Goodreads Book Review

Flowers in the Attic (Dollanganger, #1) Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I hadn't read this book since junior high, and there was some discussion on one of my Yahoo groups about it, so I decided to pick it up at the library and read it again. I'd forgotten how interesting it was! I couldn't put it down!
It had been so long since I read this book that it was just like reading it for the first time all over again. I forgot what happened, especially when the youngest twin got sick and how the children finally decided to escape. I think what pains me even more about this story is that even though it's a work of fiction, I could DEFINITELY see something like this happening in today's society, unfortunately. I highly recommend this book! If you're looking for a quick and easy read in a paperback, this is one. I'll be picking up the rest of the books in the series, because I don't think I ever read them all!

New pictures!


Yes, yes, I can't seem to remember to update this thing on a regular basis! Maybe I should just set a reminder in my phone. That always seems to help! Since the last time I was here, my youngest son, Joseph, made his grand appearance into the world on January 16, my husband made it home safely from Iraq when Joseph was 2 weeks old, and my oldest son Kennedy is about to wrap up his summer visit with us. It's been a crazy summer! Lots going on. Maybe I'll update all the drama with our rent house at a later point in time. I just want to get someone in there to start paying the mortgage!
