. I have all a#of my books still. 2y
BookBoggart I love this series! Re-read it every few years I've also watched the movies numerous times. I remember doing a book report of it in junior high. Not sure how I wasn't busted for appropriate reading. Lol 2y

dragondrool My first adult read. 2y
marybethmoore A classic 1y
marybethmoore @Zelma I haven't read the last book. I want to read the series again. 1y
Zelma @marybethmoore I actually really liked the last book. Each series does the same gimmick of telling the tragic/dark story of the grandmother, and they were usually my favorites. 1y
sarsonaLynn Such a great classic read! 💞 7mo
