The truth will set you…wait, not really.

On a pretty sunny day they hold Vera’s funeral and Audrina finds it strange that she’s attending this particular funeral when she missed Elly’s and Billie’s. She hopes that one day she’ll be able to forgive Vera and only think about the good times. Wait…what? Which good times? When she gave you the empty box…

Sisters

Damian starts his story on the day that the First Audrina was raped, but did not, as he’d always said before, die. (Our Audrina: “Where is she then??” Damian: “Shut up a little,”) Audrina came home and though she wasn’t able to say much more than “Boys”, Lucky (who had been waiting at the door…

Audrina in a Coma

You know, you know, it’s serious. Or not, really, because what a VCA book coma means is “I am floating above the world outside of my body so that I can continue to observe those events that are going on around me and also continue to narrate this never-ending book”. Audrina is in a coma…

The Rocking Chair, and What Audrina Found There

Audrina doesn’t know why she doesn’t just head back to bed, but she doesn’t, and she seats herself in the rocking chair in an attempt to finally get some answers. Rock, rock, rocking, she gets herself into the proper state and starts to have a vision. For simplicity, I’m just going to refer to the…

Oh, Audrina.

Audrina goes running around outside in the rain like a crazy lady, yelling for Sylvia. She’s terrified that Sylvia killed Billie, and might have killed Aunt Elly too, and that Sylvia will have to be put away. Audrina trips and falls (she’s lucky she’s not built like Vera, or she’d have shattered seven times by…

More searchy goodness!

As I’m finishing up the next recap: vera by vc andrews Oh Searcher, we can only wish. What an amazing book that would be. Vera, in the Big City, doing nude modeling in her nurse’s cap and plotting the downfall of whatever hapless musician happened across her path. Plotting intricate revenge schemes and smuggling pills…

One word: Elevator.

Vera and Audrina stare each other down. Audrina can’t handle a staredown (especially not against Vera), so she starts to scoot up the stairs backwards like a little kid, and Vera calls her on it. Audrina’s response is to snap at Vera that her mother is dead. Nice. Unfazed, Vera tells Audrina that she already…

Um, yeah

Did you know that in many places, the weekend extends into the middle of the week? No? Oh. Sorry about the delay. It helps when one can find the book that they’re snarking. I will hunt it down tonight and hopefully have something up tomorrow.

She’s baaaaaack

Our newlyweds (and Sylvia) arrive home at Whitefern to find Damian waiting for them on the front porch, wearing a white suit like he’s friggin’ Tony Montana, and giving each of them (well, not Sylvia) the hairy eyeball as they walk up the steps. Damian then performs what is apparently his greeting ritual–he shakes hands…

Marry an Arden, repent…immediately.

Audrina and Sylvia meet Arden at the airport, where Arden immediately grabs Audrina up in a public-place-inappropriate kiss and she ends up losing track of  Sylvia.  A full hour later, they find her staring at the magazines at a newsstand, completely covered in chocolate ice cream from a cone some complete stranger had handed her….

Bring me the head of Arden Lowe

So here I am! No more excuses, here we go! All of the high drama of Vera’s running away and the reading of her goodbye note took place during breakfast, so Audrina has to high-tail it to get ready for school. When Audrina runs upstairs (with Sylvia in tow, natch), she discovers that Vera has…

What’s in a cover?

As a change of pace, I want to do another cover post. See, I’ve recently discovered the V.C. Andrews Cover Gallery, and thanks to that delightful site, I’ve learned that My Sweet Audrina has gotten some pretty interesting covers around the world. So let’s go! First up, is the U.S. Hardcover, er, Cover. It’s basically…
