So What’s All This?

When I was ten years old, my cousin regifted me all of her V.C. Andrews novels. I spent the next several years convinced that a story needed only evil grandparents, snotty rich girls named Clara Sue and Gisselle, and some star-crossed incest to make it a masterpiece. I’ve since looked back upon these classics and realized that if ever anything needed to be recapped on the internet, these was it. So let’s all look back at the books that taught us that old women are evil, mothers are insane, and sometimes your brother’s not your brother.

  1. Hey do her first book Flowers in the Attic and something from the newer books like “Broken Wings” that was the only one where the girls weren’t all perfect and sweet

    • The Dollanganger series is next after the Landrys.

  2. Read this story: http://www.momlogic.com/2010/02/dirty_dancing_in_the_family_ice_dancing.php

    I thought you’d appreciate it because one of the sets of siblings are named Chris and Cathy.

    • Oh for the love of Ray J.

      Chris was always sad that he couldn’t dance like Cathy. Thank god he never heard of this.

  3. Hello, what is the place in the photograph at the top?

    • I’m actually not sure, it’s a WordPress design. Sorry!

  4. thank you for posting personal summaries of the V.C. Andrews books! I’ve read almost all of the early ones (Except I never made it through Dawn… I have no idea why) your posts make me laugh, and agree, Cathy can be extremely annoying, Daphne can be a bitch, and Gisselle is one of the best characters EVER 🙂

  5. Hi Megan,

    I recently self-published a book that is nothing if not an homage to Flowers in the Attic. I would love it if you could check it out and maybe get the word out to other V.C. lovers that it exists. Click here if you’re interested and thanks so much for your awesome and funny website.

    THIS IS NOT SPAM, I SWEAR ON MY MOM.

    • Hey! Sorry about the delay, I’ve had guests and wedding stuff and oh you know the drill! I will definitely check this out!

      Thanks so much!

      -Megan

    • So, as you can tell, I am a terrible person who has just really started to catch up on things what with the wedding and work and blah blah, but I wanted to let you know that I’m reading the book this weekend and I’m really looking forward to it!
